Marilyn Moll has a huge heart, not just for helping her customers and readers cook and eat healthier, but she also has a true Christian heart of compassion for others. You don't have to read many of her blog posts or listen to many of her phone seminars before you know that about her. I'm personally thankful to Marilyn for helping my own blog along – many of my readers originally found their way here through links on her site.
Marilyn and her husband, Duane, began a home business years ago called, “Urban Homemaker“. The About page at their site says, The Urban Homemaker is a family run business dedicated to teaching and promoting “old fashioned skills for contemporary people”. Sadly, Duane passed away suddenly and unexpectedly just after their most recent phone seminar, on April 14th. I know Marilyn will continue to reach out and teach others with their home business just as effectively as she and Duane always have. (As you're reading this, please say a prayer for Marilyn and her family as their hearts heal.)
Chances are you probably already know her, but in case you don't, I'm thankful she's agreed to do a guest interview so I can introduce you! (By the way, Marilyn actually sent me this back in March, but I'm just now finally getting it posted.)
The Moll Family
1. What is your #1 motivation for eating/feeding your family healthier meals?
My #1 motivation for eating healthier is that I think it is inexpensive health insurance and more enjoyable. Also, I want to be a good steward of my body and health.
2. What started you on your path to better nutrition?
Customers started asking me all kinds of questions about things I didn't know about, plus I started hearing a lot of testimonials about improved health.
3. What is your biggest struggle in eating/feeding your family healthier meals?
4. What is your favorite healthy recipe?
5. What is your best kitchen/nutrition tip?
Take it one step at a time, it is a process. Do not try to change everything overnight. Recognize there is conflicting health information out there. Buy food according to your budget not because it is organic. Many good choices exist that are not organic.
6. What did you have for dinner last night?
Last night we had meatloaf from grass fed beef, garlic mashed potatoes with kefir and butter, coleslaw with homemade dressing, and steamed broccoli with butter. Butter is needed to absorb nutrients.
