Get to Know Me

DSCN8510 Hi, My name is Alissa and I am super excited to be able to share my journey of health with you! I am passionate about raw food and enjoying life as much and as long as possible. I want everyone to experience the best quality of life possible. I don’t have all the answers and I am still learning slowly, but I hope you can can learn slowly with me. I do not blog for a living, I am a teacher and I currently teach preschool. I have a classroom of 3, 4, and 5 year olds and they challenge my mental and physical energy and I love all of them very much. I enjoy teaching, but I have found that if I am not in the best health I can possibly be in, then I cannot give my students all they need and deserve. My health journey started to lose weight and I still go back and forth with being obsessed about losing more weight and learning to appreciate the journey and ultimately desire the health that this journey brings.



I live in beautiful Colorado and love getting outside as much as I possibly can, if only to enjoy the sunshine during recess. I have two obnoxious birds that make my life interesting and who love to eat my food. The grey one is Taz and the little blue thing is Oscar. when we eat Oscar will run

around our feet like a dog begging and say “Come here” basically letting you know he wants some too.


Birthday 2I am also married to the love of my life, Salvador He is so kind to me and has been kind of pulled on this journey with me against his will. But he eats all my food and tells me if it is good or not and he has recently become a vegetarian! Both of us have lost quite a bit of weight on this journey. Salvador love to run, ride his bike, and take pictures. All the good pictures on the blog will have been taken by him and the bad one were taken by me.

So please journey with me as I learn and grow!

  1. Very nice blog and cute pics, especially of you and hubby!! 😉
