Hi I’m Pepper, welcome to Pepper Scraps!

My family and I are sharing pieces of our lives as we make better habits, eat healthy, get moving, & most of all love each other.

You don’t have to go to extremes to become healthy do it one habit, one meal, one walk, one hug at a time.

Let’s work together one piece at a time making better habits, eating healthier, getting moving, and most of all loving our families.

Healthy Mom = Healthy Family


That is my life motto and I hope that it will be yours too. Together we can change our families making them healthier and happier. As mother’s if  we take the time to work on making ourselves healthier our families will become healthier.

I’ve seen this by personal experience. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight. My main focus was to stay up with my two very active preschool boys. But as I saw the results in my health and saw my boys start getting active with me I realized I was changing my life and my boys.

After seeing these amazing changes I started sharing them here on Pepper Scraps. As I got messages from other moms at how I was inspiring them I decided to change Pepper Scraps to become a place to help other moms find a healthier them.

Healthy Family Means More than Eating Healthy

As I moved from working on weight loss to maintaining my weight loss in my own life so has Pepper Scraps changed from being about healthy eating to being about a healthy family.  My boys are now in school and we are learning about balancing our lives. We are working on making more healthy habits, keeping busy, and spending quality time together.
