Hi there! My name is Shannon and I’m an agricultural economics graduate student. I live on the beautiful Central Coast of California, where fresh, healthy foods are always abundant. My passion for wellness and food comes from my journey with a chronic illness called Interstitial Cystitis. This battle has taught me so much about my body and how it can communicate its needs. I’m still learning to listen to and understand what my body is trying to say and treat it with the utmost love and respect. This can be pretty challenging when it doesn’t always seem to do the same back. However, I’m finding that it’s one of the most important factors of a healthy life. With new information coming out every day about how to better treat our bodies, this wellness journey truly is constantly evolving.
The purpose of this blog is to not only share healthy, nourishing, and tasty recipes, but also the thoughts and experiences my wellness journey has given me.
In addition to food and wellness, I am incredibly passionate about animals. My dog, Bailey, is the best companion I could have ever asked for. Prancer, my horse, has been my rock since high school and I don’t know what I’d do without him. When I’m not working on school working, in the kitchen, or dealing with an IC flare, you can find me playing or hiking with Bailey, riding Prancer, or some combination of the two.
If you have any questions about me or any of my posts, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email! Thank you and enjoy Simply Shannonagins!
