Hi, I’m Alison!

I’m a biology teacher from Massachusetts, and I’m inviting you along as I overhaul my life in favor of a more natural lifestyle approach in homemaking, beauty, and (of course) food. Using my science education background, I’ll give you the very simplest and most relevant explanations for my choices.

I decided becoming unburdened was right for me when, after a car accident, I was alerted to the idea of whole body wellness. Suddenly, the ingredients in every seemingly innocuous facial lotion, kitchen cleaner, chicken breast, and pre-packaged meal were too much to ignore. I needed to simplify, big time.

I’m a full time teacher. I’m also in graduate school, and I’m planning a wedding (my own, thank you very much!). Needless to say, I’m a very busy chick, and so I’ll only share advice if I think it’s realistic and easy to follow.

Please reach out with any questions or comments! I look forward to reading your responses.

Wishing you success in becoming unburdened!
