Hi there and welcome!
I’m Kelly, the writer, photographer, cook, baker, and recipe developer behind this blog.
Life Made Sweeter is a trusted source for well-tested healthier, gluten free, low carb, keto and paleo recipes, reaching over 3 million readers each month and over 1 million+ combined social followers.
Kelly’s recipes have been published on The Today Show, Food Network, Cooking Light, Better Homes & Gardens, Huffington Post, Country Living and more. You can check out the entire list here.
Kelly has been following a low-carb / ketogenic lifestyle since December 2016 to help battle various autoimmune and gut issuses she developed after having her youngest daughter.
Because of this, most of the newer recipes we share tend to be lower in carbs or include substitutions if you are following a keto or paleo diet.
However, since the rest of her family members are not on a paleo or keto diet, you will still find family favorite recipes with a focus on Asian, Instant Pot, slow cooker and one pot / pan / skillet dishes. Many of these work well for Sunday meal prepping to help take the stress away from that 5 pm dinner rush.
I am a mom of two and married to my high school sweetheart.
I grew up with two foodie parents who both cooked freshly prepared meals almost every evening.
I am also a self-taught baker and got caught with the baking bug shortly after having my son in 2011. He is the reason why life was made sweeter and inspires many of my creations.
- I am a big veggie lover and am always trying to sneak more veggies into my kids and meat-loving husband’s meals
- I adore anything with coconut, lemon, and avocado
- I stay active by practicing yoga & strength training almost daily
Before having our kids, my husband and I lived in a large city with a diverse food culture. We also had a chance to travel to many places around the world in Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and across North America so you will see many recipes that have been inspired by the places we have visited.
Here are some reader favorites:
These days, you can usually find me making a mess in the kitchen with my two little ones while dreaming up new and exciting recipes.
