Welcome to Fit Foodie Finds!

We are so glad you’re here! Fit Foodie Finds is a female-run food website featuring thousands of delicious recipes made with accessible ingredients and approachable methods — we’re all about cooking from scratch with real food. We believe in balance and food freedom, which is why you’ll find recipes ranging from veggie and protein-packed main meals to decadent desserts (and everything in between).

About Us

Lee Funke founded Fit Foodie Finds in 2010 when she was an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota as a way to share her love for real food and wellness online. The internet has changed so much since then, and so has Fit Foodie Finds. Today, we’re a female-owned and operated million dollar business. Our recipes reach millions of you every month, and our Instagram following of 315k+ will inspire you with everything from our delicious recipes to a glimpse into Lee’s life.

Linley Hanson joined the team in 2014, and has lended her extensive cooking and recipe development skills to every recipe since. She has an incredible palate, and loves creating unique and nourishing recipes. Emily Richter joined the team in 2015, managing brand partnerships and sponsored content. A writer by trade, she now serves as our editor in chief, writing and editing content on the website.

In 2024 we launched our very own food truck called Hodgepodge in collaboration with one of Minnesota’s most popular breweries – Forgotten Star Brewing Co.

We feed our families (and ourselves!) with this food, and couldn’t be more grateful that our recipes find their way into your kitchens. We hope you dig in and enjoy (again and again)! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest, and tag us using #fitfoodiefinds. Learn more about Fit Foodie Finds on LinkedIn.
