THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
Whether you are vegan or carnivorous doesn't matter; I believe homemade meals using fresh ingredients (less of the packaged, bottled, salty oily processed junk) is the most important first step towards optimal health, beauty, weight, and overall wellbeing.

HOW I GOT HERE!
I have been obsessed with coffee, baking, and vegetarianism since I was 13 years old [that's when I decided to stop eating meat]. In high school, I was the head pastry chef at a popular coffee shop near my house. I loved baking so much that I used to invite friends over before school started every morning for homemade lattes and scones.
After suffering from autoimmune disease, I changed my diet and completely erased all of my symptoms. Using my experience in baking I began making my own unique healthy cookies and snacks that were free from eggs, gluten, dyes, preservatives, and dairy.
And there began my vegan, gluten-free, organic snack food company, Kookie Karma, in Santa Monica, CA. I simultaneously studied for my Masters in Holistic Nutrition. I ran that business full time for over 11 years.
Kookie Karma products were featured in Whole Foods Markets, Amazon, and select health food stores nationally and internationally.
Now, I’m a happy single mom of 3 kids, living in Southern California with my tribe and cooking up a storm in my little plant-based kitchen.
I have been cooking for clients, consulting for health food start-ups, journalism, photography, and recipe development for other like-minded cool companies. Last year I finished an intensive course in Plant-Based Nutrition through Cornell University online.
