"I'm passionate about expressing my creativity through food. I love marrying eastern and traditional wisdom philosophy and herbs, and creative original plant based meals to inspire and expand the possibility. I feel at home when creating meals it is a way to express my creativity. I love being deeply in experiments and letting my intuition lead in the kitchen.

I like working with food and herbs to adapt to life stressors, physical, emotional, environmental and spiritual. This could be a certain medicinal mushroom, tonic leaf or root tea. My own favourites are gynostemma and reishi. I also like astragalus for my immunity, he shou wu for deep nourishment, dong quai to balance my hormones etc. This is my goal and I feel at home working on wellness and educatin others about it too through my visions and aspirations.

I like to surround my family with non toxic materials food and non-food. It is very important to me to use products that are safe for us and the planet. Home is for replesnhing, rejuvenating, healing. It makes sense to be around toxic free in your space."
