Our Purpose

FOODSPLAINER is a creative platform and community enabling people to educate and inspire themselves through food. Sure, our focus is on food, but our purpose is to teach you that nothing is out of reach with a little grit and elbow grease. Or maybe bacon grease if that’s more your style.

Human lives are messy and complicated. The only things we need to continue living are:

  • Sleep
  • Food
  • Water

Beyond the literal necessities of life, we rely on the more complicated human needs such as:

  • Companionship
  • Love
  • Touch
  • empathy 

These are the things that keep us sane. But going even deeper, we need the inspiration to help push us outside our comfort zones. Oftentimes, it’s someone else who helps us see the potential in us that we don’t see in ourselves. It’s why we are attracted to and dependent on one another, even if we don’t like to admit it.

The moment you become comfortable is the moment you stop growing. I want FOODSPLAINER to challenge and encourage each listener & reader to do something that intimidates them. To take a risk and try something that gets the butterflies in your stomach flying free. It’s easy to get settled in and let life pass on by, but if self-doubt is holding you back in any way, here’s a news flash: You. Are. Good. Enough

My question for you is: what drives you and how do YOU want to make a difference in this fragile life? 

You don’t need dreams and desires to “change the world” or be rich and famous to make a difference in people’s lives. If you do happen to desire that, then that’s great! Go get it and don’t let anyone stop you in your tracks. But strive for what brings you joy.

On that topic, let’s talk about our misconception of the word “successful.” 

If you are a kindergarten teacher raising a family because that’s what you want in life, then you are successful! 

If you are a dog groomer and pet caretaker because that’s what you want in life, then you are successful!

If you work at a retirement home and care for the needs of your elders because that’s what you want in life, then you are successful!

If you buy and flip houses because that’s what you want in life, then you are successful!

If you start your own business and sell jewelry out of your home because that’s what you want in life, then you are successful!

Are you getting the point? Success is not a dollar amount or a status. Success is what brings you genuine happiness and a feeling of purpose.

It doesn’t matter what you decide to do in life, it matters WHO you are in life. That is how you can make a difference. And that’s how I want to make a difference with FOODSPLAINER being a catalyst for changing the way people learn, get encouraged and strive to be their best selves.

I know what it’s like to feel truly inspired, to feel high on life based on something you saw, read or heard and to feel like you can accomplish anything in that very moment. It’s one of the most empowering feelings we have in life aside from love. I want to give you that feeling. 

I don’t claim to be an all-knowing food expert, but let’s be real, who is? Food is something I have a knack for and a genuine love for. I am excited to get to learn new food things with you and have deep conversations with influential people in the industry. Food brings people together and having a lack of knowledge of basic cooking techniques and ingredients can determine how you raise your own family with the type of food they grow up eating. I am here to help steer you in the right direction with useful knowledge and simple skills in the kitchen like how to season your food or how to make a simple and delicious meal. There will also be more advanced episodes for my chef community out there.

I will have influential guests on the podcast who have successful businesses and can offer insight into the challenges of starting your own company. Being very entrepreneurial-driven myself, I seek out companies, business owners and other respected figures that I believe in. By sharing their stories, it is also my goal to shine a light on important topics in the food industry, the future of our food system and bring exposure to companies and their products that I think we all should be supporting. 

Now let’s get to FOODSPLAININ’!
