My name is Kamila, but feel free to call me Kammie. I am a 20-something year old girl living in the lovely city of Chicago.
Come May 2013 I will have a Bachelors in Psychology and Bachelors in Integrated Marketing Communications (focused on Advertising). During the day, I work at a Social Media Marketing agency as a project manager and strategist. Aside from my day job, I do freelance photography, specializing in conceptual fine art and portraiture, as well as events and parties, and recently food!
For the past 4 years, I have struggled with disordered eating. In February 2012, I was diagnosed with ED-NOS and Panic Disorder. Since then, I have managed to get rid of the panic and lessened my anxiety to a minimum without any help of medications. I continued to lose and gain the same 15 lbs over and over again with the help of various diets, crazy fitness plans, obsessive calorie counting and restrictions, and dieting fads. In March 2013, I had a breakthrough and I decided to give up on chronic dieting and the stress I’ve been putting on my body. I have decided to become an intuitive eater and I have taken the journey to becoming a happy and healthy person, without self-guilt and without dieting. I am embracing life as it is and welcoming self-love and self-acceptance into my life. I want to share my journey with others so hopefully you too will take the journey into living intuitively.
I started baking when I began my blog in March 2012. Since then, my baking skills have definitely grown, although they are not at the expert level just yet. I am also hoping to learn to cook more… We’ll see how that goes. This blog features some guest recipes from my dear Mother as well, so you get a glimpse into healthier twists on traditional Polish dishes and desserts.
The recipes you see here are mostly healthy (but not all). A vast majority of the recipes featured have some kind of healthifying done to it, whether it’s reduced sugar, lower in fat, vegan, or used with better healthful ingredients. I love nutrition, health, and food – and I want to prove to you that living mindfully, healthfully, and deliciously is possible.
