RECIPE DEVELOPER, FOOD STYLIST & PHOTOGRAPHER


Hi! I’m José, a food photographer and stylist, recipe developer and the creator of the food blog – Swoon Food – a recipe site dedicated to inspiring healthy eating and living.

I’m a passionate foodie on a quest for ultimate health & longevity, and I love to help busy people nourish their bodies from the inside out. Most of the recipes you’ll find on my blog are whole food, plant-based and gluten-free, as that’s the way I prefer to eat.

Originally a medical research scientist, I followed my lifelong passion for all things sweet to become a pastry chef, and then a food stylist/photographer, recipe developer and healthy food blogger.

I’m also the co-founder of Halo & Swoon – an organic, plant-based, allergy-friendly baking mix company which you can check out here.

MY SWOON FOOD PHILOSOPHY


I believe food is the ultimate key to health, and prevention is the best kind of medicine.

By nourishing your body with a plant-rich, nutrient dense, whole foods diet, you’re well on your way to a happy, healthy life.


 


 

 

When I’m not creating or photographing food, you can usually find me eating out, working out, or walking with my husband Nick and our extremely large Alaskan Malamute Chewbacca (left; Chewie sadly passed away in November 2020 at a grand old age for a malamute of 11 1/2) and our crazy pup Sadie, an Airedale Terrier (right).

I love to travel and share many of my foodie adventures on Instagram, where you’ll often get a glimpse at Sadie’s crazy antics too.
