Hi There! I’m Alexis.

Welcome to Hummusapien, a multifaceted food, wellness, and lifestyle brand created in 2011 in order to inspire others to eat happy and live fully. This is the corner of the internet that gives me life.

I like plants. A lot. Both in my home and in my belly.

I also like chocolate croissants. I’m a fierce believer in joy, in seeing the world, in salted dark chocolate, in sarcasm, in diversity, in the power of passion, in confidence, in balance, in living a life of purpose, in inspiring others to embrace their best self, and in making healthy damn delicious.

My goal is to help my individual clients, food brands, and restaurants foster a more nourishing relationship with food.

Here are a few of my favorite posts:

Our Home Renovation

When I’m not behind my computer, I’m at Alchemy, an all-day-café with two locations here in Columbus that I co-founded with A&R Creative Group in 2014.

I oversee business development, menu creation, operations, marketing, nutrition services, and beyond. We opened our second location, Alchemy Kitchen, in Grandview last spring 2018.

When I’m not functioning as a restauranteur or food blogger, I’m working with women who struggle with disordered eating to help them ditch dieting and live a nourished, full, delicious life.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
