Introducing Lauren Atkins – Food Blogger

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce Lauren Atkins as a guest blogger on AnthroPhysique. Lauren is a fellow Evernote Ambassador (Home Cooking).  In her spare time, she runs a food blog (Have Fork, Will Eat), studies gastronomy, and cooks and bakes as much as possible.  She loves to help other home cooks use Evernote and other tools to make their time in the kitchen as delicious and efficient as possible. Lauren will be posting here once a month to offer some great tips, recipes, and guidance for all things food and kitchen.

A few words from Lauren:

Lauren - food blogger

Lauren Atkins,
Have Fork, Will Eat

Hi all!  I am so excited to be doing guests posts on Chad’s site!  It’s full of inspiration and ideas for anyone trying to live a healthy lifestyle, and Chad is an amazing person and resource.  

I know that eating healthfully can seem like a big challenge, especially when you’re busy, you’re short on time and you have a giant sweet tooth.  I hope that with a few of my recipes and kitchen tips, you’ll see that it’s easier than you think, and delicious to boot.  I always thought that you are what you eat, so be both real and delicious.

As a bit of an intro to me, I’m just a few weeks shy of 30, married, no kids but two very spoiled dogs (an English Mastiff and a Shar-pei Basset).  By day, I’m an instructional technologist at the University of Michigan, because I love technology and I love helping people learn.  I know how hard it can be to work all day and then have to come home and cook dinner.  I also know how difficult it is to have a crazy schedule and still eat right during the day.  But it can be done!    

My favorite daily meals are simple, with just a few ingredients but a lot of satiety, though I have a soft spot for American comfort foods.  I like to experiment, and will make pretty much anything on request just to see if I can.  My goal is to have an efficient, organized kitchen and pantry, where quality raw food goes in one end and delicious meals come out the other.  I’ll stop now before I ramble about it too much but in future posts, I hope I can answer some of your questions and share great recipes and tips.  I’d also love to hear about your favorite foods, cooking methods or any questions you might have.

Please post any questions you have for Lauren in the comments below, or share what challenges you experience for keeping meals healthy.
