the full story
Hi, I'm Nikki
Cooking and taking care of people is my love language,
WHAT I DO: #1 I’m a MOM. And as for career, I wear many hats. I’m a Private Chef, cookbook author, and wellness guide. I can pretty much get into anything that involves food, writing about food, eating it, traveling to cool places to get it, yoga in between it and other stuff to keep me and the fam healthy.
MY FOOD PHILOSOPHY: I practice intuitive eating.. I listen to my body and what it may need. I try to eat 60/40 Plant Based. Plants are medicine! But protein is essential. I LOVE to grill- some of my favs are: Wild Caught Salmon, Lamb Chops and a Grass fed rib eye. I always strive to consume humane and sustainably sourced products. I truly believe we can thrive on plants, they are an impeccable life source, I believe in plants as medicine, and feel anything rooted in the earth brings us closer to what we inherently are. BUT I do love a solid protein dish.
I'M A WARRIOR: I'm a solo parent after escaping an abusive situation. I now raise my daughter alone. I am her sole provider and safe place. She is my everything. Ive been a life long sufferer or anxiety, OCD and panic which I've helped immensely by mindset shifts, microdosing and plant medicine. I battled BII ( breast implant illness) On most days, I thought I was dying. I explanted in 22' and haven't looked back. I still have residual detoxing and inflammation that I work on daily to balance.
RANDOM FACTS : I am a born and raised Cali Girl, I currently reside in Los Angeles with my little bestie Bella and our plant garden. I love supporting women and fostering loving community through good meals, great wine and fu*cking amazing souls at the table.
THESE ARE A FEW OF
my favorite things
