Hi! I'm Elizabeth...

and I'm on a mission to live a simple healthy life in a not so simple world, all while encouraging and inspiring others who are trying to do the same!  I love healthy, simple and sustainable living.  Growing my own food, preserving it and cooking from scratch are my passions.

 I focus a lot on food, but I also believe in overall health and wellness including, fitness, avoiding household chemicals and toxins 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!
