About

I know you.

You want to be healthier. You want to eat better without sacrificing delicious foods. Your budget and fancy-pants stores don’t mix. You don’t want fast food, yet there are errands to run and things to take care of and you need your food, fast. And most importantly: you’re a real, true person trying to do the best you can to take care of yourself or your family.

You’re in the right place.

Who are we?

Welcome to Homegrown & Healthy, a collaboration that has been rapidly growing since it was created in 2011. My name is Aubrey and I fancy myself a curator, scouting the internet for fresh, healthy, even-you-can-do-this ideas and occasionally throwing my own recipes and crafts into the mix. Every day I get to work with amazing bloggers from around the globe to give you the tools you need for culinary and domestic success without the burden of elitism.

Look around

Join us in our kitchen for raw, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and whole food options. Tummy rumbling but not sure what you’re in the mood for? Start with our featured category for our most popular picks, sure to please the whole family.

Or maybe you’re in the mood for housekeeping? We have ideas for DIY projects and crafts that reduce money spent as well as your carbon foot print. We have tips on everything from skin care to cleaning products. Best of all you won’t have to travel to a fancy schmancy specialty store to whip up these goodies!

And if you just can’t resist the call of the outdoors, step into our backyards and peruse our gardening topics like foraging for wild edibles and learning about herbs.
