Hi, I’m Laura
Known here as Foodology Geek.
I’d like to introduce myself and give you a glimpse into my life and how I got started on this blogging – food love journey.
I’m a ceritfied science geek who loves to cook delicious food and take photos everywhere I go. In college I majored in Physiology and Neuroscience, and have a graduate degree in Forensics. For the past 16 years I have worked as a full-time as a Forensic Scientist. I spent many years woking as a DNA analyst in a Crime Lab before I took my current position as a Forensics Specialist for a local Police Department. I specialize in Cold Case Homicide Investigation and Digital Forensics. It’s kind of like CSI with out the high heels. I’m a mom and a wife and then after hours I am an amateur athlete and love to lift heavy things and then put them back down again. Currently I am studying to get my Level 2 Certification in Sports Nutrition.
In addition to all of this I started this blog to share my love of cooking healthy, real food. I can show you how easy it can be to cook healthy meals at home and have real sustainable nutrition that won’t leave you tethered to the kitchen 7 nights a week. I want to change your mind about buying processed foods and inspire you to nourish your body with food is super simple and healthy.
Balance can be hard when you work full time, have kids, need to work out and get all that other domestic stuff done. This year my goal is to provide you with healthy easy recipes and meal planning resources that can help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying family and friends. As a busy working mom, I know how hard that can be. It’s daunting some days and Pizza Hut is on speed dial.
I want you to have a kick ass mindset and focus your energy on growing stronger, not smaller. I want you to love the body you are in and nourish it like you give a f@#% I want you to get a little bit better every day and be fierce in this life. You only have one chance to make it count on this planet.
I hope you will stick with me on the journey and we can both grow and learn to be better in 2017!
Getting Stronger Everyday!
