10 Facts about Me:

  1. Hi, I’m Lindsay!  I grew up in a small town just outside of Los Angeles.  After HIgh School, I traveled by myself throughout Europe and lived in London for six months, while staying at youth hostels with crazy but incredibly fun Australians.
  2. My British husband and I met online in an AOL chatroom back in ’96 when the Internet was getting started.  I knew he was “the one” and after 6 months, I moved in with him, and almost a year later we were married living in London.  We lived there for four years and I loved every minute of it (except for the weather and missing my family.
  3. I never imagined myself having children, but when I saw my son’s face for the first time, I’ve never felt such overwhelming love for a person before.  He is the best thing that has ever happened to me!  I really believe that children are here to teach us, as much as we are here to teach them.
  4. I started this blog back in July with the purpose of helping others get healthy but it has actually been like sharing my own food journal and weight loss journey.  I was overweight and unhealthy post pregnancy and decided to take charge of my healthy for me.  I have lost more than 20 pounds (and inches) by just eating real food and working out (hard) for at least a half hour everyday.  Now I am passionate about helping others do the same by simply inspiring you to cook with healthy ingredients.
  5. I am currently a stay at home mom but prior to mom life, I was in Human Resources helping people get along at work.  I feel skill has helped me in dealing with children as well.
  6. I have a ceramic obsession and I love bowls.
  7. I have had pretty much every hair color under the sun.
  8. I went to a local culinary school 15 years ago with the intention of starting my own catering company but got distracted with helping people get along at work.  (see #5)
  9. I love wine and chocolate.
  10. I almost always wear black.
