Hey there! My name is Taavi Moore, and I am a recent graduate with my B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. My passion for nutrition and feeding the body with nourishing foods has translated into my love for sharing delicious recipes – found right here on my blog.
I am a firm believe in the non-diet approach, intuitive eating, and HAES (Health at Every Size).
So…Why did I start a blog?
It all started in 2015 when I decided to incorporate more plant-based foods into my eating. Throughout my journey, I have discovered that not only does plant-based food make my tastebuds happy, but they reap nutritional benefits as well.
With input and encouragement from my mom, I created a blog. I was always in the kitchen whipping up my own recipes, so now I had a platform where they could be shared. Over time, I developed a love for recipe development, food photography, and sharing the enjoyment of nutritious food.
I created this blog with the primary goal of showing how exciting and tasty plant-based cooking is.
- This is the type of eating that works best for me. While all the recipes on my website are plant-based, I encourage you to use ingredients that align with your lifestyle. This may look like substituting flax eggs for eggs, non-dairy milk for dairy, opting for all-purpose flour in the select GF recipes on my blog, and so on.
- I do not include nutritional facts on my website, because numbers (calories, macronutrient amounts, etc) can be triggering and sensitive for some individuals and I want my blog to be a safe space that encourages the enjoyment of food. I do not believe in calorie counting and making your food choices based on those numbers. If you need to know the certain amount of x nutrient in a recipe, then I encourage you to discover that yourself.
- I believe in a non-diet, intuitive eating approach and HAES (Health at Every Size). Thus, I try to stray away from diet culture language. However, many of my old recipes may include some sensitive language, because honestly I didn’t know better back then. Be patient with me as I update old recipes to reflect my current values.
