One part cooking support, one part moral support for mealtime sanity.

Meals should nourish us, not make us nuts. But when you struggle with cooking and meal planning, see contradicting nutrition information and have self-defeating habits, it’s easy to feel crazed around food.

With cooking strategies and moral support, we can awaken our inner cooking and motivational gurus to restore sanity to mealtime and our minds, so we can #BeYumME.

On the journey of nourishing ourselves inside and out, we will learn how to cook when life is busy using strategies to whip up easy, craveable, nourishing meals, and shift our mindset, transforming what holds us back.

Let’s learn how to cook better, eat better, and feel better so we can cook up a #deliciouslife and say yum!

kitchen confessions

I have a confession.


Over eating and drinking have been my therapists, and its taken a toll on my weight. Am I the only one?


After much self-reflection, I realized they help mask my fear, anxiety and a lack of self-worth. Though I’ve lost weight multiple times, I always regained it because I never addressed the cause.


I realized I need a holistic approach to taking care of my body, where I transform the why I eat better, not just the how.


Now, the destination is not a number on the scale (like it used to be) but how I feel during the process. I practice feeling compassion for myself, making mindful choices and honoring what I’m really craving.


So now it’s time to #BeYumME – and enjoy my delicious self. I confess being imperfect, working on bite-size healthy habits, self-acceptance when I go off the rails, and cooking up craveable, nourishing meals when I can (and coming up with new strategies when I don’t) – all of which are the ingredients for a delicious life.


Is it possible to #BeYumME, even after years of self-sabotage?
