Q + A with Stephanie Fazio, Culinary Nutrition Expert
Having known the Fazio family for many years we have come to know Stephanie’s healthy eating habits and recommendations when it comes to a healthy living lifestyle. Our first experience was the annual Eastbourne street sale where she hosted a bake sale with 100 % of the proceeds going to a local charity. The Energy Balls were a hit and had everyone talking about them. From there, we ordered her monthly meal plan and often use her recipes to make unique clean meals that make you feel full and not craving for more. Her passion has inspired us and we look forward to future recipes and classes!
Q. What drives your passion for healthy eating and making real food a part of your family’s daily life?
A. I grew up eating very unhealthy foods. I recognize that kids (and adults!) need healthy food to be happy and feel energetic. When we eat healthfully, we are less likely to get sick and bonus, we feel better too! We deserve better!!.
Q. How are you helping others achieve their goals?
A. I educate people about what real food is and the benefits to their overall health. I show people how to make real food, design simple and custom meal plans, offer kitchen consultations as well as offer private cooking classes. Last but not least, I teach how to be better prepared in the kitchen.
Q. How long have you lived in Mimico? What do you love about it?
A. 10 years! Mimico reminds me of my hometown. I love that it doesn’t have that pretentious feeling and I love living by the water!
