I’ve got a flaming passion for healthy food and an embarrassingly big appetite. Eating is my #1 hobby. Obviously, I love cooking and baking and spend almost all of my free time in the kitchen. I have a major sweet tooth and would be perfectly content eating just dessert for the rest of my life. I have been known to over-indulge on fruit…most days of the week. Because of my passion for health and nutrition, I plan to pursue a career in that area and help others lead full and happy lives.
My ultimate goal in life is to raise the healthiest family I possibly can. For me, this will be accomplished by owning a small farm, growing all of our own organic food, and spending the majority of the day outdoors. Until then, I’ll continue to spend the bulk of my time in the kitchen, with my incredible husband, or watching health documentaries. I’m the proud owner of a positive attitude and try to enjoy every beautiful day to the fullest. The result is a very happy me!
I am a foodie, I admit it. When I am planning my weekend fun or a great vacation, food tends to be frontrunner in my plans. I love spending time in the kitchen creating recipes upon recipes. I love to travel to new places and, yes, try the amazing food. Indian, Greek, Italian, Mexican, Caribbean, I don’t discriminate. In fact, I will probably do my darndest to imitate it in my own kitchen, though not always successfully.
In December 2011, I graduated with my Bachelors of Business Administration. I have been working as a paralegal for the last five years. I have big plans and dreams for my life. Maintaining my health is a big part of those plans, since I have to live a long time in order to achieve them all.
I am married to the greatest husband in the world. We have been together for over five years and it still amazes me how easy it is to be with him. I am taking him with me on my health journey because I intend for him to live a long time too.
When I’m not working, cooking, or hanging out with my hubby, you will probably find me running, doing yoga, kickboxing, lifting weights, reading, or writing out my business/life plan (consequence of my Type A personality).
I am thankful every day for the life I’ve been given. I have no reason in the world to complain – I have my health, I have an education, I have wonderful friends and family – and I hope that I am able to use all the blessings in my life to benefit others.
