Cooking Full Circle was born in 2020 when the world shut down during Covid. I was documenting me and my boys cooking on Instagram as a way to share what we were making and show that it can be fun to cook with kids! My phone was constantly ringing and dinging with friends and family asking how I was cooking so much for my family with such limited ingredients. During that time, I also lost my job and took that as an opportunity to funnel my creative energy into something I loved: food!

Food has always been my love language. I have always found calm and purpose in the kitchen. I feel so humbled to be able to occupy a tiny corner of the internet and use it as a way to inspire busy parents to get healthy and delicious meals on the table for their family. I’m a big proponent of “use what you have” and this is something that carries through most of my dishes. I’m not a recipe girl, and I hope by showing my followers “methods vs. recipes,” I am empowering them to choose ingredients their families will eat–and get creative! Let’s get cooking!

Stride Physical Therapy & Wellness is a mobile physical therapy practice owned by Dr. Linda Van Leeuwen, PT, DPT. It was founded on the idea that people should be able to receive high quality physical therapy while making the process as efficient and convenient as possible. Being a mother of two young children herself, Linda understands how difficult it can be to take the time to invest in our own health. She also understands how frustrating it can feel to try to take care of our families when dealing with aches and pains. Being a mobile practice eliminates a patient’s travel time to and from a clinic, which makes it easier to fit into a busy lifestyle. Patients can focus on their treatment without the worry of finding childcare or interfering with their little ones’ nap times.

Therapy sessions are one on one with Linda and take place in the patient’s home. She brings a treatment table, exercise equipment, and modalities such as electric stimulation, ultrasound and laser to use as needed. Stride PT treats a variety of orthopedic conditions that include back and neck pain, post- surgery, joint pain, sprains, strains, and tendonitis, to name a few. New Jersey has Direct Access, which means that an individual can be seen for physical therapy without a doctor’s prescription. Everyone deserves to live a life that’s pain-free and without limitations. Stride PT is here to help you achieve just that.
