Welcome to Simple Food Healthy Life. I am a twenty-something, newly married, dog mom, law degree holding, licensed attorney. Like so many others, I have found myself unemployed since graduating law school. Simple Food Healthy Life is my escape into my passion: the world of cooking and baking healthy foods and not-so-healthy desserts.

Over the past year I have transformed my exercise patterns, diet, and thoughts about the food I consume. While I don't follow any one school of thought, I do eat primarily vegetarian, organic foods. I'll throw meat into my diet a few times a month and always finish my night off with dessert in some form. I ran my first half marathon in May 2011 and include the gym in my daily routine.

I have just relocated to Stamford, Connecticut, where I will continue cooking and baking my way through unemployment, working to turn a passion into a career.
