I truly believe happiness comes in life by being open, honest and completely revealed. I hope you enjoy my post and please feel free to leave a comment with any more questions you may have.

  1. Thanks! It’s great to be redecnizog. Even us step-dads get some love and respect. Good job taking care of your man, though a #11 would have made his week.

  2. I just downloaded your Caveman Feast app after watching the Fed Up documentary and getting a huge wake up call on the bad shit I put in my body. I can’t wait to try all the amazing recipes! And props to you for speaking so candidly about your abuse. As someone who was also sexually abused and bullied in school, it led to a lot of self esteem issues which in turn led to eating disorders. Your story is an inspiration to me! It shows me there is a light at the end of the dark, bumpy tunnel.

  3. Thank you for sharing. I have only been following you for a short amount of time, but have been amazed by all of your recipes and love watching you on facebook live. Congrats to you for not only overcoming all of those obstacles, but rising above!! Much love to you and your family.
