about me

I'm Karen and I love talking about nutrition and exercise -- just ask anyone that shares a meal with me.  On this blog you will find recipes that I use along with items I find interesting about nutrition, exercise, and wellness in general.

how I eat

I try and eat a whole-food, plant-based diet.  I say try because I currently live in Prague, Czech Republic and do enjoy eating out with my husband and friends on occasion.  Even though I always specify no animal food and no oil, I can't always be sure that this is the case.

However, when I eat at home my diet is strictly whole-food, plant-based.  I never cook with oil.  In fact, there is no oil in my kitchen.  All of my fat comes from food: vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and nuts.
