A little bit of my story!

My story with the kitchen began at home when I was a child. My father, descendent of Italians which appreciated good food, was author of lunches gathering family and friends around traditional dishes of Brazilian cuisine.

 

As a child I loved to watch people cooking, I felt belonging to this universe. At 8 years I used to make salads and eaten raw, at 9 I was cooking already. My maternal grandmother was also a source of inspiration for me. She was the one who allowed me to stay next to the stove watching her cooking. There were days and days, years and years watching. So I learned and developed this gift.

 

I became a vegetarian at 13. I realized I could choose what I liked to eat and so I did. That's when my research on Conscious Food and Eating began.

 

I began to realize that my body responded differently according to what I ate. From 15 to 17 I deepened the research on  gluten and lactose. Found that various symptoms I felt were related to the form that I ate, one more change in sight.

 

I realized that hear my body was the best way to being healthy. And that everything around me nourishes me. That the best food is to follow this path with Love!

 

I have a degree in International Relations and specialization in Fashion, I worked in multinationals, studied Design, Art and a lot of things. I like to write, to study the Amazon Floral System which I also work, to do delights in the kitchen, teach, design, art ... I am passionate about books and kitchen!

 

I am currently a researcher on the master at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - UFRJ. My project is about Conscious Eating. I also travel around the world spreading my love for cooking and eating healthy and beautiful food!
