I’m Amy, and I create healthy, real-food based recipes that are always gluten-free and focused around real, whole foods.
Whole foods are those that include one ingredient (itself!), and are in its truest, most natural form.
When I went gluten free to address a severe gluten intolerance that my husband and I had, I had to learn how to get creative in the kitchen. I realized that in having to “get creative” I could also incorporate these un-processed, more nutrient-rich, plant-focused ingredients into my dishes. The recipes that I create and share with you are always going to be filled with ingredients I feel great about, and that will help you feel great.
As someone who has always been involved in various sports and physical activities, nutrition has long been an interest of mine. It hasn’t been until recently, while in the midst of trying to heal from my own personal digestive issues, imbalances and deficiencies, that nutrition has taken an even more significant role in my everyday life.
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) in-training (NTA), I also aim to bring you information centered around holistic nutrition to help you live your best, most health-filled life.
I consider myself an active, fit person who is always looking forward to getting stronger in my next workout at the gym, always down for trying a new boot camp or spin class, setting new goals and physical challenges for myself, and getting outside to enjoy nature. My husband is a high-level competitive runner and running coach, as well as a full-time mechanical engineer, so we’re always on the go in one way or another!
In my house, we know how important it is to fuel your body with quality food — real, whole foods that are anti-inflammatory and often centered around plants — to get the most out of your workout, your run, your day at work, spending time with your loved ones, and maintaining your energy levels to get you through whatever your day throws at you.
The recipes I share will be healthy, but they will also be fun, accessible, and totally re-creatable by you. If you’re a busy working person like I am, who also squeezes in your workouts, having a social life, all while being as healthy as possible, you’ll find these recipes easy to make, satisfying, and delicious. Most importantly, they will fuel you for the things you love to do.
I hope you enjoy these recipes, and that they can become part of your table.
Thanks for visiting, and I can’t wait to share with you!
