Hi and welcome to Nourish Me!
I am excited to share my food with you! I started Nourish Me! because I think it is important to eat food that is based on the latest scientific research. In your food, there are ingredients that are good for your body, and there are others that your body doesn’t benefit from. My goal is to create meals for you that are delicious and fuel your body the right way.
Nourish was started as a way to help everyone
achieve a diet that is good for their body and mind. I believe that the food we put in our mouth directly affects how we feel and how our bodies function. That is why it is so important to understand what is inside the food we’re eating.
I chose the name Nourish Me because as a child, growing up on the farm, the way I ate influenced my relationship with food later in life. I would go over to my grandma's house a lot for meals. Everything she made was from scratch and usually from the garden or orchard. We would sit down at the table and talk and eat. I always thought of these meals as truly nourishing! I believe that really good food has a story and is savored with friends and family!

What’s Special About My Cooking?
All of my food is made from scratch with whole foods and no preservatives. I specialize in cooking food that helps reduce inflammation, improve gut health and especially help people who have autoimmune diseases.. There are many benefits to changing your diet.
Some of the health benefits include:
- increased energy

- reduction or elimination of joint and muscle pain and skin related issues like psoriasis
- getting rid of migraines, chronic headaches
- getting rid of bloating, IBS, Acid Reflux
- less need to take medication if any
What I’m really good at is planning meals and snacks that you will enjoy eating that also fit within the diet that helps you feel your best!
More About my Food
My recipes are developed using alternative flours like almond flour that replaces bleached wheat flour. I use macadamia nut butter, and walnut butter, as other healthy butter alternatives in muffins, cookies and pies. I incorporate sweeteners that are good for you, like date paste, honey and maple syrup to replace processed sugars.
“My ultimate goal is for all my healthy food to taste good AND benefit your body.”
All my recipes only include ingredients that benefit your health because your body needs all the nutrients it can get. Let me help you design your way away from processed sugars, artificial ingredients and unhealthy oils and fats and into delicious ways of eating vegetables, fruits, baked goods and whole grains.
