Hey y’all! Thanks so much for stopping by Healthy Little Peach, a food, health and lifestyle blog. My name is Ashley McCrary, but I go by “Mac” and I am the CEO/Owner here at HLP. I am a mom to 2 little beauties, Eloise (5) and Eleanor (1) and a wife to an amazing husband, Joel. We are based out of Missouri, but have really Southern accents. Both my husband and I grew up close to TN, so we have always had a twang and now we have passed it to our girls.
I found the Whole30 program back in 2014 when I hit rock bottom and it totally transformed my life, both physically and mentally. Not only did I fight Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), but additionally, I lost 80 pounds through 16 successful rounds along with changing my lifestyle to Paleo. I am now living my best life through food freedom and I am so excited to encourage and support others who may be fighting the same battles.
Reflecting and figuring out that I had a problem was the first step. I had to change my lifestyle before I could pick up my broken pieces. Thorough this transition, I am finding that I am becoming a little more whole every single day. Through my lifestyle change, my relationship with food improved in addition to allowing me to become a better wife, mother and woman. Little by little I can look in the mirror and say with confidence that I truly love the strong and beautiful woman that is staring back. This is words I never thought I would be able to say, but I am here, do it!
If you are discouraged and hopeless, please don’t give up on yourself, you can achieve total health and wellness through little changes. I remember battling constant depression, eating disorders, and self hate on a daily basis. Even though I still have my demons, I have grown so much and want to be a light for others who are in the darkness. I HEAR YOU, I SEE YOU! Make the first step and make a small change today and then do the same tomorrow. Those small changed will in time become big changes that will begin to shape the new you!
What is Healthy Little Peach all about? I am here to share healthy recipes that are Whole30, Keto, Paleo, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free along with sharing some of my family favorites that are full fat and southern.
My goal with my website is to show you that you can live a balanced and healthy life without having to restrict and binge in order to find yourself. Additionally, I want to share “real life” in a world full of fake. It is simply okay if you are not okay. It is okay if you had a bad day. It is a okay if you yelled at your kids. It is simply okay. You are human, and this is real life and I want to encourage, support and love you, because hey….you are AWESOME!
