Hi, I’m Kristin.

I live in sunny Los Angeles, CA with my lovely husband Raphael. We're both full-time filmmakers ( www.Kristin-Creates.com) and alongside my love for visual storytelling, I also love to get creative in my kitchen.

I created this cooking blog because I’m passionate about health and wellness. I truly believe you can heal your body with food… I have experienced it first-hand. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2014 and told by about a dozen doctors, nurses and pharmacists that I’d be on medication for life. I was determined to prove them all wrong and started researching everything I could on natural healing, thyroid health and hormones. Through an anti-inflammatory plant-based diet, lifestyle shifts like exercising more and practicing mindfulness and by working closely with a Functional Medicine Doctor - I’m happy to report that my thyroid levels are back to normal, I feel better than ever and I’m off my medication (woo-hoo!) Note: do not stop any medication without talking to your doctor! I am only sharing my own personal experience.

In 2017, I completed a 120-hour plant-based culinary nutrition certification simply because I love cooking so much and wanted to learn more about healing the body through food. Every recipe on this website is 100% gluten-free, refined sugar-free and plant-based with several grain-free options as well.

I hope this blog inspires you to have more fun in your kitchen and to feel your absolute best. You deserve it.

Peace & plants

This is Raphael. He's my #1 taste-tester & creative partner. If I ever post a beautiful cooking video, chances are he was behind the camera. He's the best.
