Hello! My name is Ashley Reeves. I am not a professional dietitian, chef, or trainer. I am just a 6 foot tall mom of 3 wild little boys. I now use clean food packed full of nutrients to gain the energy I need to keep up with my children, and have overall health and happiness for myself.
I was very overweight as a teen, and struggled with food addictions and unhealthy habits for years. It wasn't until I was in my early twenties that I found the power in REAL food, and I have loved learning and applying these benefits in my life since.
I love sharing ideas, recipes, and love of cooking with others. I truthfully hope this will be a place for beautiful & delicious food for you and your family to enjoy together.
All recipes are grain free, dairy free, sugar free.
Thank you for your support!
Cleaning out 16,000+ pictures from my iPhone🙈 one 2017 goal is photo control slash organization etc - what are your fav ways to stay on top of photos?! Help🙏🏻! ALSO I have a little over 2 years of photos on my phone and this one is probably my favorite❤ When our boys got to come meet little sister. I was SO high on drugs but I distinctly remember feeling so complete. After working so hard for years to build and grow our family, knowing we finally did it. "Gangs all here!" and I love them all so.
Snowed in Sunday night and watching the red carpet for the #goldenglobes tonight (the best part besides Jimmy Fallon🤗) I made some whole grain spaghetti for dinner tonight and this Garlic Parmesan Cheese Bread😍 full live demo on my @nom channel- ashleysfreshfix😘 #freshfixrecipes
Never been happier ❄️💙 #snowbaby
Making my favorite whole wheat pizza dough for our little Friday family night. We've been using this recipe for 10 years and I am sharing it in a new ebook coming out this month🎉 ALSO my leveling cups & spoons for baking are almost sold out, just a few left in the shop if you want to grab yours! Check out my #levoonslevups hashtag for a demo video😘
Cake Batter Cookie Dip 🎉We made this on New Years Eve with the kids but it's such a yummy dessert dip to bring to parties (or eat while hiding from the kids in your pantry, it's fine) Just mix 1 box funfetti cake mix, with 1 cup vanilla yogurt and 1 small container of cool whip and voila! You can dip animal crackers, graham crackers or fruit too!👌🏻 #freshfixrecipes
Tonight was nothing like this picture 👆🏻 I was cooking dinner for my kids, my husband was gone working late, the older 2 boys were fighting, and as I was stirring the noodles my 3 year old started throwing up I hurried and ran over to him to steer him away from the floor and toward a toilet and I quickly glanced over and saw my baby choking and gagging on a pear piece she hadn't swallowed right so I dashed from one kid throwing up on the floor to the choking baby. While trying to get the pear out and I glance over to see the boiling water spilling all over the stovetop, all the while the older kids are still fighting. I finally get the pear our of her mouth, turn off the stove, clean up the vomit and break up another fight over Pokemon 🙄and continue on with the night cause the show must go on! They're all asleep safe and sound now, and I feel that exhausted but empowering feeling of I GOT THIS. I made it another day! I've said it here before but my best analogy of my experience with parenthood thus far is firefighting. There is almost always a fire, flickering small or raging high and the more kids I have the more fires I have going up. Most days I feel I'm just bouncing from fire to fire trying to extinguish it and usually when one is down another goes up. That's a day in the life for most of us. Some of our fires are children, some are jobs, careers, some are loneliness, depression - we are all just trying to keep the flames at bay while keeping our literal hot mess express still functioning. Just know behind every pretty staged picture you see of a mom and her kids on Instagram I can promise you she's done her fair share of firefighting that day. We all have in our own way. Let's not judge what we think we know about anyone's life, or the fires they fight cause at the end of the day we're all fighting the same fight, survival👊🏻🔥😘

Lunching with my little fam on our last day of Christmas break. We went to the opening of the new @terramiapizza in Draper and it was snowing outside❄️ We enjoyed good food, good gelato (they're doing free desserts all day today fyi🍨) and I just felt SO grateful for a full year and kind people in our life. Tomorrow school starts up again and the chaos of busy family life will kick into gear but I've really loved the break from life, here we go 2017🎉
I'm taking over the @lactationlink Instagram today giving my tips & tricks for nursing your baby, every experience is different and after 3 unsuccessful goes at nursing, with my 4th & final baby I was able to make it work. I'm SO grateful for formula as it literally saved my sanity & fed my first 3 beautiful babies, and I'm also so grateful nursing too on my last when things were busier than ever with 4 kids it forced me to slow down every day. Babies are such a blessing, head over to @lactationlink to hear what helped me breastfeed well & wonderfully this time❤
