Hi, I’m Karen, a food blogger, photographer, and a Certified Health Coach. I am also a busy mom and wife trying to juggle practices, homework and dinner time. We have three teenagers aged 16, 14, and 12 and one super cute pup, named Cooper. 🐶
Seasonal Cravings is where my love of real food and the need for a creative outlet meet. After recipe development, my favorite part of this job is photography. I love styling seasonal, healthy dishes and sharing them with you guys.
So I’m on a quest to help you too.
Spoiler alert…this is the key to a long and healthy relationship with food…
Eat lots of seasonal vegetables + fruits + protein + some healthy fats.
That’s it? Sound easy. It kind of is! Oh yeah, and don’t deprive yourself. If you want a piece of Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Cake then eat a small piece and move on. Don’t beat yourself up about it. I have found over the years that when I avoid all sweets, I binge later on.
So why do I focus on gluten-free foods?
About five years ago, I was having stomach problems and fatigue so I met with a holistic nutritionist and decided to try to go gluten free for two weeks. She helped me do an elimination diet and I realized that gluten was messing with me. Luckily, I do not have celiac disease and I can tolerate some now and then. I know there are a lot of people out there who are on special diets and that’s why I label everything gluten free, paleo, whole 30 and dairy free.
If you are thinking you should try to give up gluten to see if it alleviates some symptoms or for less inflammation check out my How To Go Gluten Free The Healthy Way article.
So here we are. Let me help you feel better and look better. Stop dieting and start eating healthy seasonal real foods.
You deserve to take care of yourself!
