Welcome to Healthy Goodies by Lucia – A food blog and food photography. My name is Lucia Marecak, based in Turin, Italy, and I am a food blogger, recipe developer and food photographer behind this blog.
I come from Slovakia, a little country in the hearth of Europe and in 2015 I moved to Italy. I lived in Bratislava, Milan and currently I am based in Turin, a beautiful royal city.
WHY: HEALTHY GOODIES BY LUCIA – GLUTEN FREE AND LEGUME BASED
All my recipes on this blog are gluten-free, made with legumes (chickpea, chickpea flour or beans) and many of them are diary-free or vegan & plant-based.
Most part of my family members follow gluten free diet. I remember how difficult it was at the beginning to learn all again – cooking and baking, because gluten flour makes everything much easier. For this reason, I share all what I have learned in these 10 years, since we started cooking gluten-free dishes.
And why legumes? Legumes are such an amazing food, they are full of minerals, inevitable for our correct nutrition. They represent a great source of protein and carbohydrates. Daily intake of legumes can dramatically improve your health conditions, hair quality and works also as a prevention for many diseases. Me and my boyfriend, as we do home fitness very actively, legumes are just great source of protein and energy for us. There are so many different kinds of legumes and I love including them into our meals every day.
FOOD & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY
I am a food and lifestyle photographer. I photograph food, ingredients, and the story behind. I use images instead of words.
You can find different styles in my photography work. A light & bright images, that I shoot for this blog, light & moody, and also dark & moody styles, that you see on instagram or in my portfolio.
I learned the basics of photography on my own, later on I started attending different courses. I am an alumni of Foodtography school and currently a student of Lifestyle Academy Photography from Christina Greve.
If you are interested to learn more about my photography, this is my portfolio.
Thank you all for your love and support. Without you anything would not be possible. I hope you find an inspiration in my recipes and photography. If you have any questions or suggestions, you can contact me via the contact page. You can find me also on Instagram and Pinterest.
