A Couple Cooks is a healthy simple cooking food blog written by Sonja Overhiser and Alex Overhiser in Indianapolis, Indiana. We’re a food writer and food photographer who are healthy living influencers, specializing in vegetarian recipes, vegan recipes, gluten free recipes, and healthy dinner ideas. We started our healthy food blog in 2010, back when healthy eating and vegetarian recipes were not on the radar. Since then, we’ve become professional recipe developers and healthy food influencers. We also are cookbook authors of the vegetarian cookbook Pretty Simple Cooking, named one of the best vegetarian cookbooks by Epicurious, and are podcast hosts of a food podcast. See our Work with Us  page if you’d like to work with us in any of the following areas: recipe development, blog posts, product reviews, social media posts, freelance food photography, content development, licensing photographs, licensing recipes, influencer marketing, and working as brand ambassadors.
