Hi. I’m Heather.
I write 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.
