The Chews Letter was created with a passion for delicious food that nourishes the body, builds community, and supports sustainability, all while bringing everyone to their table despite different tastes and dietary needs.

Lisa Anderson

Plant-based, Editor in Chief

Lisa is a Wisconsin native — now living in Florida — and she grew up on a crop farm, hunting, fishing, and raising beef cattle. In April of 2019, Lisa began her journey of a healthier lifestyle that unintentionally created a passion for cooking. When she decided to live a plant-based lifestyle that June, Lisa had to feed her omnivore cravings by learning to cook in all-new, plant-based ways, she also had the challenge of preparing meals for her boyfriend. He lives a Keto-diet lifestyle and not able to sample the food she was making for him. The path to health led to The Chews Letter. It encompasses her passion for food, photography, and design in one place.
