I’m a Nutritional Consultant, Illustrator, health and fitness enthusiast and I love to cook healthy food. I try to avoid sugar and grain but I'm not always 100% stickler to the rules. *gasp*
I always try to create recipes that are healthy that the whole family can enjoy.
Also, I like to just post great recipes. Not a history of the recipe, if my friends and neighbours liked it, how many acrobats were harmed in making the recipe or zillions of photos of said recipes. Keeping it simple.
If you have any nutritional questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
