Hi, it’s nice to meet you!
My name is Andi. I’m a food blogger at Andianne.com where I create recipes and products to help you simplify your routines and learn how to meal plan.
But I’m also a mama to a five year old who makes life extra busy (but I love it). I’m a total introvert who loves sipping tea, beach walks, thrifting, and library visits.
And if I’m being totally honest I’ll tell you that majority of my adult life, I had no idea how to cook! It wasn’t a skill that was passed down to me from my mom, nor was it something that I had a natural instinct for. In fact, I thought I was always just going to be a “bad cook” burning meals and feeling insecure in the kitchen.
Everything I ate came from a package – I loved frozen meals, quick fix boxed dinners, and fast food.
Not surprisingly at all, this type of eating started to take a toll on my health and my stress level. I felt groggy, had brain fog, my digestive system was totally out of whack, and I hated having to go in the kitchen every day and open up the fridge to figure out what to cook – I was very uninspired.
I knew something had to give, and that I wanted to experience food differently. It wasn’t until shortly after my daughter was born that I decided to make that change happen not just for me, but also for her. I didn’t want her to grow up on boxed meals, and I wanted to be the kind of mom who knew her way around the kitchen and how to make a great home cooked meal.
It was at this point that I enrolled in the School of Integrative Nutrition based in New York to become a certified health coach. I took the online program so I was able to study at night while my baby was sleeping. After building a true foundation for healthy meals and home cooking, I started to learn how to simplify our own meals and found easier ways to save time in the kitchen.
I started my blog Andianne.com in 2018 as a result of everything I had learned.
