My kitchen motto is "How can I make this more nutritious ?"

​Today I see myself as a Food Alchemist. My passion is combining foods, eating smarter, using the power of food synergy. Mixing and combining foods so that their health benefits are increased. Second in line come those adorable, monster green smoothies, then it's making dodgy teas (as my daughter calls them), concocting detox soups and making various tonics and tinctures with herbs. In addition to that I mix up my own electrolyte drinks and make my own sports "gels" using dates. They are a necessity when I am training for Triathlon competitions.
