Hello and welcome to Becomingness!!
My love of cooking and sharing food and food ideas is in my blood!
I have Italian, Maltese and Egyptian heritage, and a love of preparing food from fresh and whole ingredients and connecting with family and friends over meals has been passed down to me, from many generations of passionate foodies. I share this passion with my children - Giselle & Josh.
So how did Becomingness come about?
After a career in Human Resources (and always with the nagging feeling like something was "missing"), and desperately needing a change, I began studying nutritional medicine when I was pregnant with Giselle.
The biggest reason being because I had battled health issues over the years and I wanted to teach my children about health & wellness.
During my studies, I started to adapt recipes into healthier versions to suit our needs - lots of "family favourite recipes" like butter chicken, caramel slice, and coconut rough.
I knew I had to share what I was learning about food providing "nutritional medicine" to help people's state of health and well-being, and to share the more "healthy versions" of the family friendly recipes I was creating...and "Becomingness" the home of healthy and easy to make recipes that your entire family will enjoy - was birthed in 2014.
