Welcome to My Passion

This has been a long time coming. And I mean LONG.

I didn’t realise how obsessed I was with food until I recently began looking back over diaries from my youth. I’ve always had this ‘thing’ with food. Lucky for me, my career path led me toward Health by way of the Fitness Industry. Nutrition goes hand-in-hand with fitness so my exposure to the subject deepened. I read, I researched, I experimented. But it was the brief encounter I had with something called Epigenetics that truly awakened my passion for Food, for Clean Eating, but I’ll bore you with that at another time.

Suffice to say, it’s all about Whole Food to me. I subscribe to the Low HI philosophy (credit Dr John Tickell)… Low Human Interference. The more packaged and processed a ‘food’ is, the less benefit it is to you. Fewer processes, fewer additives, fewer nutrients lost. I’m all about nutrient-density and really basic COMMON SENSE eating.

So I’m blogging to give you ideas. I’ll be excited, especially with my new best friend the Thermomix, so I hope my enthusiasm, my fervour, is infectious. But a couple of warnings: I’m blasé and lazy. I often ‘bastardise’ recipes and rarely measure anything, so if you’re hoping to follow my lead, please have patience and moreover, TRUST that whatever happens, you’ll end up eating something that is way better for you than you would get out of a packet.

Let’s do this!
