Five and Spice

Emily Vikre

I focus on whole foods and traditional ingredients. I use lots of vegetables and fruits and plenty of cream and butter! I choose seasonal, local ingredients because of the environmental impact and because that's the way things taste the best.

The reason we wanted to feature Emily was because she cooks REAL food. Nothing processed, very little pre-packaged, no junk. In fact, she doesn’t buy or cook with anything that has more than 5 ingredients on the package. This means that she often relies on fresh, seasonal, and local food like the chard featured in today’s recipe. Even though she has a Masters in Nutrition and is on her way to being a PhD, she believes that we shouldn’t have to think too much about what we’re eating, something that is achievable when we focus on buying, cooking, and eating real food.

Make sure to say hello to Emily on her blog and Twitter.
