About Michelle

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet, I’m Michelle and welcome to the Whole Smiths. *Cue the virtual grand gesture with my arms.*

So, who the heck am I? I’m the author of the bestselling The Whole Smiths Good Food Cookbook and creator of this place. These days I’m a mother to two spunky girls and a happy wife to one fantastic dude.

Born and bred in California, I’m a Cali girl through and through. We currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area; the land of technology, food and traffic.

In my spare time you can find me testing new recipes, starting impromptu dance parties, making amazingly hilarious jokes or wasting my brain away watching Vanderpump Rules, my guiltiest pleasure.

But to balance that out I’m also deeply spiritual, I love science-y stuff, anything growth mindset related and lots of other geeky things you probably don’t want to get me started on. Aliens? Anyone?

And oh yeah! I’m passionate about the food we eat. Like, really passionate about it. But not in an annoying way that shoves it down your throat and tells you that everything you’ve known, thought and eaten in regards to food is wrong. 

Nope. That’s not me.

I want to show people that eating wholesome foods doesn’t have to be boring and pretentious but that it can be attainable for everyone. And fun!

I love learning as much as I can about our food system and what we can do to make a difference. My goal is to be a voice in making our food system a better place to eat and bring people back into their kitchens.

It makes me sad to think about the state of things now but I know through awareness and education we can create the shift that needs to happen for us, our children and generations to come.
