About Kristen Tola Hettich, Founder/ Stylist

Hi! My name is Kristen Hettich, born and raised on the East Coast (South Florida and Cape Cod). I moved out to Los Angeles six years ago to pursue a career in the fashion industry. As I was working as a Visual Merchandiser and Fashion Stylist, I always felt something was missing. With no desire to work with food, I always found myself cooking in my kitchen and playing with different ingredients. Maybe that's because I was raised by an executive chef and a homemaker. 

A big part of my life is health and fitness. These are both primary parts of my everyday life. I exercise daily between weight training, running and anything else to break a sweat. Along with exercising regularly to stay healthy, eating healthy is just as or is an even more important part in my life. I have experimented with eating raw vegan, vegan and vegetarian diets. I enjoyed them all but I found that limiting myself to certain diets was not right for me and that eating a healthy balanced diet was best.

I knew I wanted to help people in some way and I hope to achieve that through this blog. I have found something I am very passionate about and want to share my ideas for healthy recipes, restaurant options and other healthy avenues no matter what diet you follow! Whether you are Paleo, Vegan, Pescetarian or just plain like to eat good healthy food, there is something here for everyone!
