Fat Heather is dead. I'm so excited to tell you that the baby weight is gone! My goal was to be back to my pre-baby weight by the end of April and thanks to breastfeeding, lots of exercising, friends, prayer, and clean eating, I'm healthy, strong, and back in my clothes. I thought I would share a little of that journey as a means to encourage others. This definitely isn't the only way to lose weight, or medical advice, or me trying to brag about how skinny I am. I just had a pregnant gal tell me this week she'd never wear a bikini again, and that's just not true. Think about this post as more of a journal or a coffee date, and less of a method.Read More
Hi there! It's been a bit since we've posted... Sorry about that. A nasty virus kind of knocked our family off the grid. Illness is so different with kids. Instead of being down for a few days, your watching it cycle through the family for a few weeks. But, we are better and we made pizza to prove it.
Gluten-free pizza is a little depressing sometimes. You'll order a fancy gluten-free pizza and then end up with an flimsy, cardboard crust while your friends are munching on fluffy slices of gluten-filled goodness. Not anymore. This pizza recipe is fast but yields a chewy, thin crust. (Here's our deep dish pie.) My favorite part of this recipe? I can whip it up in under a hour. So when Jason wants to order a pizza, I can make a little pan pizza for myself in the time it takes the delivery guy to get here. Score!
We piled on olives, tomatoes, kale, and turkey sausage for to give things a light, but hearty, Mediterranean flavor, but you can really use any topping you want. Enjoy!Read More

Sometimes, you need a healthy muffin. Not all muffins can be the fluffy, delicious, thousand-calorie-per-bite muffins that dwell in pastry cases. But, just because it's good for you doesn't mean it has to taste like dirt either. Say hello to whole grain carrot muffins.Read More
