Hello, I am Delia

Going plant-based is when I discovered a whole other world of foods and the variety in my diet expanded to new lengths. The different flavor combinations, spices, fresh herbs, homemade dressings, marinades and cooking styles became a new way of living for me and I fell in love with this way of eating and being. 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 to pursue more so that I would be able help others heal through food and nutrition while still being able to enjoy the pleasures of good and flavorful food. 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 took culinary classes to become a better cook and learned how to layer the natural flavors in food into a dish that makes 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 health. I want to be able to help people have the chance to experience their healthiest lives and reconnect with foods in a new and exciting way.

Testimonials

 

3 years ago I began a healthy lifestyle journey based on the advice and inspiration of Delia. My job which require heavy traveling was really starting to turn me into a fast-food junkie and with it came all of the negative consequences; low energy, weight gain, high cholesterol, heart burn... I was, like many many Americans, slowly killing myself with food.


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 advise regarding recipes, shopping choices, how to read nutritional labeling and also pointed out the changes and gains I was making to keep me motivated.


3 years later my health issues have subsided, my weight has dropped down to normal levels and I feel better and have more energy than ever before. Lifestyle changes are tough and they’re almost impossible to make alone. Having a dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable person like Delia in your corner can truly make the impossible possible.
