I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. My love for cooking came from watching my grandma in the kitchen, she never used a recipe but for some reason her food was always so good. After I graduated High School I really got interested into eating whole, real foods. Something I love about living in the South (Now Midwest) is the fresh foods always around. Everyone grows a garden and I love being able to reap from the Harvest. After some college I really got into Nutrition and how it relates to our health so I decided to go to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and have never looked back! Other than being a lover of all things food, I am a follower of Jesus, Pastor’s wife, and dance teacher. I love every single moment of my life! I hope you all can learn or at least find encouragement from this blog!
