Welcome to Life As A Plate, the creation of busy mom, wife, Crossfit fanatic and home chef, AndreAnna McLean.
AndreAnna started LifeAsAPlate.com as a creative outlet for her life as a home cook, wife to a gluten-free husband, and Crossfit athlete. Sadly, just as her blog was starting to take off, she decided that something had to give in her life. In her own words:
I did this to myself. I put too much on my plate and a hobby that I once loved became just one more thing I had to get done – one more deadline. It became work. And when a hobby becomes a job that takes time away from my children, it is no longer worth it. I don’t want to be that parent that wishes they were more present. I don’t want my kids to think the laptop attached to my hands is more important than coloring on the floor or going to see a movie.
I don’t want to be an observer in their lives. I want to be there with them living it.
Something has to give.
AndreAnna published colorful, delicious recipes on LifeAsAPlate.com. She put her heart into it, added a dash of humor, and a pinch of humility, all while showing the world a wonderful side of herself, her humanity.
When we found LifeAsAPlate.com at auction, we knew that we had to preserve AndreAnna’s accomplishment and continue her legacy.
