Hello and Welcome! I’m Monique, a Culinary School Graduate with a Bachelors in Journalism and Mass Communications from Arizona State University. Go Sun Devils! Currently residing in Sunny Arizona with my wonderful husband and two kids. My daughter Alina is 12 years old and my son Liam is almost 2 years old!
I love food! I have always loved food. I’m just one of those people who lives to eat. I was a food network junkie by the age of 10 living for my next amazing meal.
As a Culinary School Graduate, I was professionally trained in French Cuisine. Food loaded with butter, cream and calories. At the time this was my favorite type of food, I was always up for a little indulgence. After years of indulgence I started experience severe stomach issues. Sharp agonizing pains that could drop you to the floor in a second, along with a slew of other not so fun symptoms. I went to multiple doctors to determine the root cause. I was diagnosed with A-IBS.
There is really no medication or anything you can do for A-IBS. Eliminating “trigger foods” is one options to help ease symptoms. I found that animal based products along with high fat foods, such as fried foods, caused my symptoms. After eliminating all animal based products, I feel better than ever and full of life! My plant-based journey started as a simple diet but has evolved into so much more. With the knowledge I have gained, my appreciation for our planet, all it’s inhabitants and the benefits a plant-based lifestyle can bring have grown.
I have a serious passion for cultivating mouthwatering plant-based culinary creations. I also have a passion for all things health and wellness, striving to live my life as clean as possible for myself as well as my family. Alina is one picky eater so we are still working on her plant-based journey. You will find many family-friendly as well as picky-eater friendly recipes on the blog.
