Hi! I’m Heather.
I’m a wife, mama of 2 little boys (Asher & Judah), and a certified holistic nutrition coach.
We live in the Texas hill country where we 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. 🙂
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.
Fast forward to motherhood. After my first baby was born, I struggled a lot with digestive problems 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 a love for food and health. As a nutrition coach, I’m passionate about promoting the healing power of real foods. As a mom, I work to create the healthiest and yummiest foods for my boys. 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.
