Hi there and welcome to Emmy Lou Lou Blog!

I’m Emily. I started this blog during medical school as a creative outlet to balance out the craziness of medical school, but also because I felt patients had lots of questions and no good, comprehensive sources to find answers. I named my blog after a childhood nickname that I hated as a kid, but grew to love. I’m a family medicine resident living in small-town Minnesota with my amazing husband, Andrew. It’s just the two of us right now, but we spend lots of time with each of our families.

You’ll find posts about my various passions in life – healthy recipes, popular medical topics, and a little bit of fashion. I eat a mostly plant-based, Pescatarian diet, so most of my recipes revolve around this type of eating style. My fashion taste tends to revolve around neutral, classic pieces with pops of color in the spring and summer months. Medically, I like to focus on topics my patients have lots of questions about. It’s a little bit of everything, so I hope you find what you’re looking for!

Thanks so much for reading!

XOXO – Emmy Lou Lou
