Oh hey there. Welcome to Sweet Lizzy.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet 🙌
The Sweet Lizzy blog is all about living well and nourishing yourself sweetly. It is mainly a food blog with a little herbal and plant magic mixed in here and there. I like to share wholefoods recipes that I make, eat, and enjoy myself. All of the recipes are gluten free and many are paleo, whole30, or vegan friendly.
I haven’t always been into health, wellness and food. In fact, my parents had to melt that fake neon cheese over my vegetables just so I would eat them(I’ve come a long way)!
I only began to be more aware of what I was consuming when I started playing professional beach volleyball (yup I was a pro athlete-story for another day). After four years of exclusively eating the marshmallows from a Lucky Charms box in University it all finally caught up with me. I was sick all of the time, my hormones were a mess and my body couldn’t keep up with the pressure I was putting on it. Slowly, I started to dabble in healthier food choices and over the years I transitioned from a junkaholic to a full blown food and wellness lover(We are talking stage five clinger level). Learning to listen to my body and eat as intuitively as possible has been one of the greatest lessons.
When my career as an athlete came to an end I decided to take my new found interest in food and nutrition to the next level. I went back to school for Holistic Nutrition with the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto as well as Culinary Nutrition with the online Academy of Culinary Nutrition. I have spent time in organic kitchens making food and menu planning and now I try to incorporate wild foods and herbal medicine in my day to day life. Herbal medicine is my new passion and I intend on sharing that with you on Sweet Lizzy as well. I hope you enjoy reading and cooking from this blog as much as I enjoy writing it and eating from it. xo
