The first word that came out of my mouth was "more".
Subsequently, I was a chubster throughout my childhood who couldn't turn down food or comprehend the feeling of a full stomach. Needless to say, I had a connection with eating early on that developed into a deep love and appreciation for cooking.
My earliest memories with food take place in my grandmother's kitchen where I learned firsthand how to make my own pizza dough and roll the perfect meatball. My unparalleled culinary education began in that kitchen, one-on-one, from an uncertified, under-recognized, home chef champ.
It was somewhere between my growth spurt and voice dropping that I came to care about my health and how I presented myself. My body could simply no longer keep up with my old eating habits, and I knew that a lifestyle choice had to be made. I was finally able to find the right balance - where I didn't feel like I was sacrificing what I loved, while at the same time making decisions that made my mind and body feel good.
