Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog. Here you can find out a little about me:
My name is Lorena Grater and I am…well….many things. I am a German Peruvian, I am a researcher, I am a university graduated translator, I am a globetrotter, I am a natural living enthusiast but most of all…I am a mother, a wife, a real food lover and a self-proclaimed chef caring for my family’s health.
I am married to a Mexican and I have two little children one born in Mexico City, the other in London, who are my inspiration and challengers at the same time when creating new recipes. I have always loved cooking – an art handed down to me by both, my Peruvian mother and my German father – but now, it has become a very essential part of my everyday life!
Green Healthy Cooking is all about offering real food recipes made out of 95% unprocessed food. Only 95% because let’s be realistic, not all of us have a mill to grind grains and make flour in the kitchen corner or a cow to milk in the entry hallway.
So, I’m keeping it real in a real-world scenario where all of us have about 39372920 other things on our daily to-do-list after “preparing a healthy meal”.
I do keep it as unprocessed as possible though. The more you make from scratch the healthier you will be and the better you will feel.
Most recipes here take a tiny little bit longer to prepare than what many people hope for. Take into consideration though, that we are what we eat and we don’t want to be fast, cheap, easy or fake, right? I invite you to take time out of your day to prepare a healthy meal almost entirely from scratch. Your body and your mind will thank you, promise!
My favorite ingredients as you can tell from the blog name, are GREEN!! This doesn’t mean absolutely all recipes contain greens but a large proportion of them. My family and I make sure to eat at least one green every single day of our life, hoping to one day, finally, get those green eyes my mom used to talk about when I was a child ;)
Changing your diet to a healthy one can be quite challenging if you want to keep enjoying food. Following my recipes, you can be sure you will meet your nutritional needs in a yummy way! Don’t gulp down your daily needs of vitamins and minerals but rather prepare your food and ENJOY eating healthy. Eat green, eat healthily, and enjoy cooking!
Lots of love from my kitchen to yours,
