Shiraz Leyva is a food and lifestyle writer with specialization in holistic living. She loves helping people of all walks of life connect with nature through real food, intuitive eating, clean beauty, and intentional seasonal living. She’s as happy in high heels as she is digging around in her garden, and especially happy when sharing a great meal with friends. Before going to the school of the world wide web, she studied literature in the US (Berkeley and New York) and Europe (Florence and Berlin), and picked up some cooking classes along the way. She’s currently based in Los Angeles.
