Hi there, I’m Louisa Clements, but you can call me Lou and welcome to Living Lou. I’m 22 years old and am from Toronto, Ontario. I have been completely smitten with cooking and baking ever since getting my first Betty Crocker Kids Cookbook when I was about 7. To this day, I still use recipes from that wonderful book, and look to it for inspiration.

I am passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle and inspiring others to follow suit, creating simple, fresh and flavourful recipes. My love for cooking is known by everyone. I’m always surprising friends with new recipes to try and test and I never show up empty handed to a party.

While I spend lots of time on Living Lou, it’s not the only thing that I do. I work full time at women’s magazine Chatelaine and have a degree in film and media production. You can also find me checking out the latest restaurants around Toronto, attending events with my favourite brands, freelance writing for various online media outlets and producing online video content.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at [email protected] – I love hearing from you!


Living Lou was born in May 2010, two weeks after my 17th birthday as a fun and creative outlet for my passion for food. Living Lou is a journey and has presented me with many opportunities including partnering with some of my favourite brands, collaborating on a number of exciting campaigns and being involved in all things food from TV, to print to digital media. Living Lou was chosen as Hill & Knowlton’s top 10 food blogs to follow as well as Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Blog of the month. I have written for multiple media outlets including Chatelaine.com, Cityline.ca, Thekit.ca and The College Prepster and work with a number of brands such as KitchenAid, Kraft Canada, Lavazza, Mushrooms Canada.


I’ve loved collaborating with many brands, companies and bloggers over the years and I’d love to work with you! Please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] to chat. Opportunities include recipe development, food photography, sponsored posts, brand ambassador/sponsorship, video work, TV appearances, events and conferences.
