Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m a former music scientist and computational linguist who is nowadays a professional author, recipe developer and photographer.
On the side, I have been studying nutrition, different diets and cooking for a few decades. On my journey from a strict raw vegan to a conscious omnivore, I have collected an extensive collection of hundreds of diet books and cookbooks, still relentlessly digging into new studies and old traditions.
After I got seriously ill — having BMI only 12.7 and suffering from agonizing abdominal pain with no doctor being able to help — I started to do research how to get healthy again. After extensive studying I found out that the really healthful food is something completely different what the official quarters let us know.
I healed myself with gluten-free, sugar-free low-carb diet, and I’m nowadays completely healthy and full of energy. After recovering from that emaciated state, I even managed to become pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, who has been remarkably healthy all his life.
Based on my experiences and my studies, I’m developing and sharing simple and healthful recipes with mouthwatering photos here on my blog, hoping to help other people heal themselves and live healthy lives full of energy and happiness.
There is no single diet which suits everyone. Instead, you have to explore what is suitable for you. Everybody is an individual with individual needs. In case you have found that ketogenic low-carb, gluten-free and sugar-free food benefits you, I’m at your service. In case you have an idea which you would like me to develop further, or if you have done something similar yourself, please share your thoughts with me!
P.S. As I’m a native Finn, I also blog in Finnish for www.alakarpisti.com, whenever I have time.
