About

 

Hello, friend. 

I'm glad you're here.

 

 

My name is Emily and, like you, I like good, healthy food, that's easy to make and fun to eat. 

I started this blog in early 2016 to encourage my transition to eating healthier - more fruit, vegetables, and whole foods. I'm a work in progress, but I believe in Michael Pollan's recommendation to "eat real food, not too much, and mostly plants." With that in mind I'll try to feature healthy recipes that are delicious and easy to make. Sometimes, I'll have a decadent recipe for you, but I'll always look for ways to make it a little healthier and less processed. 

I grew up in Indiana and Doha, Qatar. I've also lived in Jordan, China, and the United Arab Emirates. So a lot of my food is inspired by either the Midwest or Middle East. I like to try new ingredients and get inspired at the farmer's market, but I know the importance of a quick weeknight meal. I recently moved back to the US and I live right outside Chicago. 

If you'd like to stay in touch, you can find me on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest. I hate Twitter, but I have an account, so if it's your thing, you can find me there as well. I've been featured on sites like: FoodGawkerFinding VeganTastespottingOh My VeggiesShapeHuffington PostFitnessThe Every Girl, Pure Wow, Feed Feed, Esquire, and Buzzfeed
