About Me

Welcome!

Hello! My name is Lindsay, and welcome to the little corner of my kitchen!

Here at Veggie Balance all of my recipes are gluten-free, healthy and (most importantly) heavily reliant on natural ingredients to make something delicious.

I should also mention that on top of lots of natural ingredients, all of my recipes must meet another key requirement: They must be easy and simple.

Simple ingredients and easy recipe instructions go hand in hand here in my kitchen. Massive ingredients and ten pages of instructions are the plague to me. Keep it simple my friends, for both my sanity and yours.

The Beginning of Veggie Balance:

I started Veggie Balance after years of battling a laundry list of health problems to take back control of my life.

Doctors were useless at figuring out what was wrong. I spent almost 7 years going from specialist to specialist with no resolution. Not once was my diet or food allergies discussed.

I needed a change and, more importantly, I wanted my life and my youth back.

Where I Am Now:

Today, I lead a completely gluten-free lifestyle and my body continually thanks me for it. I still need to watch my intake of sugar and processed foods as much as possible because my body does not thrive off it.

At one point, I was a vegetarian. I still struggle with consuming meat, but decided that after having to go gluten-free, I need to eat it for the calories and protein. All the meat and dairy I eat is clean, antibiotic-free, and grass-fed from a local farm. I believe we need to eat as basic and natural as possible.

Vegetables are a huge foundation in my diet, and a little dessert is a must. Hence, Veggie Balance. It’s all about balance. With this approach I’ve finally gained my life back.

Can you relate? Let’s become friends!

 

About Me - Veggiebalance.comAbout-Me

I am a 26 27 year old military wife. My husband (also known as R) is amazing and the love of my life. I’ll just go there and be corny by saying he is truly amazing, my best friend, and I fall more in love with him every day. We have a furry family with two cats, OB and Nealie, and one dog, Cooper, who I probably show off way too often on Snapchat. (Find me on Snapchat 🙂 Username: VeggieBalance)

Some of my favorite things include photographing desserts, eating said desserts, Mexican food, and running on a crisp cool morning.

Thanks for visiting. 🙂

    I too am what feels like constantly ill. I am a full time SPED teacher, military wife, and mom of two. I don’t have time to cook extravagant meals but try to stay healthy no matter what. I do get ill easily and I’m confident it has to do with anything I eat anymore. Reading over your recipes I feel my family will eat this too. I need healthy, gluten/dairy free, vegetarian meals that my teen and toddler both will eat.

    Hi! I met you at the Gluten Free Fair in Lansing, Michigan this year 2016. I bought your e-book and my mouth waters every time I see the pics. I read your about me page and I’m glad to see some one else with the same issues as me. I have medical problems and was tested for Celiac and it came back negative. However, my doctor suggested that I try the 21 Day Food Elimination Diet. Well after only a month I found I’m allergic to a lot of foods. I am going on 8 months of living GF and other eliminations. This is the first time in my whole life that I actually feel great and my medical problems have subsided drastically. Again, I can’t wait to try your recipes.

      Hi Jennifer! Such a great feeling to finally feel some control over how you feel! I even found certain foods that were gluten-free still made me sick, found out later it was because I have a genetic mutation called MTHFR! Always listen to your body.

      So glad to have you here. 🙂
