Who I Am
Hi and welcome to The Earthly Edit! My name is Lyndsey and I consider this delicious little corner of the internet to be my home. I am a self-taught home cook and baker, food photographer, and cat enthusiast. This past year I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles where I double majored in history and food studies. I also have a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell. I began working on The Earthly Edit as a creative outlet while I was working on my Masters in Organizational Leadership at Brandman University. As this was rather tedious work, blogging served as the perfect distraction.
While it may just be beginning, I have big plans for this site. Despite The Earthly Edit being little more than a glorified hobby at the current moment, I find myself dreaming big.
Though predominantly a place where people can come to find healthy, plant-based recipes, I like the idea that one day The Earthly Edit will also be home to more lifestyle-based content. This includes travel, zero-waste initiatives, and ethical fashion and beauty.
My dream is for this site to become a place where herbivores and omnivores alike can come to find a delicious meal or dessert to enjoy together, regardless of dietary restrictions. Also, seeing as I myself am trying to reduce my waste and impact on the planet, I would love for The Earthly Edit to function as a resource for others who are looking to do the same.
I am excited to share my journey on these fronts and document my learnings as I clumsily make my way through adult life and begin to navigate the professional world. You can also be sure that plenty of cat pictures will be included.
Thanks for reading!
