My name is Jazz, I am the food loving girl behind @recipes4health! I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. I played basketball and ran track in high school, then graduated from UC Santa Barbara (go Gauchos). Right out of college, I jumped right into the corporate world and worked for some pretty neat companies like Warner Bros and Toyota.
While working full time as a project manager, I also got a degree in Nutritional Therapy. Once I officially realized that my calling was helping individuals feel their best by uniting healthy eating, physical exercise with emotional positivity, I went for it. My husband and I quit our jobs and moved to Indianapolis, Indiana to pursue our dreams of working with athletes.
I am now a private chef for my brother-in-law who plays professional basketball on the Indiana Pacers where I put my nutritional therapy knowledge to use. I teach healthy cooking classes for the community of Indianapolis, and also teach indoor cycle/spinning at a local gym! In my free time, I love to create recipes for my Instagram, take yoga classes, discover new coffee shops and watch documentaries! I also have my very own eCookbook with 35 recipes, all taking less than 30 minutes with less than 10 ingredients!
I personally practice food balance and intuitive eating. I genuinely enjoy eating healthy foods but also have the common savory or sweet craving in which I treat myself! You will find my blog filled with simple plant based, vegetarian and pescatarian recipes. Follow me on social media to see what I eat day-to-day and learn how to make simple, healthy and affordable recipes for yourself and those you love!
