How did you get involved in cooking?

I began to learning how to cook when I was pregnant with my first set of twins. Prior to that, I ate to refeed as I was a competitive cyclist, trail runner and triathlete. I began exploring cooking by learning how to nourish my body and better support my children with food.

Describe your cooking style:

Simple, repeatable and sustainable for busy, working moms.
