About The Healthy Hoff

What is the Healthy Hoff and what can it do for me?

For one, The Healthy Hoff is a real person...ME!  I can't take full credit for the name.  My friends nicknamed me Hoff (short for Hoffman), I added the Healthy part.  Anyway, I spend a lot of time researching healthy stuff so you don't have to...because, well, I enjoy it!  I'm a whole foods, planted-based, oil-free, Vegan who strives to live life as holistically as possible.  That being said, I'm also a real chick, who approaches this lifestyle realistically, while balancing everything else in life!  I reside in Cleveland, Ohio!  So when I say local, that's the area I'm usually referring to.  Oh and I also have a black cat, named Morticia, who makes an appearance on the site from time to time.

Oh yeah!  I can't seem to stop going to school!  As a result, I hold a few certifications:
  • Health Coach Certification, Institute for Integrative Nutrition 
  • Starch Solution Certification, Dr. McDougall's Health & Medical Center
  • Certification in Reversing Common Diseases, Dr. McDougall's Health & Medical Center
  • Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition, Cornell University
  • Certificate in Holistic Nutrition, American College of Healthcare Sciences
  • Certificate in Wellness 101, The Wellness Forum, Columbus, Ohio
  • Certificate in Natural Health & Healing, Lorain Community College
  • Certificate in Luscious, Low-Fat, Lightning-Quick Meals, Lorain Community College
  • Professional Plant-Based Certification, Rouxbe Cooking School
I created this site to house any interesting & useful tidbits I digest, so that I can share it with you!

I use this all the time!

The Healthy Hoff was designed to be a constantly evolving resource of healthy knowledge, that grows as I grow!  For instance, when I started this site (March 2011), I was a Prescatarian, which in my case was a vegan who ate fish.  Since then, I have evolved into a 100% oil-free, vegan, due to all my studies and research.  So you may come across a recipe or two with fish in it, but the majority are now oil-free and vegan.  And any recipe that begins with "Hoff" is something I created myself and thought was good enough to share!

With this site, you can discover:

I'm also working to put together a directory of local Healthy Restaurants and Bakeries that are either vegan  friendly.  As well as a list of Lifestyle Resources to help you with your quest to a healthier self!

By striving to learn at least one healthy thing a day, you will evolve into your own health expert as well as be inspired to continue on your healthy journey.

I am inspired daily by the things I learn and my goal is to inspire you to live a healthier life through knowledge!

Keep It Healthy!
