About Roots & Rosemary

Rachel Alexandra

Recipe Developer, Photographer, and Homesteader

Welcome to Roots & Rosemary! I’m Rachel Alexandra and I’m so glad you found my corner of the internet! This is where I share fresh, nourishing recipes to support women’s health and fertility…plus a few healthy-ish desserts (everything in moderation, right? 😉). I hope you find this site helpful and enjoy trying some new, healthy foods!

Over the past few years, I’ve been sorting through some health challenges and was eventually diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Throughout the journey, I have taken a deep dive into the world of nutrition. I am very passionate about using food as medicine and firmly believe that women should be knowledgeable about about how their bodies work. As I continue working toward better health and managing my condition, I want share what I’ve learned and hope to inform and empower other women to advocate for their health.

When I’m not in the kitchen creating recipes and taking photos, you can find me deep in scientific literature as I wrap up the final months of my MSc in Global Food Security and Nutrition from the University of Edinburgh. I also keep myself busy at Wild Goose Acres, the Wisconsin homestead I share with my amazing husband Daniel, our two horses, dog, and chickens. I have an enormous garden the size of our house and I love learning to grow all sorts of veggies!

I’d love to hear from you, so feel free to introduce yourself in the comments below or on my contact page! Thanks for stopping by.
