Hello! I’m Cristina Maria Curp, Cuban-American, mother, wife, eater, and dreamer. The chef and creator of the Castaway Kitchen, a blog where I share my recipes, health journey, and adventures in Hawaii (or wherever I am living). I have been able to heal my body and greatly improve my quality of life through diet. Paleo has helped me achieve a level of remission with my autoimmune diseases that I never thought possible. This is where my passion for paleo comes from.
Oh heeey, I’m Dana. A 20-something, fun-sized cross-fitter, yogi and food lover who loves to make people laugh (mostly at me). I’m a Nutritionist, Integrative Health Coach, and Entrepreneur, teaching you how to heal and thrive with real food and a paleo lifestyle, one delicious meal at a time.
Former 300-pound chip eatin’ couch potato. Current Paleo goddess. Just kidding. No, but I have found my passion for health, cooking and finally living like I mean it, all while dropping over 120 pounds naturally. When I’m not working 12 hour overnight shifts at the hospital or whippin’ up something delicious (AND easy!), I’m outside with an iced coffee in one hand and my dog’s leash in the other. I’m so happy you came here to hang out with us!
