Hi, I’m Gracie. I’ve made it my mission to help others on their journey to healthy living.
When I was 15, my health had taken a turn for the worse. The doctor told me I needed to change my lifestyle. I was sick of feeling sick, so I started to research nutrition on my own. I was very determined but it did take time and baby steps. I learned a lot along the way, making mistakes in nutrition and in the kitchen.
Added sugar and processed carbs were in nearly everything I was eating. I wasn’t finding many options in local stores that would satisfy my cravings.
I was lucky if I could bake a frozen pizza. The only baking experience I had came from my toddler years including dirt cakes from the garden and Easy-Bake brownies.
Naturally, I like to do things my way. I would find recipes online, but I just couldn’t follow their ingredients or instructions- no matter how hard I tried! So I started experimenting. Day after day I would come home from school to bake using the best ingredients I could find. If I CRAVED it, I CREATED it. After much trial and error, I created nearly 100 recipes that not only satisfied my sweet tooth, but were good for me. I slowly started to feel better with a renewed sense of excitement about food and my health.
