Hi my name is LaRena! I love cooking, baking, travel hacking, and homeschooling. I have several autoimmune issues that have caused me to revamp my diet. I have done away with grains of all kinds, potatoes (for the time being), and refined sugars. I have had to do research and trial and error recipes to change the way I and my family eat. If I want to eat something I pretty much have to make it from scratch. I have found a way to make tasty and delicious food without grains, refined sugar and in many cases without dairy.
I make a lot of different dairy things from coconut milk as my children have a dairy allergy. Things like coconut buttermilk, coconut sweetened condensed milk etc.
I love to travel and travel hack. That means I try to find the cheapest way to travel, so that I can travel more often. Little tricks like using budget airlines to travel. My favorite is Norwegian Air. Therefore my recipes tend to have international flairs as well as American.
I am currently homeschooling my high schooler. I love history, science, microeconomics and improv. I have a BA in Theater. I have lived in other countries and love to learn about culture, customs, traditions and languages.
