Our Story

Hi, I’m Lexi. My Dad and I created Avoca’Do, to encourage you to stop thinking about being healthy, and start DO-ing it!

We both have struggled with diet related health issues. It helped us truly understand the importance of nutritious food to heal and feel our best. We also believe being healthy doesn’t have to mean eliminating all the fun indulgences in your life!

Our hope is that Avoca’Do can help create a positive movement of healthier living.

I have always been drawn to food and cooking. I was even on the Rachael Ray Show when I was nine years old! However, as a teen, I developed body image and diet issues while my father struggled with Type II Diabetes. This was a wake up call for us to take action and DO something. We began to focus on thinking, eating, living, and DO-ing everything a little bit healthier.

It really stuck with me how even the smallest changes towards healthy living can improve all areas of your life. My interest continued so I studied Public Health. After graduation, I served with FoodCorps teaching kids in school about nutrition, cooking and gardening so they can grow up healthy. Soon after, I became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach while working at the Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School. Through these experiences it reinforced my passion for food, cooking and ways to live healthier.
Now, with Avoca’Do I hope to share with others that healthy living can be fun, simple and not about perfection. I believe true health is about how you feel.

With Love & Avoca’Do,
Lexi
