Lately I’ve been inspired to create a RECIPES section on my site. I love to personally get creative in the kitchen (and as you can see here, so does my toddler!) and I often have people ask me what I’m eating because it “looks good and healthy”.

Also since I’m a Holistic Nutritional Psychologist (i.e, Food, Body and Health Psychologist) and am currently studying for my certification to become a Nutritional Therapist (that is, understanding how our lifestyle, environment and of course, food impacts our genes, cells, and DNA to optimize health and minimize chances of disease and health symptoms), this inspired me more to include a recipe section to spread my learnings and inspiration.

These recipes will be educational in what they provide for health benefits too! I’m all about being proactive to optimize our health!

As well, since I’m a busy mom and professional, I’m all about convenient quick and healthy meals! Most of my recipes take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to create. Many are single portion, but you can easily multiply the recipes to create more servings.

I usually take 1 day a week to prep ahead of time, meaning I batch cook: protein (chicken, lean ground turkey) and starch (e.g., quinoa, brown rice). I rely on both frozen vegetables, as well as fresh veggies. As you’ll see, I LOVE oven roasted veggies – I also cook these in big batches too, as they will last awhile in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy the recipes as much as I enjoy creating, eating and sharing them! 😉

Happy Healthy and Mindful Eating!

I’ll be slowly working on building the page overtime, so be sure to check back often!
