My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Two myths to dispel:

  1. the vegan diet is not just for vegans. As a meat eater, you can actually find a lot of inspiration from vegan meals since you can simply add your choice of “animal” protein if desired.
  2. you CAN build muscle and lose weight on a vegan diet. As with any diet and meal plan, it is all about consuming the right portions and macronutrient ratios to support your fitness goals.

Here is one of my new favorite recipes, just in time for the cold weather – vegan chili with freekeh.
