Welcome to my new website!
I’m not exactly sure when food and nutrition became my passion, but it is rooted in me now. I wasn’t always this “food secure”, it took years of practice. In college I experimented in the kitchen which usually resulted in a disaster… mostly a big mess and burnt food. I learned then that for me recipes are hard to follow and started creating my own.
I finally mastered a carrot soup which I wooed my first husband with. The guy I shouldn’t have wasted my cooking talents on, although I continued to cook for him for the next decade! Always tense… my stomach in knots, I wish I understood the principles of food as medicine so that I could have nourished myself. I learned the hard way, but now I understand the healing properties of good quality food can even soothe the memories of a bad relationship.
So, now when visiting a client’s home, immediately I am comfortable in their kitchen because I know we will create something special together to soothe and nourish their concerns.
Every day we are bombarded with nutrition and health messages and a seemingly endless array of concerns about lifestyle and diet. For many, food and nutrition has become an overwhelming chore. We are stressed and confused when it comes to food choices, food preparation and meal time- good foods, bad foods, low fat, no carbs, and the dreaded weight loose issue. No wonder food preparation is no longer fun.
Eating and growing good quality food is an essential ingredient in life. Food connects us to who we are and gives us the energy to live to our potential. Eatmindfully was created to nourish the cook within, simplify everyday nutrition and bring pleasure to the table.
