about

After I moved to a remote town with a population of 7200, I didn't have a lot to do for a while. While I searched for work and finding my place, I decided to get focused on the things I thought were important: living and eating in a healthy way, and, for the first time in my life, to grow a garden to eat from! 
I've been passionate about health & nutrition as preventative medicine forever. But after moving, I wanted to live a more natural way of life; growing a garden, baking & cooking basics, cutting out sugar.

Making my own products: toothpastebody butter, deodorant and room spray, was the next logical step. Blogging has been a great way to encourage my experiments and share my journey. I use my blog to store and share recipes. 
I have a major sweet tooth but know that sugar is really unhealthy. I've worked for years on my love of sweets, to make recipes to satisfy, (this one is a favourite).  'Treat' making with alternative flours and sweeteners like xylitol and stevia is especially fun.  Though in honesty, I've nearly done away with sweets and don't reach for them more than a couple times a month. 

I design and maintain my blog. It's a happy pursuit (most of the time) and always a work in progress. Continuing to learn how to make it look good and be easy to read keeps me striving onward. I'm glad you found me and I hope you like what you read.

  1. Your blog is great! (Came here via the FBC email). I'm especially inspired to try making peanut butter cups now (I just need a sweet silicon pan thingy like you have!).
    Thanks,
