Layla McGowan began cooking at an early age as her mother introduced her to the Korean recipes that had been passed down orally through her family for generations. In her mother's kitchen she grew to appreciate that food can simultaneously provide bodily healing, give daily nourishment, and be an expression of true joy.
From those roots, Layla has evolved into a lifestyle of diverse culinary, health, and fitness practices, motivating and inspiring others in and out of the kitchen. She is an avid weightlifter and is known to her neighbors as the strange woman who practices yoga on the lawn.
Layla lives in Alabama with her husband Ryan. Get inspired for both fitness goals and kitchen creations on her Instagram @strong.and.wellfed. Lindsay Taylor, Ph.D., is the Senior Writer and Researcher at Primal Blueprint Publishing.
