About Me

Welcome to Love&Grub and thank you for stopping by. My name is Eva and I am a lover of all things healthy, delicious and easy. 

I started this blog at the beginning of 2014, but never thought it would become such a happy part of my life. I have grown to completely love learning to cook and experiment with new, different flavors and ingredients. I especially love taking comfort foods and finding healthy alternatives that cut the bad and add the good.

I also believe I have figured out how loving what you eat can quiet all those voices in your head that keep you from eating healthily and happily.

The idea developed after I posted a few photos on Instagram of various foods that I have prepared…and also one photo of pomegranates in the shape of a Christmas tree. I captioned the photos with “love and…” and followed it with the name of the food.  Why the word love, you ask?

Well in the last year or two, I have fallen back in love with food after years and years of dieting, restricting, self-loathing and having a truly unhealthy relationship with things that taste oh so good. I’m also currently getting a Master's degree in nutrition and decided to document my journey to becoming a Registered Dietitian. 

In addition to my love for food, this last year I have fallen in love with my wonderful boyfriend, which has given me a whole new perspective on life and love. So with this love of food and love of love, here I am to give you a new perspective on how important love is when it comes to your mind and body.

I hope you enjoy my recipes, thoughts and rambles as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. Please feel free to leave me any feedback or questions! 

Lots of LOVE,
