My name is Lydia Castro and I’m 32 years old. My lifestyle has been a wonderful process and I’m enjoying my journey. I grew up in a typical Latino household where we ate a lot of fried food and double starches. It took a lot of research and hard work but I’m getting on the right track. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and American Bulldog. My husband and I lead busy lives and hectic schedules. However, I always make it a point to make healthy choices. I love yoga, walks by the pier, exercising, cooking and finding new healthy recipes. I’m a dork in the kitchen and love to find new fun gadgets to cook with. From food processors to slicers and hand blenders, I hope you enjoy the site and my insight on food, gadgets, and healthy recipes.
