Real Food Crash Course

My best tips and tools for stocking, planning, shopping, and preparing real food. Plus, a bonus: a step-by-step guide to making the switch to real food and ditching the ultra-processed food.


I'm Kristin. I'm so glad you're here...

Back in 2013, when my babies were 3 and 1, I started the blog Live Simply with a passion to share everything I was learning about real food and more natural living.

Having grown up in the '80s and '90s (yep, all the processed food and tie-dye shirts), I didn't know anything about how to eat healthy, but I had a desire to learn.

Through the blog, podcast, and online resources (like this guide), I share how to live out a nourished life in a simplified, no-nonsense, progress-over-perfection way (from sourcing real food to navigating picky eating to ditching the toxins in your home to getting healthy food on the table and in the lunchbox).

I believe nourishing yourself and your family shouldn't be complicated. Healthy food should bring a family together, and should not be the source of stress, a drained bank account, or power struggles.

I'm excited for you to join me on this journey toward a simpler, nourished life.
