Hello and welcome to Savory Lotus! My name is Katja, and here you will find my take on living a healthy lifestyle. I aspire to create easy to prepare, real food recipes that anyone can make. I would like to help make clean living accessible to everyone. I write about things that are important to me as a mama, wife, and real food activist. I am also an aspiring food photographer.
Food is my passion. And food is also my medicine. I believe that good health starts with a healthy gut. So the foods that I prepare are intended to not only taste good but to nourish and heal the body as well. The emphasis here is on REAL food, meaning unprocessed, organic, simple meals. I love food. I am not afraid of butter or bacon. I use lots of healthy fats like ghee and coconut oil in my cooking. I do not subscribe to any particular diet, but you won’t find any gluten or grains on my site. I believe that everyone has unique needs and body chemistry. And I believe that lifestyle changes like reducing stress and getting more sleep are just as important to restoring and maintaining good health and vitality as the food you put into your mouth.
I encourage folks to buy as much organic foods as you can afford. Try to get pastured eggs and meats when you can. You body is only a temple if you treat it like one. And I also encourage you to be gentle and kind with yourself when making positive changes in your life and diet. It’s a process, a journey. And there is no “right” answer. All we can do is to live and eat they way that best serves us and our planet. And this real food blog is my journey…..

Many people come to clean living because of health issues. I am one of those people. Dealing with a chronic health issue has really driven what I am doing and where my blog is going. You can read about my healing journey HERE.
My kids are my motivation. I want my family to grow up healthy and happy. I want my children to love REAL food and to know where their food comes from. I want to be home with my kids as much as possible. Savory Lotus allows me to do that. This is my vision. This is my dream. This is my heart.
And these are my girls:
Real food is more than a way of eating. It’s a lifestyle. So along with delicious foods, you will find me sharing lots of natural, healthy living tips and DIY beauty secrets.
I love learning and growing. And I will share insights and inspirations that I have along the way. Thanks so much for reading!
