About Me

A Food Blog dedicated to following a whole food plant-based lifestyle.

Hi! My name is Mandy. Welcome to my blog! I want to make this blog a little piece of me and the life that I live; the things that make me tick! Come along with me on my journey to freedom – freedom to live without fear, freedom through discovering health, and freedom through uncovering who I really am and living my life without worrying what others think of me! Now THAT is true freedom.

 I’m a stay-at-home mom with four beautiful girls and an amazing, supportive husband. I run a small soap business from home. I love to watercolor, do crafts, experiment in the kitchen, sew, and garden. You can find my soap business  at  www.wildacornsoaps.com  I love being creative! 

Recently, I have discovered Whole Food Plant Based Eating and I am so in love with it! In the past, I have never felt quite right about the “healthy” guidelines given by our government. Something just seemed amiss to me, but I didn’t know a better way. Until now. Now I know. Here on this blog I will share with you my favorite discoveries and recipes from this new amazing world I’ve discovered.

I love to play in the dirt! Garden dirt, that is! I don’t especially have a green thumb like my parents and sisters, but I love it just the same! I can’t wait to plant something every spring. 

I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Southern Utah University in Family and Consumer Science. For any oldies, that’s just a different title for Home Ec. All I have ever aspired to be is a mother. I am blessed to be a mother to four beautiful daughters, who are all growing up to be more than I ever could have dreamed, despite my own shortcomings as a mother.

I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Notice I did not say a perfect follower, but a devoted follower! I strive each day to follow Him, falling many times before each day is over, but I keep trying! You can too!

We built our own home and moved into it at the beginning of December 2018. We haven’t finished it yet, but it is a HUGE accomplishment for our family! Creating a loving and nurturing environment for my family is a top priority for me. I want our home to be a refuge from the storms and stresses outside of our walls. I love to just be home!

I’d love to have you join me on my little adventures. I promise to give you some helpful ideas along the way.
