Hi, friends! I’m Liz.
I’m here to make cleaning up your diet AND your lifestyle for a healthy body, natural fertility, and happy skin easy and FUN.
I’m a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), a best-selling author, and a food, fertility & natural skincare nut.
Ever wonder why it seems like EVERYONE is struggling with their diet? Why we all know someone with fertility or skin problems?
Is it possible that we’ve been told a whole bunch of LIES about what it truly takes to be healthy?
And, quite frankly, that ticks me off to no end.
That’s why I’ve devoted my practice, my books, my podcasts AND this website to CRUSHING myths and revealing the TRUTH about food, fertility and skincare so you can feel great – and get everything you want out of life!
(HINT: when it comes to food, fertility, and skin health – they’re all connected!)
At one time, I was 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 working.
Turns out – we’ve been fed a LOT of lies about what it takes to get 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.
This site is about everything you need to know, from food (and recipes!) to natural fertility to safe skincare and beyond. It’s about eating REAL FOOD, moving your body right, and ditching unnecessary and irritating chemicals from your daily life.
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 podcasts, in my skincare guide, and in my online course.
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 got 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. PS: sign up for Email Monday here.)
Pictured below: me with my amazing husband and one of our sweet pooches. They’re awesome, and they make appearances now and then.
(Not pictured: child, goats, ducks, chickens, cows, guinea fowl, hogs, cows, Scout. It’s impossible to wrangle all of ’em at once.)
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 Real Food family. I’m so glad you’re here!
If you’re ready for lots more, check out my Wall Street Journal best-seller Eat the Yolks and the Purely Primal Skincare Guide. You can also sign up for updates on my upcoming Baby Making and Beyond program.
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!
