Welcome to a safe place filled with the sarcastic, unapologetic ramblings of a working parent and quick, healthy recipes. We are a bit different here, because we think it’s ok to show how chaotic life really is. I drink beer, cuss a little and love my job, family and my kid. I’m in the process of learning how to parent with a chronic illness. That’s a heavy load, and I know I’m not the only one here feeling a bit overwhelmed. Let’s support each other in this crazy journey called motherhood instead of pretending we’ve got it all figured out!
All the recipes I share are weeknight friendly for us working folk, and healthy. Most are 30 minutes end to end, and are typically Paleo and AIP complaint. I’m a master corner cutter, so all the recipes are #instaworthy with minimum effort. They also include tips how to meal prep to make them even easier if that’s your jam. We all deserve to eat healthy without spending our life (and bank account) in the kitchen.
Mommahood is hard you guys. We all know it, so let’s be raw, real and unapologetic. Only then can we truly support each other through the good and the bad. Some posts are going to make you go “wow, I am so glad I’m not alone in feeling that way” and some posts will be shared learnings on how to work through things or make the chaos a little less “End of Days” and a little more “Brady Bunch”.
Work & life Balance
Just because I am pretty sure this isn’t something that can be perfectly achieved doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying. I’ll share what’s worked for me and what hasn’t. Being a working mom is a lot to juggle, and some sense of balance is important so you don’t completely lose your mind and run for the hills. Don’t fake act so surprised…..we’ve all thought about it!
Oh Momma, I’ve been there and it was really, really rough. Now that I’m out on the other end of it I want to support you. Please, you do not need to be alone in this journey. Writing about it has been cathartic for me, but I also want to be there for you however I can. Feel free to message me if you need to talk to someone that understands.
ENDOMETRIOSIS & ADENOMYOSIS ADVOCACY
I am 1 in 10. Someone whose pelvic pain has taken over their life and basically rendered them disabled. This disease is powerful and so misunderstood, which is why most women are not diagnosed on average for 7 years. It’s time to stop the stigma around female issues. Let’s talk about it! It’s time to educate ourselves and others about the female body. And most of all, let’s band together to advocate for better care and understanding of this illness in the medical world. We deserve proper care and the ability to live the life we deserve.
