Hello, my name is Alicia Watson and I am the owner and founder of Vito & Vera. Food has been an obsession for as long as I can remember, but I never really understood the connection between food and wellness until about two and a half years ago. While working as an occupational therapist in home health, I began to look at the wellness of my patients, or really the lack thereof. I began to look at nutrition as a means of complementary treatment. Intrigued by the concept that “food is medicine,” I enrolled in culinary school and began to focus on culinary wellness and plant-based cuisine.
