My first career goal in life was to become a chef. Driven by the passion for cooking and really loving the grind of working in restaurant kitchens and the underground life of being a chef was my life in my late teens, early 20’s. My crew believed we were Rock-star’s and often partied every night after a busy shift to unwind. The hours were long, stressful, the pay and benefits were enough to get by. Living my life like this eventually took a toll on me mentally and physically to a point where I became miserable. It came to a point where I would be driving in to work hoping I would get in a car accident just so I wouldn’t have to go in another day. After realizing I couldn’t live my life like that, I sought out a more structured, corporate job with a set schedule, better benefits and wage. Being another drone in the work-force isn’t as sexy or respected as being a chef is, but my mental and physical well-being got much better. I never completely lost my passion for food, cooking and going restaurants, so that is what this blog is about. It is also about the things I like to do to be active, healthy and mindful. I do my best trying to live a life surrounded by positivity and adventure and I enjoy sharing what I learn a long the way.
