Hi! My name’s Elise and I’m the brains (and stomach!) behind the BARE. operation. I’m so glad you found your way here and hope you enjoy your visit. I’m a huge advocate for enjoying the simplicity of life through food, mindful and intentional living and celebrating the everyday in more sustainable and eco-conscious ways.

BARE. stands for Be Alive, Really Enjoy it. And I mean it. I’ll be the last person to recommend juice cleanses or a fruitarian diet. I’m a real person, with a real job, and real responsibilities (like doing laundry and stuff).

I develop recipes, involve my local community and share tips and ideas on how you can make your kitchen more #greenliving. All with a hefty pinch of salt – I’m not here to lecture you about the waste produced by your pizza order. Not here.

what am I going to find here?

Mostly food. Lots of food. But not just any food. Really, really good food, that’s seasonal, requires little kitchen space, is good for your soul and the planet.

Also ideas about how to have a greener kitchen that doesn’t take over your life! I’m all for zero waste, but it can be a little overwhelming.

And plenty of other foodie and eco-conscious related things!

Sticking around? Awesome. 🌟
