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, gluten-free 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 (LOVED) to bake. As such, you will soon discover that most of my recipes here are baking-centric. Power Hungry® is my space for sharing my adventures in baking with 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, or teaching classes, I love to get outside, spend time with my family and friends, watch my son play baseball, travel, and read (everything, but always good British mysteries).

Please can you tell me if any of your recipes are suitable for Type 1 diabetic? What would I look for in any given recipe? I'm new to your wonderful website and would LOVE to use it for many of our cooking needs.

Hi Pam! Welcome! If you use the search bar and search for lentils, beans, or split peas, you will find a wealth of easy high protein recipes suitable for a type 1 diabetic diet. The same is true for my recipes that use flaxseed meal (since flaxseeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and unique plant compounds, they may improve blood sugar control, insulin sensitivity, and reduce risk factors for heart disease)--but avoid the recipes that have added sweetener, unless there is a sugar-free substitute noted.

I have a lot of recipes for chickpea flour, too. Again, avoid ones with added sweetener, go with the savory options. Chickpea flour is an excellent flour option for diabetics. Also check out my recipes that are based on chia seeds (like 1 ingredient chia flatbreads) or pepitas (pumpkin seeds). Cheers!

I have been google searching for a vegan GF loaf. I have numerous different recipes, one by another Camilla and even another version of this recipe. Sometimes they turn out ok but other times they have a “funny “ taste. I was just wondering if I should crush the whole nuts a bit or leave them whole. Thanks.

Hi Pamela! Could you let me know which recipe you are referencing? Your comment is on my About page, so I am not sure.

I have lots of different types of vegan gluten-free loaves on my site that I think you will love. My 100% Millet bread is a great all-around sandwich bread loaf, for starters. :)

Hi Camilla, Just found your website when I searched Black Bean Tortilla recipes. Wow! You have so many recipes I want to try! I'm in a Facebook Group, Acid Watchers Diet Warriors & More. They/we are always looking for delicious recipes that fit our dietary needs. Some we have to slightly modify to fit the Acid Watchers Diet. My question is, are your recipes copyright or would they be ok to share. Of course, I would credit your page and I'm sure many in our Group would Subscribe to your Newsletter. Will await your response before I share.

Thank you!
