Hi, I’m Nicole.

Born in the Los Angeles area, I migrated to Tucson, AZ for college.  It was here that I read the great Dr. Andrew Weil’s 8 Weeks to Optimum Health: A Proven Program for Taking Full Advantage of Your Body’s Natural Healing Power.

I also had a few mentors who introduced me to alternative and integrative medicine.  This is where my journey to understand health and wellness began.

You could say this is also where I opened Pandora’s box.

As a strict vegetarian for almost 10 years, I pay very close attention to what I eat.  This goes way beyond knowing what has meat and what does not.  You could call me a picky eater, that’s fine.  But there are logical reasons behind the madness.

Now that I have a wonderful baby girl, Cali, the scrutiny over food has increased.

Thanks to the love of my life, I now reside in a small town on the Big Island of Hawai’i. I enjoy nature and appreciate all of the wonderful foods that grow wild here on this island! I am lucky to have farmers markets and supermarkets that carry local fresh produce –including a local health food store.

I started this blog to inform others and to keep a record of my discoveries.  Sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with all of these crazy food politics! Can’t we just simplfy our food to what it used to be?
