When it comes to food, you could say I'm striving to be sustainable, more local (yet still global), beyond organic and respectful in my food choices while embracing the cultures and foods from all around this beautiful world. I have degrees in nutritional and exercise sciences and I've found when that passion combines with my love of travel and photography it creates a balance of the culinary, culture and health that drives my love for food blogging.
After living almost 10 years in beautiful central Kentucky, we recently made the cross-country move to a new food paradise - the East Bay in California. I'm also an avid traveler and former ex-pat who lived in southern Brazil from 2007 through 2009. During my time in Brazil, I began freelance writing which eventually led to the publication of my first book, The Everything Guide to Food Remedies. Along with cooking and travel, some of my other favorite things include my husband, and our two pugs Macy Mae and Dixie.
After a rocky relationship with running throughout my life, I finally got hooked in 2010 when I ran my first half marathon. I've run a few more since and I'm now training for my first full marathon in June 2013. I also have a deep appreciation of yoga and strive to improve my practice.
This blog is my creative outlet. It allows me correspond with people from around the world who share my interests and those who challenge my ideals. It is a way for me to bring real foods of the world to you through my travels, cooking, photography and writing.
