Welcome to The Local Sprout!

My name is Ella. Here at The Local Sprout I share a about my desire to eat and live a meaningful life. My aim is to inspire and educate others on when it means to create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. For fun I enjoy long, challenging hiking trips, massive smoothie bowls, and thought-provoking coffee-shop conversations.
Here at The Local Sprout I share healthy and simple, gluten-free recipes that require a blender, 45-minutes or less or a dozen ingredients or less. My aim is to inspire and educate others on what it means to create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

The recipes I create follow what I have found to bring nourishment and energy to my life. I love all the interesting, colorful, and beautiful plants out in our world and find that cooking with whole foods over processed foods in much more fulfilling. On weekends I shop at farmers markets and enjoy hosting dinners filled with whole-foods cooked in lovely and unique ways. I have found over the past few years that cooking is both a rewarding and creative outlet for me. I strive to inspire others, through my posts, to reconnect with food, their environment and create meaning—even in the simple things.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to leave me a message and share your thoughts.
