Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
I’ve made 500 posts here (counting this one), through thick and through thin. My diet went from general (but mostly whole foods), through mostly Paleo / Weston-Price, through needing MORE fiber in my life (more legumes and grains/pseudograins), to retirement and moving north, adding in homesteading posts, to what I’ll call a Paleo-Influenced food plan.

Where Are You On Your Natural Living Journey? Where are you on your journey towards creating a more natural environment for yourself, your family and your home? Are you new to the world of essential oils and trying to figure out the best way to get started? Are you an essential oil novice who…
From Sarah: I love using essential oils. I buy from multiple places. I love Simply Earth. They are a wonderful company. Their prices are affordable and their oils are great. They give a lot of support through videos and articles. I am a fan of their SUBSCRIPTION BOXES.
It’s that time of the year again, the smell of cheese ball and Aunt Betty’s infamous bacon wrapped shrimp is floating in the air. If you are trying to eat a more whole foods plant-based diet the holiday season can certainly be a challenge. But don’t let the festivities of the season discourage you from […]
“Turkey, baked mac-and-cheese, and stuffing are all Thanksgiving dinner showstoppers. But real talk: unless you add some fiber to your plate, you’re not going to be feeling all that festive later. Thanksgiving salad doesn’t get the same level of accolades as other starring dishes, but it should. After all, a diet high in fiber is linked to a cornucopia of health benefits, including reduced inflammation, boosted metabolism, and a happy gut.
All the Thanksgiving salad recipes rounded up here are not only full of the nutrient, they’re also quite delicious, thank you very much. From traditional salads loaded with greens to ones made with other veggies such as sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts, to even ones served warm, here are 20 Thanksgiving salad recipes to choose from.”
From Sarah : Check these wonderful salads out. Don’t wait !
“This is the first year I am going into the holiday season as someone who eats whole food plant based (aka healthy vegan, more on WFPB here) 90% of the time. I’ve shared this before, but about 1-2 times a month, I’ll have seafood at a restaurant. Also, ya girl still loves extra virgin olive oil, so I haven’t completely cut oils out, though I am mindful of how much I use. Maybe one day I’ll cut this out completely, but today is not that day. Regardless, eating WFPB means I need to plan ahead this holiday season so I can enjoy the holidays without stressing.”
I’m sitting here, bundled up, watching The Great Christmas Baking Show, and I almost can’t contain myself…I LOVE the holidays! I would watch Christmas movies every night if it was just me. But Thanksgiving comes first… so I am going to try to stay focused. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year… […]
My sweet baby boy was born Oct. 21 2019 at 12:14 P.M. after a traumatic delivery. I had planned on a full-on natural delivery at a birth center, but baby had other plans (see full birth story coming soon). I am now 2 weeks postpartum, and I wanted to give new moms a list of things I REALLY have used so they can see how much isn’t needed, and maybe see some things they would have never thought about needing. If this sounds helpful to you or someone you know, please feel free to SHARE this on Facebook or Pinterest!!
From Sarah : If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you would already know of Neisha and her husband. I have been following both of them for years now. I started following Neisha’s husband 3 years ago when I started eating healthier. His name is Ken D Berry MD. I was needing help with my health issues. Mainly Lupus and Autoimmune Diseases. I was also going through a terrible Postmenopausal Season. Mood Swings. Depression. Anger Issues. Hot Flashes. I started following everything Dr. Berry wrote. I quickly learned how great him and his wife were together. @KenDBerryMD Facebook Plus he has a HUGE Youtube Channel Check Out His Keto 101 Videos https://youtu.be/xwKmVjSXTDk?list=PL48jnTudSMf_4z7qfiymmOf-xbYJJUSDX
I quickly became a huge fan of Neisha’s. Neisha Salas-Berry She fascinates me. She’s into fashion and I am NOT. Yet, I read everything. Neisha Loves It is her Brand. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Anyway, Check out Neisha and Ken’s IVF story from start to delivery. It’s fascinating. Very informational. Honest.
