Getting started with real food and natural living // #realfood #wellness


Welcome to Delicious Obsessions, my friends! SO happy to have you here! I  hope that the information provided on this site is helpful for you and your family.

My name is Jessica and I am a Certified Nutritional Therapist and Mind Body Nutrition Coach (in training – graduating Oct. 2017), Body Image Movement Global Ambassador, and Health at Every Size supporter. I am a jeans and t-shirt, outdoor loving mountain girl hailing from the beautiful state of Colorado (there is not a fancy bone in my body). I seriously love it here and try to get outside and off the computer any chance I get. I live in the city now, but I grew up in the mountains playing in the dirt, riding horses, chasing chickens, and running free.

I am also a wellness educator, health freedom advocate, avid researcher, book junkie, student, wife, former chef, real foodie, dog lover, and aspiring yogi. I love being outside, whether it’s walking, hiking, or just reading a book in the park. In my free time, I enjoy painting, listening to music, playing with my dogs, and watching movies on Netflix.

I founded this site in 2009 and since then we have written over 1,400 articles and recipes! As you can tell, there is a lot of information shared on this site so before you start poking around, I wanted to offer you some guidance and maybe help you find the information you need fast.

If you are interested in learning more about me, my journey to health, and my mission, you can find that info here.

Looking For Real Food Recipes?

That’s great! I have tons (hundreds and hundreds!). Most of my recipes are going to be gluten and grain free, save for a few of my earlier recipes. Quite a few are dairy-free and there are also a number that will be AIP (autoimmune protocol) friendly from the times when I have gone through the AIP. Food is the #1 way we can create wellness, so my goal is to provide real food recipes that are easy to make and delicious.

Looking For Information on Coconut Oil?

Yay! It’s one of my favorite topics and I have an entire section of the site dedicated to the delicious coconutty goodness. Posts include health benefits, uses, recipes, and DIY tutorials for coconut oil skin care products. While I do use healthy oils other than coconut, it still remains one of my favorite oils not only for cooking and baking but for skin and body care as well.

Looking for Information on Health, Wellness, and Nutrition?

I’ve got you covered! I have a wide range of health & wellness articles, including many posts about my own personal health journey. Topics include food politics, nutrition, natural and herbal remedies, stress management, thyroid, gut, and adrenal health, and much more. All information shared is geared towards helping you live a happy, healthy, vibrant life!

Looking for Information on How to Live a More Natural, Sustainable Life?

Great! I would love to help you! I have an entire section of my site dedicated to articles to help you learn how to become more self-sufficient and live a healthy, non-toxic life. Posts include gardening, DIY tutorials, herbal remedies, recommended resources, and much more! I’m all about taking the power for our health and lifestyle back from big corporations and returning to simpler ideas and sustainable, eco-friendly products.

Looking for Suggestions on Clean/Safe Products and Services?

I’d love to help! Because it’s hard to filter through all of the different brands and products on the current real food and natural living market, I have an entire section filled with my own personal recommendations of products I approve of and brands I support. Every product or service that I recommend on my site has been tested and vetted by me and are products or services that I personally use in my own home. I take product recommendations seriously and only want to provide you with the best of the best.
