My Culinary Beginnings
Growing up in a Family where the smell of food and the sizzle of pans constantly stimulated the senses at every family gathering, it wasn’t long before I started to pick up and learn the craft. As a kid I started as a pint sized Sioux chef peeling seafood and chopping seasoning and after I began memorizing family recipes I eventually graduated to cooking dishes and creating recipes of my own. Creole and Cajun cuisine is always based in tradition of spice & very rich flavors. While these dishes are delicious they are not always the best for your body in their traditional forms. This inspired me to create amazing recipes for foods that I grew up enjoying but creating them with a health conscious twist. Healthy versions of traditional New Orleans recipes without sacrificing taste! Living between 2 great cities New Orleans and Washington DC provided me a very unique experience and opened my eyes to cultural uniqueness and the underlying similarities of the two historic places. This inspired me to begin documenting my experiences and sharing them with the world. Join me on this journey to eat great food and still achieve the body of your dreams.
My Personal Beginnings
If you saw a rose that grew from a crack in the concrete you wouldn’t say… Euww look at the damage on that Rose’s petals… You would say, “Damn, that rose really grew from a crack in the concrete!!” as you would admire that rose’s tenacity… So you should admire mine. – Unknown-
