Hi, I’m Kelsey – a certified Nutritional Therapist and Natural Paleo Chef living in Santa Monica, CA.
My passion for food has been a long and winding journey, from my adventures with my Easy Bake Oven as a child, to running the juice bar at a local health food store in my late teens, to now taking my adventures to the next level by combining my education in nutrition with my love for tasty food.
At the age of 14 I decided to become a vegetarian – this began my deeper exploration of food and how it affects our bodies. This also started my cooking career, as I was the only non-meat eater in my immediate family and often had to fend for myself in the kitchen.
After several years of being meat and animal-product free, I succumbed to debilitating, idiopathic (a.k.a. undiagnosable) health problems in my late teens and early 20’s. Frustrated by what the doctors couldn’t help me with, I began a more directed mission to understand the effects of food on the body – in particular, I became interested in how I could use food to heal my body and recover from my mysterious illness instead of becoming dependent on prescription drugs or submitting myself to unnecessary surgeries.
After years of exploration and learning I’ve discovered what I think are the best dietary practices for a balanced, healthy life – my diet today includes equal amounts of green vegetables, lean meats, butter, and a little bit of chocolate and wine 😉
Now I’d like to share my discoveries with you! I hope you’ll find the resources on my site helpful, inspiring, and at the very least entertaining.
Here’s to your health – so you can Look Good,
Feel Great, and Have More FUN!
