A Bit About Me…
Hi, I’m Natalie! I’m a teacher, travel lover, safe skin care advocate, and food blogger. I’ve loved cooking ever since I can remember. My mom is from Greece and I’m pretty sure to blame for my cooking obsession. If you know a Greek than you know what I mean. 😉 My dad was a health and adventure nut who loved rugged travel- we spent much of my childhood exploring Mexican villages together… mainly Sayulita, where part of my heart remains to this day.
Needless to say, my cooking influences stem from all sides of the world. Growing up, my mom made all of our meals from scratch, each day a different cuisine. One night it’d be Indian, then Thai, Greek, and so on. Despite her many cookbooks, I never saw her use one- she crafted as she went, creating one awesome spread at a time.
That’s how I learned to cook. Thanks to my parents’ health-conscious eating and worldly ways, I now enjoy spending my free time learning about nutrition and getting creative in the kitchen too. ♥
In addition to food and nutrition, I passionately work to bring safer skin care to the mainstream along with Beautycounter and some fabulous friends. I’m becoming more of an activist with each year I grow.
A Bit About the Blog…
You’ll find all types of recipes here. Eating is such a personal journey…. I eat what my body likes and craves. I cook from scratch and love to experiment. It’s about the challenge for me- to see if I can make a crazy vision come to life. I personally aim to minimize my intake of inflammatory foods- aligning closest to Paleo if I had to choose- but I’m not a strict person by nature. I’m a libra, I like balance. I enjoy celebratory bevies and devour snacks like a wolf- but value real food and good health all the while. 😉
Welcome to Honey, Ghee, & Me… I hope you find a few meals to enjoy!
