Hello! My name is Autumn and I’m so glad you are here! Let’s start out by giving you some insight into who I am and by sharing why I created A House A Happy Home. 🙂
I am a stay at home mom of three amazing, young children and a wife to an incredible husband. I truly love to cook healthy meals for my family and I love being hospitable to the guests and loved ones that come into my home. My desire is that everyone who walks into my home would feel loved and welcomed, and that they would be able to see Christ through the hospitality that I show them. My way of showing this care for both my family and my guests is to prepare my home for them and to provide them with healthy, delicious home-cooked meals.
I started this blog so I could help other moms:
- perfect their meal planning process
- learn to “eat clean” so they can make healthy meals for their families
- make hospitality and hosting guests something to look forward to
How do I do these things? I do this by:
- sharing some really amazing, tried-and-true (mostly vegetarian), clean food recipes
- providing meal planning and meal prep tips, strategies, and schedules
- sharing educational posts on how to “eat clean”
- providing hospitality tips and guidance to make hosting guests a breeze
I love to research new clean food, plant-based recipes and transform them into meals that my family and friends will deeply enjoy. Then once the recipe tastes perfect, I share it with all of you! My hope is that I can come alongside you to help you learn what it means to “eat clean” for the health and nourishment of you and your family, and to provide you with all the tools you need to prepare a delicious, homemade meal for your family and/or guests. My desire is to help educate and encourage you to eat healthier, “cleaner” foods, without eliminating your favorite food groups.
What has been your experience with meal planning?
Have you been trying to eat healthier and provide healthier meals for your family but you just don’t know how? Or you don’t know where to get started? Are you frustrated with meal planning because the meal plans you’ve tried are too complicated, time consuming, or simply just don’t taste good? This is what I want to change for you and your family.
All of my recipes are made with REAL, whole food ingredients (no processed foods, preservatives, hydrogenated oils [i.e. margarine], weird ingredients, etc.) so there is nothing that needs to be changed to maintain a clean diet when using my recipes. If you want to get started with meal planning but are not quite ready to plan your own week of meals, I would love to help you by giving you a FREE gift of my “One Week Meal Plan”! What could be a better way to launch your meal planning strategy than for someone to provide your first week’s meal plan for you?! It’s the perfect way to get your feet wet.
All of the recipes in my One Week Meal Plan have tons of flavor and fit “clean eating” preferences, AND to make your week of meal planning even easier this meal plan comes with a complete printable grocery list! I hope this meal plan gets you excited about starting a clean eating meal plan that you can practice for years to come.
I have developed lots of resources for you including The 10 Best Meal Planning Tips for Busy Families to provide you with time-saving, expert tips to developing a successful meal planning strategy.
I also have shared my own meal planning strategy with you in my Meal Planning 101 post that has been incredibly successful for me with my family of five.
I have been perfecting my meal planning strategies, and have been researching and practicing eating clean for years. I hope I can walk alongside you to help you with your meal planning and healthy-eating challenges to transform the way your family sits down for a meal.
So, how did I get here?
Well, my husband and I met in California and were married in 2010 in a beautiful walnut grove. After another year in the hustle and bustle of California, we decided we wanted to plant ourselves in a new place and start a family. So we packed up our little 700 square foot apartment and headed to the beautiful state of Colorado!
Now, 8 years later we are living in the city of our dreams, remodeling the home we love, raising three absolutely amazing children, and are pastoring a wonderful church!
In this blog, you will find delicious healthy, plant-based recipes, meal planning tips and schedules, hospitality how-to’s, and some encouraging tips on living life a little fuller each day. This is the good life. Welcome. 🙂
