Hi! I am Kristin.

I’m so glad you’re here!

I’m all about simple natural living and real food: sipping homemade lattes, enjoying great chocolate, and sourcing more natural cleaning and body care products.

I’m married to Dustin, my teenage sweetheart and partner in the craziness of this life for eleven years. I’m a former first grade teacher and curriculum developer turned full-time recipe developer, food photographer, and full-time mom of two spunky little people:

Piper: My adventurous, dirt-attracting, (homemade) pizza-loving seven year-old boy.

Londyn: My spunky, strawberry-loving, princess-obsessed five year-old girl.

My Family

I’m about returning to a time before processed food. A time when families worked together in the kitchen to enjoy real food that was grown and raised by trusted farms or backyard gardens. I’m constantly in search of ways to nourish my family: finding local farms, sourcing real food from every day stores, and getting back into the kitchen and around the table. I’m always exploring practical ways to provide my family with nourishing food within our budget.

I love to share my real food tips and ideas for feeding the entire family nourishing real food. Email subscribers receive exclusive information featuring my best tips and tricks for nourishing a family, a free month-long printable meal plan example, and two real food and natural crash courses. Joining the Live Simply email family is always free! 

Along with simplifying real food, I love to share my recipes and tips for creating a simplified, natural home. I regularly share my simple natural-living recipes, such as: homemade facial cleansermakeup remover balm5-Minute laundry soapall-purpose cleaner, and much more. I also share tips for prioritizing what to make versus buy, along with my favorite store-bought products for cleaning and body care. Because living a more natural lifestyle isn’t about “doing it all” or “making it all.” Natural living is just as much about simplifying as it is about using more natural products.

I’m all about nourishing and simplifying life with good food, clean products, and simple routines. Let me help you simplify your wellness journey
