I’m Carrie and I’m so happy you are here. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, then you’ll know I’ve gone through some changes over the years. I followed a plant-based diet for 3 1/2 years but started consuming animal products again in 2014 due to some health issues I was having (you can read more about the specifics of what happened here). You may also like this post on “Lessons Learned from a Former Vegan“).
My intention is to inspire, inform, and connect with like-minded folks who are interested in finding health and balance. I love sharing recipes using ingredients that I find supportive to my health, and I encourage you to explore and figure which foods and practices help you meet your goals.
My professional background is in non-profit healthcare fundraising. I have masters degrees in business administration from the University of Southern California and in public health (nutrition) from the University of Massachusetts.
My interest in wellness began over a decade ago to address the debilitating migraines, allergies, hormonal imbalances, and anxiety I was experiencing. After extensive research and study, I transformed my diet, substituting processed foods with whole food ingredients.
In 2012, despite resolving most of my health issues, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I underwent surgery and am now living cancer-free. Since then, I’ve been working on my physical and emotional health, incorporating intuitive eating and mindfulness into a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
