Hey Y’all! I’m Christy.
I started The Curly Butterfly as a way to help others on their journey to clean eating and green living.
My own journey started with food. After years of struggling with weight issues and IBS, I completed a Whole30 and discovered that I felt so much better when I was eating clean, whole foods. I am still on my weight loss journey and I’m anything but perfect in my nutrition, but I hope I can share some lessons (and recipes) I have learned along the way.
A few years after discovering non-toxic food, I naturally began to make changes in my kitchen, like glass bowls for food storage and using microfiber to clean. You may hear me talk about Frannie quite often. She is my inner child voice and she tends to get me in trouble quite a lot. I have to reign her in because she wants to live in a tiny house, start a farm and be 100% zero waste. Like, today!
Here at The Curly Butterfly, my mission is to help others switch to “Clean Living”, but to be honest, things can get a little chaotic around here. Like most of you, I am a busy mom. I have two children with a rare disease and special needs (read about them more on my other blog). That, along with working 2 businesses from home makes our lives very chaotic. Making small changes will make a difference. I’m not going to judge you if you give donuts to your kids as a reward for having a good day (my son lives and breathes donuts!). I am still on my way and I’m not perfect. I don’t expect anyone else to be either.
Maybe some day we can all live in a community that is #zerowaste, organic gardeners, and singing Kum Ba Yah. But for now, let’s connect and talk about the tips we’ve learned and how we are making small changes in each of our own homes. (Oh, yeah, I speak fluent sarcasm, so bear with me if I roll my eyes a little at Frannie’s rants!)
