About Me


My name is Jackie and I am a food and fitness blogger living in Alexandria, VA. I am a whole foodie – which means I try to eat as many whole, unprocessed foods as I can. It’s not always easy – and I’m coming up with new tips and tricks for fitting this eating philosophy into a busy life! πŸ™‚ I love to read health blogs, magazines, and watch cooking/health shows for the latest and greatest ideas on how to get my life back to basics. I blog a few times a week to share my tips, tricks, and of course recipes! I also lift weights twice a week and practice yoga – and frequently share posts about my experiences in fitness!

As Thoreau once said, I am trying to “live deliberately, to live deep and suck out all the marrow out of life; to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die discover that I had not lived.”

Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚
