About The Kitchen Girl
I’m Traci…recipe-writer, picture-taker, produce-hoarder, and part-time dishwasher here at TKG HQ.
I’m pretty much always working to eat smart by simplifying the process of healthy cooking.
Smart eating is finally a THING!
Everywhere we turn, we’re seeing information about eating for health and wellness. This, to me, is how it always should be…it’s practical, healthful, and makes sense. But quite frankly, it can imply some intimidating lifestyle shifts. I certainly don’t expect anyone to master this overnight, let alone, know where to begin.
But, I’ve been geeking out on healthy cooking since I first left the nest and went off to college…you know, since before quinoa and kale were being consumed en masse.
Anywho…I want to help you navigate your way through, in a way that won’t break your wallet, your palate or your schedule.
WHAT WE KNOW:
If you say…
“I’m too busy to cook”
“I don’t know how to cook”
“I’m a terrible cook”
“I don’t like to cook”
Your options are limited to…
- Fast food
- Instant food
And can result in both short and long-term effects:
- poor nutrition
- exceeded budget
- not-so-ideal weight
- compromised health
WHAT WE CAN DO:
Consume more…(if your diet allows)
- Fresh veggies
- Fresh fruits
- Grains, legumes, nuts and seeds
- Refined sugars
- Animal fat
- Ingredients you can’t pronounce
- Processed foods, packaged, instant meals
TKG® IN THE FUTURE…
Behind the scenes, I’m continuing to create healthy-eating resources that fit your busy lifestyle. I’ll keep you posted as we build out new features to TKG platform. Feel free to jump on my email list to get updates and new recipes!
In the meantime, check out my recipe collection! These are the categories you will always find available:
- 30-minute dishes
- dips and spreads
And they typically include one or more of these characteristics:
- gluten-free (most of my recipes)
- vegetarian or meatless (most of my recipes)
MY FOOD BACKGROUND:
I’ve spent over a decade working around food in amazing restaurants (tapas being my fav!) and with prepared and packaged foods in the specialty grocery industry. And I’ve spent a few decades playing with food in my kitchen, aka my mini restaurant…or test kitchen…or both.
A few years ago, I took my food obsession to a culinary program with the #1 objective to hone my skills as The Kitchen Girl. We’re talking cooking, plating, planning, prep, costing skills, knife skills, aaaand sanitation. Yep, I’d do it all over again if I could – I loved it that much!
The Kitchen Girl® blog is where I’m sharing it with you.
