Really amazing. I am glad you are here with us.

I struggle to balance everything in my life, and honestly, my health and fitness do often suffer. I am embarrassed to admit, me, a paleo recipe blogger, someone passionate about holistic wellness and self-love, is someone who skips meals or doesn't make it off my couch some days! I am excited to start 8 weeks with the whole life challenge to see how just a few minutes every day can help me restore some balance to my crazy life!
The Whole Life Challenge starts on May 20th and there is room on our team- join us! We will be posting recipes and writing a bit about our experience, but would be thrilled to have our tribe by our side! I would like to develop a few more amazing delicious and easy AIP recipes, like this Lemon Basil Chicken, come change your life with us!!
