Laura Lea Balanced

Laura Lea Bryant is the brains and heart behind Laura Lea Balanced, a home cooking and wellness brand that helps people across the country reimagine the way they cook and eat for more balanced health. Her cookbooks, blog, and social media channels feature healthy versions of Southern classics that are nutritious, delicious, family friendly, and EASY. What’s not to love?

Laura Lea’s approach helps you improve physical and emotional health by simply listening to your body and filling it with real, satisfying, going-back-for-seconds-food. Laura Lea Balanced cookbooks are popular with health-conscious home cooks around the country because they focus on fresh, seasonal vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats, and most importantly, incredible taste. Think chive and goat cheese fluffy baked eggs, Cajun cauliflower potato soup, chicken pineapple paprika, maple bourbon baked pears, and so much more. And you don’t have to be an accomplished chef to master these delights. Each recipe is accompanied by practical, real-world cooking and prep tips.

Laura Lea Bryant is a Nashville Native who found herself living unhappily in New York for several years after college. Tied to a corporate job she didn’t love and a party-centered lifestyle that caused anxiety and health issues, she made a full 180-degree change. Building on her own family’s kitchen traditions, she began exploring the city’s farmer’s markets and browsing cookbook sections of bookstores to come up with new, nutritious recipes to fuel the healthier life she wanted to live. Inspired by the mind-body change she felt, Laura Lea quit her job to enroll in a holistic cooking program and ultimately returned home to Nashville to start her own business in 2013. Today, LLbalanced.com and its social media channels are home to a thriving community of people from around the globe who are drawn to Laura Lea’s joyful, down-to-earth approach to cooking for abundant mental and physical health.

Laura Lea Balanced cookbooks make easy, practical gifts, and they’re an excellent way to anchor gift baskets full of Tennessee-made culinary delights. Made in TN is proud to carry both Laura Lea Balanced cookbooks. Choose your culinary adventure here.
