Why Did I Start Cooking?

Why Did I Start Cooking?

Cooking was not always something that came natural to me. 

As a child, I naturally wanted to be in the kitchen.

I loved the smell of food.

I was curious about the connection of food from farm to table.

I enjoyed using my hands to create things.

Naturally, I loved watching my mom cook and wanted to learn myself.

However, my mom always shooed me out of the kitchen because of her own fears (My dad worked late so he was never home to cook).

Why am I health coaching? 
From a young age, I’ve struggled with all sorts of food addictions ranging from food and drugs due to lack of self worth. 
I would eat myself stuffed to numb my feelings of internal pain. After starting to have suicidal thoughts in 2012, I decided to change my life. 
I found my love of cooking and exercise. Suddenly, I started to feel liberated, free, and joyful. 
It was a way for me to be present while not thinking what was on my mind. 
I started sharing recipes and exercise tips to friends and co-workers. 
Before I knew it, I reached my goal weight. I felt strong, powerful, and confident.
