MY JOURNEY DISCOVERING FOOD FOR A HEALTHY LIFE 

I am Doro (short for Dorothea) and I’m a Nutritional Therapy consultant, but first and foremost a foodie. I love food, I love to prepare food, but most of all I love to eat and share with others. However, though I am a food snob so my eats need to be healthy AND tasty.

I was born and raised in Germany as the youngest of seven, we grew up with a great appreciation for nature. That love for nature translated into a passion for food and cooking with quality ingredients and that is still what we do when we get together.

I am currently living in the US, in Nyack, NY with my two sons. When my kids were little cooking every day became a challenge so I started buying cookbooks and experimented. Cooking became my time to relax and create.

My own health journey was a long road. My first son was born with a severe birth defect. He was in and out of the hospital for the first 13 years of his life, and so was I. I was in a constant state of stress and with life circumstances which contributed to even more; the death of my father and a year later the death of my brother, having a second child and trying to hold everything together.

Soon after that, I became sick. Mold exposure triggered it all, then a chronic Lyme diagnosis came on top. As a result I started to research which led me to using FOOD AS MEDICINE. When I changed my diet my energy began shifting. I had more energy, my mood lifted and I had a greater zest for life.

Ever since, I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant with a passion for how food can be medicine. You might be surprised how small changes can yield huge results.

It is all about nourishing oneself and your loved ones. Nourishment doesn’t stop with food. It is much bigger than that. Food is the perfect starting point and something we all can enjoy, and from there the journey will lead one to having a better and deeper connection with oneself and one’s body. I hope this site will inspire you to cook, experiment, learn about nutrition, get healthier and spread the joy of food!!
