About me


I’m Maria.  I am a plantbased blogger, recipe developer and well-being promoter. Passionate about simplicity and natural foods, I feel happiest in my kitchen. As a clumsy cook, I often make a mess, yet my OCD kicks in straight away to restore order.

Maria's Natural Kitchen

I’m originally from Romania and I grew up in a family of cooks and farmers. My love for plants goes way back to when I used to play with my brother in my grandparents’ apricot orchard. We used to snack on fresh fruit and explore the beautiful nature around. Those are my happiest memories!


My mission is to inspire you to live closer to nature and cook with fresh, natural ingredients! To take breaks and time off, admire nature and live more consciously. 

I strongly believe we thrive when powered by and near plants. My blog is here to help you get healthier and happier by discovering simple, delicious plantbased recipes . But I am also sharing tips on how to easily maintain a more natural and conscious lifestyle. From useful food hacks to dealing with anxiety, I am here to help 🙂

Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, there’s guidance, advice and easy recipes for you to try.

So sit back, relax and get inspired! Or better yet, subscribe to have all these delivered into your inbox weekly.
