Ola, I am Patricia. Thank you for coming by! I am a Brazilian-born, now Toronto-based mom of 3. Now a food blogger, recipe and content creator and food photographer (with a side of Ph.D. πŸ™‚ I love creating healthy family recipes focused on gluten-free and plant-based ingredients.

The connection we share between food and family is so beautiful and magical. I always strive to capture that feeling on camera. Originally trained as a neuroscientist, my passion for recipe creation and food photography sprung from the desire to share how powerful healthy eating can be to our mind and our body.

What began as a personal journey for our family transitioned into sharing our gluten-free vegan recipes with a like-minded community online. Connecting with people over food is such a unique and rewarding experience. And what better way than to connect than through mouth-watering images.

My images are shot using natural light and real food ingredients. I love taking lifestyle food photos and product shots and creating easy and healthy family recipes.

I love inspiring easy family meals ideas to share with my virtual community. The recipes you will find here are plant-based, gluten-free and always kid-approved. However. delicious enough for the adult palette. I love collaborating on recipe development and photography with food brands or bloggers that align with my message and morals. Clean healthy eating based on real food ingredients with a focus on plant-based eating, gluten-free options and minimal waste.

My greatest joy comes from photographing food and the customs surrounding making and eating a meal. My passion for photography was born in my homemade darkroom in my childhood home. Through the years it has grown to showcase the power food has over our health.

When not taking photos or developing recipes I am hanging out with my three energetic boys and husband. And we are likely camping, hiking or on a football field.
