About

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Bailey and I started Lettuce Beet Diabetes in 2014 as a way to be creative and to keep track of all the recipes I create in my kitchen.

I am passionate about food freedom, nutrition, disease prevention, understanding type 1 diabetes, connecting with the type 1 diabetes community, and creating and sharing new recipes. You'll see a lot of these topics weaved into my posts.

Here are a couple of my more personal posts if you want to get to know me:


I am a Registered Nurse as well as have a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition. I am currently working on a Master's Degree to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. I live in lovely Louisville, KY with my husband and our two Aussies, Atlas and Luella.

Do you have type 1 diabetes and live in Louisville, KY? Email me at baileyrwest@gmail.com about my monthly Type 1 Meet Up group. I'd love to meet you!
