HEY THERE! ♀️#thisisme
My name is Dawn and I created #backtorootskitchen from my deep love for the farm I grew up on, plant-based nutrition, the culinary arts and all things nature
I refer to myself as a “Plantiful Soul Chef” - I cook from my heart and soul AND I am always guided by my intuition and nature.
My plate is always filled with mainly plant-based foods which I have been eating and cooking since becoming vegetarian at a young age.
My intuition and body told me plant-based eating was my nature when I was 4, but because I was so young my family of steadfast meat eaters wouldn’t allow my eating lifestyle until I turned 11.
I managed to convince my parents to no longer feed me eggs when I was 6 - I couldn’t stand the smell, texture or taste of them! Complete gag reflex 🤮
I later found out that I was allergic to eggs and heme iron - the form of iron found in meat. Interesting how the body knows! And, I knew to listen
I have been cooking and baking since I was 6 & knew it was my calling after taking my first cooking class when I was 8. I took a rather long detour into the fine arts, traveling, photo journalism, anthropology, psych and sociology and now I’m right where I’m meant to be - sharing my love and gift for plantiful living with others.
I am all about growing my own organic food and making meals from #PlantToPlate - this is truly where I shine! But most of all, I absolutely love talking about all things food and nutrition as well as sharing my tasty “plantiful” creations with others.
Growing up on a farm surrounded by pets and plants, my love for animals and gardening also runs deep. I am very in tune with nature! Being outside daily is an absolute necessity for me. You’ll see
Essentially, being gifted with a very creative, imaginative mind and a compassion for all life, I feel my ultimate purpose is to inspire YOU by sharing my “plantiful” lifestyle and outdoor adventures. So, come play with me outside and in my kitchen on my plantiful journey!
Now, share a little about YOURSELF and tell me how I can inspire YOU to live an abundant “plantiful” life!
