Native Highlight: @LindseyEatsLA
We had the pleasure of talking to Lindsey Baruch, the personality running the popular Instagram account @lindseyeatsla. She understands the power of relationships and has made it her mission to connect with others that share her passion for the LA food scene. She shows this through Lindsey Eats LA as well as her blog which is packed with expert reviews, unique recipes, and awesome inspiration.
The inspiration behind the account
Since high school, Lindsey had a drive to share her passions with others. That passion led her to start a recipe blog aimed to share her favorite meals and display her natural photography skills. As high school came to a close, she made a transition most of us have experienced; she started eating out a lot more. She loved the thrill she got from finding a new, undiscovered spot and Instagram was her platform to find it.
One day as she was scrolling through her personal Instagram, she realized that photos of food had most of the real estate on her profile so it was an easy transition to starting @lindseyeatsla.
The drive to inspire
As @lindseyeatsla gained in popularity, Lindsey saw an opportunity to do more than just connect people to restaurants. She wanted to tell her story and inspire others to strive towards what they're passionate about. We really like where she talked about getting outside your comfort zone, even if it's as small as trying a new restaurant. She has been inspired by others to pursue her passions, and hopes she can have that same impact on others.
What got you so hooked on the LA food scene?
This is a common trend with our Natives. LA differentiates itself from other food scenes in the pure diversity it offers. Similar to LA as a whole, the food scene has pockets of food that suites anyone's taste buds.
It is also why Natives like Lindsey are so important to experiencing on a deeper level. They are committed to helping you find the hottest new restaurants and things to do around LA, and we're committed to connecting you with them!
As we saw earlier, Lindsey started out with a passion for creating recipes. She isn't just about showing you awesome pictures of dishes, she also can give you unique snacks and creative ideas to try when cooking.
So... we don't know what it looks like, but if those are the ingredients and it has Lindsey's approval, we're all in on "Making Chips".
