About and Contact

 

Welcome to my blog!  I’m Lisa Horvath.  I recently moved from lovely San Francisco across the country to Boston with my boyfriend Michael, puppy Eli and cat Guy.  I quit my corporate job in advertising to see what happens when you aren’t working 12-hour days but instead follow your passions of cooking and teaching yoga.

I am fortunate to have learned the pleasures of being in the kitchen from a long line of enthusiastic Hungarian chefs.  From my grandparents who taught me how to roll langosch on the kitchen table and make homemade french fries, to my Papa who left a legacy of deep rooted love for feeding others and feeling most at home in the comforts of a kitchen (it didn’t actually matter if it was his).

Quinoa and Kale:

In 2009, my food journey deviated a little from my Hungarian family when I became a vegetarian and fell in love with kale. Through the wonders of blogs and the skills acquired in my own little kitchen, I learned how to cook flavorful, healthy meals that didn’t require meat. In 2010, I met Michael, who has celiac disease. In an attempt to cater to both our diets, I learned all I could about the world of gluten free foods, and discovered my beloved quinoa.  My hope is to share my knowledge of vegetarian and gluten free meals with you here.

Exhale:

My infatuation with healthy eating goes hand in hand with my devotion to fitness. I’ve played sports and run since high school but during college I felt like something was missing.  It was at this time that I was introduced to yoga.  Last summer, after almost 10 years of practice I decided to become a certified yoga instructor and completed my 200-hour teacher training.  I love the practice and hope to share some musings and deep exhales with you here as I navigate the teaching world in a new city.

I have been blessed with an amazing family and incredible friends, many of whom are scattered throughout the country.  So in addition to recipes and yoga, I plan to ramble a little about my daily life, in hopes that this blog helps bridge the distance between us and give both them and you a glimpse into my life and adventures in a new city.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Sounds like a good life! I am still a devoted runner thanks to you and your inspiration! The yoga thing, I didn’t stick with. Looking forward to reading more of your blogs. I need help in the kitchen department, if you don’t remember. 🙂

  2. Hi Lisa, prior to checking out your blog I had never heard of Quinoa. I’m going to pick some up and give it shot. Thanks for the recipes and the inspiration to try something new. I am really happy for you and I applaud your courage to follow your passions.

    I hope the transition to The Olde Towne is going smoothly, and don’t forget I’m still here in DC, if you’d like to stop by for a visit and some sight seeing.

    Take care,
    Ashley
