Welcome!

I'm Christi, a Marketing & Branding Exec and Insta Chef. Here's the deal, I lost 90lbs, but I love food and eating, so I started cooking to reinvent my favorites into healthier alternatives. It's usually healthy, generally paleo-ish, sometimes Whole30. I will never be able to live without good cheese!
