Hi! I’m Heather.
I love to make a mess in the kitchen, take way too many photos, and explore new places. I’m a Texas girl who married a northern California boy with the last name of Love, hence the name, THE SIMPLE LOVE! We live in the Texas hill country with our very opinionated and talkative toddler, Asher. (+ another baby boy arriving in September)!
When I was 6, my first grade teacher asked all the students what we wanted to be when we grew up. I proudly announced, a pastry chef! She chuckled; she must have thought I was either genius or insane. I’ll never know. My bakery had a name, and often after school, I’d jot down a recipe, put on my chef hat, and start baking! When my mom discovered my dream job, she kindly informed me that pastry chef’s often arrive at 4am to work. I was shocked. I knew I needed to find a different outlet for my dream job.
After Asher was born, I struggled a lot with digestive problems. I was in search for the “perfect diet” and to be “super mom.” My unrealistic goals lead me to an unhealthy relationship with food. I lost my energy, my passion, and my joy. During this time, I decided to study nutrition. Along the way, I discovered I desperately needed some balance in my life. I also needed to correct my mindset. It was encouraging to see my joy and motivation slowly come back. I let myself find enjoyment in food again, instead of it controlling me.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, but a love for food. As a Certified Nutrition Coach, I’m passionate about promoting the healing power of real food! As a mom, I know how exhausting but rewarding motherhood can be. Health doesn’t have to be so complicating and mothering doesn’t have to be so perfect. It’s about the imperfect moments and memories that don’t always make it to the camera.
I serve the mama’s who are looking for simple solutions at mealtime, healthy options their kids want to eat, and natural alternatives for a healthy home and life. As a mom, providing health for both you and your family can seem overwhelming and exhausting! I’ve been there!
I hope to encourage and show you how you can live a healthy and natural lifestyle with simple solutions through recipes, guides, and resources so you can focus on what really matters.
Here’s a look into our healthy, not so perfect, happy home!
