Inspiring Healthy Cooking

Welcome to my world!

A world in which healthy cooking is oxygen!

Many people associate healthy cooking with boring taste and flavorless foods. My mission is to prove that healthy eating can not only be delicious, but also that food is medicine, and that by living a healthy lifestyle you can take control of your health and of your life. Every aspect of my work imparts a philosophy of joyful cooking, whether in front of the camera as a reporter or spokesperson, behind the camera as producer or stylist, or in the kitchen developing recipes. So, let’s get cooking and collaborate!

Journalist & Author

Chef Leticia in Writing

Rarely do we think of a chef as a writer or journalist. Or a speaker. Or a producer. Or a spokesperson for a health campaign…

Living the life of a chef and working in many restaurants, she realized it was an impossible task to be a CHEF and a MOM at the same time. A deep desire to remain in the food industry pointed her to the food media avenue. She went back to school to study Journalism.
