Kari & Tyler | About Get Inspired Everyday

About Us:

Hello my name is Kari, the recipe developer and photographer here at Get Inspired Everyday!. My husband Tyler takes care of the technical areas of this website and has been patiently teaching me the in’s and out’s of the complicated computer stuff. We have been learning as we go, and sometimes the going is a little slow.

Tyler is Canadian and I’m American, so you will find an assortment of references to both countries. Over the last 4 years we’ve lived part time in both countries while waiting for Immigration and an assortment of other paperwork to come through. Currently, we are living in Kalispell, Montana but as of a few months ago we were residing in Calgary, Alberta. As you might imagine, by now we call both places home.

We love food and like nothing better than to spend a day in the mountains followed by a homemade Pizza Margherita. As much as we love to hike and travel, one thing remains constant… food (no surprise there). When we are traveling, the first item of of the day is to find the best local coffee shop. Contented with good espresso, we then plot the days’ restaurant adventure before setting off to explore. For us, travel and food are essentially one thing. We travel to eat more good food.

This is a Food, Adventure, and Lifestyle blog.

Food

The Food section chronicles my journey to make recipes that are both healthy and delicious. It doesn’t matter how badly I want to change my eating habits; if it isn’t truly satisfying, I won’t stick with it. Here you will find the recipes that I develop as well as a few inspirations from others. The credit will be noted in these recipes and often a link to their site will be listed as well.

I have categorized the recipes into individual dietary needs so that you can find what you’re looking for. We don’t have any particular diet that we adhere to, we’re just learning to include more fruits and vegetables into our everyday eating. Every once in a while we make something really indulgent, but for the most part we have been avoiding processed foods because we feel better when we eat better.

About the Food Categories:

In the Paleo section, some of the recipes listed have some cheese in them or a small amount of dairy. This is not strictly Paleo but many people eating Paleo include a small amount of raw dairy and or some cheese, preferably an aged cheese like Parmesan, Pecorino Romano, or a goat’s milk cheese.

In the Raw category, there are a few ingredients used particularly in the desserts that are not raw, such as maple syrup and cocoa powder. Feel free to substitute carob powder and your raw sweetener of choice if desired.

Finally, if you are cooking for someone that is gluten free, you’re going to want to make sure your ingredients are truly gluten free.  Some people are sensitive to anything processed in a plant that isn’t a gluten free processing plant.

We try to seek out the best quality ingredients, because better ingredients = a better final product.

Adventure

In this section, you will find a little bit of everything, hiking in Glacier and Banff National Parks, restaurant endeavors, and traveling. We love to spend time in the mountains and have just gotten into scrambling. Up until now we’ve spent a lot of time in the Canadian Rockies and Banff National Park. This year we’re planning more adventures in Glacier National Park since we’re currently living in Montana.

Lifestyle

This section contains recipes to make your own projects and products. My skin is sensitive to most any cleaning or body care products so I’m learning to make them with natural ingredients. Sprinkled in, you will find tutorials for home projects as well as fashion. I use the word fashion lightly here; not by any means do I mean high fashion, just things that I like. I’m currently interested in DIY projects for updating the clothes that I already have or projects that can be made for just a few dollars.

      That depends on a number of factors, but what usually happens is the oils start to go rancid which you can usually smell. How long a homemade lip balm will keep also depends on the average temperature, the hotter the weather the quicker the oils will start to go rancid. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

    Just wanted to let you know that I am trying your Oatmeal Cleanse/Scrub recipe. My husband and I just bought a Komo,(online), mill to make our own flour for bread, make our own pasta, or any grains you can think of, and grind our own oats. We go to a store that offers only Organic non GMO grains from local farms.

    When I ground the Oat groats, there is a bit of fine oatmeal that comes out of the mill that I do not use to cook. So I saved it and thought about using it for a mask. I went online and your site came up! I make Oatmeal frequently during the week.

    So I really do love my mill. Eating healthy and more delicious fresh grains, than even buying ready made flour in a store. And now I can even get healthier skin with my mill and your site.

    Thanks!

      I pin a lot from Pinterest and I make a lot of the things I find, but I rarely leave comments. I haven’t tried any of your recipes yet, but I have to tell you that I couldn’t stop reading your posts as every recipe sounded so good and I kept looking at more and more of them and pinning more and more of them and can’t wait to try them. Your recipes sound delicious and healthy and are easy to understand. Your photography is stunning and makes me want to try everything I’ve seen! I don’t follow anyone, but if I figure out how to, I’m going to follow you on pinterest.
