Heartful health & nourishment 
for busy homecooks

Many of us want to experience a harmonized nervous system, more vitality, more mental clarity, and less pain and inflammation in the body.

I believe we can create nutrient-dense meals affordably and deliciously, even with a busy lifestyle!

My personal healing journey, along with my extensive experience as a chef and nourishment coach, inspires me to create incredibly tasty yet simple recipes for everyday life free of inflammatory properties. 

I also love sharing effective solutions, organizational tips and tricks to healthy living for the busy home cook.

​I invite you to take a heartful step toward clean eating so you can fully enjoy all that life has to offer.

In harmonious health,
Chef Maria
