Who is Heidi?
I am the main author of Fiberfoodfactory, one who creates recipes and photographs the food. I also write health articles and informative articles about food and nutrition.
I am a health coach, not a registered dietitian. I love to read about nutrition, take different courses, and read about nutrition studies.
I live in the North, Finland, with my husband and our lovely dog Nelli. We speak both Finnish and Swedish. You might find some recipes inspired by my culture.
My food journey
I have always been interested in cooking and food. Even as a child, I sat for hours building cakes from sand and decorating them with flowers.
My mother inspired me to wander around in the forest and find edible things there. She taught me to pick berries, what mushrooms to pick and eat, the art of conserving jams, how to make your own tea and brews, how to cook syrups for cough, and how to find natural remedies from the forest. We have such lovely nature in Finland that inspires us to eat what nature gives us.
My whole life, I ate what Finns usually eat. This means meat at every meal, eggs, dairy products, and a lot of bread, potatoes, and pasta. I was skinny, so I did not think about food and what was unhealthy so much.
Well, years went on, and the weight started to increase. I got interested in a plant-based diet when finding solutions for my own health issues. I think the first introduction was the documentary What The Health on Netflix. I completely changed my way of eating, and in a couple of weeks, I felt much better, did not need to sleep after work, and even had the energy to go for a walk.
This inspired me to start studying more about nutrition and taking nutrition courses. Now I want to share what I learned with you.
