About Whole Diligence

I am a mother with a teaching background, Masters in Education that stays home and takes care  of her three wonderful children; ages 8, 6, and 4. I cook, clean, take care of my family and home happening, write a blog, and homeschool.

Check out my blog: WholeDiligence.com

My blog shares my passions: food, cooking, family, kids, Christ

Food: Share all the fascinating information I accumulate about food and health. I love to eat REAL FOOD, local food, food that is good for your body. Our family has removed processed food, sugar, and processed grains from our diet in an effort to eat REAL FOOD. We have also increased the amount of fruits and veggies we use in cooking and look for quality in the food we purchase.

Cooking: I love to cook. I grew up with a father who was and is an outstanding cook. I sat and watched him cook and many times got to act as his sous-chef as he prepared dinner- chopping, grating, stirring. Menial tasks but none the less it gave me a passion for cooking. I will share recipes, tricks of cooking delicious food in a realistic manner- considering the time you have as a mom and budget.

Sharing the passions of a mother.
