“A Conscious Appetite” was, humbly, created to chronicle a part of my life and share travel and food musings with family & friends.  If, in turn, any of this also entertains you, then what a sweet reward!

I (yes, that’s me on the lounge!) currently live between the beautiful city of San Francisco and beachside in Marbella on the southern coast of Spain.

SF & Marbella

I love all things food related, but I’m just an authority when it comes to eating!  I’m curious about food from different cultures, getting to know more about what I’m eating and will always try something once…even if it’s still moving!

In my category “What’s Cooking?”, I cook the no-recipe way and simplicity is key.  Therefore, dishes you see are mainly thrown together by common sense cooking skills, preference and, most importantly, taste.  So, if you’re looking for traditional recipes, sorry, not here!  Besides, it’s much more fun cooking with your eyes and your mouth, they will never let you down.  😉

Thank you for taking a peek into my world, one entry at a time.  Cheers!

You can contact me at:  aconsciousappetite@me.com


The photos are all taken by me, unless indicated.  I use a point-and-shoot Leica D-Lux 4 camera and I’m purely a casual photographer.  Most importantly, I take super quick and straightforward photos that do not compromise or, god forbid, delay the actual act of eating!  Priorities!

You are welcome to use the photos, but I’d appreciate a link to my post/blog.

Thank you for all of your comments and inquiries!

    • Thank you for liking my photos! But, funny enough, that is not my favorite part of writing the blog. I always tell anyone that I’m dining with, “If taking photos for my blog interrupts the actual EATING of the meal, I will stop blogging!”. So, the shots are true quickies! 🙂

      I don’t actively participate in Instagram.

      I love the original theme of your blog, super entertaining and makes me laugh every time!
