My name is Kayla. I am a registered dietitian whose two greatest passions in life are food and travel. I am currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin working as a freelance RD and traveling every chance I get. When exploring new cities I do my best to make acquaintances with local residents to learn everything I can about the culture, in particular the food culture. You will often find me perusing local markets buying fresh produce, spices, meats and seafood to, you guessed it: cook! I love trying new things whether it be an unusual delicacy or a new cooking style. These experiences reflect not only in my cooking, but in my evolving way of life.
My overall approach to health is a holistic one: sound body, mind, and soul. My practice is about more than just physical health, it is about promoting mental and social well-being too as it is all of these things together that are necessary for us to live our greatest lives. Finding balance is key so in addition to sharing nutrient packed recipes and expert health tips I look forward to providing daily motivation for all around healthy and happy living.
My philosophy on food is simple: eat foods as close to their natural state as possible: minimally processed, whole, natural foods. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables (and a lot of them!), keep an open mind to trying new things and ENJOY eating! I encourage mindful eating and maintaining a healthy relationship with food, which means allowing yourself to indulge occasionally. I think that what you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while. I believe in adopting a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle and I am so excited to share my journey with you!
