The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Crunchy, Chewy: Granola

I've been craving snacking granola this week and it dawned on me as I perused foodzie (for the hundredth time) and considered other fruit/nut combinations at my mixed nuts, that I could make my own. So I did!

4 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup coconut oil, warmed to melting
1/2 cup honey
2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1.5 cups dried cherries, unsweetened
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1.5 cups cashews
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1.5 cups banana chips
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl combine the oats, coconut, almonds, flax seeds and chia seeds. Pour in melted coconut oil and honey, mix until all the dry ingredients are evenly coated.

Spread onto a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until the granola is nicely toasted and brown. Turn the granola every 10 minutes or so to ensure even cooking.

When the granola is mostly cool, add in the banana chips, cherries, and cashews. Once the batch has cooled completely add in the chocolate chips and store in an airtight container.

This recipe provides a nice granola base to which you can add whatever yummies you're in the mood for.



  1. That's so funny because just earlier today I was looking up recipes to make my own protein bars. I'll have to add this one to my list too...looks delicious!
