I began this blog to share what I have learned about eating and cooking for family and friends, and to reveal what I’ve learned about preparing anti-inflammation whole foods. My hope is that from reading my articles you will want to try foods that may be new for you, and find that healthy anti-inflammation foods are satisfying and scrumptious. I am not a nutritionist, but I do know how to prepare tasty healthy foods that people enjoy eating.
I hope that you’ll follow along with me in this blog and visit the places that connect to my family, and to my food experiences: California, Arizona, and Spain. Along this road you’ll be given many cooking recipes, tips, and ideas for getting your own healthy eating habits. My hope is for you to feel stable both physically and mentally, lose any unwanted weight and keep it off, and be at lower risk for becoming another statistic for diabetes. Who knows, “My Healthy Eating Habits” may become yours.
My name is Mireya Merritt, but you can call me Mia. I’m a graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, and alumni of Le Cordon Bleu. I was fortunate to grow up in California, the birth state of the New Cuisine movement, and I have connections to Spain where I enjoy its rich food and cultural traditions. I currently work as a private contractor for Premier Food Safety teaching food safety to restaurant owners and managers.
For health issues, Rheumatoid Arthritis to be specific, I switched entirely over to eating whole grains and greatly reduced my sugar intake, as well as dairy and meat, while also making several other diet and exercise tweaks. The change has been remarkable. I feel strong, healthy, and I have stable weight and energy levels. It is important to me to share what I’ve learned so others can experience healthful living.
