Food

Here are my favorite recipes with tips to save you time, money and customize to meet your particular way of eating. Most of my recipes offer suggestions for vegetarian, vegan, low fat, low carb, glutten free and dairy free options. My overall food philosophy is to keep it fresh, know what you are eating, expose your kids to a wide variety of healthy options and get them in the kitchen with you.

I love working hard to make my home beautiful. I love it even more when I don't have to pay a professional to get professional looking results. I believe you should build, fix, remodel or re-purpose versus replace. We live in a disposable society that is impacting our planet, it's time we look at alternative ways to accomplish things like home renovation.

Green Living

I am passionate about living a more sustainable existence. This was not always the case for me, but hey, I am TRYING. Which is kind of the whole point of Flawless Chaos - create interest and momentum around green living. I blog about things like gardening, composting and rain collection. It's incredibly rewarding when you see your weekly amount of trash diminish into a fraction of it's former self or when you add your own home grown kale to your morning smoothie.

About me

About me

Hello and welcome to Flawless Chaos! I'm Heidi and I created Flawless Chaos to promote the general idea of making more with less or mindful living. When I turned 40, I started to feel an overwhelming need to simplify my life and focus on what's really important. For me, that meant a change from being a mass consumer to a mass conserver... As a mother, raising two daughters in typical suburbia USA, I struggle with the excess and wastefulness that appears to have become the norm. Am I an expert on this topic?... well no, not yet. But I hope you will join me on my journey; whether it's attempting to compost, saving a piece of furniture, or eating more plant based foods. My passions include cooking, yoga, art, DIY projects, gardening, and travel. I hope you will find this content useful and maybe even try something new. I love the yogi idea that small consistent changes over time matter most. Think what we could do as a global community if we all tried something new like meatless Mondays, composting, or riding your bike instead of driving. Together, this would be huge...let's all be the change.
