The Zested Lemon Philosophy
We believe a healthy lifestyle is one that nourishes the body as well as the soul. Fortunately, food has the amazing ability of doing both and Zested Lemon is here to show you how.
We help others eat well and make memories with the people they care about. It’s our version of living fruitfully.
Simple yet nutritious recipes and effective resources to help you pick the right foods, create meals quickly and build long-term habits that fit into your personal lifestyle.
Delicious recipes that bring people together to share in experiences, make memories and create traditions whether is be nightly family dinners or a once in lifetime celebration.
We Use a Comprehensive Approach
Yep, we have tons of recipes but we also provide resources to help with grocery shopping, equipment and storage, kitchen organization, meal prep, cooking skills, healthy habits and everything in between. From start to finish, we are here for you.
We are Food Inclusive
Zested Lemon accepts all foods of all varieties. You won’t find any diets or food restrictions here. We focus on adding healthy foods to daily meals over time instead of taking away foods.
We Eat With Purpose
Foods aren’t labeled as good or bad. Cupcakes aren’t bad and you aren’t bad for eating them. Food is food. We believe there is a time, place and purpose for everything. For example:
You have a lot of options about who to follow, recipes to make and ways to get healthy. So, I aim to earn the trust of my readers with every post. If you’re curious about the woman behind the website, here is a little about me.
My name is Rachel and I am the creator of Zested Lemon. Tom is my husband and the self-proclaimed taste tester and model for Zested Lemon. We live in Minneapolis with our English lab, Nala, and miniature wiener dog, Trudy. They are the funniest duo I’ve ever met.
I’m a CPA, have traveled to 40+ countries and tend to take on way more projects than any sane person would ever consider. One time Tom and I renovated an entire house in just under four months while living in the creepy basement of said house. It’s safe to say my life is chaos most of the time but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
So, I’m just a normal person who is exceptionally good at eating well with a busy schedule. That wasn’t always the case though. Once upon a time, my diet consisted of excessive amounts of caffeine, candy and more fast food than I’m willing to admit. One day I decided it was time to make my health a priority.
Over the next several years I transformed the way I look at food and learned what healthy actually meant. Through much trial and error I taught myself how to consistently eat well despite my hectic lifestyle. It improved my life in such a way, I wanted to help others do the same and Zested Lemon was born.
