Creator of Tall Hungry Girl

Meet Tahira Hayes, Founder of Tall Hungry Girl.

I’m a communications specialist by day and freelance writer, columnist and content strategist by night.

Tall Hungry Girl (or Boy—I haven’t forgotten about the men) is not just a playful slogan, but also a way of living. It means to stay hungry for life and actively and tenaciously pursue new experiences through travel, food, and healthy living.

I’m constantly looking for ways to learn, grow and share that knowledge with others in the process. This site is my platform for doing just that.

All recipes (except the zucchini) are dairy free, and you can easily make that dairy free by removing the parmesan.

Here’s what I made:
