I am super stoked to be working with Alex and Apex Fitness, and thank you for letting me be part of your Health and Wellness Journey. Throughout this Journey you will get to know me pretty well. For starters, I Love of Plants....especially Wild and Delicious Plants. Wild and Delicious, words I try to live by.
Living in the Midwest, I eagerly await the bounty of the Spring, a time of Rebirth and New Beginnings. The aroma of the damp forest, the fresh air, and beautiful lovely little flowers just emerging from the newly warmed soil stirs and invigorates my soul. They also invigorate my kitchen, and after a pretty bleak winter I am in need of some invigoration. One of my favorite things to do is forage a type of wild leek called Ramps, usually one of the earliest green edibles you find in the forest. Punchy and filled with an intense garlicky taste and scent, they add such vibrancy to your dishes.
This energizing happiness, trekking out into to woods and searching for my wild goodies, is a feeling I try to carry with me on my way to the market as well. I can achieve a similar experience discovering a fruit or vegetable at the peak of its freshness, just bursting with flavor and vibrancy. By anticipating how we will prepare these fresh finds at home, Cooking and Eating becomes something different, something more than just consumption. I want to Cook and Eat with Passion, knowing that our meal is not only delicious, but nourishing our body, mind, and soul as well.
I am looking forward to creating that feeling within you. Thank you, again, for welcoming me on your journey. As we progress, I will be adding various recipes and ingredient utilization techniques, along with my own personal stories, to the Apex Fitness Program. Peace and Love to you all!
