Hi, I’m Kristie. I know what it is like to feel unhealthy and overwhelmed with life. Life can be a challenge sometimes! But, I have learned a lot over the past few decades of living, and I share a lot of it on Healthy and Lovin’ It. You will find lots of ways to be a healthy and balanced mom on this blog. Whether you need help with healthy eating, non toxic living, or mom life, you will find it here!
For many years, I struggled with fatigue and other health problems. I had many days when I wondered if I could ever feel really good again. I went to many doctor appointments and spent countless hours researching. After I had spent a lot of money and time on my health I realized 2 things:
- I could get better!
- It was probably going to be a process.
- household products
- personal care products and makeup
- herbal remedies
I have also extensively researched many remedies for my own health problems-including polycystic ovarian syndrome, IBS, and chronic fatigue. My sincere hope is that you can benefit from my posts, and find your own health answers. I am not a doctor, but I can share what I have found to work for me and for others I know. Food has been an integral part of my health journey. I have researched all different types of food, food brands, and food allergies/intolerances. After I research a food I research again until I find the cheapest source possible. I will definitely be sharing what I have found with you so that you can live a very healthy life even if you need to be very frugal!
Speaking of frugality, if you are interested in saving money, I have plenty of frugal living articles. I can stretch a dollar pretty far-I am especially good at grocery shopping. If you are on a tight budget, sign up for my cheap clean eating grocery list here.
One more thing about me-I love to teach. Teaching has been a part of my life for a long time. Before I had kids, I taught piano, math, and Sunday school. For the past 16 years I have homeschooled. I like to make resources for kids, so you will find coloring sheets (like these elephant ones) on my blog.
I make other kinds of printables as well. Many are free! I am a mom, so many of my printables are helpful for organizing your mom life.
My Etsy shop has all kinds of printables including:
