Welcome to The Lean Green Bean!

My name is Lindsay and I’m a new mom and Registered Dietitian from Columbus, OH.  I love sharing my passion for nutrition and healthy living with my readers! On this blog you’ll find healthy recipes, nutrition information, tips for new moms,  workouts and more! My goal is to show you that healthy living doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. I believe that life is all about being balanced, simple and real….and I strive to show all of you how I live this message in my everyday life via my blog and social media posts.

Day to day I wear a variety of different hats. I’m a work from home mom. I work for several dietitians in the area of nutrition communications, I blog regularly, I provide online nutrition counseling and I also do freelance writing and recipe development. If you’re interested, you can read about my journey to becoming an RD.

After a struggle with infertility, I was finally able to get pregnant and my husband and I had our first child in October 2014.  His nickname is Squish and he’s the best! You can see lots of pictures by following me on Instagram!


In addition to Squish, we’re also the proud parents of 2 dogs and 2 cats! You can read more about them here. In my free time, I do Crossfit several days a week and I love to read.
