About me

Welcome to my Blog!

This blog is about a healthy and tasty way to eat, my travels around the world and more.

My name is Heidi and I lived most of my life in Italy and some time/years in Germany, Greece, Turkey, Spain and Ireland. I feel Italian despite I have another nationality on the passport.

It has been a while that I have gone through (for me) very tough times and afterwards I realized I was in a really bad condition, physically and especially mentally. So I started to change things in my life. One of the most important ones was my diet. And that was a big deal for me. I stopped from one day to another to eat sugar and (bad) carbs. I fasted for 3 weeks and then I started an oil-protein-diet. Soon I felt much better, physically and in my moods. So I started with all kinds of natural ways like homeopathy and Brandon Bays. I came across paleo, green smoothies and even raw food.

Now I am paleo-vegetarian in a way and try to figure out how to do all the yummy food without bad carbs. And I like to share my food experiences with you. Like my joy for photography, traveling around and writing.

Originally I am a skilled tourist guide and worked in Ischia/Italy and Mallorca/Spain. I quit my job in 2002, did small translating jobs for a few years while learning about computer and starting to write for webmasters becoming a skilled content manager. And to discover my love for writing.

My languages are Italian, English, German and Spanish.

I hope you like my blog and enjoy reading, maybe find something new or perhaps be inspired to change things in your life.

    So nice to “meet” you Heidi! We are quite similar, except for the food part! I have a terrible sweet tooth and am always fighting with it! 😉 I look forward to following along! CC

    Very nice story, Heidi! I think we have much in common, but I find many difficulties to change completely the daily nutrition scheme, since I live with my 15 years old boy. Next time you are coming to Italy and would like to visit a very special and still unknown area – Montefeltro- I would be really pleased to meet you and be your personal guide in this area! Get in touch?????☕️☕️

      Thank you a lot Anna! I am currently back to Italy, Mombaroccio. Will keep you in mind, I’d loved to know your place! And I would liked to talk to you about my nutrition as well. Very easy and very inspiring! See you soon!

    I sat next to you on the plane from Ireland to Sacramento. You were headed to San Diego to spend some time with your boyfriend. You were lovely to sit next to and share conversation. I hope your time in California is going well…and I hope I will meet up with you again….perhaps in San Diego were my high school friend now lives.

      Hi Joanne, great you found me here! Yes, it was a pleasure to sit together and have the time flying chatting together. My time here is running out again but will be back in fall. Hope to see you again, in San Diego would be great! Hugs…
