Meet Loredana Lombardo, Age 56

‘I started to cook as a form of therapy, and it became my new passion.’  

With the unfortunate loss of her mother, followed by a painful divorce, Loredana was searching for a way to nourish her body and mind. That’s when she decided to follow her mother’s path and learn to share the same love and passion she had for cooking. Raised in an Italian family, passion for food, family and cooking played a major role in her everyday life. “Some of my fondest memories of my mom and of my childhood stem from our time in the kitchen. My mom was and still is the person that influences me the most in the kitchen.” 

Although she was hesitant that it was too late to learn and grow her culinary skills at this stage in her life, she found that trying new recipes kept her mind off the painful and traumatic events she experienced. Not only did cooking provide her with better nourishment, but also helped her get through those difficult times. It became a form of healing therapy, representing an act of care and love, allowing Loredana to express her appreciation and gratitude to those around her. She started to understand her mother’s passion for cooking and felt grateful to share this feeling with her.

With practice, time, and dedication, Loredana prides herself on comforting others through cooking and it has become her new happy place! She is now remarried to a man who understands her passion for cooking, proudly raises her family with two very different culinary experiences and always happy to share a meal with friends and family.

Loredana supports her healthy lifestyle by taking daily vitamins that she knows is important at this stage in her life to provide her with the energy to do what she loves most—with the people she loves the most. Watch the video to learn more about Loredana’s story and what being 50+ means to her.
