Faith on FB+Food
I’ve always been passionate about food. From the time I first laid eyes on a chocolate frosted doughnut, to all the days that my hands were stained the unnatural shade of orange that can only come from wading chest-deep through a pool of Cheetos, food and I have walked a long and winding road together.
When I became a fitness instructor in college, I was 35 pounds heavier and felt 100 times sicker. I took the classic “treat yo’ self” mentality to another level once I was Spinning 5 times per week and “could eat anything I wanted.” It wasn’t until my senior year that I had to be honest with myself and come to terms with the fact that the “food” I was putting into my body wasn’t food at all. I bought myself a juicer and a couple of pots and pans, and the rest is history.
Well, not really.
Cooking for other people is my love language, but cooking for myself took (and still takes) a massive adjustment in the way I love myself. Living with and cooking for two roommates helped me to realize that I can still love on people by making them delicious and comforting food, but the real love comes from nurturing them from the inside.
FB+Food was born from the passion I found in not only making other people’s lives easier, but also in showing them that nurturing, good-for-you food can be less of a headache and more of a joy.
