Hi! I'm Janet Irizarry


In a world inundated with choices and overwhelmed by the challenges of modern living, I am on a mission to transform everyone into a Mindful Foodie. Recognizing the profound impact of food choices on health, finances, and the environment, I aim to inspire a holistic approach to food using the My Mindful Kitchen (MMK) Method. This method goes beyond mere culinary appreciation to create a truly mindful way of life.

Growing up, my mom made the kitchen a place not just for family meals but also for conversation and connection. Her influence instilled in me a lasting appreciation for food's power to bring people together, nourish, and contribute to our shared responsibility to others and the planet. I am here to share it with you in a way that will bring a newfound joy into your kitchen.

The MMK Method and You

My Mindful Kitchen is driven by my deep love for food and a commitment to a sustainable future. In a world where we often have access to plenty of food, we tend to overlook its deeper significance beyond mere sustenance. When we approach food with mindfulness, being aware of its impact on ourselves and the world around us, we can connect with our core values. By doing so, we not only nourish our bodies physically but also nurture our minds and souls.

If this makes sense to you, I hope you will join me as I provide tools, strategies, and hacks that make it easy for you to make food choices that align with your innate values such as love, gratitude, showing compassion for others, and kindness to the planet. Become part of a community that is working to do good things for the planet while finding more joy with every bite along the way.
