Welcome to VeggieBalance!
Nice to meet you! I’m Lindsay, published author of The Easy Gluten-Free Cookbook and professional digital publisher. For years we tirelessly focused and did research on food to take back my health and really dove into nutrition and what foods does for our bodies.
But over the years of nutritional research that has turned into our environment effecting our food and transitioned how our our lifestyle choices effect our world as a whole. It is all connected.
I have felt really strongly about the lifestyle choices we make as a society and how it impacts our environment for years and therefore our mission is to share small changes we can make, whether that be food, food waste (hello vermicomposting), small space gardening to grow your own food and overall how to reduce our carbon footprint to make an impact and doing our part in the world.
Rome was not built in a day and we are not going to be able to tackle something so immense as global warming within a day either so here at VeggieBalance we are all about tackling how we can make a difference, individually.
Here at VeggieBalance it’s all in the name – VEGGIE BALANCE.
We have recipes to fit Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy-Free, Plant-based with the occasional meat recipe. But most important it is heavily reliant on natural ingredients to make something delicious.
I should also mention that on top of lots of natural ingredients, all of our recipes must meet another key requirement: They must be easy and simple.
Simple ingredients and easy recipe instructions go hand in hand here in our kitchen. Massive ingredients and ten pages of instructions are the plague to us. Keeping it simple my friends, for both my sanity and ours.
We don’t believe in a strict militarian lifestyle WITH ANYTHING.
Do we believe that as a society we need to eat less meat? YES.
Do we believe that we should find simple ways to change our everyday life to help prevent global warming? YES.
Do we believe that everyone is on their own journey into this lifestyle? YES.
We are not about shaming anyone who might eat a few meat dishes or eat dairy. What is important to remember is we are all on our own individual journey in this world and the fact that you are here means you are aware and making changes and that should NEVER be shamed.
The Beginning of Veggie Balance:
Veggie Balance started after years of battling a laundry list of health problems to take back control of our life. I dove into medical journals, research and studies regarding nutrition.
Where I Am Now:
Today, we 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 with my other autoimmune diseases.
My husband and I currently are living in Ireland which has taken us into the route of figuring out ways to be sustainable while living in a small space like a city. It is 100% possible and something I’m really excited to share with you here.
We all know that meat (especially beef) is terrible for our environment so we’ve transitioned to homemade vegetarian meat substitutes or consume it here and there and hope our resources can help with answering the questions on, ‘How to reduce carbon footprint?’
We are all about balance here and a relaxed community all looking for ideas and inspiration on how we can do our part in the world.
