About Maria


Maria struggled with her weight throughout childhood and decided enough was enough.

Maria understands the connection between food and emotions, how it makes us all feel on the inside and out.

Her blog includes a unique combination of innovative recipes using alternative ingredients to less healthy options and easy to understand explanations of why these options are better for our health.

Weight loss is often a side effect of helping treat any number of problems including diabetes, cholesterol issues, alopecia, Hashimoto’s, autoimmune diseases and much more.
