A Chat With Innovative Chef, Casey Angelova

A Chat With Innovative Chef, Casey Angelova

I love to eat!  And, I love to eat good, real food.  My interviewee, Casey Angelova loves real food, too, and it was one of the things that inspired her to become a chef.  I love to eat but I also like to understand the nutrition behind food because I believe it’s the key to health and longevity.  And, for those who may not already be aware, I live in Bulgaria while my husband finishes medical school.  Some might say that we live…well…an unorthodox life.  I suppose, we do.  I’m ok with that.  While my husband’s medical aspirations brought us here, I manage to keep myself busy and engaged no matter where we are.  My interests and passions have led me to meet some wonderfully unique and interesting people along the way.

This brings me to Casey Angelova.  Casey (despite her foreign sounding last name) is actually an American.  She married a brawny Bulgarian guy whom she met while living in the United States.  They got married and shortly after moved to Bulgaria with their daughters in search of a different way of life.  I sat down with Casey not too long ago and it resulted in an interview!  Here’s what Casey and I talked about.

Finding Our Way

Finding Our Way

I have been wondering what should be the topic of my first ‘real’ post and I came to the conclusion that it should be a discussion with none other than the person who was integral in inspiring me to pursue a lifestyle that was more naturally based.  I hesitate even saying ‘naturally based’ because what does that even mean?  Well, for me it meant eliminating things that I found to be harmful to my health and adding things that were beneficial.

In my quest to learn more, I quickly found out that there is a lot. of. information out there.  So much so that it created more confusion for me than clarity.  This was where Davina Sanders steps in.  Davina is someone that I had the pleasure of meeting when I was living in the United States in Maine.  Read the rest of this entry
