Born in Russia and travelling Europe throughout her childhood, Olga Miller has always had a love for ethnic cuisines. Now stationed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with her husband, Olga finds herself wandering through grocery stores and farmers market looking to recreate the foods she grew up on.
Despite having an interest in food since a young age, it wasn’t until the birth of her daughter that nutrition became a key piece of her life. Not only did she have herself and her husband to feed, but proper nutrition and healthy food was critical to her daughter’s growth.
Aside from being a full-time mom, Olga also runs her own blog, Olga’s Originals, where she aims to share her love for food. The kitchen is her favourite place to hangout. To her, food is fun, food is family, and food is memories.
In 2016, things came to a halt when Olga was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis after suffering with several puzzling health issues on and off for over half a decade. She abided by the doctor’s traditional treatment of thyroid issues to manage her symptoms, but to no avail, it didn’t solve the problem. In 2017, Olga checked herself into a clinic that specializes in treating chronic conditions through dietary and lifestyle changes, and within a few short months of following something similar to paleo, she started to feel better.
For the last two and a half years, Olga has continued to improve and is feeling healthier, stronger, and more beautiful than ever. She avoids grains, dairy, corn, soy, legumes, refined sugar, industrial seed oils, and starchy vegetables and has tweaked her recipes to her eating style. While things can still be a challenge for her and improvisation is needed at times, as long as she has her health, the rest she can manage.
