LATEST BLOGS

I write blogs ranging from personal reflections on my own journey to healing my relationship with food and my body, my writing advice and author journey, the experience of being a childless, not by choice, woman through to articles to support you in breaking free from food rules and diet mentality. So that you, too, may experience the joy of eating (and life) with less self-doubt, limiting beliefs, guilt or shame.

It is an honour to be sharing my insights and learnings with you.

RECIPES

I write recipes to nourish and comfort your body and soul with an awareness of how your body responds to the food you eat and what brings you joy and satisfaction.

I love to keep food simple. My recipes are mostly made from widely accessible ingredients, and I provide substitutions and modifications where I can and bust nutrition and food myths as I go.
