Meet The Family

She’s a lot a bit dramatic, 100% girl, and deathly afraid of spiders. Her favorite things in life are her incredibly sexy hubby, and her beautiful and full of life darling daughters. (Oh and her kitchen whisk!) If she had to name her favorite food, it would be a battle between a carb and dark chocolate. Yet of coarse, she lives off of green smoothies and foods of the earth and tries her best to feed the family whole and natural foods. Whole-heartedly she believes “Our Bodies are Temples” and we must treat them that way.

An extremely hard working man, sports junkie, and owner of 547 pairs of white shoes. His daughters have him wrapped around their tiny little fingers, and he has a hard time saying no to his very convincing and beautiful wife. His smile can melt anyone’s heart, and his eyes will make you fall in love. Healthy foods aren’t his forte, yet he lovingly takes bites of greens that are often shoved in his face.

Princess and ruler over all the household, who sings, dances, and tells it like it’s nobody’s business. Her shining personality can make smiles and laughter fill the room. While her ability to love and give hugs and kisses can make anyone feel warmth in their heart and soul. She hates sleeping, and has since the day she was born. If allowed, she would consume a huge flat of berries all in one sitting.

She’s a sweet, innocent, and loving little cuddle bunny. She offers a smile when anyone needs it, and is always there to make you feel better. She sits back and let’s her older sister do the talking, and often times would much rather cuddle and sleep, than play. Foods aren’t her forte at the moment, but soon enough she will taste the deliciousness it has to offer!

  12. Hi, love your blog and family….you are adorable and I totally agree on your philosophy on healthy eating. I recently (6 months ago) lost my older sister to colon cancer. It spring boarded me into taking better care of myself and especially eating better…..I cut out gluten and dairy and feel so great, I haven’t looked back….and my daughter, Erin, made your Quinoa, tomatoe, basil salad for me for Mother’s Day….It has become my new favorite and I will be making it all the time from now on….so thank you and I will be trying more of your recipes too. Thanks so much and keep up the great blog!

  13. P.S….I am the mother of two wonderful daughters too…..Mine are 31 and 26…..I love being their mom and we are all best friends!!!!

  14. Hi Ari,
    I just have to tell you that I’m addicted to reading your blog! You have a beautiful family and your posts truly inspire me to want to incorporate healthier living in my home. I have 4 girls (ages 12, 10, 9 & 1) and we are always on the go, so sometimes it’s difficult to eat as healthy as I want us to – so I give you credit! I have a brother and sister who both went to school for nutrition, so I’m aware of how important it is to treat our bodies as temples. I admire you for all you do and the creative foods you make that look so yummy, yet healthy at the same time. I am definitely going to try some of the recipes I’ve seen you post. I’ve already started cooking everything with coconut oil, although I have to say I’m not a big fan of coconut. I bouoght the Nutiva Virgin Organic kind. Do you suggest one that doesn’t have as strong of a flavor? Thanks! God bless, and keep blogging! :-) ~ Kerilee

    • Hi Kerilee!
      So glad to hear that you value healthy living! Thank you for all your kind comments! :)
      And I am a big fan of coconut oil, and maybe I’m weird but I’ve never tasted a strong coconut flavor from the oil. It definitely doesn’t taste like butter or olive oil, I think it has a more nutty flavor. As for brands, I have tried Tropical Traditions which is an online company. Otherwise I usually buy the brand that is on sale, since it can be kind of expensive. Otherwise maybe use it in baking rather than cooking veggies that way you don’t taste the flavor as much. Hope that helps, and thanks again for your comment!
