My name is Kirstin. I am a Registered Associate Nutritionist (AfN) that has a passion for wholesome, nourishing food and have an interest in learning more about how what we eat can impact our long-term health and wellbeing. More recently, I've become more interested in not only how the nutrients in our foods can impact our health, but also how our relationship with food can impact our overall wellbeing.
Since being launched in August 2016, Taste & See has become a space where I have been able to share knowledge as I learn more about nutrition, tasty recipes centered around fresh, seasonal food, as well as resources that can guide each reader in their journey towards living a healthier & happier life. It has been quite the journey to where I am today, but in 2018 I completed my MSc Human Nutrition at the University of Surrey and was lucky enough to win a Health Bloggers Community Award for Best Nutrition and Science Blog!
I love experimenting with new ingredients, and hope to inspire home-cooks of all skill levels to get into the kitchen and prepare food from scratch by sharing simple, affordable, and nutritious recipes. I am not a huge fan of spending all my cash on overpriced ingredients, and most of my recipes use affordable foods that you’ll easily find at the grocery store. Most of my cooking inspiration comes from a large collection of cookbooks and many inspiring blogs, all of which I have listed in the Resources tab above for you to read through.
