Hey there! I’m Hallie Klecker, a freelance recipe developer, food photographer, Certified Holistic Nutrition Educator, author, and passionate foodie.
About 6 years ago, my health took a scary turn. I spent months with chronic stomach pain, digestive woes, fatigue, and unexplained weight loss. Over the course of about 2 years, I lost over 20 pounds, and on my already small frame that was major. When I finally pinned down the culprits—food sensitivities to gluten and dairy—I began viewing my food in an entirely new and refreshing light. I dove into the world of nutrition and holistic health with both feet. One bite at a time, I learned to heal my body with real, colorful, nutrient-dense food.
Although my journey back to optimal health was a long and winding one, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The magnitude of what I’ve learned and continue to learn about the human body, the healing power of food, and the joy of cooking still amazes me on a daily basis.
After completing my studies in holistic nutrition and receiving my certification as a Nutrition Educator, I set out to share my passion for vibrant health with others—and there began my real education. Building a business and overcoming the challenges that tag along with entrepreneurship have taught me more than any course ever could.
When I launched Daily Bites in 2009, I had no idea that it would grow into the powerhouse that it is today, or that it would fulfill and challenge me to the extent that it does. Since beginning my career in food and nutrition, I’ve published two cookbooks (The Pure Kitchen and Super Healthy Cookies) as well as an e-book (Crazy for Kale). I’m also on the editorial team for Simply Gluten Free Magazine and regularly contribute recipes to Paleo Magazine. I also teach cooking classes on a regular basis in my local area of Madison, Wisconsin.
As a business owner, I wear a lot more hats than I thought I would, but suffice it to say that my world is food. And I love it.
To be honest, this wasn’t my original idea of a dream job. But it is certainly is now!
If you’d have told me 6 years ago that today I’d be a young 20-something running a business doing what I love most, I probably would have called you crazy. But sometimes crazy is what we need most to set us up for living life as our most authentic selves.
