Hi, my name Jose and I created Veggie Tips. I am 44 years old and I live in the beautiful city of Toronto Canada. I am married and have 4 wonderful girls. In my younger days I was a fitness nut. I studied Fitness and Lifestyle management at George Brown College and have my CFA (Certified Fitness Appraiser) certificate. I was a personal trainer and even taught aerobic classes when I was in college.
As I reached my 40’s I noticed that my lifestyle had taken a turn for the worse. I was no longer active and had slowly put on a considerable amount of weight. I made a number of lame attempts to lose weight through fad diets (I really should have known better) only to be left disappointed.
It was not until I made a real commitment to change my eating habits, activity levels and overall lifestyle that I saw real results in my fitness level.
About Veggie Tips
I created Veggie Tips to share what I have learned through my renewed love of fitness and overall healthy lifestyle. Over the last few years I have slowly transitioned to become a vegetarian. This transition has not been as hard as I thought it would be. With the help of a number of expert cooks that I know, I have been able to change my eating habits and really do not miss what I use to eat. I am way more healthy and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I will use Veggie Tips to share information on how I transitioned to be come a vegetarian, my favourite recipes that helped me along my transition and tips for an active lifestyle.
I believe that food can be prepared in a way that is healthy but also packed with flavour. Healthy food does not have to be bland and boring.
