This is a healthy food and lifestyle blog, based in Cape Town, South Africa. It is full of healthy recipes and meal ideas, healthy nutrition tips, the BEST foodie spots in Cape Town, yoga and some personal anecdotes about the (sometimes awkward) adventures of a glutard (me).
I am an unashamed foodie at heart. Food makes me happy and healthy food makes me happiest. I am that girl who takes photos of her food before she eats, and, more likely than not, instagrams it straight away.
A woman named Anna Thomas puts it perfectly:
“We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly”.
From as far back as I can remember food has always been central to my family and the way in which we spend our time together and I wholeheartedly blame my parents for my inability to eat vienna sausages. I was diagnosed with an allergy to wheat and gluten almost 5 years ago and, if anything, this has made me even more passionate about food than I was before. I am not a chef or a certified nutritionist (although I have studied it formally and informally given my bookworm tendencies). All of the photos on this blog are taken by me unless otherwise stated. Taking photographs and editing them is another love of mine. If you would like to use any of the photos, please don’t steal them, ask and you shall receive.
I won’t tell you what to eat or what not to eat, but I will share with you a way of eating healthy food and living a healthy lifestyle that makes me truly happy. I believe in food that is gluten-free, sugar-free and wholesome. If I’m not exploring coffee shops and foodie spots with my blonde hulk, trying hard to be an adult or on my yoga mat, I’m probably working out a way to text my dogs back home in Joburg.
This is not just a healthy food and lifestyle blog, this is the bread and (almond) butter of my soul.
