Hi there, I’m Karielyn! I’m a wife and mother of three (daughter 20 years old, son 7 years old and son 5 years old) and I’ve been married for 24 years. I try very hard to make sure my family has healthy, nutrient-dense and wholesome foods to eat and that we avoid detrimental foods that can destroy and undermine our health.  Since I purchase the groceries and prepare the meals for our family, I do not take this responsibility lightly – it has always been my number one priority since embracing healthier food choices over 7 years ago. love to make everything I can from scratch and avoid processed foods as much as possible.  I'm very proud to have two young boys who love kale, goji berries, hemp seeds and my green smoothies. I am passionate about eating and buying healthy, organic, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods and ingredients and hope I can relay some of that passion with you.   On my website, The Healthy Family and Home, I share easy to make raw, vegan and gluten-free recipes using clean, wholesome ingredients.  I also provide "5 Fast Facts" about the key ingredients in the recipes I post listing the nutritional benefits of each one so you can "feel good about what you eat". No matter what diet plan you follow, I want to help you make healthier food choices, read ingredient labels and learn about what's in the foods you eat. Eat like it matters...because it does!
