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).

Hi I’m so excited to find your sight. Two questions do you have an email list for newsletter or recipe to be sent abs secondly do you have any suggestions for other brands of Psyllium husk. As Amazon is all out of the brand used.

Thanks!

Any chance your Shortcut Cookie Book will ever be an e-book?

I just bought your Shortcut Cookie Book. Since I'm fairly new to baking, I'm having concerns about adding "extras" like cinnamon, ginger, etc to plain cookie recipes. I have the Pro Krusteaz cookie mix and don't know how much of these to add to a batch.

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!

Hi Mary! I have to buy it at my local health food store, or (more often) I order it (amazon, vitacost, iherb). The brand I use is NOW foods.
