When I first started this blog, I thought it would be a great way to share my healthy recipes and tips and chronicle my adventures in cooking healthy meals that my husband would enjoy. Just as a quick aside – ALL of the recipes on this blog are “husband approved” – so even though they’re healthy, “normal” people like them too! But over the past year I’ve felt more of a pull to make my blog more personal – I’ve met so many cool people because of my blog – I wanted to share a little more with everyone! So think of this as more of a lifestyle blog or a food journal with a focus on health.
So about me 🙂 Other than being a “picky eater,” who am I? I am…
A wife and California girl – I have an amazing, supportive husband and we live in the San Francisco Bay Area (where I grew up!). The picture below is of the two of us in Porto, Portugal – a beautiful city that actually has a San Francisco vibe to it!
I’m a home chef with no formal training, but I LOVE food. This was one of the first dishes I made – healthy veggie enchiladas. I was excited when they were done 🙂
I also love wine 🙂
I’m a traveler, explorer, and an adventurer. I love going to places I’ve never been before, hiking, and all sorts of outdoorsy activities. Below are a pictures from a few of our travels!
Above is the view at the top of Iguazu Falls. Isn’t it gorgeous? Needless to say, I was really excited to be there…
Other beautiful hikes we’ve been on – Cinque Terre in Italy…
And Chianti in Tuscany. Doesn’t that path look like something out of a mystical land?
And here’s the adventure side of me – hang gliding in Rio… one of the greatest experiences and the biggest adrenaline rush ever!
And holding a python in the heart of the Amazon. Yes, it was slimy and heavy and sort of choking me, but it was a super cool experience!
I’m a dancer, and I love all forms of artistic expression. (This is us dancing at our wedding – one of the funnest times of my life)
And I am of course, a foodie and a blogger. I love connecting with fellow foodies or people who are interested in learning more about the world of healthy living and flavorful eating. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments or feedback. I’d love to hear from you!
