My story

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky but made my way to Austin, Texas a little over 7 years ago and haven’t left since! I love calling Texas home.

If I’m not spending my time developing recipes in the kitchen or meal prepping, you’ll find me out on a run on Town Lake Trail or at a local coffee shop. Or simply soaking up all the pup snuggles. 

I found my love for cooking when I was in college and it grew beyond that when I started to live on my own after school. I worked in a corporate job that often meant long hours and that’s when I started to meal prep so I had healthy meals easily ready.

I spent many years in my early 20’s on diets, restrictive eating, and an unhealthy relationship with food. It took years and a lot of work, but I found a balance where I can enjoy all foods and I love sharing recipes that don’t include any labels, restrictions, or diets.

What you will find on this blog

I started One Balanced Life back in 2017 and this blog came not too long after that! I find so much joy in cooking. I believe that food can not only fuel you but bring so much happiness too. You can find just about everything on here (besides baking, I leave that up to others ;)) and everything is made with minimal ingredients, not a lot of time to prepare and so delicious.

Whether you’re trying to explore more plant-based recipes or looking to consume more healthier meals, there is something here for everyone

Seeing these recipes in your homes fills my soul. I hope you enjoy One Balanced Life recipes as much as I love creating them for you. 

Thank you for stopping by! I’d love to be friends. You can find me over on Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest too!

If you have any questions, ideas, or just need some reassurance, feel free to send me a message!
