Hiya! I’m Meme, and welcome to Living Well Kitchen!
I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist who just happens to love cooking, and I write this here blog where I share approachable, nourishing recipes to prove that living a healthy lifestyle can be budget friendly, delicious & fun! (yes, I said fun!)
I hate to see people struggle with cooking, so I decided to share all my knowledge and tips that I’ve collected along my journey of cooking delicious food to nourish my body (and not focusing on being skinny or eating miserable diet food)!
I’ve spent the past five years cooking primarily for myself, so I know a thing or two (or more!) about cooking for one. I also love entertaining and cooking for large groups, so I’ve got a wealth of knowledge in that, too. Cooking tasty, nutritious food is my passion!
My food philosophy is to enjoy the food I eat by eating real food that tastes great and nourishes my body. I feel that it’s more important to focus on all the wonderful things you can enjoy instead of foods to restrict. I couldn’t go through life without sweets or bacon, but I know I wouldn’t feel energized and satisfied if I were to eat these daily.
My life goal is to get more plants into people’s diet. Vegetables and fruit are God’s gift to our health and taste buds, and I focus my recipes on trying to prove that fact.
Remember: Life’s too short to eat bad food! Oh and life is a lot more enjoyable if you’re laughing 🙂
A little bit more about me…
Where are you from?
Where do you live?
Solana Beach, CA (just north of San Diego) — basically, I live in heaven
Wait, I thought you lived in New Orleans…
I did live in New Orleans but moved at the end of April 2016. I sold most of my things and packed what little else I had left and drove across the country to California in August of 2016. (You can read more about that here)
What is your job?
That’s an excellent question and one I try to figure out every day, ha!
I write this blog and am currently in the process of creating online courses to help people enjoy cooking. [You can check those out here!]
I am currently not providing nutrition coaching but that may change in the future.
What do you do for fun?
I love being outside! Hiking, spending time on the beach, watching the sunset, drinking on a patio – all good things in my opinion. I also enjoy cooking (duh) and reading (I am a total book nerd) and binge-watching Netflix.
Other things that bring me joy are lounging in bed in the morning, Bible study, meditation and naps.
Oh and I have the coolest niece and nephew in the world, so I try to spend as much time as possible with those kiddos (even though they are 2000 miles away. Thank God for FaceTime).
Tell me a random fun fact…
My real name is Margaret. Meme is a nickname my sister gave me as a kid, and it stuck.
