Howdy! My name is Jess. I live in Dallas and am a gluten-free wife and stay at home (homeschooling) mama to two beautiful girls, Emma (5) and Sophia (2). I wanted to start this blog to chronicle my adventures of being a mom and to show the alternative (or ‘crunchy’ as my hubby calls them) methods I’ve used in rearing them.
It was never my intent to be crunchy, but once I started to do some research and realized there were alternative ways, it was all over! I have tried various techniques with my daughters that I never thought existed in a million years but have actually enjoyed seeing what’s out there. My goal is to be as clean/green as I can in our daily life with a strong focus on incorporating healthy foods into our ‘diet.’
I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was 18 months old and have been on a strict gluten-free diet for over 12 years (thanks to meeting my future hubby, Josh). My family started on a journey to go Paleo in 2011 and I have no intentions of ever turning back! This is the best I have ever felt even while being gluten-free/paleo, so I know it’s the path for me and my family.
Come join me as I show you crunchy ways to rear your child or just make your life a lot cleaner. Take a dive into the world of Paleo eating so you too can feel great and feed your body powerful fuel while taking care of your family in the process.
Thanks for stopping by…now let’s get crunchy!
