Hiya! I'm Meme, and welcome to Living Well Kitchen!
I'm a registered dietitian nutritionist who loves to cook, and I write this blog.
On Living Well Kitchen, you'll find approachable, nourishing recipes that prove living a healthy lifestyle can be budget-friendly, delicious & fun! The focus of my blog and business is on mindfully enjoying your food, accepting your body, and including more plants in your life without deprivation.
I enjoy creating recipes full of plants and strive to show how enjoyable living well can be!
I focus on preparing food (without a lot of fuss) that makes you feel good from the inside out. Instead of stressing about rules or calories, I help people celebrate food and life.
I hate to see people struggle with cooking, so I share 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)!
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 at every single meal every single day.
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.
In a nutshell, I want to share my passion for making cooking approachable and enjoyable. I love (and live) to laugh, so feel free to check out my bloopers over on my YouTube channel or Instagram.
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 work with brands to bring awareness of their awesome products to my readers and followers.
Since I am a registered dietitian nutritionist, I also provide nutrition coaching with an intuitive eating & health at every size approach. You can sign up for a 15-minute free call to learn more about working with a non-diet dietitian.
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.
But I also enjoy cooking (duh), 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, journaling, 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 -- pronounced Mee-Mee -- is a nickname my sister gave me as a kid, and it stuck.
And you pronounce my last name like "hinge" without the 'h'
