Our Crazy Blessed Life

Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Healthy living has always been a struggle for me, but as I get older I want to set a good example for my kids. They need to see healthy living as exciting and fun.

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

My neighbor and friend Amy Roth (author of the kids book “Captain Kale and the Super Foods”) is passionate about kids eating healthy and has been an inspiration to me in the kitchen!

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

I am in the process of finding more healthy go-to meals for my family, but one of our favorites is apples with almond butter, grilled chicken and a side of steamed vegetables.

Do you have any tips for families who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes?

Just do it! Make a menu and stick with it. Find some fun activities and go together as a family!

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

No, but I know that there are certain foods I shouldn’t buy because they won’t last more than a few hours in our house!

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

I ran the Nashville half marathon last year. Consistency was key! The weeks I was inconsistent made running harder. Find something you love a jump in with both feet!

What is your favorite Cascade Ice flavor and why?

I love the coconut! It makes me feel like there is a little summer in the midst of the oncoming winter.
