My name is Tram Le, a Registered Dietitian and true foodie who is originally from California, lived in Hawaii for a couple of years, and now currently located in Houston, Texas! I am not a chef, but I learned how to cook through years of watching my mom and other women in my family whip up meals that will remain in my memory for as long as I live. Because of them, my passion for good food – real food – was born.
I believe in eating more real food that grows from the earth, like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, rather than pre-packaged meals-in-a-box. I’m a proponent of slow food, farm to table, sustainable farming practices, all that good stuff. I love dark chocolate and pistachio-flavored French macarons. I have always believed that the time and effort you spend in making food for others is a labor of love, so in my blog I hope to show you how to make your favorite foods healthier for you and the people you care for.
My philosophy on food and keeping a balance of mind, body, and spirit is simple: nurture your body, nurture your soul.
For three years, I have worked on providing recipes for an entertaining book, entitled Inspired Celebrations, written by Ngoc Nguyen Lay and photography by Caroline Tran. It can be found here as well as Amazon, and the story behind the book is here:
Bachelor of Arts in Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine
