MEET DANI CALIFORNIA

OUT OF OFFICE!

Hello from rainy and wintry San Francisco! I am stopping by today to wish all of my readers a very happy holiday season and share some news.

It may come as no surprise to many of you, but I have decided to put blogging to the side for the time being. I used to be so inspired and passionate about putting out content 3x week, but in the last few months, I just haven’t been feeling as creative or excited about the blog.

I started DCC back in 2014, deep in my eating disorder. It’s actually kind of embarrassing to look back at those old posts and think that I was promoting a healthy lifestyle when I certainly was not one to preach. Two nutritionists (thank you Robyn and Cody!!!) and therapy later and I can honestly say that I’m recovered and I don’t feel the need to essentially prove that I’m healthy anymore through my blog. I used to devour other bloggers’ content every day looking for inspiration or validation of my own eating habits, and now I only read a handful of super well established blogs – I’ve found that many other bloggers also have an unhealthy relationship with food and, like I used to, are promoting it. Maybe that’s another reason that I’m tabling DCC for now, as I don’t connect with the person who originally started it.

I absolutely love to cook, and I love, love, love food and food culture and food sustainability and talking about food and sharing my love for food. I hope we can stay in touch via e-mail and share recipes, or via Instagram, and who knows – maybe I’ll be back in action eventually! For now, the blog will stay active as an archive in case you ever want to refer to an old post or recipe.
