Welcome to

Life Around The Table

a blog based on sharing healthy recipes, finding naturally sweet alternatives and slowing down as we gather around the table.

Hi! I’m Christy, I believe in reaching for whole foods, fermented foods, full fat dairy products and sneaking nutrient packed egg yolks into my diet whenever possible. I bake with healthy fats, healthy flours such as buckwheat, spelt and rye and natural sweeteners like coconut sugar, dates, honey and maple syrup without sacrificing taste. I believe food should be incredibly delicious, deeply nourishing and enjoyed in good company. Welcome to my blog! I hope you find recipes you’ll cherish for years to come!
