Welcome to LaVegetariana.com! Where food is love

I created this website as a means to connect with people passionate about preparing healthy, vegetarian dishes, as well as those wanting to stay healthy, happy and active, and with the desire to respect the earth through sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices.

I am a certified natural foods chef (trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC) and journalist with a love for both cooking and writing. I have worked at various media organizations, restaurants and businesses in Philadelphia, New York and California where I’ve established the abilities to work with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free clients, build social media sites, work with business start-ups, manage staffs, create menus and recipes, host consultations, and much, much more!

I have spent years learning how to navigate living a traditional Italian life and even traveling throughout Italy enjoying the cuisine. It’s been a fun journey and I’m happy to share it with all of you as LaVegetariana, the Italian Vegetarian.

No matter if you are a vegetarian, an Italian food lover, a healthy eater or not, I think we can all agree that as humans, we need to nourish ourselves through the act of eating. Growing up in an Italian family, I’ve learned that food is a powerful thing. It can affect you inside and out, physically and emotionally and it’s up to the individual to create as healthy as a relationship with food as possible. Once that relationship is established, you’ll begin to realize, as I did, that Where there is food, there is love.

Sharing my experiences in the culinary, health and media industries is a huge part of what I do to connect to others, so if you have questions, feel free to contact me by e-mail at laveg2@gmail.com or continue reading about me by clicking on the ABOUT ME page above.

Buon appetito!
