Welcome to the community!
We’re here to provide Simple, Seasonal, and Sustainable recipes, zero waste and natural living tips, green travel guides and expert nutrition insights. We hope you’ll find inspiration here to help you slow down, cook more, nourish your body and reduce waste.
Our goal is to provide an alternative approach to food. An approach that relies on simple, seasonal and sustainable recipes and a slower, low-waste approach to life. Plant-based Low-Waste.
As a dietitian, I truly believe that food is medicine. The foods we choose to eat have an immense impact on our lives as well as the planet. Though we’re far from perfect, in The Crooked Carrot household, we strive to eat seasonally, mostly plant-based and delicious meals! We also work to reduce our waste and do our part to take care of the one planet we call home. We do this by:
- Choosing real, whole foods: responsibly grown, in season, that nourishes both your body and the planet
- Connecting with the world around us: exploring nature, traveling and learning about other cultures in an eco-friendly way.
- Living intentionally: practicing mindfulness, avoiding harmful products and practicing self-care so we can help others – after all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
- Reducing waste: Using reusable products, reducing consumption, implementing simple practices to reduce our overall waste, especially food.
We aren’t here just to share recipes, but to inspire and encourage you to start making changes to cultivate a slow and sustainable approach to food and life. Read more about The Crooked Carrot and the two Midwestern kids behind it HERE.

We love to travel and explore new places, but also acknowledge the difficulty in living a healthy and low waste life while on the move. We share ways to stay healthy while traveling, guides for what to eat and where to go, and how to practice eating well and reducing waste while traveling.
