Some words about SUMMER'S BLOG

I love peanut butter, avocado and oatmeal. Not together of course, but nearly any recipe that calls for these ingredients I'll probably enjoy. I have the misfortune of living with some food sensitivities but the extreme fortune of knowing what those sensitivities are - gluten (only mild, thank goodness), nightshades, lactose, and refined sugar. I'm not a formally trained chef, but I love cooking (and eating!) delicious, guilt-free food. I'm a fitness model, certified nutrition coach, trainer and an IFBB pro bikini athlete... and I eat 6 times a day. When I'm not in the kitchen preparing something extraordinary, I'm - in the gym, rushing off to an audition, at a photo shoot, studying nutrition, or planning a vacation. Hope you enjoy my site! For nutrition consultations or more information on training, contact me at summerwhitefitness@gmail.com

How is it 90 degrees in Los Angeles again? I thought fall had started and the heat was behind us.  I’ve been ready to break out my boots and wool coats for a minute, as I’ve missed the winter season

Labor day has become my second favorite holiday, right after Thanksgiving.  To me, it marks one of the last days of summer party time, and the beginning of fall/winter family vacay celebrations. It is not as high energy as Memorial

I’ve burned my hands countless times the past few months. I wonder if it’s because I’m a relatively new chef.  Well, I’ve cooked my food for years, but I’ve never cooked with a purpose (other than getting my calories in),
