Hello and welcome to Savory Lotus! My name is Katja, and and this blog is where I share my deep love of whole foods. The recipes that you’ll find here are all things that I make for my own family and all revolve around real food ingredients. My hope is to inspire and evoke the love of clean eating through delicious, simple recipes.
This is how we do healthy in our family.
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. My motto is: No matter how you eat, just eat more vegetables.
I don’t subscribe to any particular diet. I eat organic whole foods. Lots of vegetables. No gluten. And I listen to what my body needs. I believe that everyone has unique needs and body chemistries that change as we change and grow.
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. Buy as much fresh, local, seasonal produce as possible. Try to get pastured eggs and grass fed and sustainable meats when you can. Your 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 things that interest me as a mama, yoga teacher, and women’s health RN.
I love learning and growing. And I will share insights and inspirations that I have along the way. Thanks so much for reading!
