Hello and welcome to Goodniss blog! My name is Amy and here you will find my journey to better health and living well by choosing healthier food options and taking care of myself. It’s been quite a journey . I have chosen to eat free of gluten, refined sugar and processed dairy when I can. I’ve learned that some times I can tolerate wheat and dairy and save these moments for when I am traveling and healthier options just are not available. This is what works for me on my journey.  I enjoy writing about topics that bring me joy like cooking, baking, fermenting, health, gardening, traveling, crafting and making other forms of art. I also enjoy writing about life and the journey that I’m on.

Making art is my first passion and creating nourishing foods is my second. It is my goal to show you how to still eat well for your body without feeling deprived. It’s easy and it is fun! By substituting alternative ingredients in traditional recipes I have found that I am still able to enjoy my food. I encourage you to shop organic when possible and to purchase pasture raised eggs and meats to ensure you are getting the best nutrients for yourself. This can be challenging for your budget and especially if you live in an area where “organic” is not that available. I’m here to share with you that it is doable.

Living a long healthy life, free from disease, is my motivation. I also want to have a family one day and the healthier that I can become for myself will only greater benefit them.

I love learning and growing. Thank you for stopping in and reading. I hope I have inspired you on your journey to health, eating well, and encouraging your creativity.
