My name’s Faith. I’m a married, 26-year old living with my husband in
NYC China! For the past four years of my life I had the privilege of traveling around the world for my job, but as of right now, my husband and I are trying to figure out our new life in China! Oh, and learn Chinese.
When I’m not focusing in language class, running with my husband, stocking up on produce at the markets, or out with friends, you’ll probably find me at home experimenting in the kitchen. The funny thing is, I honestly used to hate cooking. When I was young I would always tell my mom that I would rather clean, weed the garden, or do dishes…basically anything other than cook. Man, have things changed! Starting in college and especially when Brett and I got married – and I actually had someone else to cook for – I discovered my love for cooking.
When it comes to health I love challenging and pushing my body and I’m often thinking about what kind of physical event I want to train for next. Right now I have my heart set on a marathon. But when haven’t I?
My love of exercise (and stomach pains after eating dairy) is what first caused me to care more about how I fuel my body. I want to eat consciously, feeding my body fresh, whole, and nutritious ingredients so that I can have the energy to accomplish my goals. This desire is what initially led me to study more about nutrition and eventually make the switch to a plant-based diet.
This blog is a place where I can document and share my experiences in the kitchen as I learn the basics of plant-based cooking and baking. I hope to see my cooking skills improve along the way, especially now that I’m living far away from the convenience of American grocery stores!
I’d love to get to know you and what you’re passionate about, so don’t be shy and introduce yourself!
Oh, and here’s a picture of Brett and I on our wedding day! He’s amazing and is willing to eat any vegan meal I cook him. He’s also been supportive through many a botched meal. What a stud.
