Welcome to the “The Crunchy Muffin“! I’m glad you stopped by. My name is Teresa. I am a Catholic, crunchy mama trying to the best of my ability to raise 11 kiddo’s (with my hubby’s help of course). We have grown our family through adoption; both international and domestic. We have adopted through the foster system, privately and through the Crow tribe. We have spent the last 3.7 years healing our family of various health problems through nutrition. We went from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to Gluten free/dairy free. After further research we found the Gut and Psychology diet (GAPS). Currently our family is on various stages of the GAPS diet. We have found tremendous healing by changing the food we eat.By profession I am a Registered Nurse. I was in the health care field for 17 years. I had no idea food played such an integral part in the health of our bodies. Using diet as the foundation of our healing, we have also used supplements (folate) homeopathy, liver cleanse, and essential oils to facilitate our healing.
