Don’t mess with a mama bear on a mission.
👶🏼💙👶🏼
I’m Des, a mama of two blondie boys, a wife to a badass man, born and raised in beautiful CA, managing a business and the health of my dudes and me (when I can find time 😬😂). I’m on this mission to find truth in all the chaos and messiness society today is handing us. I sometimes feel like we’re in a rat race trying to decipher what is THE BEST choice for our children and our family. But in reality we’re so lost from what is most important. I’m constantly filtering through ALL the things regarding health and wellness, safety and efficacy, informed consent and what it looks like to have true health freedom.
🙋🏻‍♀️
Please say hey and join me, I love the support, community, conversation and questions from all ya’ll who are seeking the same goals or desire of a better healthier future for our all our babies. Love you all, it makes the world a prettier place.

Being aware of the #ingredients in our foods can be life changing for mostly . . . EVERYBODY especially those battling with any sort of #ailments, #diagnoses, or #disability. 
It’s so important today to know the ingredients in the food, beverages and pharmaceuticals we consume, what we apply on our bodies, breathe, inject and whatever else. When we start caring about this stuff a whole new freedom opens up really...
I’ve never heard anyone say “wow eating more fruits & vegetables, lowering processed junk, cleaning out the toxins in my home/body and getting outside in nature more was so sucky I’ll never want to try that again.” .
No, we have this innate drive that pushes us to know better and do better.
.
It’s always purposeful and fulfilling. We are forever changing and growing more conscious as a society. Kuddos 🙌🏼
.
Never underestimate our power to change these markets. What we consume they make more of. Don’t buy it and stop the demand. Speak up about what seems funky, call organizations and ask questions about ingredients. Ask your healthcare provider as many questions as you feel deemed necessary, it’s your body. Care about yourself, you deserve it! We all do, really🙌🏼 @secretfoodfilm @drmarkhyman

This kid demanded celery juice after his afternoon nap, which is unusual for him. Whys it got to be dark at 5pm 😑 Normally we do our celery first thing in the morning. But he was so adamant he swooped up the celery off the counter, clutched it like I was going to dinosaur chomp it all in one bite and take it from him and then tried throwing it into the juicer. All while I was trying to document his persistency and dedication to #celeryjuice #onlyorganic #localfarms #dontjuiceroundup @medicalmedium @farmfreshtoyou

No words resound more with me then these....THIS SHOULD BE EVERYONES LIFE MISSION:
Love like I'm not scared

This past weekend we attended our first marriage retreat. 
5 years ago on this very same weekend Matt asked me to marry him!!!💍 We had NO IDEA of this when we scheduled this #weekendtoremember 2 months ago. It just happened to fall on the exact same weekend 💕 and we realized that today. We also had to recalculate how long we’ve been together because well kids probably 😂

In March we will celebrate 8 years together and in February our wedding anniversary of 3 years ❣️👰🏼🤵🏼 We were shocked to be able to RENEW our vows today at the end of the event. Emotional!!! We learned SOOO many amazing valuable life lessons and I WISH we had gone to this event 8 years ago, 5 years ago, heck 3 years ago, but LIFE HAS BEEN A WILD RIDE FOR US.
4 houses & 3 moves 
2 beautiful baby boys 💙💙
1 dog, love you Kahlua
1 perfect God daughter 
Hundreds of loving family and friends all around, support all over the US!

And we learned this weekend that it’s never too late to make adjustments and changes and it’s always too early to quit.

Has our relationship been near perfect, hell no. But we’ve stood the test of time together. 
Good marriages don’t just happen, it takes serious work.

We have recommitted ourselves to each other and legit have a marriage manual to follow now!

Happy Engagement weekend baby! This was a real blessing for us, our marriage and our children 🙌🏼 we’ve started a legacy and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds with you by my side 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 #renewedvows #familylifewtr #familylifewtr2018 #lajolla #marriageretreat #dateyourspouse #marriageishard #ittakeswork #learningispower

In a mother’s womb were two babies. The first baby asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The second baby replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery.  Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.” “Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery.  What would that life be?” “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here.  Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths.” The doubting baby laughed. “This is absurd!  Walking is impossible.  And eat with our mouths?  Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. Life after delivery is to be excluded.  The umbilical cord is too short.” The second baby held his ground. “I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here.” The first baby replied, “No one has ever come back from there.  Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery it is nothing but darkness and anxiety and it takes us nowhere.” “Well, I don’t know,” said the twin, “but certainly we will see mother and she will take care of us.” “Mother?” The first baby guffawed. “You believe in mother?  Where is she now?” The second baby calmly and patiently tried to explain. “She is all around us.  It is in her that we live. Without her there would not be this world.” “Ha. I don’t see her, so it’s only logical that she doesn’t exist.” To which the other replied, “Sometimes when you’re in silence you can hear her, you can perceive her.  I believe there is a reality after delivery and we are here to prepare ourselves for that reality when it comes….” ***our babies are not twins, but love this parable 🙌🏼

Almost birthday boy.
2️⃣
This year I was EXHAUSTED from life that I literally didn’t have time to plan a birthday party for my baby...thinking about who to invite, where to have the party, do I serve a full on meal or just snacks (oh and how do I do this now with my children’s food sensitivities? Offer everyone the same expensive #glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree food I have to serve the boys or serve different food and then have to tell my kids sorry you can’t eat that stuff at your party?) then do I mail invitations or just do FB invites, theme and decorations... goodness...anxiety producing. Then the thought of not throwing a Pinterest party made me feel like a shitty mom.
Wth! 🤷🏻‍♀️
Why??? 🤷🏻‍♀️ then we had a super important training for our business get booked right ON the only day of the month we were even available to try to do a party. Okay God. I got it. I’m not a shitty mom I’m a damn good one and no Pinterest perfect party is going to make me a better one.
This wasn’t supposed to be this way. All stressful. It’s a celebration of LIFE! So peace out stress, no formal party and now we get to celebrate with everyone separately on different occasions and we will truly enjoy the people we’re celebrating with. This is the second celebration so far and he is loving it🙌🏼💙
Also how the hell do you mamas take these beautiful pictures of your kids? Send me your ways!!! It’s impossible for us 😂

I’ve been super quiet on social media for a couple months because. . . .holy shizzzzlllee life has been SOOO BUSY
🙃😴
who is with me???!!! 🤪
AND ALSO because there are WAY TOO MANY OPINIONS on here.
For real.
🤯
I love the ability to be so connected with people from all over the world it’s a beautiful thing and I LOVE ya’ll; but at the same time it did a disservice to me for a moment. I started to question who I was and what I stood for. And because of that I also started to wonder if social media really needed yet another opinion from someone like me?
🧐
But when I reflect back on what us as a family has gone through in just the past 3 months alone. . . . I decided that yes my ‘opinions’. . . .they are needed here; that someone, somewhere can relate and connect and maybe, just maybe, our story can help someone else🙏🏼AND that what I post isn’t just a bunch of ‘opinions’. It’s real. Fucking. Life. Excuse. My. Language. 😬
I’m in the trenches. I’m being so stretched. God. Motherhood. Wife life. Friends + family. Adulting. Social media. Ugh sometimes. It’s too much.
😵
So breaks + rests are needed. Don’t ever doubt yourself. Don’t let other people sway you. It’s okay to take a step back, slow down, and center your self again with whom ever it is that you believe in.
🙏🏼
Also; what I post about is current. Real time. Actual facts. Not some made up BS or opinions. I promise that what I’m trying to bring forth and post about is pure and true to my heart; something I feel the world needs to hear. So with that please take everything I say with a grain of salt and never EVER question who you are because of what I say. Don’t ever hesitate to stand up for who you are, what you know and what has been placed in your heart😘💕😍💕#imback #beyoutiful #standup #ihaveavoice #parentaladvisory #wemadethem #letmedecide #mthfr #mthfrawareness #vaccines #vaccineinjury #vaccineinjury #eczema #eczemaawareness #foodallergies #dairyfree #glutenfree #realfoodlover #justeatrealfood #vaccineawareness #speakup #gutissues #truth #dontletthemfoolyou

This salad is a combination of 3 nights of leftovers! Serious resourcefulness 🤣
🥗
What we ate this week: veggie curry no meat (it was so delish we ate it 3 nights in a row😋) over brown rice/noddles that I bulk made on Sunday.
🐟
Salmon + artichokes
🥪
Sandwiches + side salad
🍝
So I took the left over noddles, salmon & salad and made a bomb salad for Fri-yay
🥗

Happy FALL! 🍂 Reminiscing back to when I was preggo with baby Crew. We didn’t know his name was going to be Crew...my husband picked that on his birth-day. This is back in October 2016. I was preparing for a VBAC with him. Mentally, physically and emotionally, consistently preparing, every single day. Little did I know how much I needed that training and preparation for what we’d endure with our children’s health following suit.
.
In 2 months exactly my 2nd baby is going to be 2. I can’t.
.
@raisingdarlingdragons remember when @strong_girl_mom painted our bumps??? Can you believe they’re turning two?!

My updates on here have been far and few between lately because as some of you know we’ve picked up a new gig. Our Snap-on Franchisee has been operating for a month now 🙌🏼 I’m working part time side by side with my man in our truck en route. While also working the backend business full time, managing our household and keeping up with our children’s dietary restrictions, plus trying to share our story to help encourage others!
.
With what has been the MOST stressful, anxiety producing, chaotic and messy time in our lives has brought the most HEALING. When the odds have been against us we have persevered with holistic & natural ways of taking care of our bodies. Thank you to the Lord for our strength through all of this, seriously, because A LOT of times Ive cried in desperation wanting to just have it easier, I didn’t ask for these allergies and I’d love to be able to just pick up dinner at the drive thru on those chaotic days. But I can’t because my children will suffer. And miraculously day by day the endurance to keep up with these demands was delivered.
.
We’ve transitioned to a mostly Whole Foods diet, cutting out gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, shitty oil and so much more. (I’ll always add this caveat, yes my hubs and I have days we indulge out on special occasions, but I refuse to bring those products into my cabinet and fridge). Plus most recently I’ve minimized the amount of meat we consume. I never thought I’d be VEGAN, but I’m seriously considering it after this huge friggin win!!!!!!! Listen up!
.
Crew is healing amazingly from his eczema. Before and after pictures are coming soon I promise.
PLUS! Get this: my husband has dealt with high blood pressure all his life (it’s hereditary right 🤔🙄, don’t believe that ish, no matter what your ailments are you can heal, your body does not attack itself it wants to thrive and rejuvenate) well we took him off his medication over a year ago and have been trying to manage it naturally. It’s been like 145/95 most times its checked. Today it was 118/80. Are you kidding me???? This man has been so stressed with the weight of the world on his shoulders...and his blood pressure has dropped??!! [🔽comments]

Feeling it today after indulging yesterday for my birthday. Now that I’m healthier then I’ve ever been I feel 10x worse even if I only indulge for one day 😳🤔 “Does anyone find that the healthier you eat on a consistent basis the worse you feel when you consume something ‘bad or off’???” COMMENT AND TELL ME IM NOT ALONE 😳 -@plantyou

ONE WHOLE MONTH OF CELERY JUICE and 3 months of a whole foods lifestyle and we’re finally starting to see major IMPROVEMENT in his eczema🙏🏼
🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱
Okay we missed a couple days BUT supplemented with cucumber juice. So it’s been an entire month of juicing fresh celery and or cucumber EVERY SINGLE MORNING on an empty stomach for this little dude.

He literally wakes up and demands CELERY JUICE. If you’ve never heard a one year old scream for celery juice you’re missing out. It’s pretty adorable 😍

Crew is 22 months old. I started him the first two days with 8oz of celery + apple juice (not from the store...this is fresh/raw ORGANIC or farmers market celery & apples blended and strained to only get the juice). Then moved to straight celery juice...I slowly increased it over the first week. He now drinks anywhere from 10oz to 16oz depending on his needs. Some mornings he asks for more and others he’s done at 10oz. I let him and his body tell me what it needs.

I started this process with my @vitamix. I was blending and straining through a milk bag every morning for three weeks. Time consuming? Yup. Worth it? Absolutely. But then I did decide to upgrade to a @breville juicer, we’re on a budget, but this juicer was reasonably priced and it’s so AMAZING! I’m so stoked on this new kitchen appliance 😍

We’ve chosen to heal naturally and holistically from the inside out to treat his bloody horrific eczema. Check out @medicalmedium post on CELERY 101 to understand why we’re doing this. I’ll also be posting more details soon about the other supplements we’ve added to his diet with the help and guidance of our naturopathic DR @drelanaroumell we’re working with on healing gut issues + food allergies + his eczema. Thank God for the progress and for our amazing village of helpers 🙌🏼🙏🏼🌱

ONE WHOLE MONTH OF CELERY JUICE and 3 months of a whole foods lifestyle and we’re finally starting to see major IMPROVEMENT in his eczema🙏🏼 🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱 Okay we missed a couple days BUT supplemented with cucumber juice. So it’s been an entire month of juicing fresh celery and or cucumber EVERY SINGLE MORNING on an empty stomach for this little dude. He literally wakes up and demands CELERY JUICE. If you’ve never heard a one year old scream for celery juice you’re missing out. It’s pretty adorable 😍 Crew is 22 months old. I started him the first two days with 8oz of celery + apple juice (not from the store...this is fresh/raw ORGANIC or farmers market celery & apples blended and strained to only get the juice). Then moved to straight celery juice...I slowly increased it over the first week. He now drinks anywhere from 10oz to 16oz depending on his needs. Some mornings he asks for more and others he’s done at 10oz. I let him and his body tell me what it needs. I started this process with my @vitamix.

They have dozens of doctors appointments a month, several hospital visits a year, and therapy is their norm. @christam0812 manages migraines, homework, bath, and bedtime all ALONE. She is a single mom shouldering her children's battle with NF and her own. Yes, all three have the same incurable - tumor growing - pain inducing - dangerous disease.

Christa, you are a gentle warrior. Giving, fighting, battling, supporting, covering, and caring for your lovely children. When breathing is labored, we pray Christ is your breath. When light grows dark, we pray hope lifts them open. When fear threatens, we pray faith strengthens you.

Remember, God sings a love song into your soul. Rest your head close to His heart and find courage. He carries you as you carry them. Today, we pray and repost. Please donate a dime or a few dollars.

DAIRY FREE/VEGAN/WHOLE FOODS/REAL/FAT FREE cheesy sauce 🧀🧀🧀
Seriously I’m so OBSESSED with this cheese sauce. I can’t stop thinking about all the things I can use it with...mac-n-cheese, nachos with my @sietefoods tortilla chips, cheesy broccoli, a Taco Bell creation at home😉(my weakness...why?! No idea) loaded potatoes and so much more 🤤 The consistency is sooo much so just like a real cheese dip. 🥔🥔🥔
Did you know this about potato’s?
“Potatoes are high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation, and the viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract, and reverse Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, or peptic ulcers. In addition to being antiviral, they’re antifungal and antibacterial, with nutritional cofactors and coenzymes plus bioactive compounds to keep you healthy and assist you with stress. Further, potatoes are brain food that helps keep you grounded and centered.”
