By | Diet | No Comments

Jackfruit is one of our family’s favorite fruits! It’s tropical, sweet, and delicious! I swear Juicy Fruit bubblegum go their taste from mimicking this fruit.

Native to Asia, the Jackfruit is readily recognizable for its spiky exterior. Many children in Thailand grow up with two or three jackfruit trees in their yard.

Here’s how we pick a ripe jackfruit, cut it open a jackfruit, and eat it. It’s jackfruit time!

High Energy Parenting MAJOR Update

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

Nearly 2 months have passed since we became a family of five, and a lot has transpired over the course of those 7 weeks. Some things have changed as well. I’m back in college on a pre-med path, aiming for Osteopathic Med School, the YouTube channel delivery has switched up a bit, with a cool new addition, and I’ve opened up a CRAZY amount of FREE video and course material for you to access.

This is going to be a busy, busy few years, and I look forward to sharing them with you and growing in health, energy, and happiness. There is literally NO WAY I could be doing all that I am doing with home education, college, 2 jobs, and a brand new baby, if I didn’t have the knowledge of how to create and sustain a super-high energy healthy lifestyle.

Rather than me trying to eloquently capture such a precious moment, we’d like to invite you to watch along as baby Taj is birthed into the world. Meagan had a natural delivery at home, in a birthing pool.
