Where do I begin? I’m Tara a single mom living in Staten Island, New York. I am infinitely proud of my 11-year-old twins. They are both on the autism spectrum and I guess you could say they have inspired me to be a better human being. To be more. Do more. Their diagnosis seemed daunting at the time I received it but in retrospect I have found the blessing that being faced with this challenge is. The universe, God, whatever you may believe in sent me these 2 amazing people. The three of us have learned a great deal over the last few years and as a result have grown leaps and bounds!
Everyone has a story and we are no different. In the end,I decided to start life over with a shift in expectations. Clean slate. So, for the last 8 years we have been eating super clean. No gluten. No casein. We did it before it was cool–before most people even knew what gluten was!Then, I went through a divorce and started to run, lift and do yoga. I’m still going. One thing led to another and today I am a new woman. I am an athlete (at least I like to think so). I suddenly became the person people go to with diet and nutrition questions. Life is far from simple or perfect, but I have truly loved every minute of starting over. The possibilities are endless and I’m excited to see what the next chapter will bring. Hope you come along for the ride. It may be bumpy but I promise it won’t be boring.
