I started slowly changing my diet while in college, first cutting out soft drinks and greasy fast food in order to feel better physically. I soon became passionate about healthy cooking. In 2009, my sister was diagnosed with cancer. I helped and encouraged her as she made radical changes to her diet and lifestyle and beat cancer. Two years later, my mother was diagnosed with a different cancer. A year after that, it was my father. I encouraged my parents to alter their own diets, and I kept changing mine. Unfortunately, I said goodbye to my mother in 2013, but my father is doing well now. Out of the whole ordeal, I developed a heart to encourage and pray for other cancer patients. Through the recipes I share, I hope to inspire healthier diets and promote a lifestyle of wellness.
I’ve always had a passion for fitness and healthy living, but these causes have grown even dearer to my heart since my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer three years ago. I’ve seen firsthand what cancer can do to individuals, relationships and families, and it is my hope that these experiences can be a source of encouragement to others fighting the same battles.
I am a wife, freelance writer and stay-at-home mom to two children and one very spoiled dog. In my limited free time, I enjoy running, curling up with a good book and hot cup of tea, and hanging out with my big sister and fellow buttseriously blogger, Rachel Morrell.
I am a stay at home mom of two who is passionate about healthy food, writing and my family (although not in that order). My desire for a healthier lifestyle developed a few years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I ate a great deal of fast food and sweets. If it wasn’t good for me, I more than likely had it for lunch or dinner. After gaining more than 60 pounds during that pregnancy, I decided to make a lifestyle change. I did not want to travel down the same road of diabetes, heart disease and cancer that so many of my beloved family members endured. That passion led to a love of experimenting in the kitchen and coming up with healthier versions of my favorite dishes. I hope my recipes show others that eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or boring!
Hi! My name is Amy and welcome to the Butt Seriously blog! From its birth, I’ve been working with the Stop Colon Cancer Now campaign, saving lives by increasing colon cancer screenings. I believe in the Stop Colon Cancer Now cause so much that I wanted to step from behind the scenes and write a blog that would spread colon cancer awareness even further by pairing humor and the latest colon cancer news and information, both which are equally dedicated to promoting healthy living and colon cancer prevention.
I’m a wife and stay-at-home mom to two little girls with another on the way. What keeps me sane most days is a strong cup of coffee (or three) and time to write on my blog, “Growing in His Glory”, where I encourage women to “grow” in their roles as wives, mothers and daughters of God. When I’m not writing or taking care of my family, I enjoy trying out new recipes, reading a good book, and discovering ways to make homemaking and mothering easier and more enjoyable.
Since 2009, I have been creating locally sourced, seasonally inspired menus as the sous chef at Marché Artisan Foods in Nashville, Tennessee. With a passion for clean, modern food that celebrates the ingredients local farmers and food artisans are growing and creating, I will be sharing great recipes that aren’t only delicious, but colon healthy too.
I have always had a passion for food and cooking my entire life. This passion led me to pursue my culinary degree at L’Academie de Cuisine in the Washington D.C. area. Even after graduating, the search for new inspirations and the perfect bite continues! I am looking forward to sharing all of my finds and curiosities with you in a delicious and healthy way.
We are a husband and wife duo that is a force to be reckoned with. For the most part we are a normal family (depending on what you call normal). We both work full-time, and we have wonderful kids that we love dearly. The one thing that makes us a little different is that we are at war with colon cancer. In May 2012 Chris was diagnosed with stage 3B colon. Though Chris is the one that has colon cancer, the disease affects the entire family. We are happy to be a part of the Butt Seriously blog team, and we hope to help prevent colon cancer and to inspire other families who are also fighting the battle against colon cancer!
Ever since I was a girl, the pen and paper have been good friends of mine. As a wife, mother of four, travel agent and freelance writer for Stop Colon Cancer Now, I enjoy journaling, letter-writing and blogging as a way to capture everyday moments of life. I like making healthy living fun by cooking from scratch, taking family bike rides and training for half marathons. Maybe I’ll even run a full one someday! Since cancer has affected two of my family members in the past year, I have a passion for increased cancer awareness, screening and early detection.
I’m a part-time graphic artist and part-time church youth director, but a full-time wife, mom and grandmother. My passion is working with young people and I use my creative side to help them in their spiritual walk. I love to paint, babysit my grandson and go on mission trips. I am a breast cancer survivor with a family history of colon cancer, so cancer prevention is a big part of my life. I often call on my personal experience for speaking engagements to other survivors and to grief support groups.
