Hi! I’m Joanne and I run The Balanced Kitchen!
I live in Cheshire which is South of Manchester in the UK, with my husband and our 3 boys. Life is always busy, raising 3 children (two teens and one age 10) but being a mum and a wife, is my first priority and where I give most of my energy!
Taking care of my health is really important to me, especially after experiencing ill health for a few years during my 30’s, and now that I am in my 40’s and signs of wear start to show (!) it’s a signal that it’s really important to make health a priority if I am to enjoy the next few decades with the zest and energy I have been used to throughout my younger years.
I really enjoy being creative and the photography side of the blog is where I can get lost for hours! You can usually find me at home in the kitchen or in a charity shop where I love to find forgotten treasures!
I hope you enjoy my website and find some inspiration for healthy meal ideas!
