Welcome to “Here to cook”, a food blog created to provide you with easy-to-make, low carb, keto and paleo food recipes that taste amazing.
My name is Anna and I’m here to cook healthy food without compromising on taste! But, before I start mixing, frying, and
baking, let me tell you a little bit more about myself, so you get to know me better.
I was traveling the world for 5 years, trying to figure out my life, before I landed here in Sweden. I grew up in the far northwest part of Russia, in a port city called Murmansk. As you understand, English is not my first language, so I hope you’ll forgive me for mistakes I may make here and there.
After graduating from university, where I studied tourism and hotel management, I decided that I want to travel for a while before jumping into the corporate world. So, I moved to Japan, where I studied the Japanese language and worked part-time as a bartender. It was the first time I realized that I like mixing different ingredients and coming up with new flavors, but I was yet to discover my love for cooking and creating my own recipes.
Anyway, long story short: after two years in Japan, I decided to travel and work a little bit more. I was trying different jobs in different countries. Trying to find myself, I moved to China, then to Vietnam, and then again to China. It was when applying for another job in Beijing that I met my partner in crime, Martin. We were managing our long-distance relationship for two years, seeing each every now and then, but in the end we decided to be together for real. I moved one more time – to Sweden.
ABOUT HERE TO COOK
Here in Sweden, I got hooked on ultra-distance trail running and weight lifting. I started thinking about how I fuel my body to enhance my training progress. Eventually, I ended up spending a lot of time in the kitchen creating healthy, keto, low carb, and paleo recipes, along with reading a lot of information about nutrition and fitness. I also got interested in photography and video making – that’s why Here to Cook, the place I can combine most of my interests, came naturally to me.
Cooking has become a passion of mine and I’m eager to share my enthusiasm for healthy yet super delicious recipes!
