The kitchen is my safe place where I feel I can really express myself without judgment. Growing up in the kitchen with my Nana & my mom has developed with me over my lifetime & I would love to some day implement a similar tradition into my home. Three generations preparing quality food together, coming together & working together. I've learned that coming together & expressing ourselves with food & loved ones is the most neutral way to incorporate more healthy habits into our every day lives & that is what this book is meant for. Spill on the pages, wrinkle them, take notes, add ingredients but most of all bring these recipes into the heart of your homes & make your own memories throughout the process of creating every single recipe.

 

I was always a hungry bunny. When I was just two years old my mom used to pull a chair up to the counter & put me in charge of preparing string beans. I would stand on the chair & snap the ends off for her with the biggest smile on my face. It was a simple task, but the beginning of something much bigger. I have loved food with all of my heart since I was a little girl & cooking has been part of me since a very young age. Some of my most cherished memories stem from the times I have spent in the kitchen with my Nana & my mom. Throughout my adolescence I had a hormonal imbalance. Embarrassing abnormal hair growth, elevated testosterone levels & a general hormonal imbalance left me feeling moody, bloated & suffering from eczema & other various allergies. Adolescence is hard enough & I was a mess. I cured myself with a plant based diet & lifestyle & today my blood work is normal. 

My passion for helping others soon evolved into finding a way to spread health & positivity in the least intimidating way. Through helping myself I gained the ability to help others. I've been an empathetic person for as long as I can remember & that was amplified when I changed my lifestyle & started taking care of myself. I have become more aware of how my decisions directly affect the world & others around me. I've always given more of myself then I should but I have found a new way to harness that into something positive & that is why I began this journey. I thrive on the world around me & making people happy & that's all I need. From the experience gained participating in the health food community I have noticed that terms like “plant based” & “vegan” have become controversial & emotionally charged topics for many people. My goal is to neutralize these stigmas & have plant based become synonymous with simply living a healthy life.
