Hi, my name is Elke, pronounced Elka, thanks for visiting my page!
I am 40 years old, have a handsome husband of 16 years, and four awesome kids, and I love to cook for them….most days.
I have always loved healthy foods but…. Alongside my bag of Doritos, Jiff peanut butter, and a big tub of country crock butter, who knew all that was bad?
After having my firstborn Aubrey I started paying more attention to the labels on our foods and noticed things like “non-GMO,” and “no MSG”. These sparked my interest and I started investigating. I was surprised at all the harmful ingredients they were adding to our food and everyday products! Don’t these people have families??
I took baby steps in transforming the meals I was putting in front of my family to eat. I got rid of one bad thing at a time, started making more things from scratch, and cleverly snuck good things into my kid’s food to transform it into something healthy. My love for health inspired me to become a Certified Health Coach, which was a big accomplishment with our busy family.
Here I am 10 years later, not perfect but better off than I was when I started. I am still on this journey to becoming healthy.
I hope you will check out my blog and become inspired to eat healthier and make better choices for your family. Change doesn’t have to happen all at once, but one thing at a time.
