About

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!

Fitness

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, working on a new project (including my new website, One Bowl Baker), 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).

Do you teach fitness classes remotely/online at all? I’ve been baking a lot from your site/books this past year & would like to be supportive in a more substantial way… if not, something to consider?

I was really hoping to try your millet bread Recipe, but ran into a problem finding whole psyllium husks.

I can find a powder but not the husks themselves. Tell me where I can purchase them, and I'll be more than happy to fo so. I LOVE the taste of millet bread toast and every now and then turn my hand to baking. Your recipe seems more than Simple, and I SHOULD be able to handle it. So Please Help!

Are your recipe measurements according to US or UK measurements?

Hi Geraldine, I am in the US, so cups and tablespoons are based on US measurements. I am not aware of a difference between US and UK cups and teaspoon/tablespoon measures. For the past few years, I have also included metric measurements for recipes in recent years (and updating older recipes with metric options). I hope that helps!

Keep up these great recipes! You really should public a book. Happy to invite you to Taiwan to be a guest instructor if you are interested

We played in the Albany high orchestra before, not sure if you still remember me. Hiro Liao

HI Hiro! What a thrill to receive a message from you!!! Yes, of course I remember you, what a fun surprise, and neat to remember the days when we played for Mr. Douglas. I hope you are doing well in Taiwan--my son and husband and I have been contemplating a trip to several Asian countries in the next year or two (now that the pandemic is lifted). I will get in touch, ok?
