Hi! My name is Celeste Cardoz, I am an undergraduate Nutritional Science student at UBC, and as an active student with a busy schedule I enjoy being challenged with finding creative, quick, and nutritious recipes to fuel my day. I enjoy simple recipes that showcase fresh ingredients, but also love to use spices to create layers of flavour; and I take lots of inspiration from my Indian background. I grew up in the kitchen, where I learned from my father who was a chef himself; I enjoy my time in the kitchen and find it quite therapeutic. That being said, with school, work, training and so on, I focus on recipes that support an active lifestyle but don’t require lots of preparation.
