I’m Monica from Michigan, but am living in Belgium with my main squeeze, Axel. My concept comes from my deeply rooted love for food, especially sweet treats. You won’t find any of that here though. I’m on a mission to create interesting meals made with real foods, with normal ingredients that anybody can get their hands on- without excessive amounts of sugar, salt, wheat, dairy, and other junk.

I cook meals to fuel the body in an inspiring way that won’t leave you feeling heavy or lethargic.

My most recent challenge is giving up sugar…let’s see how long I can do it!

Why the Whole30 Rebel name? In all honesty, I tried the Whole30 plan, but simply couldn’t give up quinoa. It’s so versatile and lovely and yummy. I’m a rebel!
