After having my two daughters in my 20s, cooking became an outlet for my creativity. What started out as a hobby quickly evolved into a full-blown passion, and I realised I had a chance to forge a career out of my love of cooking. I posted my first recipe photo – a blurry snap, taken on my phone, of a lemon drizzle cake – on Instagram in January 2018. Although very basic, it was the first step on an exciting journey into a new chapter of my life.
As I gradually learnt how to shoot, edit and style my recipes, I was also moving towards a more plant-based diet. As well as being better for my health and kinder to animals and the planet, I knew dishes based around plants could be absolutely delicious.
I began by experimenting with vegan meals my family would love to eat, and today I eat a plant-based diet around 90% of the time. My approach to food has never been about preaching to people about their choices: I simply want to offer some tasty options for those times you might feel like trying a meat-free Monday, or adding more plant-based meals into your everyday life.
