Michelle Smith is the blogger behind the popular food blog, The Whole Smiths, and author of the best-selling The Whole Smiths Good Food Cookbook. She resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two young daughters. When Michelle's children were born, she started paying close attention to the foods they were eating and quickly realized how much processed food had become "normal" food in so many households, hers included. After dabbling in the paleo diet she quickly saw improvement in her family's overall health and wellness and was hooked. Shortly thereafter, she decided to start a food blog called the Whole Smiths and share the recipes that she was creating for her family. Michelle is passionate about creating healthy dishes the entire family will enjoy and doesn't feel that clean eating should feel pretentious, but accessible and fun for everybody. When she's not tinkering around in the kitchen she enjoys hiking, yoga, and live music.
