I am a registered clinical Dietitian, passionate about food and life.
I am obsessed with cooking, sampling new ingredients, styling recipes and helping all those who are in a complicated relationship with food!
My curiosity and great sense of discovery have entailed me to merge different cuisines in a handful of balanced ideas and portions and pushed me to show everyone that healthy food can also be tasty and exquisite…
For the past six years i have noticed throughout my work in the field of Nutrition and Dietetics that most of the people who can’t lose weight don’t do it, not only because they don’t have the will or time to go on a diet but also because they lack crucial information and educational hints and tips about the healthy methods of eating.The percentage of breakfast-skippers and snacks non-believers is very high in Lebanon and I came to this estimation by calculating the percentage of patients that I helped in my clinic and assisted through my live TV episodes by successfully modifying their lifestyles; including the 5 meals concept in their everyday life in addition to other healthy methods of eating !
I have to admit that it’s not an easy task to track down everyday and take in pictures what I am eating, whether I’m home cooking, styling my dish or at a restaurant enjoying a buoyant atmosphere , but for the sake of helping all those who are in a complicated relationship with food and correcting all the common misconceptions about dieting that people have, I was eager to start this blog!
La joie de vivre as well as the passion for eating in moderation are the key components of a successful life.I strongly believe that they are contagious and thus decided to share them all with You in this privileged blog where you can discover and learn from my daily food intake and adopt a healthier lifestyle full of sparkling positive vibes.
