About Me

Welcome to Adventures in the Kitchen!

My name is Lauren and I am a 21-year-old student working towards living a healthier lifestyle. I am studying human nutrition and I have just entered my final year of university.

Food hasn’t always interested me, in fact, I used to be quite the picky eater. When I was younger, I absolutely refused to eat any vegetables (with an exception of corn and sometimes carrots), especially if they were green vegetables. This really made it difficult for my parents to make meals, because I hated soup, pasta with tomato sauce or anything with a speck of green in it.

It wasn’t until the twelfth grade that I became really passionate about nutrition. Trying to figure out what I wanted to do after graduation and which type of career I wanted to pursue was a daunting task, because there was no career I could think of that really interested me.  I decided to take a course about food and nutrition as an elective and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Over the past four years, I have really changed the way that I eat. Learning about nutrition in school and reading food blogs has broadened the way that I think about food and the role that food has in my life. During this time, I have opened my mind to all different kinds of foods and I have become adventurous in the kitchen.
