Hi, I’m Katie.
How do you sum yourself up succinctly for those who don’t already know you? I suppose I would say I’m ‘a thirty-something, mostly London based, lover of food who is chatty and like to read and cook.’ I also like being in nature and I’m passionate about all things health, wellbeing and minimising waste. And talking about these things.
This site is a creative outlet for the things that I am passionate about: food, fitness, travel, caring for yourself, health, wellbeing – all the things I bore my friends and family with on a daily basis. It’s also going to be documenting a new and exciting chapter of my life as I undertake a qualification to become a Nutritional Therapist. It’ll be part sharing things I love and part holding myself to account.
By way of background, I haven’t always been this health conscious. Living on my own for the first time at university and the years immediately thereafter my diet and lifestyle weren’t great. I had no idea about how to feed myself healthily on a budget and combined with a total lack of exercise I was pretty clueless about the kinds of things I should be eating and doing to make my body feel happy.
As you’ll see if you have a look around, things are pretty different now and I’m really passionate about how to make realistic healthy choices in every area of our lives – from eating, to moving and travelling to commuting. So this is me, sharing the stuff that gets me excited because I believe everyone has the right to feel amazing, regardless of who they are or what they do.
By way of a caveat, I’m by no means a dietician or a chef. I’m not a doctor nor a personal trainer. I’m me, talking about what I like doing and hoping that others enjoy the things I’m sharing and what I’m learning throughout my Nutrition studies.
Thanks for allowing me to talk about vegetables.
