I'm so happy you are here!
I’m Tabitha and I love all things food!
I'm originally a small town girl but now call Toronto, ON home and I am so pleased you stopped by!
I started my holistic journey after I went through a wild ride of my own health concerns that opened up my eyes and soul to the nourishment that cooking from scratch can bring. Through my journey of “health”, I started to restrict many foods that I was told were “bad” for me. As a result, I lost a ton of weight, measured this as an accomplishment, and attached much of my worth to my ever shrinking appearance.
I continued to restrict more and more to the point that I started to use food as a crutch to control other circumstances in my life that felt out of control. I entered dangerous the territory of orthorexia which affected every relationship around me, including the one with myself.
My journey has opened up a whole other part of me that I never knew could exist — it's taught me the beauty of being in the kitchen and creating wonderful, delicious food. It's taught me that cooking doesn't need to be difficult. It’s also taught me that learning to love ourselves is the greatest journey we can ever take.
It’s only in the last three years that I can confidently say this is where I’m at in my relationship with myself and I choose not to be defined by how my body looks.
By trade, I am a Culinary Nutrition Coach through The Academy of Culinary Nutrition. Along with cooking delicious food, I also have a love affair with craft beer and trying new beers in the city with my husband. I like to ride my bike in my spare time and do at-home yoga. I also truly appreciate a good patio, warm, wonderful sunshine and great conversation with good friends!
I'd love to hear more about your journey, and what brought you to here.
