Get to Know Me

Hi! I’m Joanna. The voice behind Whisking Up Flavors. Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I have enjoyed cooking and baking all my life. However, I didn’t realize how much I loved it until 2018, when I decided to start eating Paleo. It was a completely new way of eating that drove me to learn about food and cooking in an entirely different way than I was used to. I had no idea how to cook paleo. I had to read, learn, and experiment a lot in the kitchen. The more I learned, the more I wanted to cook. The more I tasted how delicious food could be and still be healthy, the more I wanted to recreate dishes.

My sister was the first person to encourage me to share my recipes with others. She would ask me to cater her parties, or make her a cake and share it with her friends. Basically, she was spreading the word about my cooking, even before I knew if I was going to do anything with it. From the beginning, I knew I loved it. I was constantly thinking about different foods to make and recreating healthier versions of meals we all know and love.

Throughout the years, I have met many people with diet restrictions and food allergies, even in my own family. I have seen them struggle to find foods that they can eat and truly enjoy. I wanted to help. As I began to see the joy in them when they ate something I made, Whisking Up Flavors was born.

I created this blog as a place to share my recipes with people beyond my immediate circle. Here, I share everything I have learned about eating healthier. From recipes, to cooking tips, ingredients, all the things. You will also see my Venezuelan side come through in some of my recipes. Venezuelan food is some of my favorite. So I try to recreate some dishes where I can into healthier yet still delicious meals.

I hope that you love the recipes and that I’m able to help you in your journey to eating healthier!
