Welcome to Hummusapien! I'm Alexis Joseph, a food writer, blogger, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), new mama, and co-founder of local restaurant group, Alchemy Brands. This is my happy place!
Hummusapien is a multifaceted food, wellness, and lifestyle brand created in 2011 in order to inspire others to eat happy and live fully balanced.
I use my passion for cooking and wellness as fuel to help others ignite a more freeing relationship with food. Through years of experience coaching individual clients, consulting with food brands, and conceptualizing restaurants, I combine approachable recipes with nutrition education to bring peace and joy back to the table.
I like to eat plants and I love to eat chocolate croissants. I’m a fierce believer in making healthy absolutely delish. Check out This Is My Story, How I Became the Eater I Want to Be, and my FAQ page for more about my journey!
When I’m not blogging, you can find me at Alchemy! Alchemy is collection of wellness-inspired restaurants with two locations and a meal delivery service. I co-founded Alchemy with A&R Creative Group in 2014.
I help with all things yummy food, including business development, menu creation, operations, marketing, nutrition services, and beyond.
