Welcome to the Mediterranean!

Welcome to Happy Mediterranean life! I’m happy to have you here.

How did this site come to be? I started Happy Mediterranean Life in March 2020. That’s right. I started this site during the pandemic.

Like many of you, I was at home. I was living alone in a small apartment. I was in the process of getting Italian citizenship, so I spent a lot of time exploring my Italian roots.

I was also missing life in Spain. I spent a few months in Carmona (Sevilla) and I had planned to move to Galicia. Actually, I was hellbent on making it happen.

I wanted to get more creative in the kitchen. I was also starting to learn about food photography.

This site started as a creative outlet at the beginning of the pandemic. What it evolved into was a way to help people live healthier lives with more vitality through the Mediterranean Diet.

I’ve been a certified fitness and nutrition coach since 2016. I started my own business as an online fitness and nutrition coach with Invincible Women Fitness Academy.

I didn’t expect much when I started this site. It turned out that the first few articles were a success.

I got a lot of traffic and questions about health, fitness, and the Mediterranean Diet. That’s why I now offer fitness and nutrition coaching programs here.

I want to help people live healthier and enjoy food. I know that it’s possible. I see it and live it every day.

I’ve since been recognized as an Italian citizen and I now live in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. It’s a beautiful city full of vibrancy and wonder. There’s also a lot of great food here!

Reach out to say hello! I’d love to hear from you.

Buen Provecho!
