Lindsey Miller Crouch is a health-supportive, organic personal
chef and lifestyle coach. She is a member of the United States Personal Chef
Association and works alongside her husband, Daniel, to create all inclusive
wellness programs of food and fitness for their clients.
Born in Albuquerque, NM, where food is a large part of the
history, culture and lifestyle, she developed an appreciation for locally-grown foods
and big flavors early on. She attended college in Texas (at Texas Tech University), and much to her surprise,
green chile was not an option at every restaurant, drive-in or pizza joint!
Her palate began to change, as she was weaned off the New Mexico “heat”.
Though her first love of New Mexican food was much different than her new
home’s Tex-Mex, she liked this lighter and somewhat cleaner style of mexican
food, not slathered in chile sauce. Then it was off to NYC for her first job
out of college. This was a whole new fiesta, like, Toto, I don’t think we’re
in Kansas anymore! Given the amazing blessing of having to wine and dine her
business clients, she experienced the best cuisines that NYC had to offer.
Many weeks she would eat at two or three of the city’s best restaurants,
including: Casa Mono, David Burke & Donatella, Daniel, Del Posto, La Esquina, Mr. Chow, Nobu, Per Se, Tao, and the list goes on. Lindsey almost died in fabulous food heaven, making
sure to relish each bite, as she did not want it to be her last! While in
NYC, she and her two roommates would host an annual Thanksgiving Dinner for
a dozen of their friends. Lindsey loved spoiling their taste buds with extra
cheesy gratin potato casserole, corn bread stuffing, her infamous “love dip”
that might have been the cause of her “love handles” and a special treat
from back home, bacon-wrapped, pineapple cream cheese-stuffed jalapenos!
Then things really changed as she was taken away from the
big city and transplanted into Dallas. But this change, like all the others,
was good - especially for her waistline! She got engaged to health and
wellness guru, Daniel Crouch, and if she wanted to keep her man happy and
healthy, she would have to take on a whole new way of healthy cooking. She
started reading magazine after magazine for helpful hints and recipes for
her new organic lifestyle. She got a garden in a garden co-op so she could
grow her own organic vegetables and herbs. Then Daniel’s clients started to
probe, saying they were receiving all of the physical benefits from their
workouts with him, but what they should eat?? That’s when the light went off
and Lindsey said, well I know how to cook light and I’d be delighted to
help! So off she was to the USPCA to learn how to become a personal chef!
She loves to continue researching foods, recipes and nutrition. And she is
excited to live in Dallas where she gets all four seasons and new plentiful
produce and new recipes for each one! You'll still find Hatch green chiles in her vegetable bowl - some things never change!
