Hi Loves! My name is Sara and I am the woman behind The Bettered Blondie. I have been creating healthy, easy and delicious home cooked meals in my kitchen for over 14 years. I am passionate about helping you make incredible meals that you can feel good about serving your family. My recipes have been featured in Shape, Men's Health, PopSugar and FabFitFun online publications. I do all the recipe development, photography and writing for The Bettered Blondie and it is my dream job!
Here are a few pictures of my family, I am happily married to my best friend. We met in high school and have been married for 14 years. My amazing firstborn Abigail is now 10 years old (she's growing so fast!). My miracle rainbow baby boy Samuel is now 5 years old. And our newest little addition, Owen is 7 months old! They are my life and my joy. I started this blog so that I could stop working 16 hour nursing shifts and spend more time with them. I never dreamed that this would become my full time job!
As for my weight loss journey, it has been a very up and down story, and I know many of you can relate to that. I was overweight as a little girl and it has been a struggle ever since then. I lost 60 pounds in 2017, but I had gained it back after some difficult struggles with my health. I am 2 months postpartum and am now continuing my journey towards losing over 100 lbs.
My goal is to share healthy recipes that still taste amazing. And with that, I want to encourage in whatever stage you may be in your personal journey towards health. I love you all so much,
