Meet Trina

I grew up in a family of 9 that celebrated good food. Every meal was an opportunity to bring the most flavor and beauty possible to the table and make our taste buds rejoice. My hobby in my teens was to see if I could create a better pizza, pasta, or pastry than what I’d tasted in a restaurant using whole foods from our family farm.

The first year of my motherhood, I faced an interesting culinary challenge: I suddenly had to give up grains. And sugar. Could healthy food still taste good?

I had to get creative if I was still going to enjoy food. By the time I was able to transition to eating grains again, I’d discovered that food can be good for you–and taste good, too!

As I continued to learn about feeding myself and my family well, I realized that making flavor the focus was the key to getting my husband and kids to join me, and that great flavor came from fresh, whole foods, not over-processed substitutes.

That’s why my recipes and approach to eating healthy is different. Eating well isn’t about what you have to give up–it’s about what you get to add in! I believe the best way to nourish our families is to start with great taste and satisfying meals, and avoid stress (and mutiny!) by making slow, steady changes over time.

I’m married to Jeremy and we homeschool our 4 children (soon to be 5) while running our businesses from home, so life can be hectic! Because of the season of life I’m in, much of my advice centers on efficiency and small steps that can help you make progress without huge investments of time or money.

We eat a diet mostly based  mostly off the science and research from the Weston A. Price Foundation, which focuses on quality meats, bone broths, good fats, cultured foods, and traditional grain preparation. One of our favorite family treats is ice cream churned from raw cow’s milk with homemade chocolate sauce on top!
