Get Inspired Everyday!

Hi, my name is Kari and my husbands name is Tyler. We’re so happy you’ve found your way to Get Inspired Everyday! We hope you’ll find some inspiration with healthy recipes, outdoor travel, and clean skin care DIY recipes.

Tyler is Canadian born and I’ve lived in Montana my whole life. We now both reside in Montana, even though the immigration process when we were first married took years before we could settle down together.

During that time, we had to live on opposite sides of the border, and so we ended up spending lots of time traveling through the Rocky Mountains from Jasper, Alberta down through Montana.

Whatever adventure we might be in the middle of, food has always been the constant for us. Whether we spent the day traveling, or just playing catchup around the house, the day is going to end with some good food for sure!

You’ll find all sorts of easy gluten free real food recipes here on the blog. Most of my recipes are also Paleo friendly, with lots of Whole30 inspiration as well. We focus on easy dinners, but you’ll find plenty of snacks, healthy treats, side dishes, and breakfast recipes too. We also have a large section of meal prep recipes that help us stay on track with healthy veggie filled eating, and we hope this resource will help you as well.

On the travel section you’ll find lots of outdoor travel, especially in National Parks. We live minutes from Glacier National Park, and so we hope to inspire you to get out and explore as well. Even when we travel overseas, you’ll still find us in the mountains. So we hope you’ll enjoy the stunning views as well as handy tips for planning your next trip! Finally, the newest thing you’ll find here are some backcountry and camp cooking tips.

Over in the lifestyle part of the blog, you’ll find mainly DIY recipes for clean skin care. There’s everything from easy sugar scrubs, face masks, homemade body wash, lip balms, to tutorials for how to do an at home facial like you’d find in a spa. You’ll also find some how-to’s for meal prepping from seasonal inspiration, to how to meal prep snacks. These go hand in hand with the meal prepping recipes in the food section. 

Farmer's Market Abundance

Our Food Philosophy…

We often get asked what kind of ‘diet’ we follow? And the answer is we focus on as many veggies as possible with real food. If you had to put a label on it, we eat mostly Paleo, which we’ve taken to calling Paleo-ish!

One of the great things about the Paleo diet is the focus on real food with no processed ingredients. However we’re both beyond fond of cheese which isn’t in the Paleo lineup, and so we just call our diet ‘veggie focused’.

It can be hard to ‘know how to eat’ in this day and age with so much confusion. But one thing we started noticing as a theme is any expert you hear talking about different diets all agree on 1 thing… and you guessed it – we should all be eating more veggies!

We try to support our local farmers with their amazing produce for a few reasons. One reason is that local produce tastes so much better, and it then becomes easy to eat more veggies. Then there are the ‘local’ and ‘sustainability’ aspects that we love. And finally, when you’re acquainted with the farmer you’re buying from, you know more about exactly how your food was grown!

Most days we’re making these recipes for a regular ‘Tuesday night dinner’, but these recipes also come with us on our weekend adventures and travels as well.

Next in line is my Grilled Summer Veggie Pesto Pasta Salad on a mountain top with some cute ‘wildlife’ trying to steal some. And finally there’s my Paleo Honey Mustard Trail Mix being enjoyed as a snack while we sat on the shores of the Lake of Hanging Glaciers. So I hope you’ll find some new favorite recipes for all aspects of you life as well!

  1. Kari,
    I love everything I have tried. Was wondering if you have or if you’re going to publish a cookbook with the same title as your blog. Would love to have it ALL @my fingertips to read at my leisure. Thanks for all you guys do to help us live healthier.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment Vicki, it really made my day! 🙂 I know what you mean about having a book you can actually hold, and I would love to publish a cookbook someday, (no plans for a hardback yet). I am working on an e-book for healthy lunches but I have lots to learn about formatting and such! I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes, and hopefully there will be a book(s) in the future!

  2. Hey Kari: We just got back from a Pacific Ocean trip with some wild caught Chinook Salmon and Halibut. Got any new fun and interesting recipes for either of these???

    Reply
    • Sounds like an amazing trip! I usually grill my salmon, (or any fish for that matter) over medium heat – I put thin slices of butter over the surface so that it melts in as it grills, and serve it with sea salt and lemon wedges. Chopped fresh rosemary makes a really good addition to grilled salmon as well. Both salmon and halibut are really good with a red curry sauce over the top and served with rice (https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/thai-curry-stuffed-sweet-potatoes/) – the recipe will give you the sauce and you can choose your veggies. If you have any leftover cooked fish, you can add it at the end of the cooking time to a pasta like my Summertime Penne with Fresh Corn, Tomatoes, and Basil – https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/summertime-penne-with-fresh-corn-tomatoes-and-basil/. I like to use grilled salmon in my fish taco lettuce wraps https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/fish-taco-lettuce-wraps-with-mango-salsa/ and it’s really good in these noodle bowls https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/creamy-avocado-rice-noodle-bowls-with-bok-choy/ and finally (since this is getting long) I sometimes serve it alongside Caesar Salad https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/creamy-basil-chicken-caesar-salad/. I gave you the link for the creamy basil version since it’s summer, but I also have a traditional Caesar and a Chipotle version on the website as well. Let me know what you end up making, I’m sure you’ll have lots of ideas too! 🙂

  3. Hi Kari
    I am new to your website, I found it because I was looking to make my own aloe vera lotion. I love your site, the recipes and DYI suggestion and of course your blog. My life long dream and this may sound funny but I have always since I was a teenager to visit Kalispell. It is now on the top of my 2015 vacation spots.

  6. Wow I just came across your site– So excited to try so many of the recipes I don’t know where to start! Thanks for posting these wonderful edible creations of yours!!

  7. I just discovered your site. A friend posted a couple of your recipes.. They look wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing. I recently ‘retired’ [at least that’s the general perception] — and I am looking forward to having the time to do more experimenting with food. I really want to try your skillet cake. Great idea! I’m from the west coast and have lived from Arizona to Washington..

    • I’m so glad you found us, and I think both the chocolate or the apple skillet cake are great place to start! As much as we love Montana, we’d like to live around the west coast area as well for a time, so many amazing places to see!

  8. Hi Kari! I just found your blog and love it! I am a fitness and food blogger in Wyoming. I’m originally from Montana and I still have family up in Kalispell. Great to meet you!

  9. Hello Kari! Just wanted to say that I love your site and have tried multiple recipes! Everything has been delicious and fits perfectly into my “food philosophy” 🙂 I am originally from up around Glacier Park, and I love seeing all the pictures of the US/ Canadian Rockies… makes me a little home sick. I lived very close to the Canadian line and spent lost of time in Lethbridge and Calgary. My husband even teases me that I have a Canadian accent:) Thanks again and keep up the great posts and recipes!!

    • We love hiking in Glacier and Banff, we also spend a lot of time in Calgary as well, but I haven’t been to Lethbridge yet. I too get teased about my ‘Canadian Accent’ but only by Americans because I can’t really cut it in Canada just yet 🙂
