Nice to meet you, I’m Josi.
In 2010 I moved across the world into a little 200 sq ft apartment in northern China. I had no understanding of how a kitchen works. I was forced to either live on
Youtube was not a big thing then, but the internet was definitely in full swing. I remember searching for ideas of things to cook and then making it 10 times that month because I figured out something new. Soon my neighbors were making the same food.
Learning to cook with the available ingredients pushed me to learn to improvise and try new things. There were several takeaways from my four years there; apple cake is always a good idea, the world needs more garlic, and I still can’t cook rice to save my life.
Fast forward to 2017 when a friend asked for low carb food to be brought as she recovered from giving birth. I thought “Low carb? The heck? What does that even mean and .. seriously.. What?”. At the same time, I was struggling with my weight, thinking that the “organic” food choices I was making were healthy and that was that.
Whether you are exploring a low carb lifestyle, are already cooking low carb meals, or you have no idea what a carb is, I want to welcome each of you. I hope in some way to serve you as you are on your journey.
The truth is, I am not against all carbs. I am someone who enjoys food and I firmly believe that moderation is key. I also believe that it is important to learn about what is fueling your body and learning to make the best choices that work for you. While many of these recipes will serve the Keto community, the THM folks, these are a mixture of low and slow carb recipes. My aim is to provide you with lower carb alternatives to the carb-saturated American diet.
In no way am I a professional, or someone who has a degree on nutrition. I am just a wife and mama who loves to learn and inspire others to make delicious food.
