Over the last five years (pandemic inclusive thinking) I have oscillated between always being in the kitchen, to not being in it for weeks at a time while traveling for work. It’s always been a telltale sign of my happiness and feeling mentally centered. By that I mean, that I am evidently happy and feeling like myself most when cooking. Some of you out there will understand exactly what I mean by that, and to those of you, I wanted to share a few more reasons why I love my kitchen this year.Continue reading “Even more reasons to love your kitchen”
The Holidays are finally over, but the celebrations have continued into the new year for my family and I! Yep, our favorite time of the year isn’t over yet – when everything is all about love and sharing, reflecting on our actions, making resolutions for the year to come and of course, eating like there’s no tomorrow. It was the season to forget about your fitness program, or at least not feeling guilty about putting it on standby mode, cause: you’re totally allowed to do that!

Cooking, because it is something I’m quite good at and makes me feel grounded, even in the craziest of situations. Love, although let’s be honest, that’s a given by now as you all know. Our dog, because she’s one of the best parts of my life and one of the best decisions we have ever made. My family, because they support me as I work towards goals while reminding me of where I came from. And that’s just to name a few. I think sometimes it’s important to make a list of the things that make you happy because life is full of distractions, trials, and sometimes we can easily forget.
