My name is Elena and I am obsessed with healthy food and nutrition and generally a healthy lifestyle.
So I made it my life’s’ purpose to encourage people to eat more healthy.
I am a professional Chef by trade and have been in the hospitality industry for a couple of years now.
Healthy food doesn’t necessarily mean tasteless or bland.
You can definitely make healthy food taste delicious and I am here to prove that to you with recipes I have created for Vegans.
I am a Chef, so I would like to believe that I know what I am doing when it comes to cooking delicious food.
I am also a huge foodie, I love to experiment and try new foods, new cuisines, and ideas (like pineapple on pizza 😀 )
There are hundreds of reasons why eating healthy is good for you and for the environment.
Let’s start with the health benefits.
You will feel healthier, and you may not know it, but eating healthy and loading up on veggies can reverse so many diseases, and keep your immune system in check!
But if you are someone who wants to eat healthier so you could lose some extra weight, I have got good news for you!
Eating healthier will definitely help you shed down the pounds without much effort. Just limiting eating junk food will help you lose weight.
I have got 3 general rules for staying slim:
☆If you crave something, just eat it.
If you forbid yourself certain foods and restrict yourself, you will end up binging on the food you craved and ruin the whole thing.
It’s the key to losing weight, the rest is bullshit. You can eat a stack of pancakes worth 600 calories for breakfast, but if you eat another 600 calories for the rest of the day you are going to lose weight. It’s all about calorie deficiency.
Simple as that…so, fancy ice cream for breakfast? Sure go for it. But that’s not why I am here, I am not here to encourage you to eat ice cream for breakfast, I am here to encourage you to eat a healthy nutritious breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Let me explain...diets are useless and temporary, you want to make this change your lifestyle. If you diet, you will hate it.
If you restrict yourself from eating foods you enjoy or crave, you will hate the lifestyle. Don’t restrict and don’t forbid anything.
We are humans and we have our needs, and indulging into some comfort foods is one of life’s’ pleasures, right? …as long as you don’t do it on a daily basis, you will be fine!
I have struggled with an eating disorder for many years, and eating healthy was the only thing that helped me get through it. The only thing I regret is not seeking help. But healthy food and a change in my mindset about food and my relationship with food was my cure.
I started finding satisfaction with food without going overboard. I started enjoying eating more vegetables and less processed food. I did not force myself to like it, I genuinely enjoy eating salads, broccoli, kale and all the other foods that are considered boring and bland.
Eating healthy is like working a job, if you don’t like or enjoy the job, you will hate it. If you love the job, you will always enjoy it, and won’t really see it as a job. Seriously, if you don’t enjoy eating healthy, do not force yourself just because you know it’s “good” for you.
it’s so, so important to enjoy what we do in our lives.
I have been through a few eating disorders, and the biggest cure for me was eating healthy clean food.

Now, this blog is my life’s purpose, because it is to encourage people to eat healthily. Eating healthy has hundreds of benefits. From reversing diseases to keeping you in shape, giving you energy, and building a happy mindset.
A happy home means a happy family, and our bodies, they are our homes!
So take care of your homes!
