Ready to learn how to juggle your busy family schedule and still have time for a more healthy eating routine?
Let’s get started.
Hi there. My name is Christina. Welcome to my blog about my family’s real food journey. I started this blog in 2012 to document our journey and encourage others to make the change to healthier eating. I was stunned to find out how much misinformation is out there. Together we can weed through the nonsense to get through to the truth.
I started my real food journey like many do. I didn’t fell well. I had a year where I had two surgeries and felt like I had the flu everyday. Because I was always feeling sick, it started to affect my busy life. I started to miss important events with my family. I was moody and miserable! Once I switched from fast and processed food to Real Food, I started to feel better. Wow! The difference was amazing. What the heck was that fast and processed food doing to my family? I certainly am not proud of how poorly we used to eat, but I am proud of the progress we have made. We are just a real family doing the best we can at Juggling Real Food and Real Life.
