Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog – Living Leena Loca! I’m Leena, a teenage girl living a pretty loca life.

I am a major foodie, and am almost always in the kitchen and dreaming up all kinds of new recipes. On my blog you’ll find recipes, product reviews, and anything else “foodie” related! Cooking and baking are my true passions and I enjoy everything about them!

One of my goals is to go to the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) in Hyde Park, NY. It would be absolutely amazing to be able to go there and enhance my culinary skills and learn so many things that I never thought I could about cooking and food! I would also love to have my own cookbook someday, and have my recipes known everywhere! I love experimenting with new recipes, and food combinations, and also love trying new foods and products.  Going to the grocery store just happens to be another one of my favorite things to do! 🙂

I’m also really interested in nutrition. Becoming a nutritionist is also one of my goals for the next few years. I’ve always been interested in the health benefits of different foods, and how they affect the body. For awhile, I was on a gluten/dairy free diet, so I really learned a lot about how different foods can affect you in different ways, good and bad. Now that I’m off that diet though, try to eat a variety of everything, even those delicious sweets, because life’s too short to eat boring food! Eating intuitively to fuel my body and make it strong and healthy is a big priority for me aswell. I always try to eat good, healthful foods, and believe that you should always eat what your body craves.

Another thing I plan to share on the blog is my photography. I love taking pictures, and would love to share them on here. Not only to I love capturing photos of  food and recipes, but also anything that catches my eye. I love looking at things from a different angle, and being able to find beauty in even the littlest thing.

Feel free to ask me any questions you have! I will try answer every question or comment I get. I look forward to hearing from you all, and I hope you follow me on my journey through my Loca Life!
