Hi, I’m Jana. Cookbook author, recipe developer, food photographer, wine enthusiast and healthy foodie! I recreate traditional recipes to make them plant-based, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, bursting with nutrients and, of course, delicious! I also develop original recipes in the same vein.
My interest in health and wellness dates back as early as my teen years, and I have trained both informally and formally in Nutrition. I am a graduate of Cornell University’s T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies certificate program in Plant-Based Nutrition.
My father was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes when I was young. After a failed kidney transplant, he passed away in his fifties. Even then, there was a link established between dietary modifications and the progression of this disease. But healthy recipes that tasted delicious were scarce.
My greatest inspiration for creating these recipes is to use a loss for good. Making food that is life-promoting and nourishing, yet doesn’t make you feel like you’re sacrificing by abstaining from palate-pleasing flavors. I create these recipes to provide people that are battling preventable diseases, or want to be a healthier version of themselves, alternatives to the life-robbing foods. Ones that don’t require isolation at the dinner table. Dishes that can be shared and enjoyed by all!
The good news is that with the availability of more and more information I was able to identify better, nutritious ingredients and means of cooking. The result being healthier dishes for overall health and wellness, not to mention detoxification, weight loss and fitness. This ultimately led to the birth of Nutritionicity!
My hope is that no matter where you are in your personal quest for nutrition, health and wellness, Nutritionicity will provide you with recipes and information that are helpful, simplifying what can often seem complicated through videos and process photos.
Whether you’re searching for a delicious healthy recipe, a means for discovering a nutritious product, or hoping to expand your knowledge of nutrition in new ways, you will find it here. You can eat nutritiously and still be a foodie!
All of my recipes follow the following four objectives:
- Plant-based/Vegan. You can get more nutritional value from plant-based food than you can from animal products. So why put your body through all of the health ramifications that come with meat and dairy?
- Gluten-free. I have gluten sensitivity, and once I removed gluten from my diet, I started feeling undeniably better after about 30 days.
- Refined Sugar-free. There are so many unrefined/natural sweeteners available in today’s marketplace. Some of my personal favorites are coconut sugar, coconut nectar (neither tastes like coconut, by the way), and maple syrup.
- Nutritiously-minded. If you can pack in the vitamins, minerals, omega-3s, and/or any other vital nutrients and make it just as delicious, why not do it? You do not have to sacrifice taste and texture to have a nutritious dish.
