I’m Jessica. I live in big city Chicago, but I was born and raised in a small farm town in Ohio. I’m a writer, a food-lover, a beer-drinker, a dog-owner, and I believe the best and most affordable healthcare begins in the kitchen. I’ve been experimenting with a whole foods, plant-based diet since May of 2012, and I’ve spent every day since adapting a menu to fit that new lifestyle. It’s tastier than you might think! Learn with me as I explore healthy options on a budget with room for dessert!
Oh, and as for “The Hungry Tortoise”… the blog’s name stems from two notions:
- The love of good food
- The idea that a slow and steady approach wins most of life’s races
Transitioning into a healthier lifestyle isn’t something that happens overnight. It takes time, and a lot of trial and error before finding out what works best. Everyone is different. It’s not about being perfect. It’s about being consistent. Spectacular results are sure to follow!
