About Cotter Crunch
I’m Lindsay Cotter, founder of Cotter Crunch. I’m so happy to have you here!
I created Cotter Crunch in 2009 thanks to my husband and former triathlete. At the time, I was cooking to keep him healthy and fueled for performance and recovery throughout his races. In doing so, I began posting my recipes on his blog, and before I knew it I had created my own to provide a nutrition resource for athletes like him with recipes using REAL FOODS.
Over time, I began developing recipes to help combat my own health problems (more on that later), and my focus began to shift to a gluten-free diet.
So, fast forward a few years to now, and my recipes still focus on including healthy, wholesome ingredients while providing inclusive ingredients for all diet types. It’s my mission to spread knowledge about how each ingredient works while sharing recipes that restore the body, energize, and taste great!

More About Lindsay
While I love developing recipes and running everything Cotter Crunch, my first love was Nutrition. In fact, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Science Nutrition from the University of Texas at Austin. I also became certified as a nutrition specialist through AASDN and work under a Sports Dietician Nutritionist and am qualified as a fitness instructor and personal trainer. I met my New Zealander husband (aka kiwi Cotter) while working as a run coach, and together we have traveled the globe as he competed. In our adventures, I was nicknamed “Sherpa wife” for handing out healthy goodies like my Apricot Fig Energy Bites at the end of each race to help the athletes refuel. Today I embrace that title and remain as passionate about nutrition and making healthy foods taste great as ever!
