Hello and welcome to my website/blog! My name is Chika and I’ve been told I am one unique soul. I created this site to share my passion for wholesome eating, adventure, creativity, and lifting weights. In the kitchen I enjoy preparing tasty dishes using various spices. Cookbooks and recipes give me inspiration to pair new flavors together producing delicious meals. Check out the RECIPES page for some healthy yummy ideas.
When I’m not cooking, I enjoy spending time with close friends hiking, watching sports (Lakers, Raiders, & Cal Bears), and going to comedy and theater shows. Originally born and raised in Los Angeles currently residing in Oakland, CA. I love to laugh and be silly around friends. I’m lucky to have friends who understand my quirky, sometimes weird personality. It’s important that I can be my true self at all times. This trait has gotten me far in my young 27 years of life.
My personal passions spills over into my professional life. I studied business in college then worked in the Corporate world as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). After years of feeling fatigued, unmotivated, moody, and heavier from gaining weight during those stressful times, I knew it was time to pursue my love of food, nutrition and helping others. I earned my Certificate in Nutrition Consulting from Bauman College located in Berkeley, CA which has allowed me to live out my dreams while improving the health of the world, one person at a time.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
