“As a chubby child whose nickname was “Big Mad” I have always had to exercise, and watch what I ate. I am thankful now, for that has served my mind and body well. At an early age, I was making grape jelly from our grapevine in our yard and apple pies from the tree in our front yard (when my brothers weren’t throwing them at each other)! My love to please others through food has continued all through my life, and I now have four amazing adult children, a husband, and a great family and friends, who I share my passion for healthy food with! The connection to food and health has always been a priority for me as heart disease and diabetes run in my family, and I now know that food plays an integral part in their prevention. I believe we should not deprive ourselves of what we crave, and all things can be eaten in moderation. I do find, however, that we seem to crave the foods that are good for our bodies the more we eat them.
My culinary scholarships, and awards, as well as studying abroad in Italy, have provided me with exceptional educational experiences. My severely allergic children and position as an Outreach Service Coordinator for the Mothers of Asthmatics, have also provided me with great knowledge and understanding in that area.
I feel blessed and honored to be able to help others and share my love and knowledge of health, fitness, cooking, and writing. When I am not in the kitchen you can find me with family or friends, exercising or traveling. I love to connect to others and help them live balanced, peaceful and healthy lives.”
