Healthy Eats. Sweet Treats.

About Me

Hi, I’m Ashley!

A food crazy, fitness enthusiast, high energy home cook who loves to spend her free time in the kitchen creating new recipes, and putting my own creative twist on existing ones. Join me on my adventure to healthy eats, and sweet treats.

Welcome to Food is Life!

I’m a small town girl living in central Ontario, with my husband Jordan and fur baby Bentley, the cocker spaniel. Jordan is quality control, number one taste-tester, and is usually always on cleanup duty. I’m great at making messes in the kitchen, and terrible at cleaning them up.

To me proper nutrition is key to leading a happy, healthy life. Saying that, I am a cheese addict, have a love for Prosecco, and a weakness for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.

I’m constantly trying new recipes and developing my own dishes to make them wholesome and nutritious, because healthy food can be is delicious!  I always try to cook with the freshest ingredients, avoid the use of highly processed ingredients, and do my best to buy organic when it’s available. I love supporting local businesses, and every Saturday morning you will find me at the farmer’s market, rain or shine. I could probably live in a cheese store if someone let me, and spend hours, or perhaps days in grocery stores.

Blogging has been a dream of mine for ages, and thanks to my amazing and supportive husband, I finally jumped in with both feet and entered the blogging world. Now I have endless opportunities to share my passion for food, recipes, and my experiments in the kitchen.

On this site you will find a variety of recipes to accommodate all diets – vegetarian, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, low-carb, and lots of sweet treats for that person with the sweet tooth. So take a look around, feel free to leave a comment or two, and happy eating!
