Welcome to A Cultivated Living, where my life in design and my love of cooking meet. I’m Joanna, a designer, creator, cook, and gardener living in Vermont. Here I share inspiration and recipes for a healthy home, garden, and life… focusing on delicious, shareable low carb and keto meals.
The truth is, when I changed my eating two years ago it changed my life.
I have always eaten healthy(ish). I have been a pescatarian for well over a decade and have (thankfully) lived a very healthy life… But…
I have suffered from migraines monthly for most of my adult life, and if you’ve ever had a migraine you know just how much that sucks. I tried all the things… the prescriptions, supplements, you name it, nothing really worked.⠀
Then one day I thought to research the keto diet. I read the book Ketotarian by Dr Will Cole and a lot of what he said made sense. I believe that inflammation leads to many of our illnesses and pain and that the keto diet can mitigate much of that. So I decided to jump in and give it a try. (Like immediately, and then when I realized how many carbs were in the coffee I had just finished I knew I had a lot to learn.)
The result: I haven’t had a migraine since. It has truly changed my life.
Along the way I found that there was a lot to learn about the Keto lifestyle and that there was something missing… I wanted to eat the same beautiful, inspired, healthy, delicious meals I always had, and be able to share them with friends and family. ⠀
A Cultivated Living: My Hope
This is what has led me to create A Cultivated Living, to share what I have learned, to create low carb recipes that anyone would love, and to continue my journey creating and cultivating a healthy home, garden, and life.⠀
I wish the same health and happiness for you… and I hope that I can help you reach it. If you are interested I hope you follow along, I’d love to share this journey with you. Say hello in the comments below!
