Meet Cassy

In 2016, I published my complete health journey, 28-day food and fitness plan, and over 175 recipes in my first book, Fed and Fit.

Over the years, I’ve continued to base my eating in a real-food plan, and have continued to change my diet based on what is right for my body. I stand firm in the belief that the pursuit of health is not about limiting the foods on your plate, but more about filling your plate with as many foods as possible (that work for your body).

In early 2019, I gave birth to my daughter, Graysen, and became even more motivated to refine my approach to health as I balanced being a new mom. I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my daughter, pour into my relationships, grow my business, etc. – and spending HOURS in the kitchen each week was taking away from those pursuits. I thought that there has GOT to be a better way. Getting a healthy, homemade dinner on the table shouldn’t be this hard. There’s got to be a way we can serve up dinner that is picky eater-friendly, that doesn’t break the budget, and that doesn’t leave me feeling exhausted from the effort. So, I went to work to find a solution to making getting a healthy dinner on the table each night easier.

The result was Cook Once, Eat All Week, which started as a 4-week series on the site and, because of the RAVE reviews by thousands of readers, made its debut in print on April 23, 2019 as an expanded 6-months-worth of meal prep guidance.

I’m incredibly proud of what Fed & Fit has become. It’s now an online destination for folks craving easy recipes, approachable tips for non-toxic living, fitness for beginner levels, healthy mindset crafting, and overall no-rules-wellness. With my incredibly sharp, vigilant, and motivated team of contributors, we publish weekly problem-solving articles that are aimed at empowering (not burdening) you as you pursue your own version of healthy living.

When I’m not working, you can find me with my husband Austin, with our 1 year-old daughter Graysen Joy, and our Great Pyrenees (aka. 1st born) Gus in our home in the Texas Hill Country near San Antonio.
