Hello! I am Patricia, a 35 year old neuroscientist and mama of 3 spunky boys and a loving husband living in Toronto, Canada.
I am passionate about research, making and enjoying delicious easy recipes, eating intuitively, packing healthy food to go, gardening, and healing our bodies with whole plant based foods. I teach and educated our children on the power that fresh whole foods have over our bodies and the importance of trusting ourselves to eat intuitively.
However this was not always my passion. I began on this journey after my son became sick. He was suffering from eczema, multiple food allergies, stomach pain, slow sluggish digestion, and behavioural issues. We were lost as to how to help him and frustrated having to watch him live in pain and irritation. His abdomen was always swollen and he was alway close to threshold with his emotional state. With no clear answers we began on a journey of healing and recovery using whole plant based foods (read more on this here, and our eczema story here).
I initially began an instagram account as a way to gain inspiration and recipes for our new lifestyle. I was feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed with all the cooking and changes that we were making in our lives and needed some guidance and direction. Over the first year it evolved into something beautiful. A supportive community that has inspired and fuelled my love of simple, easy meals that heal and nourish our bodies. This first step opened my eyes on the power of healthy eating.
I hope to share what I have learned through these past few years on here. I want to share the recipes we make and the journey we are still walking to hopefully inspire and educate those seeking their journey to health.
