Hello! Welcome to my blog. I’m so glad you stopped by.

I’m Mattie…the Girl Gone Crunchy. I’m a 4th generation Californian, Northwest transplant, and health nut extraordinaire. A sugar addict from my first hit, a maple doughnut at age 2, I’ve long struggled with eating well. My health took a particularly negative turn when I was a young teen. I had kidney stones, suffered through severe bouts of anxiety and depression, and was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Through research, hard work, and faith in Jesus Christ, I was slowly but surely able to turn my life around. It’s now my passion to help others going through similar issues.

This blog is meant to be a resource and community for people on the journey to becoming their healthiest selves: physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I have divided this site into three sections: body, mind, and soul, because I understand that being truly healthy involves so much more than our physical bodies.

What kind of content can you expect to find on this blog? BODY: Delicious Healthy Recipes, Natural Product Reviews, Nutrition Tips. MIND: Tips for Managing Stress, Creative Expression, How to Develop a Healthy Relationship with Food. SOUL: Devotionals, Book Reviews, Bible Summaries.

Thank you for reading! I am so excited to have you join this community of beautiful people.

Love, Mattie


So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21 NLT
