Welcome to the Healthy Michigan Mama!
I’m Jill. I’m wife to the most supportive husband Darren, mom to 2 kids who are 7 and 9 and step mom to an 11 year old. I’m also an award winning full time nail artist of 25 years, photographer and freelance writer. I was born and raised in Northern California and moved to Southeastern Michigan in 2005.
My newest passion is definitely the healthier part of my life. Two years ago I embarked on a weight loss journey using Weight Watchers and lost 100 pounds. After a while I realized that I was just eating “points” and no longer eating for nutrition. I was plateauing and I knew something needed to change.
When we were introduced to the Paleo lifestyle it changed the way we saw food. It was scary, but life changing. Challenging at times, but exciting! We’re more passionate about what we put in our bodies and the mouths of our children than we ever have been which means we are picky about the source o that food. We love supporting local Michigan farmers and butchers. We have never felt better and had more energy than now that we are on a clean diet and exercising regularly.
My goal is to share about my journey to a healthier lifestyle and share any nuggets of wisdom along the way. I look forward to spending it with you!
