My Name is Christy
Welcome to Life Around the Table
a blog based on sharing healthy recipes, practicing hospitality and slowing down as we gather around the table.
Hi! I’m Christy, a happy wife and mother to three boys, a nutritionist, a food lover and a Canadian. Creating and experimenting in the kitchen is my idea of an afternoon well spent. To me, a clean kitchen is an empty canvas of possibility and that means my kitchen never stays clean for long. My dream is that one or more of the recipes I share here will inspire you, perhaps even becoming a cherished family favourite. Creating a space where your family, friends and neighbours feel comfortable, valued and heard is worthwhile work. Please join me on my search for delicious recipes, pursuing opportunities for hospitality and living a slower life.
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 spelt and rye and natural sweeteners like coconut sugar, honey and maple syrup without sacrificing taste. However! That doesn’t mean the occasional indulgence won’t sneak in. Life is about balance after all.
