Hello, I’m Kimberly from Little Sprouts Kitchen! I live in sunny, San Diego, California. I moved to the west coast almost six years ago from West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). I originally moved out here for work, but have found a reignited passion in cooking. When I moved, I completely changed up my lifestyle. Nutrition and exercise became pillars of my daily life. I always had a passion for baking. I used to sit on the countertop in the kitchen growing up and watch my dad. Now, I apply that passion towards finding healthier alternatives.
I have been blogging at Little Sprouts Kitchen since 2013. I love finding healthier ways to make classic dishes. I am a busy woman and quick, healthy meals are key. I love making them to share with all the people out there who are on the go, but don’t want their health to suffer. I also find it very relaxing. I love to come home after a long day and cook in the kitchen. I changed my lifestyle to follow the Paleo Diet. In a nutshell, I eat lean meats, vegetables, nuts, and some fruit. Two of the biggest items I cut out were gluten and dairy. The difference to my overall health is an amazing transformation. Prior to making this change, I suffered from Graves Disease and Anemia. When I was struggling with my health in my late teens/ early twenties, the only nutritional advice I received was to “eat more broccoli”. There was zero guidance or information on the fact that an overhaul to my diet would mitigate my autoimmune diseases. The fuel that we use in our bodies makes a huge difference! I am now healthier and have more energy! I love life and everything the positive changes I’ve made have done for me.
For the next week I will be checking in to answer any questions you might have about the Paleo Diet! Feel free to ask anything from how to make a common dish Paleo to it’s health benefits.
