Hey there! I’m Jennifer Shreckengost, the mastermind behind Wanderlust and Wellness. My mission is to inspire you, through food and adventures, to live your best life.
Wanderlust and Wellness started out as a food blog that focused on nut-free and gluten-free recipes. I was so frustrated trying to find gluten-free recipes that didn’t have nut-based ingredients like nut flours and milk that I decided to create my own and blog about them!
I named the blog Wanderlust and Wellness because I love to travel and explore, and for me, wellness means living your best life. The tag line started out as “eat well, live well, and travel often”. The mission of the blog was to inspire others, through food and adventures, to live their best life. But, sometimes we stray from the original “why” and go down different paths. Over the past few years, the blog has evolved, you may have seen different recipe types and topics come through here, but 2019 is the year we’re coming back to the core of the mission here, to eat well, live well, and travel often! ⠀
I want to inspire each of you, through food and adventures, to live your best life. Inspire you to eat well (however that may look for you), live well (find your passions and go for it), and travel often (explore, experience, and embrace the moments). Are you ready??
I ditched my corporate executive job at the beginning of 2018 to focus solely on the work I do here with Wanderlust and Wellness. I feel so much gratitude for being able to have a career I absolutely love.
I live in a small town outside of Kansas City, Missouri with my husband and five kids. My husband is an avid outdoorsman, you can find him over on Primal Pioneer. Did I also mention I’m a proud Noni to 5 beautiful granddaughters? So much fun (and sass!)
