You may have read on our Facebook or Instagram feed that this month we are working with Andie Mitchell of (formerly CanYouStayForDinner).  Over the next few weeks we have a 3 part blog series to get to know Andie better and how she has found her own balance Eating in the Middle, which is also the title of her just released cookbook!  You can order a copy here.  Today is a quick introduction to Andie, meet Andie!


Hi! I’m Andie Mitchell, the food-loving blogger behind I’m also the author of two books: the New York Times bestselling memoir, It Was Me All Along, which shares my journey to lose 135 pounds and ultimately find balance with food, weight, and body image, and the recently published cookbook, Eating in the Middle: A Mostly Wholesome Cookbook. I have always felt most at home in the kitchen--whether in mine or someone else’s. It truly is the heart of the home and so many of my favorite memories have been made there. But even though I love food, it hasn’t always been a smooth or easy relationship. For years I struggled with my weight. 10 years ago though, staring down at a scale and seeing 300 pounds staring back up at me, I knew I had to turn my life around. I lost 135 pounds between 2005 and 2006, and one thing was for sure: if I wanted it to last, I had to overhaul the way I cooked. I bought new fruits, vegetables, grains...I experimented with brand new methods of preparing meals. I tried lightening my favorite recipes, sometimes successfully and sometimes not, and learned so much in the process. In a way, I was learning to cook all over again. And while it wasn’t quite as sweet as it was by my mom’s side years before, it was so much more rewarding. Today, I know that making wholesome meals with fresh ingredients is essential to feeling good in every way. I care about the brands I use because my history and journey has taught me to appreciate this body I have and I only want to treat it well. That’s why I love Tuttorosso, because they value freshness, simplicity, and quality--just like I do!
