Hi there!  I’m Mary.  I live in the rainy city of Hamburg, Germany, with my husband Adam and our son Benoit.  We are an American/French family who have made our way from Germany to Ireland to France and back to Germany all within the past six years.

Caring for our whole body

Sprouting Radiance is where I share my journey of whole body wellness.  My deep passion for real food and exercise, and choosing to love yourself as you are.

SELF-LOVE.  The relationship you have with yourself.  How you talk to yourself.  Caring for yourself. Accepting yourself, faults and all.  When you shine, others do too.

HEALTHY FOOD. Eating in a way that brings your body and mind nourishment.

MOVEMENT.  Being kind to your body.  Discovering how it moves, it’s strengths, it’s


Want to know more about me?

I graduated from University with a degree in piano performance.  Though I no longer teach, I still enjoy listening to Classical music and playing the piano when I can!

I’ve loved playing sports from a young age, especially tennis and soccer.  In my 20s I got into running and so far I’ve ran three marathons, though now I’m sticking to 10k’s and maybe one day a half marathon again.

Total LOTR and Seinfeld fan.

My family eats what would be classified as a mainly vegan diet.  Most of my recipes reflect this diet, although there may occasionally be a good cheese mixed in.  (My husband is French and I am from the Dairy State, after all).

Adam and I met in our German class in Berlin, and got married in France three years later.

Once someone who avoided the kitchen at all costs, I now could spend hours cooking, reading about food and cooking, and talking about cooking!
