Claudia Curici Creative In My Kitchen

Hi, and welcome to my virtual kitchen!

My name is Claudia Curici, and I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York in 2019, and the founder of Creative in My Kitchen, a food and lifestyle blog where I write about my health journey and post original recipes that are always low-lectin, gluten-free, and sugar-free.

I am the author of two cookbooks, with over 225 healthy and delicious recipes informed by my love of healthy food and decades of traveling and living on different continents:

I was born and raised in Romania; I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a master’s degree in Communication and Public Relations and I have worked in media, communication, and PR for over 15 years.

I lived and worked for eight years in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and five years in Dallas, Texas. My interests and passions are photography, healthy living, learning, traveling, and exploring new cultures. I believe FOOD IS MEDICINE.

After traveling and living around the world, I felt like my health was declining in my late 30s, especially after moving to the United States. While traditional medicine didn’t have an answer for me and dismissed my symptoms and weight gain as simply age-related hormonal fluctuations, I never stopped looking for answers. 

I first heard of lectins in July 2017 when I read an interview with Dr. Steven Gundry, the author of The Plant Paradox, about healthy foods that might make us sick. I started a lectin-free lifestyle and living healthy in general, and since then, most of my symptoms have been resolved – and I lost the extra pounds I gained in my late 30s. 

On my blog, Creative in My Kitchen, and my cookbooks, I share my everyday experiments with food, my joy of cooking tasty, nutritious, and beautiful meals for myself and my family, and my health journey with others on the same path. 

I founded my blog while living in Dallas, Texas, and now I live and create from different places in Europe, including Romania and Denmark.

This website was born thanks to the small community formed around my Instagram account, and I am beyond grateful for all the support, guidance, encouragement, and love I receive daily.

I hope this virtual kitchen will help us all take good care of our health and well-being.
