Hey there, I’m Kit. Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my blog. I started this blog because I love good food. I also love healthy food that actually tastes good. Because, seriously, what’s life without tasty food?
A little over four years ago I decided to clean up my diet and really start focusing on foods that helped my body instead of just eating to fill myself up. I was tired of feeling sluggish, having acne, and having a little more body fat than I wanted. My esthetician suggested cutting out dairy and gluten, limiting refined sugar, eating only organic/pastured meats, and focusing on eating lots of fresh produce. After a few months I realized that my new diet actually lined up pretty well with what was being called the paleo diet. I’m not really into labels though. Especially since I eat a variety of foods that are not considered paleo. If I like a food, consider it healthy, and my body doesn’t seem to react poorly to eating it, then I don’t see a reason to eliminate it from my diet. So, while my blog not a paleo blog, per se, the majority of my recipes are still paleo or primal. Whew! Glad I got that all out there.
Cooking has always been a huge part of my life. And so has the ocean. I have lived in 9 different coastal regions around the world so far. All of these regions have their own traditional dishes and styles of cooking. I love taking these traditional dishes and making them my own. That usually means making them a whole lot healthier and often converting them into something paleo-friendly, while still maintaining all of the deliciousness. The results are just too good not to share. And that, my friends, is why I created this blog.
Oh, and in case you were wondering — I am from the United States, but currently live in the Netherlands!
I hope that my recipes inspire you create something delicious, fresh, and coastal! Oh yes, and healthy too 🙂
