Welcome to the orchard…

I love a little bit of everything from Food to Fitness, Health to DIY
I try to focus on real food and honestly it’s really a journey.
Food is a journey, there are difficult paths to follow and easy roads ahead, but if we keep at it, the end results can be amazing.
Currently, I’m training for a half marathon, but that is but one step in my grand scheme of things.
I want to be active, I want to be the 90 year old grandma skiing down the hill someday, out enjoying life until the very end.
It’s all connected, DIY (making your own products), healing your bodies through exercise and nutrition,
you just have to discover your path, but come along for the ride while I tell you about mine.

I am married with two beautiful children ages 7 & 5. I am also a fulltime photographer and have been interested in food, since, well always! I began to take a registered Holistic Nutrition course, which I thought, hey why not start a blog about it and real food. On my blog you will find a little of everything. With loving food, I try not to restrict anything from my diet, but look at making foods healthier with using ingredients as close to nature as possible and as far from processed as I can. I hope you enjoy The Skinny Pear! Make sure to follow me on G+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103839136473255928108/?rel=authortag

    I would dry EVERY FRUIT I can find. My hubby & I are on disability & could never afford a dehydrator. We LIVE fruit but sometimes it’s expensive or terrible when out of season. I stock up in season a freeze those you can freeze (grapes, strawberries etc.). I would dehydrate in season to use all year !!
