Jeanine Donofrio of Love & Lemons in kitchen kneeling bread dough smiling


We were absolutely thrilled to speak with Jeanine Donofrio, the creator of one of our very favorite food blogs: Love & Lemons.  Additionally, she is the author of the bestselling Love & Lemons Cookbook, which the New York Times described as “Happiness itself tossed into every bowl”.  Jeanine is best known for her bright, vegetable-packed recipes, stunning photography, and creative design visuals that inspire people to have fun in the kitchen.  She has been featured in People, O:The Oprah Magazine, Self, and Shape Magazine, among others.  She and her husband, Jack, cook and photograph from their home in Chicago while their two Shiba pups help clean up the kale stems that fall on the kitchen floor.
In this episode, Jeanine tells about her path to becoming a food blogger after her career in graphic design.  She shares how her husband Jack is now her full time partner in Love & Lemons and how that evolved over the years.  Finally, we get to hear a cute story of an Italian dog with a lemon and how that played a role in their blog name plus the process of writing her new cookbook Love & Lemons Every Day which is coming out on April 2nd and is available for pre-order now.  We loved chatting with Jeanine and hearing her story, listen in and Get to Know her.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade and Medically Endorsed

30% Off Use Code: WEGETTOKNOW

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed.  All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements?  Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies?  They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity. 

When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best.   I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
