Hi, friends! I'm Liz.
I'm here sharing everything I know about real food, safer beauty, and healthy babies & families with you!
(Translation: I write things, I record things, and I'm fully exhausted while doing it.)
At one time, I was confused about food, unhealthy, unhappy with my body, struggling with acne and whacked-out hormones, and wondering why all the diets, low-fat food, soy milk and CARDIO CARDIO CARDIO weren't making me the picture of health, beauty, and fertility.
Welp, turns out – we've been fed a LOT of lies about what it takes to be fundamentally healthy.
Once I uncovered all those lies, my life completely changed. Crazy diets and nonstop cardio? Done. Acne and a bucket of skin meds? Gone. Hormonal imbalance, horrible sleep, napping under my work desk, and hating my body every second of every day? No more.
And from there, I was able to start (and feed!) a healthy family. To me, there's nothing more priceless than that.
If I can do it, you can DEFINITELY do it.
My food philosophy is simple: just eat real freakin' food. No micro-managing, no agonizing. Whether you call the food I eat “clean,” Paleo, Primal, unprocessed, or just the food humans are meant to eat, it's all the same thing: real, healthy, perfect, delicious, WHOLE food.
To keep it simple: just eat all the amazing, unprocessed foods that have always been food. Nothing out of a box, a bag, and nothing synthesized in a lab. (ew.)
Eating real food means ditching nutrition dogma and processed gunk. It's a healthy, delicious, and life-changing shift.
It helped balance my hormones, stabilize my weight, clear my skin and prepare my body for a healthy pregnancy. And that's what I talk about here, in my book, on my podcast, in my skincare guide, and in my online courses (here and here).
I share plenty more fun, personal details from my life here on my website, too.
I'm married to my best friend, and we have an amazing little girl who keeps us bone-tired and blissfully happy. We've also had a rotating cast of dogs, cows, goats, chickens, guinea fowl, ducks, and a whole mess of other living things at our farmstead.
Check out a bit more about my homestead life in the video below!
(Yep, in the video, I said “set a spell.” I'm a regular Jed Clampett these days.)
Pictured below: me with my amazing husband and our original pooch, who was my first (giant) baby.
Bottom line: around here, we cut through the myths and get right to the truth – and we have fun while we do it. This is about getting healthy, happy, balancing hormones, clearing troubled skin, getting WELL, and loving life.
One thing that works against all that? Rigid, uncompromising judgment or pass/fail food ideals. No punishments, no falling off the wagon, no diet dogma bullshit here. Because THAT STUFF NEVER WORKS. I'm done with that, and I hope you are too.
Welcome to my family. I’m so glad you’re here!

Thanks for reading!
(and the rest of the gang!)
PS: I'm prone to dumb jokes and (dated) (extremely dated) (extraordinarily dated) pop culture references. Please forgive me. But honestly, I think what really makes life worth living are copious references to Clueless, Princess Bride, and The Jerk.
PPS: To take all this a step further, remember: we need nourishment from more than just food.
We also need to:
- give ourselves permission to stress less and sleep more;
- nourish our bodies FROM THE OUTSIDE with safe skincare;
- do less obsessive exercise and more natural, fun movement (think taking a long walk or dancing like an idiot to Gloria Estefan's Conga – yes, I'm serious);
- nourish our souls with the activities, the ideas, and the people that bring us joy;
- get over all the other stuff: the agonizing, the self-judgment, the calorie-counting. It's a waste of time and a waste of life. AND IF YOU WANT SUSTAINABLE RESULTS, HERE'S THE TRUTH: IT DOESN'T. FREAKING. WORK.
Most importantly, we need to give ourselves permission to like our darn selves, wherever we are in our personal journey.
That's the type'o stuff I love to talk about here. Welcome!
