About Carolyn:

I'm the writer and recipe developer behind All Day I Dream About Food, a mostly low carb, gluten free food blog.  I have a Masters in Physical Anthropology and Human Evolution from Arizona State University and an extensive background in higher education administration.  I now work from home and parent three young children, and it’s hard to know which takes up more of my time, the children or the blog.

The way I see it, I didn’t choose the low carb lifestyle, it chose me.  After being diagnosed with gestational diabetes during my third pregnancy, I began watching my carb intake.  And when the diabetes decided to stick around, I refused to give up my lifelong passion for baking and cooking.  I just had to find new ways to do it.  To my delight, I have discovered that with a little ingenuity and some perseverance, many high carb recipes can be made over into low carb treats without sacrificing flavor. I’ve had quite a bit of success, with a few outright failures thrown in to keep me humble.

I started sharing recipes on my blog for fun, but it has quickly grown to be a serious commitment with many followers and readers.  All Day I Dream About Food is devoted to bringing readers creative, flavorful foods that are low in carbohydrates and suitable for diabetics and dieters alike.  Most of the recipes are also gluten-free. There are a handful of conventional flour-and-sugar recipes as well, as I enjoy indulging my friends and family once in a while.

About Suzanne:

Hi there! My name is Suzanne Ryan, and I have been on the Ketogenic Diet since January 13, 2015. I have been overweight most of my life, after failing at so many different methods to lose weight, I found keto and it has completely changed my life. I’m here to share my journey, encourage others and share tips and recipes!

I also have a YouTube channel and I post weight loss updates, recipes, reviews, grocery hauls, and other keto related content. Also, check out my first book, Simply Keto, which will guide you through the ins and out of keto with helpful tips on getting started and finding your own personal success. Simply Keto also has over 100 easy, real-life low carb recipes!

When I first started keto I weighed 289 pounds, my energy level and self-esteem were both at an all-time low. I felt tired and sick a lot of the time, thankfully the ketogenic diet has turned my life around. After being ketogenic for one year I was able to naturally lose 100 lbs! I’m currently down 121 lbs, and I couldn’t be happier with this lifestyle!

About Laura Lea: 

I'm a Certified Holistic chef, recipe developer and writer. I’m rooted firmly in my hometown of Nashville, TN, and in my opinion, this is the best city on earth.

10 years ago, I couldn’t have dreamed that those sentences might apply to me. By then, I had graduated with a B.A. in English Lit from the University of Virginia and been swept along in the mass-exodus to New York City. Very quickly, I found myself listless and enormously anxious, slogging away at a corporate job that I didn’t enjoy. I also became disillusioned with the social routine of late nights and hungover, greasy brunches, which seemed to get so many people through the workweek.

I decided to OPT OUT of the way I’d been living my life in the city. And I found myself alone all of a sudden…a lot. I hadn’t quite mastered the art of “table for one”, and my wallet wasn’t fond of dining out anyhow, so I started to occupy my time with cooking. Food had always been a joyous, comforting and steadfast part of my life. My mother is a fabulous cook and I grew up with family dinner over cozy from-scratch meals. In my NYC loneliness, cooking felt like the perfect way to fill the void.

On a tight budget and surrounded by gorgeous farmers’ markets, I started making vegetables the main attraction in my meals. Proteins and healthy fats were essential elements, but they often took the form of beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Over time, I began to notice my emotional and physical health improving. I had more energy, a clearer head, and my anxiety had reduced dramatically. Though I wasn’t (and am not) vegetarian, I was fascinated by the far-reaching, holistic benefits of plant-based food.

One day, I quite nearly stumbled upon a school called the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood. A nationally certified culinary school focused on health-supportive cooking? No folks, it wasn’t too good to be true! As soon as I stepped inside, I knew I’d found my future.

I hustled and finagled my work situation to accommodate their part-time school program, and then I hustled and squeezed every bit of experience from my year at the Natural Gourmet. Besides saying YES to my husband, choosing NGI was the best decision of my life. During their 11-month program, I was trained in classical knife skills, sanitation and safety, but I also took extensive classes on the relationship between food and healing.

When I graduated in July, 2013, my heart and mind were full and determined to spread the world of holistic health in my hometown of Nashville. My family goes back in Nashville for generations, and my ancestors founded several institutions that still exist today. This city is in my blood, and I knew I needed to start with this community in sharing my food.

Nashville is a growing, thriving metropolis, but it’s also still a small town that holds tight to tradition…including biscuits, gravy and a lotta pork. Don’t get me wrong—the goal of LL Balanced is NOT to uproot or diminish the biscuit/caramel cake Nashville of my childhood. Goodness, no!!! Instead, my goal is to offer healthier versions of Southern classics and introduce new ideas about food, so that we can have our caramel cake and eat it too. As a fiancé to the love of my life and a career-woman, I know how difficult it is to provide balanced meals for yourself and your family. It’s easy to default to packaged, processed food, but that is only going to take you further down the rabbit hole of ill health and away from simple, wonderful REAL FOOD.

You need somewhere to start, and you’ve found it. On LL Balanced, you will find affordable, comforting, often make-ahead meals that are packed with nutrients and flavor. My hope is that my recipe will impact every aspect of your health, from weight goals to managing allergies to improving your relationships. Better yet if they inspire you to get out there and start creating some delicious, satisfying real-food dishes of your own!

There is a way to enjoy nutritious food without feeling deprived, stressed or uprooted from your childhood favorites…and it’s right here! Thanks for stopping by LL Balanced, I hope y’all stay a while!

Train with Dave: http://davescottinc.com

Questions for Dave? "Ask The Man" here: http://davescottinc.com/ask-the-man/

About Dave Scott: 

In 1980, Dave Scott went to the island of Oahu to race the third ever Ironman Triathlon. In both 1978 and 1979, there were 15 starters and 12 finishers. After an article on the event appeared in Sports Illustrated in the spring of 1979, the number of entries ballooned up to 108 in 1980, which would be the last year the event was held on Oahu.

Dave Scott was an unknown that day in February of 1980, but after ABC’s Wide World of Sports showcased Dave’s journey around the island of Oahu where he led the entire day and broke the existing course record by nearly two hours, that changed pretty quickly.

In many sports, the winners from the early years quickly become yesterday’s news as faster athletes bypass the trailblazers.

Not Dave Scott. He was the Roger Bannister of triathlon. Over the next 16 years he won five more Ironman World Championship titles, became the first athlete to go under 3:00 hours for the Ironman marathon, then the first to go under 2:55 and the first to go under 2:50. He was also the first person to go under 10 hours, 9 hours and 8:30 in Kona.

Dave continued to push the limits of what the human body could do at the Ironman when he and Mark Allen, on October 14, 1989, had a race for the ages where they were never more than a few feet apart from each other for over 138 miles.

That race is known simply as IRONWAR, a term I coined after having the privilege of watching Dave Scott and Mark Allen simply destroy Dave’s course record, which he’d set in 1986.

Dave went 8:10:13 that day and broke his course record by over 18 minutes. He ran a 2:41:03 marathon, which was over eight minutes faster that his run course record. Mark Allen earned his first Ironman victory the hard way: He beat Dave Scott on the greatest day Dave ever had on the Big Island.

Then, after taking five years off from Ironman because of injuries and attending to the needs of his new family, Dave Scott changed perceptions again by coming back in 1994 at the age of 40 and finished second overall. Two years later, at the age of 42, he added to his legacy by posting a 2:45:20 marathon and running himself into an amazing fifth place overall.

Over a span of 16 years and ten Hawaii Ironman races, he won six times, placed second on three occasions and—at the age of 42—crossed the line in fifth place.

Dave Scott’s personal triathlon journey paralleled the early history of the Ironman Triathlon. His accomplishments on the Big Island of Hawaii led to Dave Scott becoming the very first inductee into the Ironman Triathlon Hall of Fame.

About Matt:

No Meat Athlete was founded in 2009 by Matt Frazier, at about the same time he went vegetarian. Six months later, Matt qualified for the Boston Marathon with a time of 3:09:59 at the Wineglass Marathon, over 100 minutes faster than his first marathon time seven years prior.

Since then, Matt has run several 50-mile ultramarathons and in 2013 ran his first 100-miler at Burning River in Ohio.

When he’s not running, cooking, or blogging, Matt enjoys martial arts, reading, gambling, music, and brewing beer. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina with his wife, two children, and two rescued dogs.

About Pixie:

My name is Pixie, and I’m a registered associate nutritionist (ANutr) (MSc), award-winning food blogger, writer, and speaker.

I eat a plant-based/vegetarian diet, using the scientific definition of plant-based meaning ‘a diet based on plants’, not necessarily a diet solely consisting of plants. This is deliberately vague as I don’t really believe in labeling myself or restricting myself if I want a good old-fashioned burger and fries! Food should not only make you healthy but needs to taste good and make you happy, otherwise what really is the point?

My food journey has taken me from stereotypical college student (think frozen ready meals), to cutting out every food group I could think of in a pursuit of health (no meat, fish, eggs, dairy, soy, gluten, refined sugar, or joy), to now having a much more balanced and happy approach to food and health.

I am a scientist and a skeptic, so I don’t believe in alternative medicine, or that diet changes can cure everything. That’s just not how the human body works. I do have a passion for helping people to improve their scientific literacy and be more skeptical about the advice circulating online (spoiler alert: 90% of it is BS), and I intend to use it.

As a nutritionist, I work with clients on improving their relationships with food using non-diet approaches. I’m an advocate for Health At Every Size, so you won’t find any diet culture crap here.

About Rebecca: 

My husband and I joke that she is our "third baby". We have two real children, ages 2 and 4. Indeed, writing BODY KINDNESS has been a labor of love for the last few years of my life.

It's very personal and important work. Too many of us have suffered at the relentless pressure to diet and strive for a perfect body. There was a time when I thought weight loss pursuits were health pursuits. Life experience and scientific research taught me otherwise.

Now, I'm dedicated to creating a world where we respect all bodies just as they are. For those of us who are health experts, we need to get back into caring for the whole person. We need to support the behavior and not the scale. We need more love and empathy and a lot less shame.

There is a better way to a healthy well-being. I believe Body Kindness is it. When I'm not passionately fighting diet culture, I am probably exercising, cooking with my girls, reading, or dreaming about a beach vacation.

About May:

I was born in the Indian state of Kerala, locally known as “God’s Own Country” and named by National Geographic Traveler as one of the “ten paradises in the world” because of its natural beauty, tropical climate and varied topography. In Kerala, recognized as the spice center of the world, my family are spice merchants of Syrian Christian descent. Growing up in India, I was always fascinated by the diversity of cultures in America and had an American Dream of my own:  to come to the United States and build my life here.

 To prepare, I studied Mathematics and Computer Science (ultimately, earning a Master’s Degree).  I was hired as a knowledge engineer, brought to the United States and became an executive in the financial industry. Throughout my professional endeavors, I maintained my fascination with cultural diversity always centered around food, particularly the spices associated with my family and its spice estates. Coming from a tradition where fresh foods are prepared in seasonally appropriate, wholesome and gourmet manners,

I wanted to share that wisdom with my friends in the West. In search of different cuisines, I received hands-on training sessions with well-known chefs and other top culinary professionals from around the world.  My son has food allergy issues and, after I realized that processed foods were the root cause of his health issues, I researched and endeavored to make all food in a non-processed way. As a result, I have seen a significant improvement in his health and I am thrilled that he can lead a very active and normal life.

About Simone:

Simone Miller first set foot on the culinary scene two decades ago but her passion for extraordinary food stems back to early childhood, where she began to learn from one of the best kitchens in America – her mother’s.  Miller pursued her passion and began to fine tune her skills working in top New York and Connecticut area-restaurants.  In 2007, Miller relocated to San Francisco, where she continued to develop her distinct style and build her career as a personal chef while simultaneously launching a catering company (Zenbelly).  Upon the success of Zenbelly, Miller soon developed a reputation as an elite gourmet chef.

After having battled with a variety of health problems following the launch of Zenbelly, Miller discovered she had food allergies, specifically a very serious sensitivity to gluten. Ethically, Miller would not serve food – without first being a test subject-  and at that point, Zenbelly transformed into one of the most respected gluten-free, paleo-style catering company in the Bay Area.  Miller’s mission was simple: to offer healthy alternatives without sacrifice to quality and flavor.  Miller diligently worked on adapting her gourmet recipes and much to her delight – she found great success and her palate-pleasing recipes soon impressed the most discriminating of tastes.

Miller also augmented her website offering chef’s perspective to paleo recipes on her blog. There, she shares her grain-free recipes that have made believers out of some of the most die-hard gluten eaters, and has encouraged countless people to roll up their sleeves and have fun creating simple, delicious, healthy food.

In 2014, Miller released her first and very successful cookbook, The Zenbelly Cookbook, shortly thereafter, she co-authored The New Yiddish Kitchen, which hit shelves in March of 2016.  Her third book, Paleo Soups & Stews, released in October 2016 is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

About Wired To Eat:

Wired To Eat explains how more willpower and better discipline are not the missing pieces to health and fat loss. Our genetics are working against us in the modern world of super tasty foods. In this new book you will learn about neuroregulation of appetite and how hyperpalatable foods can bypass our built in “off switch”, causing us to eat far more than we otherwise would. The genes that made our ancestors successful are setting us up for troubles today. You will learn how sleep, gut health, stress, exercise and community can work with or against our goals of health and leanness.

With Wired To Eat you’ll embark on a program to rewire your appetite and regain your health. We will start with a 30 Day Reset that will normalize the neuroregulation of appetite and help us not only to eat the right amount, but also begin to appreciate simple but delicious meals. After the 30 Day Reset we will use the 7 Day Carb Test to map what specific carbohydrate foods we do best (and worst) with. This will move us beyond one-size-fits-all dietary dogma and into the modern world of Personalized Nutrition.

Wired To Eat includes over 60 whole-food recipes and includes meal plans for the 30 Day Reset as well as for autoimmune and ketogenic diets.
