Hi, my name is Camilla–thanks for stopping by my blog, Power Hungry!
I am a wife, mother, cookbook author, recipe developer, fitness instructor and trainer, and an avid endurance race competitor. In 2005 I earned my Ph.D. in sociology–with a dual focus on health & medicine and American foodways– from Indiana University.
Power Hungry is my personal blog 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. My primary focus is making delicious, whole foods-based dishes, including baking (I will always love dessert). It’s all about finding a happy, healthy balance.
Power Hungry began under a different name–Enlightened Cooking–in December 2007. Power Hungry (re-) launched in January, 2013. Let’s face it–it’s a lot easier to spell.
I’ve been teaching a wide range of fitness classes for almost two decades, including, but not limited to, pilates, yoga, spinning, kickboxing, and strength training. I’ve also spent many years as a personal trainer. I hold certifications in both personal training and fitness instruction through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and I am a STOTT® certified pilates instructor.
When I’m not teaching classes, I love to get out and run, swim, and hike, as well as generally play out of doors with my family and friends.
