My name is Cara Price.


Welcome to my blog - The Nourished Body & Soul!  I’m a wife, mom, interior designer & a self-trained chef who believes food should be healthy & taste good.  I believe the best thing we can do for ourselves is to nourish healthy bodies & souls.  I love to share my recipes for healthy food & share insights God gives me through His grace. Life is an ongoing process that requires work but the finish is worth the fight. 

my health journey

I became very sick in October of 2008.  I went on a 3 year journey to get well and went through a myriad of doctors, testing and various diet changes, all to no avail.  

In October of 2011, I found an Integrative Medicine Doctor, who very quickly realized my body was full of candida and that I was allergic to milk, eggs & gluten and was also suffering from thyroid disease and adrenal fatigue.  Within just days of changing my diet, I felt much better and 6 months into it, I was totally well.  I also discovered I could enjoy duck eggs as a part of my regular diet.  The genetic make up of duck eggs is different from the protein found in chicken eggs & doesn't affect my intestinal system.

The exclusion of milk & eggs from my daily eating led me on a search for recipes and I kept coming across things labeled as Paleo.  I didn't jump into it all at once but after about a year of eating mostly Paleo I realized it was the lifestyle I wanted.  I knew the change it had made in my body and knew I never wanted to go back to feeling sick.  I believe God worked that sickness for my good, to get me on a healthy path of living.

my faith

I am a Jesus follower.  First & foremost, His love has saved me for eternity & through Him I am redeemed.  He has promised & given me an abundant life, in which I experience grace daily for my shortcomings.  I am not perfect, but God is & His love fills in all my failures.  I have been asked how I can follow a Paleo lifestyle & still be a Christian, to which I can confidently respond that the two are complimentary.  Though Paleo is known as the “caveman’s diet”, it is truly just made up of whole foods created by the great Creator.  I am confident there were people in the Bible who lived in caves anyway.  

My Family

I am so blessed to be a wife.  My man walks in integrity & loves God.  He pours the abundance of grace he receives from the Father back out on me continually.  We have been married for over 20 years & it is only getting better as we walk this journey.  I am also blessed to have 2 great kids.  A son & a daughter who add an abundance of joy, stress, laughter & tears to my life.  They keep me on my toes & I wouldn’t trade being their mom for anything.  I feel sure that motherhood is the hardest thing I have ever done.
