Cameron Linville, founder of Freckled Foodie

Hi everyone, welcome to Freckled Foodie!

I’m Cameron: a very freckled 27-year-old living in NYC, with a big appetite for all things food. Whether it is perusing food blogs, testing recipes at home, or dining at some of my favorite restaurants in New York, the world of food excites me like nothing else. To me, a great meal or the perfect bite exudes warmth and becomes a whole body experience. Just ask me to recap a recent meal I’ve had and watch how over the top joyous, detailed, and passionate I become.

I love that food not only brings me so much happiness, but that it is also such an inclusive activity. Growing up, food always played an important role in my family. Whether it was Friday nights spent out by the grill or Sundays watching football devouring hoagies, we were always eating. Nothing makes my heart happier than sitting around a table filled with people I love, laughing, and enjoying a delicious meal together.

But my journey from loving food to understanding it is a new one. As someone whose stress manifests in her stomach, I’ve spent the last few years chasing and creating solutions that work for my body. However, while my weekday mornings may be filled with kale smoothies and overnight oats, I still love a hearty stack of pancakes and crispy bacon on a Sunday. Life is one big game of see-saw trying to find that perfect balance, and the kitchen is where I best find mine.

After working on Wall Street in Sales & Trading for 5 years, I had a life altering moment and decided it was time to wave goodbye to the corporate world and pursue Freckled Foodie full time. As a certified health coach and a self-taught meal prep connoisseur, and proclaimed by Forbes as one of the “five entrepreneurs changing New York’s wellness scene”, I am thrilled to now offer my services full time. Freckled Foodie is for all of us lovers of food; those who could read restaurant menus five times over, those who don’t understand how anyone ever “accidentally misses a meal”, and those who want to better themselves. On this site and my Instagram I make a conscious effort to show you the reality of my health journey, not the filtered. In a world where we are surrounded by over curated content, I am pushing for the belief that you don’t need a pristine kitchen or a perfect blowout and full face of makeup to make a delicious meal. All you need is some time, some fresh ingredients, and determination. Never let intimidation or comparison get in the way of you living your healthiest lifestyle!

Follow along and join my journey as I continue to bop around NYC, experiment with new ingredients, and find my way in the kitchen.
