At the end of a long day everyone loves to have a home cooked meal as good as Mom used to make. 

The problem is that most of us are tired and really don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen researching and creating new recipe ideas. You love to cook, but time is a precious commodity. For others, they struggle with confidence in their cooking.

A Word About Heather, The Fed Up Foodie

The Fed Up Foodie About Me Picture

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! My name is Heather and I live in sunny San Diego county. I hope to take you on a journey that inspires you with flavor filled recipes. I believe food should be soul satisfying while helping you to feel like the best version of yourself. I joke often that I am a walking oxymoron because I love nutrition and I love to eat. This makes me very sensitive to balancing the nutritionally dense meal with the “just give me the fork and let me dive in” feeling.

I come from a family where food was a significant part of our foundation. My mom had a huge love of cooking and creating meals.  It is how she expressed love to us on a daily basis and I learned well from her. At the time of her passing she had hundreds and hundreds of cookbooks, hand written recipes and clippings from newspapers and magazines. Fast forward to the present and it’s no surprise where my love of food sprung from.

I feel as though every stage of my life so far has led me to this point of recipe creation. I started my working career in the grocery industry becoming very familiar with food products and baked goods. While working there, photography captured my eye. If I wasn’t on the clock, a camera was in my hand. At that time photographing children with their big beautiful sparkly eyes, was my passion. Never would I have dreamed that would lead me to food photography.

Prior to taking the leap of faith to start The Fed Up Foodie I spent 9 and 1/2 years working as a weight loss counselor. Working so closely with my clients in addition to my own struggles, has given me a profound understanding of the psychology of food and behavior modification.

During the years of working in the weight loss industry, my husband would often tease me that my nose was constantly buried in my smart phone.  I was researching nutrition and health related issues. The knowledge I gained and the passing of my mom, ignited a fire in me. I became passionate about helping others feel confident in their kitchen because I believe with my entire heart and soul that home cooking helps us to live healthier and more vibrant lives. 

This is where The Fed Up Foodie begins. My passion is to support you in not feeling like a fed up foodie.
