About

Hi. I’m Heather.

I’m a writer of non-fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry. I have an MSc in Ethnobotany, which is a hybrid degree in Anthropology (the study of human culture) and Botany (the study of plants). I have always been fascinated by the endless ways that plants are incorporated into every day life. I also take my job of mother to my son and daughter seriously (while making sure to not be too serious all the time).

I am a seeker of truth and a chaser of light, which must be why I love research, writing and photography. The more I learn and the more I see, the more questions I have and the more I want to explore.

I have explored how today’s modern diet is involved with chronic disease. Now I’m onto exploring the role of chronic stress in disease as well. Which is why I am an advocate for natural health, specifically in helping others to beat endometriosis and adenomyosis naturally. You can find a link to my Facebook Group for this on the right.

Being gluten sensitive (as well as dairy- and soy-sensitive), I’ve also spent the last (almost) two decades perfecting gluten-free and paleo recipes that keep my family nourished and also coming back for more. The recipes I share here are kid- and husband-approved, so I’m sure you’ll like them too, but the actual posting and photographing of them is still a work in a progress, as most of my time is taken up by the current manuscript I’m working on (when not feeding my family). One day, I hope to turn them into a cookbook, but in the meantime, if you find a recipe with a typo, please shoot me an email.

Or if you have questions about anything else or just want to say hi, please email heather AT hkjacobsen DOT com. You can also find me on Twitter under @hkjacobsen
