Elizabeth Lindemann is the food blogger behind Bowl of Delicious, where she shares easy recipes that are made with wholesome ingredients and that cater to people with busy lifestyles.
Elizabeth Lindemann started her food blog, Bowl of Delicious, as a side hustle and a hobby on nights and weekends when she was a high school art teacher. The blog has since grown into a full-time business. A former New Englander, Elizabeth lives near Austin, TX with her husband, Zach, and two young daughters, Zoey and Eleanor.
Elizabeth has always had a voracious appreciation of food, cooking, and eating. Maybe it’s because she grew up in a Greek family that cooked – and ate – a LOT of delicious food. She honed her own cooking skills in college and grad school, and she quickly discovered that cooking was more than just a casual hobby to her.
But teaching at a Title 1 school serving primarily low-income students had its challenges, and it was easy to fall off the cooking bandwagon and opt for take-out. Elizabeth quickly learned that when she took the time to cook healthy food at home on a regular basis, she had more energy, less stress, and was able to handle the demands of her job better.
Along the way, she picked up on tricks and shortcuts to make home cooking doable even with a very busy lifestyle, while still using wholesome ingredients. So, she started Bowl of Delicious to share her recipes and tricks, and the rest is history!
Bowl of Delicious specializes in “real food for busy people.” Elizabeth’s goal is to get more people to enjoy the countless benefits of cooking at home even if they think they don’t have enough time or money, because these limitations often go hand-in-hand. She believes that cooking at home should help relieve stress, not cause it.
Elizabeth’s recipes are quick and easy, made in one-pot or pan, are Instant Pot or Slow Cooker friendly, or easy to make ahead or freeze in bulk. They’re usually budget-conscious and family friendly, and don’t ever use unhealthy, processed ingredients as a shortcut. In her personal life, she tries to stick to the 80-20 rule when it comes to eating healthy, whole foods, because she couldn’t live without the occasional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or cheap pizza take-out!
While Elizabeth doesn’t teach high school anymore, she’s still busy in a different kind of way, with being a mom and running a business. She loves that the blog enables her to continue to “teach” and help other people who struggle with cooking at home find success and joy in it!
