Just a girl who should have been born many centuries earlier. I enjoy all the old school housewife things like cooking from scratch, sewing, baking and gardening. My husband and I try to live simply and be content with what we have. We focus on local eating and living sustainably while having a successful home based business. We try to consume less and do without because we know that consuming even "greenly" isn't the best option. We are currently focusing on detoxing our home and our personal care routines, it's been quite a ride so far!
I blog about gardening and local living over at www.ChiotsRun.com. My husband and I own a business doing website design and videography (weddings and commercial). Check us out at www.2ndMileProductions.com. We try to run our lives and businesses in a sustainable manner.
I was born and grew up in Colombia, South America and enjoyed living in a tropical setting for so many years. I now live in NE Ohio and enjoy the seasons.
I also love to take photos of what's going on my life, check out my Flickr photostream: Chiot's Run
This year we celebrated our Second Annual Real Food Challenge. Challenging ourselves and our readers to eat fewer processed foods and focus on eating Real Food for the entire month of March.
While the month of March is now over, we still plan to continue the Real Food Challenge by keeping in touch with our readers every few weeks. We want to support our community with advice, recipes, and even giveaways when possible so that all of us can live and eat healthier.
Whether you eat mostly fast food or already make just about everything at home, there's something for everyone in this challenge. We can all make a change whether small or large.
Join the challenge, check back often and give us your feedback - we're excited to hear how you're all doing in your quest to Eat REAL Food!
