“We all eat & it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly.” – Anna Thomas
Hello, everyone and welcome to my blog, Eat Drink Savor Repeat!
I’ve always dabbled in the kitchen, but after living in Munich, Germany for a summer in college, I had my first true solo experience navigating the kitchen; it was both terrifying and exhilarating. I really enjoyed the German supermarket mentality — most items were fresh, little was processed and stores were more the size of markets rather than warehouses. To top that off, snack food as we think of it was hard to find.
This idea of eating to savor and not eating to eat developed. After doing a graduate program at Cornell, Ithaca’s farm-to-table, locally grown foodie culture and farmer’s market fully drew me in; I was hooked on all things fresh, whole, healthy and just clean eating. As a nurse practitioner student in Boston, I think the right food opens so many doors for good health and overall well being. I wholeheartedly believe eating more fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean protein, while eating less of sugary, processed foods makes you feel good inside and out.
Food should be fun and something to thoroughly enjoy — even savor! It shouldn’t be a chore nor should it be about sacrificing taste and flavor to count calories. I try to incorporate as many whole foods as possible, with little added sugar and processed ingredients. Through my blog, I’ll share recipes I’ve found, modified or made myself, as I try vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free meals (because why not try new things?), and as I cook and create just healthier dishes.

So stop, look around, and get ready to eat, drink, savor & repeat!
