About me

Hey there! My name is Raquel and I was born in Venezuela in 1991 which makes me 24 years young. After growing up in my beautiful country, I decided to move to Montreal, Canada, to pursue a bachelors degree in Nutritional Science in one of the most prestigious universities in the world. I graduated in 2015 and I'm currently working at a healthy food company in the R&D department (I do all kidns of stuff, from making nutritonal labels to implementing recipes in the system).

I started this blog in 2013 with the hopes of helping people achieve their health goals through healthy eating and active living. In August 2015, I gave the blog a twist to include not only recipes but also personal life experiences. After all, the best part of blogging is conecting with other people!

My nutrition philosofy is "all in moderation". I have personally struggled with weight and healthy eating habits, so realizing that equilibrium was the key to solving my problems has brought me peace and happiness. As one of my favorite bloggers once said:

"Food is fun. Food is not an enemy or a savor. It's not bad or good. It's a part of life. I like to enjoy food. Whenever possible, I like that food to be whole, healthy, delicious and well-made but I am not adverse to bread, sugar, dairy or alcohol. My food mentality for the past years has been 'everything in moderation' and it's served me really well."

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. What a well-traveled person you are! I love your story. So much more interesting than mine - I've never lived anywhere outside of California, and I've only been outside of the states once, to Canade last year. I'm excited to get to know you through your blog!

    1. I'm actually very curious about California, I've never been there but it looks amazing. I'm glad you liked my story, thanks for the comment :)
