Hi, my name is Camilla–thanks for stopping by my website, Power Hungry!
I am a cookbook author, recipe developer, fitness instructor and runner. I am also a native Northern Californian (San Francisco East Bay!), but I currently live in Texas with my husband and son.
Power Hungry is the place where I share the fast, fresh recipes I have developed to power me and my family through our busy lives in general, and our fitness endeavors in particular. We are a sporty crew.
My primary focus here at Power Hungry is making delicious, plant-based eats, especially ones that have the added advantage of portability. It is rare day when I do not have an assortment of portable snacks–in varying degrees of squished-ness–packed in my purse.
I have always loved to bake, and I am especially interested in using alternative and innovative flours, ingredients and methods to create wholesome, easy-to-prepare breads, cookies, muffins, energy bars and more that are gluten-free, grain-fee and plant-based. I love challenges!
Although I swam a lot as a child, I did not get into fitness and exercise again until college. Before long, I transitioned from avid participant to instructor. I’ve been teaching a wide range of fitness classes ever since, including, but not limited to, pilates, yoga, spinning, kickboxing, and strength training. At present, I teach spin classes, which complement my primary fitness passion: running!
I did not start running until I turned 30. It was turning 30 that prompted me to start running, specifically to train for and run a marathon. I did it (barely; I chose a June marathon and the weather was in the 90s. Oy vey!), but I was hooked nonetheless.
When I’m not developing recipes for Power Hungry, working on a new writing project, or teaching classes, I love to get outside, spend time with my family and friends, watch my son play baseball, travel, and read (especially mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction & The New Yorker (I am perpetually an issue–at least–behind)).
