Opera Singer

Hello there!

I am a Real Foodie. What is that, you ask? My favorite definition comes from The Cheeseslave.

A “real foodie” is someone who cooks “traditional” food. We cook stuff from scratch using real ingredients, like raw milk, grass-fed beef, eggs from chickens that run around outdoors, whole grains, sourdough and yogurt starters, mineral-rich sea salt, and natural sweeteners like honey and real maple syrup.

We don’t use modern foods that are either fake, super-refined, or denatured. This includes modern vegetable oils like Crisco and margarine, soy milk, meat from factory farms, pasteurized milk from cows eating corn and soybeans, refined white flour, factory-made sweeteners like HFCS or even refined white sugar, or commercial yeast.

We believe in eating wholesome, nutrient-dense foods that come from nature. So we shop at farmer’s markets or buy direct from the farmer, or we grow food in our own backyards.

I am also really passionate about cultured foods. Find out why it’s important to eat cultured foods here.

Lastly, I’m a diva. Well, I’m a singer. “Diva” can sometimes carry negative connotations in singer-land. Usually it means that someone is a bit of a snob. While I wouldn’t define myself as a snob, I did want to honor the singer in me, and “Cultured Diva” was just too perfect to pass up!

Thanks for reading. I’ll be back with a cultured recipe soon!
