Amanda Plott started working from home as a graphic designer when she was about three months pregnant with her daughter. At that time, she started to take cooking a little more seriously. After her daughter was born, she made the decision to breastfeed for a full year, and somewhere along the way, started to become more health conscious (both for her child and to shed the excess baby weight). While changing her eating habits, one of her close friends started a blog on living frugally and happily. The idea of a blog sparked an interest in Amanda. (She had started a food blog before, but stopped keeping up with it after a few months.) Because of her friend's inspiration, she started The Skinny Fork, in February of 2013.

"I really didn't give much thought to what I wanted to blog about," Amanda tells Kitchen Daily. "I knew that I wanted to share with the world my [healthy] and skinny versions of recipes that we all know, love and crave. So many people out there think that eating lighter or more healthfully will take away from taste, and that's just not true! The smallest of changes can have the biggest effect on you while still tasting fabulous."
