About

Hi, I’m Valerie, a San Francisco native that gave up the comforts of home in Silicon Valley to travel the world with my husband and two dogs. After 18 months of travelling non-stop, we’ve settled in the Pacific Northwest. Portland, OR is now home.

Let’s Regale is like an onion. There are lots of layers to it. It’s bits + bites of food, life + travel. Ultimately, it’s a blog focusing on living a fit and healthy lifestyle through sharing of recipes, wellness inspirations, and tips that are a part of my everyday life. Through my journey of living a healthier, happier life, I’ve realised that it’s part of my happiness as a person, putting effort into something, sharing and inspiring with others.

This blog grew out of that realisation. It’s a way for me to share my passion for living a fit and healthy life for a lot more people. It’s a place to share the things that make me a happier, healthier person through clean eating recipes, fitness, travel and overall wellness.

I want to inspire you to get in the kitchen and cook a nourishing meal; see the world and experience new things; and maintain an active lifestyle to be the healthiest, happiest optimal YOU. Because what’s more than life itself, is the love behind it that gives it meaning.

When I’m not health-hacking recipes, cooking (and blending) up a storm, and snapping millions of food photos on Instagram, I work as a Food Stylist, Content Creator + Social Media Strategist in the Health Food and Health + Wellness industries, taking brands to the next level through digital and social marketing. You can find out more about that here.
