Hello, I’m Ellen

 Hey I’m Elle and I’m working towards a basically healthy life. In the past I viewed being ‘healthy’ as black or white, it was something I was or I wasn’t. Today, I’m working towards striking a balance between a healthy and happy life.

Over a year ago I realized that working in a corporate HR world was unfulfilling, so I left my job to go back to school to become a registered dietitian and pursue my passion for nutrition.

While taking dietitian courses, I launched a fermented salad dressing company and fell in love with making and sharing healthier versions of food. Realizing that clinical work was not my jam, I shifted my focus to developing recipes and products that help people live healthier lives.  

My mission is to help everyone live a long and healthy life, without worry and stress about what to eat every day. I started this blog as a way to deepen my own knowledge and understanding, and I hope it can become a space for yourself and others to share your own journeys towards a basically healthy life.
