About Earthly Edible
Hi There! I'm Liz.
Welcome to Earthly Edible! I'm so glad you're here. Thanks for wanting to learn more about me and my path toward culinary balance.
It took years for me to start my 'health journey'. Before that, it was fast food at least twice a week, plus pizza, burgers, and anything else I could get my hands on, whenever I wanted. I looked alright on the outside, so I was healthy, right? No. Far from it.
My cholesterol was sky-high, which was a serious concern since it ran in my family. My skin was dull, with red splotches and breakouts nearly every other day. I drank a glass of milk with dinner every night, without fail, and gorged myself on the creamiest, stinkiest cheeses I could find every single weekend.
It took a drastic life change (watching a documentary and becoming vegan overnight) to help me backtrack my way to finding my happy place when it came to food. I wanted to eat well, feel good, but also enjoy going out to eat and experiencing new cuisines that weren't necessarily 'good for you'.
Fast forward to now. I eat a predominantly plant-based diet and really enjoy finding and creating delicious, satisfying meals that won't leave me wanting more. For me, it was all about striking that balance between maintaining true overall health while still enjoying that large pepperoni pizza, totally guilt-free.
My path may not necessarily jive with yours, and that's okay. Regardless of how you got here, I hope my story helps you find a balance, if that's what you're searching for. If you're just here for the recipes, awesome! Welcome. Feel free to plunk around - I hope you find what you're looking for :)
