Hi! I’m Megan, number two of the four Curry girl sisters. I have been living a gluten-free lifestyle for 8 years since my senior year in high school. Up until then, I had struggled to find the right diet for me. I am extremely passionate about food and its direct connection to our health. I am living proof that food cures! I transformed from a malnourished, constantly sick, congested being into a nourished, healthy, satisfied one, all thanks to the food I fuel my body with.
I graduated in 2011 from University of Colorado, Boulder with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. and in 2012 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Holistic Health Coach.
I keep busy by educating parents in their kitchen, cooking for families, teaching nutrition education to elementary school students for GrowingGreat , as well as teaching cooking classes with Pegs to busy parents. I love blogging about my daily activities, practicing yoga, riding my bike on the strand in Manhattan Beach, walking my dog, Shanti, swimming, hiking, running, and doing anything outdoors.
I am so blessed with my amazing family and look forward to sharing with all of you our foodie adventures that keep us happy, healthy, and hanging around our kitchen table.
I am mother to four active daughters: Alex – 26, Megan – 24, Annie – 21, and Sam – 20, and wife of 34 years to Tim, my high school sweetheart. I am a passionate healthy-food crusader who loves seasonal, fresh, local food, farmers markets, cooking, sharing meals with family and friends, and just hanging out in our kitchen. I’m also an avid nature lover, photographer, and Yogi. I love to bike and stroll along the beach, and hike and sit in the stillness of the woods along a river. Playing outside, as well as taking quiet times, rejuvenates my soul.
I truly believe with my heart that food IS love! What better way to say “I LOVE YOU” than to serve up a delicious meal made from the heart. The kitchen IS the heart of our home and all of us Curry girls wish to share a piece of our home with you! Megan and I created Curry Girls Kitchen for families who will be inspired to prepare our healthy, delicious meals. Our site shares with you the past 25 years of my cooking classes and our family’s experiences in the kitchen.
Food healed our entire family from a severe autoimmune disorder. Diagnosed with gluten intolerance, each of our varying symptoms disappeared. We went from chronic suffering to living a symptom- and pain-free life in three short months. No pills or special treatments—we simply changed the foods we ate.
I believe wholeheartedly that we can prevent most diseases today by changing our eating habits. Having the discipline to change one’s habits is not always easy. People are curious about cooking with high quality whole foods, but many are afraid of both the cost and time it takes to cook from scratch at home. We aim to dispel the myth that it takes more time and money to eat healthy.
Our goal is to help you embrace the beauty and delight of food and its many facets. You are about to see how cooking can be a positively wonderful experience. And you will also discover how food has the power to unite families and heal bodies. What better place to nourish your family and maintain healthy bodies and relationships than at your family’s dinner table. Life IS Delicious!
