DaNelle is a former nurse, mother of 2 children, and creator of the blog Weed 'em & Reap. DaNelle started to take an interest in real food after suffering from two debilitating chronic diseases. Her plunge into real food improved not only her health and helped her to successfully lose 30 pounds, but also aided in the reversal of her son's severe asthma. On a mission to create a farm of her own, DaNelle forced, or rather 'lovingly persuaded' her husband to purchase a ranch home on an acre of land and transform it into their very own urban farm. DaNelle and her husband raise goats, sheep and chickens. DaNelle blogs at Weed 'em & Reap where she writes about the reversal of disease, weight loss through real food, common food myths, and her funny farm experiences.
