Eating Between the Lines is like having an investigative food journalist on speed dial.

It’s about new products, recipes and advice on everything edible.

Eating Between the Lines is a shopper focused website designed to tell you more about a new food product that the label will ever reveal. It’s a place to gather information on how your food is produced and grown. And, it’s a digital resource to collect new recipes and new friends who share in your love of good food.

“Chi Mangia Bene, Viva Bene”
Those who eat well, live well


The concept for Eating Between the Lines started in a grocery store from a stranger shopping for olive oil. Founder, Kimberly Lord Stewart, had recently won a journalism award for uncovering some less than flattering facts about fraud in the olive oil industry. “Do you know something about this stuff?,” the woman said while holding up a green glass bottle to the light. As matter of fact, “I do,” Stewart replied. After a short olive oil lesson, the shopper said, “Thank you so much. Could you go shopping with me all the time?”

So, the book Eating Between the Lines was born in 2007 and the website in 2016. In addition to new product recommendations, this site if filled with updated excerpts from the original book, recipes and sage advice on buying and preparing food for your home kitchen.


If you are in the food industry and have a new product you would like considered for Eating Between the Lines, please contact us. Our website content is constantly evolving so readers get a fresh new look at new food products.  Not every product we receive makes it on the site. We believe that food can and should be grown and manufactured with a light and careful hand.

That means Eating Between the Lines features foods and companies with the following principles and ethos:

  1. Product must be introduced in the past year.
  2. Ingredients that support home cooking or at least recipe compilation.
  3. Foods that families can enjoy everyday without worry or regret.
  4. No artificial preservatives, colors or additives.
  5. No trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils (no exception, not even trace amounts).
  6. No high fructose corn syrup and low sugar (except for indulgent and celebratory foods, life to too short to be perfect).
  7. Minimal processing that retains the fiber, flavor and integrity of the ingredients (we recognize that all food is processed from the time it is picked, but you get the idea).
  8. Sustainable practices that are respectful of resources like soil and water.
  9. Regional foods from North America and the world that reflect cultural and religious traditions (some may say food is religion, but we like to explore faith-based foods that are unique to sacred celebrations).
  10. Social justice and hand-up corporate campaigns that build community.

NOTE: Though we think what we do is fun and it’s a life passion, the staff at Eating Between the Lines needs to put organic bacon and whole-grain bread on the table.  Some, but not all, of the foods on our site are sponsored and are labeled to reflect their status as hosted content. And, our sponsorship guidelines are very rigorous so our readers are not misled.
