About The Living Chirpy Team
Living Chirpy is at its core a food blog built on the “healthy body, healthy mind” philosophy. When you eat well, you feel well or as we say “chirpy food = chirpy mood”. Creating recipes that use fresh, whole ingredients while staying mainly low-carb, we pave a way to eat a healthy, energized diet which in turn becomes the foundation of everything else and the path to “living chirpy”.
Our recipes follow most closely to these diets:
Low-Carb | Keto | Paleo | Whole-30
The Pioneers of Living Chirpy
I’m 29 years old and grew up in Nelspruit, South Africa. After high school, I moved to the city of Pretoria to study Multimedia. A few years into my studies I changed paths and suddenly found myself in culinary school in Sandton – the complete opposite of what I had been doing! Soon after I was boarding a plane set for Florida, USA, for a culinary internship. This is where I met my husband, Cody. While caught up in a whirlwind of paperwork that left me unable to work legally in the USA, I decided to fulfill a years-long dream of food blogging. Fast forward a couple of years, me, Cody, and our baby boy Bo are back in South Africa, and our hobby blog has turned into a full time job.
I’m 30 years old, born and bred in Virginia, USA. My main passions are photography, design, and being creative in general. I studied Digital Art & Design in Florida, before living and working in North Carolina for a couple of years. Now, I find myself in South Africa. I love living on the adventurous side of life through travel and exploration with my beautiful wife Shay and baby son Bo. Building Living Chirpy has been such a thrill for me, and it’s something we can update no matter where we are in the world – and that is something I truly am proud of!
I’m 24 years old and am currently working as an au pair in Washington, DC. I started playing the harp at age 16 and my music studies continued for a couple of years after school. Apart from music, I’ve always had a fondness for cooking and living a healthy lifestyle. My sister (Roché) and I have always dreamed about creating a food-related income source. We made a promise to each other that we’re a package deal – whoever starts something that turns into a success first would include the other one. My sister won the race! So here I am: Living Chirpy’s Idea Factory, Editor, and internet explorer finding the best recipes from other bloggers to include in our weekly themed roundups!
