Bio

Hi, I'm Mellissa Sevigny and I am the cook, photographer, and writer behind the food blog I Breathe... I'm Hungry, which focuses primarily on low carb and gluten free eating. I am also the author of The Gluten Free Low Carber e-cookbook, available on Amazon.com.  I grew up in Conneticut, but currently reside in South Carolina with my husband of almost 20 years, our 6 year old son, and three (very) spoiled cats. 

My love of food and cooking began as a toddler, and I received my first cookbook at just four years old - I've been in the kitchen ever since!  I've worked in several restaurant kitchens over the years, as a caterer and personal chef, and also volunteered in local kitchens for a non-profit organization. In 2004 I competed, and placed third in, The View's Next Food Network Star, which was a pilot program for the now popular Food Network show.  I started this blog in 2011, and went low carb and gluten free in January of 2012.  Helping people lose weight, or manage their health with my recipes has been the most fulfilling part of writing a blog.  I love getting comments and emails from my readers, and interacting with them on the facebook page.  Blogging has become a huge part of my life, and I can't imagine a day when I will decide that it's time to stop.  I can't wait to see what the next year will bring!
