Hello, my name is Amy Stafford and I am the originator, author and photographer of “A Healthy Life for Me.” I am so happy you stopped by.
This blog was created with the sole purpose of sharing original recipes, organic gardening tips and exercise and fitness tips to help individuals and families build and sustain healthy, balanced and fulfilling lives. The mother of two athletic boys, my goal was to not only provide healthy meals, but to teach life skills for how to practice and maintain that lifestyle through tasty food and meaningful choices.
A flock of backyard chickens, several beehives and a garden and greenhouse fill my days. The chickens have become a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I love the beautiful organic eggs that they provide and also love to see them free ranging around the garden because of the constant entertainment they provide. Keeping bees has been and adventure, learning how the simplest of insects can provide such an unbelievably important food source. Their spirit is amazing, as they struggle year after year to survive. I also find it extremely rewarding to plant a seed, care for it, grow it and feed the vegetables from the plant to my grateful family.
Through my blog, I share not only my knowledge but years of experience creating and perfecting the food, recipes and tips that I hope will inspire you. I find great joy in knowing that something so simple and meaningful, like making a recipe or planting something in your garden will make you a hero in your home tonight.
