Hi, my name is Ari! I'm a wife and mama to a beautiful family. We are a lot a bit dramatic and live life without any dull moments. I love to make healthy and wholesome meals in the kitchen, with a little bit of chocolate cake on the side. My passion is to help others live a healthy lifestyle in all aspects. Whether it's a kale salad, great cardio, waffles on Sunday, or enjoying the crazy moments of wife and motherhood.

IMG_6654Everyone knows it can be tricky to get our kids to get all the vegetables they need for their growing bodies. I’ve become quite good at hiding certain veggies into dishes that way they have no idea they are getting a serving full of ‘disgusting vegetables’ :)! This pasta sauce is incredibly delicious! It’s on the sweeter side which I think really helps appeal to kids and their taste buds! Pair it with salty garlic bread and you have a winner!
