Hi, my name is Camilla–thanks for stopping by my website, Power Hungry®!

I am a cookbook author (20+), recipe developer, fitness instructor and runner. I am a native Northern Californian (San Francisco East Bay), but I currently live in Texas with my husband and son.

Power Hungry is the place where I share the fast, fresh recipes I have developed to power me and my family through our busy lives in general, and our fitness endeavors in particular. We are a sporty crew.

My primary focus here at Power Hungry is making delicious, plant-based eats, especially ones that have the added advantage of portability. It is a rare day when I do not have an assortment of portable snacks–in varying degrees of squished-ness–packed in my bag or purse.

I have always loved to bake, and I am especially interested in using alternative and innovative flours, ingredients and methods to create wholesome, easy-to-prepare breads, cookies, muffins, energy bars and more that are gluten-free, grain-free and plant-based. I love challenges!

Although I swam a lot as a child, I did not get into fitness and exercise again until college. Before long, I transitioned from avid participant to instructor. I’ve been teaching a wide range of fitness classes ever since, including, but not limited to, pilates, yoga, spinning, kickboxing, and strength training. At present, I teach spin classes, which complement my primary fitness passion: running!

I started running when I turned 30. Specifically, I decided to train for and run my first marathon. I did it (barely; I chose a June marathon and the weather was in the 90s. Oy vey!), but I was hooked nonetheless. I have run many races since, and am always looking forward to my next one.

When I’m not developing recipes for Power Hungry, working on a new writing project, or teaching classes, I love to get outside, spend time with my family and friends, watch my son play baseball, travel, and read (everything).

I heard about your new book from the article in my IU Alumni Magazine. Congrats! I look forward to reading your blog on a regular basis. I love to make home made things like this for my family, I just finished a batch of granola bars last night! The bars pictured in the magazine look amazing and I can't wait to try some of the recipes.

Camilla, I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for recipes with buckwheat flour. Your recipe for banana and chocolate cake is a marvel. I needed to omit the pecans my children attend a nut free school so I added the same quantity of dessicated coconut. Works very well!!!! I have made the cake 5 times in the last 9 days and it gets inhaled by my family and many teenage boys that hang around my kitchen. Thank you so much for creating a gluten free gem.
