PGM 10 | Lindsey Love of Dolly & Oatmeal

Jan 16 2015

In this podcast, Celine interviews food blogger and former Pure Green In Season community leader, Lindsey Love of the beloved Dolly and Oatmeal. Lindsey has been a notable figure in the blog world for some time now and continues to garner attention for her beautifully simple recipes, aesthetic and relatability. She talks to Celine about the health struggles that forced her to change her diet and how that morphed into a celebrated blog and upcoming cookbook (!!!), how to keep meal-planning simple and intuitive, and the way she draws inspiration from a support group of fellow bloggers. Thank you so much for listening, we hope you’ll enjoy Celine’s conversation with Lindsey and tune in next week for another episode of the Pure Green Podcast!
