Hi I’m Juliette, this blog is my way of sharing my recipes & love of plant-based raw foods.
I find preparing food this way really uncomplicated & captivating; it helps me to feel calm & it’s fun to do.
I especially love how raw foods make me feel. It’s such a simple, peaceful, vibrant way to eat. Most of the work has been done for me already.
Focusing on my diet in this way has taken me from feeling bloated, ill & fatigued to feeling fantastic!
For a long time I felt constantly tired & my digestion was really poor. I struggled with always feeling uncomfortable & exhausted. Anything I ate felt like a lead weight hit my stomach. I also struggled for years with mental health issues ranging from stress, anxiety, difficulty thinking clearly, ptsd & at times depression.
Since I learned about the connection between gut health & mental health I became slightly obsessed with researching & experimenting in the kitchen.
Gradually I stopped relying on things like bread, pasta & processed foods & began replacing them with more seasonal plant-based foods instead, particularly fresh fruits & vegetables, fermented foods & micro-greens.
I’ve been inspired to make these changes after discovering people like Kris Carr, Ocean Robbins, Kelly Brogan MD, Sandor Katz, Russell James, Deliciously Ella.
Their work showed me how what I ate influenced everything I was struggling with & that I had the power to change it.
I noticed that the best changes came when I started to focus on including more raw foods in my diet.
Now I enjoy an abundance of fresh fruits, leafy greens, alkalising vegetables, smoothies, soaked & sprouted nuts, seeds, grains & legumes + plenty more.
From bowls full of fruit in summer to warming soups in the winter it’s always fresh, delicious, easy-to-make & mostly (but not all) raw.
Why I'm here now
After running a health store for 10 years I took time off to care for my family & decided to change careers. I studied how to be a raw food teacher, a raw food coach & how to create raw vegan recipes.
I'm excited now to share with you my recipes & what I've learnt to help you on your own journey.
My diet is more vibrant, colourful & varied than ever before.
I don't believe that restriction, dieting or calorie counting works for everyone.
Instead I’ve found that researching & applying my own strategies while developing new eating habits has made a huge difference.
Sharing a love of deliciously fresh & vibrant whole foods is one of my greatest joys. I'm so grateful for the opportunity & to be able to share my passion with you.
