“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” -Thomas Edison
Hi, I'm Jamie, curator of Mellow Mondays. This journey to health found me in 2012 when my sister was diagnosed with Crohns disease. As a family we decided to seek out alternative thoughts, ideas and practices to help her not only achieve remission, but ultimately wellness and fullness of health. We met our naturopathic doctor and now dear friend who encouraged us in our path to find healing through food. We gave up every part of the standard American diet with her and watched her levels rise and inflammation decrease through living foods and beneficial supplements.
Now several years later, you'll usually find me with a topknot in some work out clothes or in the kitchen whipping up clean treats with my son while my baby tuggs at my ankles, because that’s this busy season of having young ones I’m currently in. I’m married to my best friend, Aaron. He’s the real MVP who helps me get time to explore all the fun wellness stuff that I am so crazy about. I’m just super thankful he’s ours.
I am a nurse by trade and some days I am not sure how that happened since I have always been into all things natural. With a strong desire to eat clean and take care of this one body I’ve been given is where Mellow Mondays was born. This space is an open book into our slow journey of finding what works for us and sharing the process.
We spend most days outdoors with our little dude, Ren and our littlest babe, Fynn in tow. On the other days we're busy CrossFitting, homeschooling, collecting rocks and playing in the dirt.
We find ourselves seeking the slow life in a small town in North Carolina.
I’m so glad you’re here! Join the journey and stay as long as you’d like.
