about the blog:

Painted Fork is a food blog that is a collection of taste-tested, boyfriend-approved recipes ranging from conventional to paleo to vegan, and everything in between. There’s only one standard here: it can’t be overly complicated and can’t use any absurd ingredients that you can’t find at your local grocer.

about the author:

Hey, that’s me — Heather! I’ve been running a food blog for a few years and it’s become one of my favorite hobbies. I also love to be creative with painting, drawing, graphic design, and photography. That’s how this blog got the name “Painted Fork” … creativity + food = Painted Fork. Not bad, eh?

I make a lot of food that’s meant for the athletic folks (ie: energy bars, protein-packed-whatevers…) because my S/O is a competitive athlete. Together, we try to make meals and snacks that are filled with wholesome ingredients, great flavors and are easy enough to make on a weeknight. If it doesn’t fit those standards, it doesn’t happen on this blog.

I love to take classic foods and un-junk them so that we can have a nutrient-dense version to enjoy. I also love finding new ways to use products that I’ve already got in my pantry to make food we feel good about putting into our bodies.

I also plan to do some posting on crafts, diy, etc… cause I like that kind of stuff and I have a feeling you guys might like that stuff too.
