I’m Rebecca, “that organic mom”, wife and mom to six kids from 28 to 11. I’ve been a mom more than half of my life…

I’m very passionate about health and nutrition; especially helping kids eat healthy at home as well as at school. It all started back in 2003 when my son started struggling in school. I was desperately trying to figure out how to help him when I found out I had a kidney stone. I knew there must be a natural remedy.
That is when my passion for natural living, nutrition and food as medicine began. I studied how food affects behavior in children and how to make changes to our diets.
My family became my daily experiment as we tried different eating styles from gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, raw vegan, green smoothies (for two years during my 5th pregnancy and ended up giving birth to a 12 pound baby boy at home) then gradually adding in healthy meats and eventually settling on a Simple Whole Foods Diet.
I believe with patience, low stress, quality sleep and the proper diet most modern illness can be more effectively using natural methods.
During the initial learning phase I shared much of what I was discovering with my friends and family through a newsletter I called “Planting Seeds.” I wanted to help everyone achieve my goal of being healthy, staying fit, feeling young, being active and enjoying life. These are still my goals and the reason why I created this website.
Here you can open up about things like natural or home birthing, early infant potty training, eating a Traditional Diet instead of the Standard American Diet, adding fats to our diet, skipping sodas and diet sodas, not using candy for rewards, or zero waste!
Speaking of children, here’s a little bit about each of my six children:
