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!
This is me at 33👆🏻it's my Birthday🤓 I've been thinking a lot today about the most prevalent life lessons I learned at 32 and here's what I got:
First up, the day you get dressed and try to take a picture of yourself not in pajamas the wind will literally try to knock you over reiterating you are indeed, a hot mess and shouldn't try to portray anything different😂
This is not the season of my life to quit Diet Coke, I see you 2018🍻
I'm willing to give up a lot of luxuries in life to pay a house cleaner, because who needs cable when you have clean toilets you didn't have to scrub?😇
I've embraced being "so basic" anything else for me is just too forced.
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less was the best book I've read this year, because saying no to all the little stuff means saying yes to all the big MUCH more important stuff ❤️
My arch nemesis is laundry. Like for reals - I will NEVER be caught up😫
As hard as some days can be I'm so blessed. I feel loved every day. Loved from my patient and supportive husband who lets me chase my dreams, love from my wild and protective little boys who never let me sit still and love from a daughter I truly never thought I'd have who pals around with me & smiles like she's been here all along. I'm SO grateful to God for a life I love and pray every day I can use my time and resources to help others as well. Some days I feel like I can accomplish little bits of that hope here but mostly I hope you all know how wonderful you are in my life, I'm lucky to have you 😘❤️ You can shop this look 👉🏻http://liketk.it/2pLj3 @liketoknow.it #liketkit
Making cookies with 4 small children is NOT for the faint of heart 💆🏼 but we survived! You can see how the cookies turned out in my instastories 🙈 I'm not much of a baker but the kids had fun! You can shop my favorite baking supplies pictured here 👉🏻 http://liketk.it/2pKGO @liketoknow.it #liketkit

If you know my Greyson you know this pose isn't staged!👆🏻😂 I've been rounding up some of my fav Christmas gift ideas to share and while I think everyone is a @chatbooks fan already -- I wanted to share one of our favorite ways we use them! Not only are all our Instagrams delivered to us in cute little books but I also love taking pics of my kids art drawings and we get those printed as well. The kids feel so special when their books show up in the mail, it encourages them to draw more (yay a distraction from screens🎉) and get to 60 pages (that's how many are in the book!) AND it keeps alllllll the art work saved nicely and not littered all over my house 😳 we all win with @chatbooks - tonight is the LAST NIGHT to save 20% with code ASHLEY , it's the perfect gift for your kids, photo books for parents etc. Happy Holidays❤️ #freshfixgiftguide
