hello and welcome! i’m cait and i’m so glad that you’re here.
i started cait’s plate waaaay back in 2009 as a way to share my passion for healthy living…and the rest has been history!
the blog has gone through many iterations over the years from sharing my daily meals to recipes as well as snippets of my every day life. so what can you expect to find here these days? a lot of the same! simple, easy-to-follow recipes incorporating whole foods from main meals to dessert, samples of what i’m eating and bits and pieces of how i maintain a balanced lifestyle.
i believe a balanced lifestyle is the healthiest lifestyle, and there is no singular prescription for this – it’s completely individualized. it means taking those things in life that you’re most passionate about and finding a way to fit them in to an overall healthy way of living. it also means that what i do may not be right for you and what you do may not be right for me but we may BOTH be living perfectly well-balanced lifestyles.
i love creating wholesome meals in my own kitchen but i also love going out to eat. it’s my firm belief that you don’t need to deprive yourself of life’s little pleasures in order to be healthy as long as you even it all out. there is no one perfect diet out there – find what works best for you and stick with it as long as it makes you feel good.
no matter what your day to day brings, i want you to feel like you can handle it. whether you’re a stay at home parent, working a 9-5, traveling constantly – i hope to show you that you can achieve balance – something I think everyone has the right to achieve and truly believe can achieve.
