Hello and welcome to The True Spoon, a wellness lifestyle blog chronicling my plant based food, skincare, and fitness experiments from my perspective as both a registered nurse and total health nut.
My name is Celeste and I reside in sunny Los Angeles California. I’ve been a obsessed with food my entire life, yummy snacks have attracted me to the kitchen ever since I could walk. My grandfather “tutupa” was a true foodie, his passion for cuisine ignited my own infatuation with the culinary world. I was born in Hawaii in the late 80’s when super food smoothies and health food markets were all the rage. As a shoeless beach kid I often snacked on mangos and avocados freshly picked from neighborhood trees. Fitness has been a part of my life pretty much since the womb. I remember sitting in a baby seat on the back of my moms bike and holding on to a boogie board leashed to my moms ankle as she swam meters in the open ocean. Both of my parents are total workout junkies, I feel so lucky to be raised in an environment where physical movement was a daily activity. Moving to Oregon in my early childhood greatly influenced my cooking style, I will always have a soft spot for hazelnuts and other unique northwest ingredients.
In 2009 I attended nursing school and learned the benefits of a healthy lifestyle from a scientific perspective, cementing my commitment to working out and eating green.
The True Spoon is my outlet to share original recipes, reviews of my favorite restaurants, handpicked wellness products, green beauty products and my foodie travels. My hope is that The True Spoon will be a place where you are inspired to make fun food with trusted ingredients. I want to help demystify the challenges of eating well, staying active, and taking care of your skin. Living a healthy lifestyle can be simple and fun no matter where you are!
Be well and be true, Celeste Wilson, RN, BSN
