About Healthy Simplicity


We are the Schonhaar family, and we enjoy learning about healthy living. We don’t just study though, we strive to practice what we learn. We want to invite you to come along on our journey of healthy living and learn with us. We hope that we can be a blessing to you along the way.

We have eight children so our home is often noisy, messy and full of fun. With eight children we’ve learned that eating healthy is actually cheaper than otherwise. We make most of our food from scratch, do a little gardening and a whole lot of preserving.

We’ve also learned that we cannot get all of our nutritional needs from the food we eat so we supplement with vitamins and minerals believing that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When we are sick we strive to cure the cause not treat the symptom with as natural a means as possible.

So come on in, don’t mind the noise and see if we can help you on your journey to good health.




  1. Hi Jen. You have a beautiful family. Would you and your husband be interested in participating in my series on Bullet Proofing Your Marriage? The interview takes about an hour or so, depending upon the length of your answers. I would want you both in the interview. Following the interview, I write your story and send it to you for any modifications that might be needed. Then it gets published on the blog and ultimately in a book I am writing. Let me know. Thanks

  2. Hi Jen Check out my blog post today where you are featured for Thriftiness!
