My name is Grisel Gutierrez, but all my family and friends call me Gri. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States 4 years ago. I’m currently working in the travel industry as a PR and Comms Manager, yes travel is one of my other passions.
So how did I become interested in low carb food? Well, it hit me; I was living a lazy and sedentary life that was causing me health issues, so don’t get me wrong I was working full time and, I didn’t want to make any adjustment in my life to be healthier. When you are gaining weight over time or feeling always tired, you don’t realize it until its kind of late (I believe it’s never too late for anything), but what I mean is that you only face reality when you realize how much weight you have gained in a specific period. I knew I was not eating healthy nor exercising, and I knew what to do, but was I committing to it? Not really. It was a long educational journey for me, a lot of cooking sessions, readings, and fail forwards. There were times when I thought I would not be able to adopt a healthy lifestyle, but with dedication and patience, I was able to do it.
I created this blog to help you get started within this journey, so please bear with me as I try to keep it as updated as possible. In the meantime, I will tell you here how to get started.
