For most of her life, Camie Hauck has been a pretty health conscious person, usually preferring the healthier options like fruit, seafood and whole grains over sweets and processed foods. She grew up cooking with her mother and watching her grandmother, which is where a lot of influence came from. (Camie is holding her grandmother’s cookbook in this picture).
Food has always been the highlight of Camie’s life and she feels most at home and relaxed when she’s in the kitchen. As such, she decided that she wanted to pursue culinary school and headed there right out of high school. Although she was a great home cook, she wanted to further hone her skills as a professional chef and become classically trained.
For Camie, paleo started as a bit of a health experiment. Despite always being fit and petite, she has experienced severe allergies and a number of ‘medical mysteries’ that doctors can’t seem to get to the bottom of. For her, it was time to take matters into her own hands. Although she is still searching for answers, when following a paleo lifestyle, Camie feels at her best.
She believes that healthy food doesn’t need to be boring. The more you experiment, play around with flavours, and get creative, the better the outcome. With food, the possibilities are endless. Curious to try out one of Camie’s recipes? Try her Stuffed Avocados with crunchy pork rind crumbs!
