Hi! I'm Elizabeth...

and I'm on a mission to live a simple healthy life in a not so simple world while encourage others who are trying to do the same!  I love simple and sustainable living.  Growing my own food, preserving it and cooking from scratch are my passions.  I focus a lot on food, but other areas of simple living are equally as important including green cleaning and my never ending battle with reducing waste and ditching plastic.  If you are also passionate about these things, you're in the right place!
