HELLO and welcome to my delicious blog! Let’s get inspired in the kitchen with food to make you feel HAPPY, motivated and full of energy! You see, being healthy is our decision to feed our happiness with good, fabulous-tasting food, it’s choosing to be active, it’s choosing to always look on the bright side of life. My name is Eartha (@earthacooks: see ABOUT). My mission here is to create, educate and entertain through my love for food. Healthy can start right here. All you’ll need is a good knife, an open mind, and your appetite.
