Hi! I’m Heather.
I hope to simplify healthy living for you.
I’m a wife, mama of 3 little ones and certified nutrition coach. We live in the Texas hill country where we homeschool, love to cook and try to travel as much as possible. I’m a Texas girl who married a northern Cali boy with the last name of Love, which brought me to the name of this blog, The Simple Love. 🙂
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, pull out my old-school camera, 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.
In my early 20’s, I had the opportunity to travel the world as a model in the fashion industry. The challenges of finding my way around a new town, sharing a model apartment with girls from all over the world and learning pieces of a new language developed a craving in me of wanting to continue to try new foods and explore new places.
Fast forward to motherhood. After my first baby was born, I struggled with digestive problems, anxiety and fatigue.
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, something that always sparked my interest. 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 and life again, instead of it controlling me.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, but over the years I have discovered a passion for raising my little ones, cooking, and creating a healthy environment in our home, body and mind. I’m a full on health nerd who loves to research the latest health articles and experiment to see what works for our family.
I hope you will join me on this health journey, and that this will be a place you can find encouragement.
