How did you get involved with cooking?

The women in my family are all amazing chefs, so they were my initial inspiration. I’m naturally very curious, so I started experimenting in the kitchen at a very young age. I used to have a sweet tooth, so I initially I learned how to bake. As I got deeper into my health journey, cooking eventually became part of my lifestyle.

How did you learn about grass-fed meats?

I am very health and environmentally conscious. I had a lot of digestive and health issues growing up. I became very serious about where I source my food when I started learning more about the gut microbiome. I came across grass-fed meat when I initially started my nutrition research. Some of my favorite authors/proponents of sustainable eating are Dr. Ronda Patrick, Dr. Mark Hyman and Dave Asprey.
