/ WHAT IS GUAVA KITCHEN

HOLA

I am Ixiana. I am a mom, and a nutrition specialist that loves  food, nutrition, family, and having fun in the kitchen.​ I grew up in the tropics, calling Puerto Rico my home. As a child my world was filled with salty water, grandma's cooking, spices, fresh fruit, dinner at the table, pique, sofrito, tocino, lot's of love and connection to what I ate.  

 

Guava Kitchen  is my dream of helping families create meaningful connections with each other and food. It is a place where children can connect to food by learning and preparing meals that they can share with family and friends. It combines my passions for cooking, mindful eating, nutrition, and teaching. I know food is not just about calories but also about culture, joy, love, nurturing, and connection. I  also know learning to cook and learning about food is a life skill that can set us up for success.

 

I want to bring families back into the kitchen

where they can grow, learn, and connect.

Guava Kitchen is about creating memories

and delicious and nutritious food.
