Simple, Tasty, Real Food

I love creating recipes to hopefully make your life a little easier and tastier!

Why

Suffering from ME/CFS for most of my life has shaped the way I cook. Luckily I enjoy cooking, but it has been out of necessity.

This is why my recipes are often:

EASY – few ingredients and flexible
QUICK – I haven’t the time or energy to spend hours making a dish
HEALTHY – I increase the vegetables, reduce the sugar and the fat – as this is the food I can eat.

I am a big believer in the importance of good wholesome food, and know how ill processed foods can make me feel, that’s why I steer away from them as much as possible.

Whilst I have to stay away from processed foods, I feel that we should all try to. It’s not easy in this time poor and increasingly expensive world we live in, but I hope my recipes can help.

I strongly believe you can eat healthily, even if you are short on time, cooking skills, and budget.

If you’re interested in learning more about ME/CFS, I’ve written a book about my experiences with it

Creative with Recipes

Being brought up in a household in the English countryside, most of our meals were made from scratch. It was second nature to be inventive with recipes, especially during the summer months when the vegetable patch dictated what we ate and led to the need for inventing new dishes from the bumper crops – how do you make runner beans exciting for the fifth meal in a row?! Leftovers were always used up too, and I am passionate about the drive against throwing away perfectly good food, not only is it such a waste, but expensive too!
