Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Elettra Weidemann has about 10 different projects on her plate at any given time, from modeling on international covers of GQ, Elle, and Marie Claire to being named a contributing editor of Self for 2014. At some point along the way, in the middle of obtaining a degree from the London School of Economics, Weidemann was struck with the idea to launch, a food-focused website that will act as a diary of all of her foodie adventures, from searching out meals that only use in-season ingredients to building her own garden in Brooklyn.

The site launched this morning with three recipes that don't call for kale and don't have a calorie counter in the sidebar, so we'd say it's off to a good start. She welcomes readers to the site by saying, "My Impatient Foodie blog is built on a struggle within myself: When it comes to food I want to be good (I really do!), but sometimes it feels like being good is a total pain in my ass and a major time drain." We feel you.
