I'm a young woman living in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Over my life I've dealt with various minor chronic health issues like allergies and IBS, which have become progressively worse over time. In a quest for holistic health and wellness I am on a road to fully embrace a crunchy lifestyle and all that entails. From just eating real food (and trying to decipher whatever that means) to natural fertility (because I may be single now, but I definitely want kids when the right guy comes along), reducing toxins (and trying to decipher what that means too) and trying to live more sustainably and simply.

To that end I have come up with a "Crunchy To-Do List" to help speed me on my way. These ideas are culled from other crunchy bloggers of various sorts. My goal is to try each task out for myself and report back on how they worked (or failed to work) for me. In between knocking off items on my "Crunchy To-Do List" I will be sharing recipes, book reviews and my stumbles along the way.

Join me on my journey as I learn How To Be Crunchy!
