Hi, my name is Michelle and thank you for visiting my site!
The Passion-ate started 6 years ago when I needed an outlet for my passion for food. Since then I have deleted all of my posts and started over because I finally know exactly what I am passionate about when it comes to food… plant-based eating.
I am fascinated by the vast variety of whole foods available to us that can improve our health and well-being. There is so much to learn about nutrition and an infinite amount of recipes to be made with everything nature has to offer.
A bit about me! I am originally from Toronto but currently live in New York City with my husband and dog. I’m not vegan nor am I vegetarian but I do love creating and enjoying plant-based recipes.
I spent the past three years working in food styling and recipe development where I shopped, cooked, and baked for food photography and commercials.
More recently, I received my Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. This has helped expand my knowledge of holistic nutrition which in turn has influenced my recipes. I strive to create delicious recipes that help us thrive.
