HI, I'M CRISTINA!
Welcome to mi casa!
I'm so glad you have decided to pass by. Please, feel free to come back as often as you want and check our plant-based recipes, services, products, and motivation to keep a healthy lifestyle starting with your body, mind, and soul.
I bet you are curious to know a little bit more about me. So here we go... I'm originally from Brazil. Yes, beautiful country! And even though I love my country and its people very much, I moved to Canada 24 years ago and then to US. Currently, I live in the beautiful state of Maryland. I'm married to my sweetheart, and I'm a very proud mama of two beautiful college students. Yes, I know, I'm an empty nester already!
I have been vegetarian for the last fifteen years of my life and vegan for the last seven. I love trying new, healthy, wholesome, plant-based recipes. You will find some of them here.
My education includes: a Degree in Early Childhood Education (go teachers!), a Certification on Holistic Nutrition, a Natural Health & Nutrition B.S., and right now, I'm desperately working on finishing my Natural Health & Nutrition M.S. (keep me in your prayers!). I also have a Diploma in Skincare Formulation. You can find some of my products here.
My goal is to provide educated support and knowledge for individuals who need guidance when it comes to healing their bodies and promoting overall health. You will learn that it is not about deprivation or completely cutting out favorite foods. It is about changing your lifestyle and mindset for a lifetime of health and happiness. It is about learning your own body and fueling it with proper nutrition and "real" food. It is about creating new habits and tastes. It is about finding the best version of yourself and showing it to the world!
If you are tired of feeling sluggish, bloated, overweight, unfocused, with no energy and unhappy with yourself, how about we work together on some change? Would you like to join me? If you are up to it, find my services here.
