I was so confused why they want the recipes since there are free recipes online. What I accomplished over time it was that people wanted my interpretation of my recipes because they are easy, healthy and look good”, says the entrepreneur exclusively Morning honey while talking about his collaboration with CA Nuts.
“It’s been almost 10 years since I started this journey, and it’s become my full-time job with 10 people working with me. It’s amazing to see this passion comes to life. It all started when I discovered why food is good for you and how it makes you feel good. I always try to get back into nutrition as much as possible,” she continues.
Over the years, the brunette beauty has gotten to interact and meet fans, especially since the rise of TikTok. Now more than ever, people are interested in learning more health and nutritionwhich warms her heart. “A lot of people are connecting with how easy it is to prepare healthy meals at home.

“I’m a big fan of nuts. Being Lebanese, we eat a lot of nuts and have a lot of savory and sweet recipes. I take a handful of nuts a day. So when California nuts asked me to collaborate with them on a recipe, I thought this was an obvious opportunity. We are trying to bring more awareness to the use of nut meat recipes. It’s something I learned a few years ago when I started seeing food bloggers making nutmeat taco meat,” she shares. this trick at home.’ It’s great to bring more awareness, especially if you’re looking for more vegan or plant-based options.”
“The first thing I ever made was taco meat, and I love the idea,” she adds. “Recently I also made stuffed pasta shells with walnut pulp, and it was delicious!”
