We Live Here: Lara Lyn Carter


We’re starting a new video series!

This new video series from 229 Life is called We Live Here. It’s made to feature people who make up the fabric of South Georgia as we know it and showcase them in ways you may not have thought of. Our first guest on this series is Lara Lyn Carter, an Emmy-winning television chef and mom bringing Southern elegance and healthy recipes to the modern kitchen.

Lara Lyn Carter is a native of South Georgia and has a self-taught knack for delivering clean-eating recipes that don’t forget the flavor. Her book of recipes, Skinny Southern, is a hallmark of this feat. The book shares 90 reinvented classics without the guilt. Get the book HERE.

You’ll notice the format of this video and some others are in a video chat style. We decided not to delay this series even in the middle of the 2020 pandemic, where South Georgia and Albany particularly has been a hot spot of COVID-19 cases. That’s why it looks this way. We’re so thankful for technology and the internet that allows us to make this possible. We’re also thankful for Lara Lyn Carter taking time to do this interview with us.

Watch the video

Future episodes of the We Live Here series will feature South Georgia leaders, influencers, and business owners. If you like this video or just want to support 229 Life in general, subscribe to our YouTube channel! This lets you have access to our latest videos as soon as they are available.
