I love food! I like eating it, making it, and experimenting with new recipes…often without measuring (though now I measure as I improvise, so I can share!)
Alas, I do not have a star metabolism. I’ve grown to think of this as a blessing in disguise, because my natural chemistry has led me to always seek out healthy recipes that taste good too.
I’m always looking for:
- balanced snacks/meals (meaning healthy carbs, healthy fats, and protein)
- foods rich in fiber
- I try to completely avoid refined flour and sugar. Actually, I try to avoid sugar period, unless it’s in the form of dark chocolate.
I am also pretty active (I recently completed my certification to be a Personal Trainer!), so I am often looking for recipes that are high enough in protein.
Above everything, my goal is to eat things that taste good! The more I learn, it is also becoming increasingly important to me to be a more mindful eater. I am going to school to become a Nutritionist this fall, so the science behind my creations will gradually become more concrete.
Lastly, I love the challenge of a recipe makeover, so if you’ve got a guilty pleasure that you’d like to enjoy guilt-free, give me a shout!
