Welcome to The Balanced Kitchen!

Recipes using nutrient dense, wholefood, natural ingredients.

Traditional home-cooked meals with a healthy twist.


Hello! I’m Joanne…

…..a busy wife and mum to 3 teenage boys.  I love to cook with nutrient dense, wholefoods and find ways to make traditional, homecooked favourites as delicious, healthy and nutritious as I can!  I also love to get creative behind the camera and photograph the food I make so I can share it with you.  Here, you will find recipes with health and flavour as the main ingredients (and the odd slice of cake for a little something sweet!) I hope you will find some inspiration for cooking up something special laughing


Take Care Of Your Body. It’s The Only One You’ve Got.
