Why Glorious Greens? To be honest, a friend helped me come up with it. Would you have preferred LeannimalEats? I didn’t think so. Basically, I love spinach and trying to find new recipes that I can work my leafy friends into.
I hope this blog will help remind me of the things that matter in life as well as the things I am truly passionate about. I love to cook and I love fitness. I think I started begging my mom to help cook dinner when I was about 5-years-old. I vividly remember her letting me sit on the counter-top and watch her and after that I was hooked. I think I am happiest in the kitchen or trying new foods or wines. Sports and fitness have always played a big part in my life, I even won health student of the year 2001 (my senior year). In college, I developed an unhealthy relationship with food and working out which continued until my senior semester abroad. That semester I met so many girls that were confident with their curves and passionate about their cultures cuisine and this helped me heal and start to re-build my broken relationship with food.
Shortly after I returned to the states, I started dating EJ. I had never really bought into the phrase, “when you know, you know” until then. Although we had known each other for a few years, within a few weeks I knew this was the guy for me and I had met my match. In 2008, we got married and that day is still one of the best days of my life. Mushy, I know.
I am currently one year into my MBA (along with a full-time job) and although I like learning, I can’t wait to have a my life back. I’m almost done with my MBA and hope to finish my last 3 class this year. Cue the fist pumps.
I still committed making my health a priority in my life but as I new mom, I’m still trying to navigate between all my “hats” in life. After pregnancy and labor I have a new found appreciate and love for my body, I’ve never been so impressed by the human body, it’s pretty ridiculous.
I am not sure what will come of this blog or how good I will be at photographing my food creations, but I have a lot to say and I hope that I can give support to others who are going through the same or similar struggles.

I have a running list of things that I think should be free in life, because if everyone had access to these items we would all be more balanced and happy. 🙂
My list of things that I think should be free
