Hi there! I am so happy you are here! Since you stopped on by this page, I guess I should tell you a little bit about me...My name is Kayla and I have a passion for creating delicious and simple food using whole ingredients. I spent my life eating fast and quick meals that were not super nutritious, fast forward to a few years ago when health issues forced me to make a change in my diet. Since then, I have fallen in love with creating good for you food and finding ways to share my journey with others. I focus on simple ingredients and whole foods but allowing time to find fun in cooking. Plant based eating doesn't have to be boring and I am here to show you that you can still have fun in the kitchen and eat nutritiously.
When I am not in the kitchen, I love to spend time out in my garden or relaxing with my husband Michael and our two dogs, Gunner and Jax. I grew up in the Central Valley of California. I left to live in Monterey Bay for 8 years which is where Michael and I met. We have been together since 2015, safe to say we like each other at least a little! We have two precious rescue pups who take up most of our time. Gunner is five and is an English Bulldog/German Shepherd mix (How does that happen?!) Jax is four and is a Great Pyrenees/Pit mix. We moved back to the Central Valley in 2019 and have been enjoying our lives here, meeting new people, and discovering new passions.
I am an enneagram 3 wing 4 and have an undying love of The Real Housewives franchise. I enjoy reading and finding ways to serve in my community. When I am not sharing recipes, I work full time at a non profit finding ways to help support our community in the Central Valley of California.
Here's some cute pics of my puppies
