About Us

Hi! Welcome to AlterCooking, your top-notch destination for healthy eating inspiration!

We are Marilena and Martha, the creators of AlterCooking, and we live in this small, yet renowned country of southern Europe, named Greece! We both share a passion for healthy food and believe that living a healthy life overall doesn’t have to be a daily struggle. With the right guidance and commitment, you can make small changes that have a big impact! We are here to help you on your journey towards a healthier and happier life!

A few words from us, so that you get to know us better:

“Hi, I’m Marilena. I live in Athens, Greece and I like reading, writing, socializing and outdoor activities. Till 2013 my fridge contained only limes and tuborg (for gin of course). I never used to cook and passed my days with “healthy” toasts and orange juice on the go. In 2014 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and that was it. It was enough to help me change my life, diet included. I indulged to a healthier style of life, quit my job, became vegan, and started hiking. I now cook my own lunches, read beyond the labels of my food and FEEL BETTER THAN EVER. I do have my bad days but every moment counts! That’s the spirit!”

“Hello, I’m Martha, also living in Athens. I’m a working mum with a 4 year old son that is super energetic, so you can imagine that my daily routine is a real challenge! I’ve never really favored unhealthy food – although I do admit to indulge to them every once in a while. Ever since I became a mum, though, I started rethinking my eating habits and now I try to feed my family with as less processed food as possible and to use healthier ingredients in my recipes. Last summer my son went crazy over ice-cream but I didn’t want to treat him with fatty and unhealthy ice-creams everyday. So I started looking for healthier versions of frozen treats and surprisingly I found plenty of recipes online. My son was thrilled and so was I! However, searching the web was time-consuming and I wish I had a resource with all these recipes put together. Videos helped a lot, in just a few minutes I realized whether I could make the recipe or not. This experience was the trigger to start thinking about AlterCooking, a place where anyone can find lists of video recipes with a specific theme and so much more. A few months later, with the help of Marilena, this idea turned into reality. I hope you enjoy our website, our Facebook page and Instagram account and join our community of healthy cooking people.”
