We are Michelle & Makenna ~ a mother/daughter duo who, after Makenna was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis shortly after high school in 2013, took her health into our own hands. We chose this path after months of medical procedures and prescription meds that were NOT helping. In the end, we were successful using real food and lotsa love with a passion to make sure the healing process was enjoyable and tasty. On January 1, 2014 we began this journey for Makenna. Our blog & IG were born in early 2015 so we could share our recipes and passion for what we’ve learned and continue to learn along the way. Here we are several years into the journey, and we’re overwhelmed with the sense of community we’ve felt. We love the genuine friendships we’ve found, hearing all the “warm fuzzy” food stories from followers that are enjoying our recipes and our overall family vibe. We couldn’t ever have imagined her feeling so horrible would lead us to where we are now. We are honored to be here and to be involved in your journey as well.
