Your Hosts

We’re the busy parents of two kids, cats, dogs, chickens, and a peacock (who just showed up one day unannounced)!

Casey: I’m a regular guy with a desk job and would officially list my hobbies as woodworking, cooking, hunting, and backpacking. I have a knack for cooking, and love to experiment and share.  So this place is my spot to post recipes and thoughts on cooking for a healthy, active lifestyle and to show you that anyone really can eat this way and not miss out on enjoying their food.  Maybe with a little help, a few recipes, and the real-world experience from someone else to lean on, others can get past the excuses and give it a try!


Karen: I am a mom who has a Masters degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine. I volunteer/work at a local, organic farm.  I help others attain their nutrition and lifestyle goals for great health and happiness!  I enjoy hiking, backpacking, farming, gardening, sewing, photography, and reading.   I believe it is important to buy and sell local as much as possible. Support your local farmer.  We need more young farmers!  I love showing how easy and delicious healthful cooking can be and it doesn’t take a lot of time. Thanks for checking out the blog!  If you try a recipe, make a comment.  Spread the word!
