Hello, I am Delia

When I went plant-based, I discovered a whole new world of food options and the variety in my diet expanded to new lengths. The potential that these plant-based whole foods had to offer was new and intriguing. I knew that food had a lot do to with our health and I knew that the way we have been living as a collective hasn’t been all that beneficial to our health and overall well-being. A graduate from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts as a certified holistic nutrition wellness practitioner. I studied holistic nutrition to be able to share knowledge about the healing properties of specific foods and learned how to apply those ingredients into modern everyday dishes. I learned to loved food in a way that I had never before and my relationship with food changed as well as my relationship with myself. This new found passion inspired me and I wanted to be able help others heal through food and nutrition while still being able to enjoy the pleasures of good and flavorful food. I took culinary classes to become a better cook and learned how to layer and bring out the natural flavors in whole foods to make your taste buds melt. I want to bring my love of creating delicious, healthy, and plant-based dishes to everyday people who are looking to change things up in their own kitchen and experience the flavor of quality foods while at the same time making strides towards improving their health. I want to help others to see the potential that these foods have to offer by showing them how to make them in their own kitchen and with that to see them have the chance to experience their healthiest lives yet, and reconnect with foods in a new and exciting way.

"Delia inspired me to switch to a plant-based diet. She quelled my fears and apprehensions about the stigma that comes with such a lifestyle change by constantly providing caring advice regarding recipes, shopping choices, how to read nutritional labeling and also pointed out the changes and gains I was making to keep me motivated."
