hi there! i'm celina.

i enjoy sharing yummy, gluten free, plant based creations.  

My first post!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my blog! I am super excited to finally launch this site, as I have been posting my food creations on Instagram for too long now without writing down the recipes. 
So this site is where you can find my yummy creations...and maybe some doodles and various ramblings too.  

To get a more complete rundown of who I am, head over to the 'About Me' section.
In summary, I am an eclectic 20 something year old, lover of aubergines and kombucha, living in the magical city of Los Angeles. At a young age I was diagnosed with CVID, a chronic illness that weakens the immune system, which propelled me to learn about healthy eating/lifestyle habits. Although it was challenging at times for me to navigate through the plethora of processed food in the U.S., (especially with my not so fun food sensitivities to dairy & gluten), I was fortunate enough to have a childhood where my mom taught me the importance of real foods. As I grew older, went to college and had my own kitchen, my love for creating and sharing healthy food only grew stronger.

And thus, 
The Visual Veggie was born! :)

Thanks for reading, and excited to start 2017 off with a bang!
