About

Hey there, I’m so glad you stopped by. I’m Leah, a 33-year-old mama of two girls (3-year-old Emma and 10-month-old Jordyn) living in South Florida.

I’m a mother first (and a wife too, hi Josh!) but my other “baby” is this blog. I started Leah’s Plate in 2015 because I found that when I ate healthy, real food, I felt so much better—and I wanted to share that passion and learning with the world. When I became a mother, making sure my girls ate healthy, real food became a priority for me, so sharing kid-friendly healthy foods (and other wellness-focused aspects of motherhood) is a huge focus of mine as well.

It wasn’t an easy decision, but I eventually decided that I needed to “start over” in a new environment that would enable me to live a healthy lifestyle and get to a better place both physically and emotionally. So I packed up my bags and moved to sunny South Florida, where I truly began my wellness journey.

It wasn’t an easy decision, but I eventually decided that I needed to “start over” in a new environment that would enable me to live a healthy lifestyle and get to a better place both physically and emotionally. So I packed up my bags and moved to sunny South Florida, where I truly began my wellness journey.

I started by cooking simple, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients that didn’t take a lot of time to make. I also started doing yoga a few times a week and was thrilled to find that it calmed my body and mind in a whole new way. I even became passionate about non-toxic and organic beauty and household products! The changes in how I felt were pretty immediate—the brain fog lifted and I became a happier, more confident person.

These days, my goal is to help people realize that eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated for you or your kids. I create quick and simple recipes that require clean, minimal ingredients because I’m a busy mom who doesn’t have hours to spend in the kitchen. I want people to know they, too, can live a busy lifestyle without sacrificing health—and that they can make that happen for their family, too. I also love proving that healthy can be delicious!

I hope you enjoy my blog! Always feel free to comment on my posts with any questions or comments. I’ll always do my best to get back to you! Xo
