Hi and welcome to Small Eats!
I’m Aimée, certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, yogi, designer, and a cook of delicious and nourishing food. I love learning, green smoothies, and finding new adventures to go on.
Small Eats started in 2013 as a way to share my mostly plant-based recipes and show my friends and family that healthy eating could be tasty after I gained weight in college. Just when I thought I had nutrition and health more figured out, things changed direction.
My job was also becoming increasingly stressful and less fulfilling. The scale wasn’t moving as much, my emotions were all over the place, I was so exhausted, and I had large patches of eczema on my shins and upper arm. My body was telling me enough was enough. At the same time, I was also feeling a stronger pull to help others with their health and wanted to take my knowledge to another level.
I enrolled in the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program to help others and also really helped myself. I moved to a lower stress job for my health, doubled down on my yoga practice and stopped eating gluten. My eczema is gone, my energy is higher, I’m losing fat and I feel so much better.
I know my story isn’t too unusual. Are you overwhelmed with stress? Trying to figure out how to balance your work and taking care of yourself? So busy it’s hard to find time to cook or you just don’t know what to cook that’s healthy and tasty? Want to meal prep but don’t know where to start? Confused by all of conflicting health information out there, telling you how you “should” eat and live?
I get it. There’s a lot of noise and things out there. I’m here to help you figure out what works best for YOU. We’re all different—we come from different backgrounds, have different preferences, like different foods… Life isn’t one size fits all. There are common starting points and general things that can help us all, but when it gets down to the fine-tuning and the perfect fit, it will be different for everyone.
They always say that the way to tackle big goals and dreams is with one foot in front of the other. Small actions that add up to larger ones. With small tweaks and steps, you can find your healthy and live the life you truly want.
At Small Eats you’ll find real food, gluten-free recipes that are nourishing, delicious, and approachable, as well as the answers to your health and wellness questions. They’re easy to read, understand, and act upon to get close to your health goals.
I’ve been blogging and creating recipes since 2013. I’m a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner focused on nutrient dense food. My recipes and wellness articles have been featured on The Girl Who Knows, Delicious Obsessions, Eating Rules, Wellbeing Network, Savvy Women’s Alliance and Azumio.
