Sam I Am


meHey, I’m Sam and I love all things health and fitness, ESPECIALLY healthy cooking. I started Substitute Sam to show myself and others that healthy AND delicious are not mutually exclusive. It’s a blog dedicated to living healthier one meal at a time, but creating a list of healthy AND delicious recipes is tough so I’d love YOUR help along the way! 

If you’re a fitness fanatic, health junkie, or just a curious reader I’d love to hear from you via email amossteffl(at)gmail(dot)com or through Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, or Pinterest!

The Blog Experience

Originally, I started a blog as a simple way to share healthy recipes and tips with friends and family, but at some point in-between learning how to code, cook, and take photographs I realized managing a blog would be a greater challenge than I anticipated.

But this has proven to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my life and the reason is simple:

I’ve found a passion that helps develop two of the most valuable skills anyone can have:

  1. The knowledge and power to care for our well-being through healthy food choices
  2. The ability to connect and build a community passionate about idea sharing and learning 


Products – Throughout my blog I reference specific products, many of which are linked to Amazon. These products are purchased with my own money and I receive no incentive from Amazon affiliates or manufacturers for their use.

Photos – Please use any of my stunning smartphone photos and give credit back to my blog. Any photos that are not mine are given credit to the best of my ability. If I have failed to properly recognize a photo please let me know and I will fix it as quickly as possible.
