Her love of food, and particularly using real food to heal inspired her popular food blog and wellness site, TheCastawayKitchen.com.

She is a Miami native with Cuban roots who is currently living in Virginia, or wherever her husband’s Navy career takes them. At 29 years old and 2 years postpartum, Cristina hit rock bottom with her health. On top of an inflammatory skin condition she had lived with for years, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, she began to experience many mystery symptoms and inflammation, Cristina took to the kitchen to find wellness. Using her culinary prowess and love of research, she began to discover the connection between her symptoms and the food she ate. This ongoing experiment birthed her blog, which is a collection of inventive, allergen-friendly, low carb, whole-food recipes that have helped her reverse autoimmune disease, lose weight, and take control of her own health and well-being. Empowering people to heal from the inside out is her life’s work! With a mix of grit, sass and a lot of love, she continues to do just that through her books, her social media platform, and her nutritional coaching as well.
