Our Story

We are two over-scheduled moms with a passion for healthy eating and living well.  Between the two of us we have 6 kids (3 apiece) each with their own eating personalities.  They range from easy to please  to nearly impossible.  We want to grow our sprouts with lots of nutritious local produce and grains.  We want our kids to know where their food comes from and that it didn’t originate in a box!

We graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as Certified Holistic Wellness Coaches, and are excited to share the abundance of knowledge we have gained. It is so easy for busy moms to fall into the convenience food rut.  It may be easier to grab a bag of frozen food or zip through the drive-thru, but it IS possible to look at food in a new way.  We don’t have it all figured out quite yet either, but join us as we set out to grow our sprouts into healthy people. They will then pass their healthy living habits onto their own children. Together, let’s grow our families in health and wellness and break the cycle of  mindless consumption.

Just some food for thought….

“There is an issue of vital importance that most well-meaning parents don’t know about. They don’t know because nobody has told them. The issue is this: the modern diet that most children are eating today creates a fertile cellular environment for cancer to emerge at a later age. Childhood diets create adult cancers. That’s right: when our children don’t eat fruits and vegetables and instead are fed junk food, the groundwork may be laid for cancer and other diseases down the road.”   Dr. Joel Furhman, author Disease Proof Your Child.

  1. Hi Melissa! Lisa M. told me about your new venture and turned me on to your blog–I love it! It’s great that you are spreading the word about healthy eating and balanced living! Since going vegetarian a year ago, I too am so much more aware of the unhealthy messages we and our kids receive about nutrition. I’ll be following you–best wishes!

  2. I agree that you can’t help but look at the alarming number of people with cancer (many still in their 30’s) and wonder about external links to lifestyle. Thanks for sharing healthy recipes!
