I’m Taryn. The kitchen has always been a joy filled place in my life. Even in the midst of dieting and weight loss food should bring JOY. I have lost over 50 pounds and enjoyed every bite. My recipes here at Joy Filled Eats are all gluten and sugar-free. Most are also low carb, keto, and grain free. I enjoy spending time baking, cooking, and creating recipes and I want to share that with my readers.
I am a stay home mom to 6 children from an infant to 13 years old. One of my first loves is baking and cooking. I’ve been playing around with recipes for over 20 years. Unfortunately, mothering all these babies has added to my waistline. After my 4th baby, I became determined to lose ALL the baby weight. And I did!
But now after welcoming my 6th baby, I get to do it all over again! I’ve tried whole30, keto, intermittent fasting, and paleo over the last 2 years. I started the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating after getting tired of cutting out entire food groups. I’m looking forward to sharing recipes and tips along the way.
I remember rolling out pie crust with my grandmother and sprinkling the scraps with cinnamon and sugar to make little cookies. The rolling pin in my header is a drawing of the rolling pin she passed down to me. I love having that little part of my grandmother on the top of every page.
I love being in the kitchen and I want to share that with you. I hope you enjoy Joy Filled Eats as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
