I love to cook and find it is a great creative outlet for me. I also love the way that cooking and eating connects us with each other and with the earth.
I don’t follow a particular diet but subscribe to the philosophy Just Eat Real Food (JERF) and try to minimise eating ‘foods’ from packages and boxes.
I also love learning about the healing properties of food particularly spices and teas and using them in my family’s diet.
As much as possible I try to create my own cleaning and skin care products so I know they are as healthy and effective as possible.

'Buddha Bowls' have become incredibly popular and for good reason I say! Essentially this is a bowl of whatever you feel like chucking in there to give you a healthy, well-balanced, nutrient dense, simple meal in one bowl. Originally, when Buddha and his monks...read more
I make a different variation of these delicious and fairly healthy bliss balls each week. They are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and full of good fats and proteins as well as the awesome benefits of the Essential Oils. Lemon and Ginger are both good for...read more
It’s that time of year when we might need a bit of extra help to stay healthy with the cold weather and lots of bugs going around.

The results were so yummy, and I seriously feel amazing from drinking this every other day for the last couple of weeks, so I just had to share it.read more
