I am foodie on a mission to share my passion for healthy eating and nutrition education. Traveling Recipes is a way for me to connect with my community, clients and friends to celebrate real, health promoting, disease-reversing and mouth-watering meals.
I have become increasingly aware of some pretty serious statistics and issues facing American food culture; childhood & adult obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other degenerative diseases. These issues have touched my students, clients and my family members. I left teaching in the public school system and am now on a path to change the way America is eating.
I have always loved food — the taste, the smell, the colors, the way it makes me feel when I cook it up and eat it. But as I’ve gotten to travel and live in different countries and cultures, I’ve gained a greater appreciation, a deeper respect and a serious passion for the role that food plays in our lives. I feel such joy when I cook, and I want to share what I know to help others have a better quality of life.
So… I invite you to come along this food-loving-journey with me. This blog is about where food, fun and education connect. Any questions, comments, support, tips or needs you might have, please feel free to bother me. Check out my services page if your are interested in learning more.
I love what you do. The whole idea:) it is very inspiring. I would love to do something like that here in southern Illinois. This is kind of an eye opener to me and defiantly makes me want to go with my gut and just do it:) Thanks:)
Thank you sooo much Andrea! Love and believe in what you do and great things will happen. Go with your gut and reach out to me for any help or questions along the way. Be well!

As someone who has lost a leg, undergone a bypass, and can no longer drive because od double vision, etc., all because of diabetes, a condition brought about by former poor dietary habits, I strongly support what Andi Jo is doing. I have eaten many dishes she has prepared for me at Whole Foods, excellent without exception. Andi Jo practices what she preaches, and I now so wish I had eaten 40 years ago what I eat now! /s/ Paul Dyba
