Hi there! Welcome to On the Straight and Farro. Our goal is to deliver healthy meals we hope your family will enjoy as much as we do! We don’t adhere to one specific diet, but try to make healthy substitutions to foods we love without sacrificing flavor.  We believe that by being aware of healthy alternatives and making good choices, you can meet wellness and fitness goals without the math.

We also have some serious wanderlust and travel whenever we can, exploring foods as well as culture. You’ll find recipes inspired from all over the world, and possibly some travel posts here and there. These meals come straight from our kitchen, but we hope that you keep coming back so that they can be a part of yours too!
