Hi there! I’m Tera. Welcome to my blog, Roots and Radishes, where I get to share healthy food with you. I started blogging because it encompasses many things I love to do:
I’m also into piano, singing vocal jazz, tennis, anything active and/or outdoors, gardening, anything artsy, spending time with family and friends, philosophizing, and all things Spanish. I recently graduated with a double major in Spanish and Philosophy, and right now I’m just hanging out, working, trying to find my purpose in life… you know, no big deal, the usual. Some my life goals are to find and spread joy, always express gratitude, and to keep learning.
One thing you’ll find on my blog is that I love sharing recipes with stories. That’s because I love my roots and where I came from, and many of my recipes are inspired by family recipes that I grew up with. Bottom line, I love cooking recipes that reflect how meals and bits of life go hand in hand, and I expect to share some memories and musings with you along the way.
Partly catchy, and partly symbolic. I like to think it’s catchy with “Roots and…” before it, but I also mean it as a symbol of health, whole and natural foods, vegetables, unprocessed ingredients, what have you. I love eating healthfully, and I could talk about ways to enjoy a healthy lifestyle all day. Eating healthfully shouldn’t mean you have to give up time, effort, or flavor…it shouldn’t mean sacrifice at all (not even sweet treats–those are necessary!).
With that, take a look around, make yourself at home. Grab a friend, and make something good!
