Hi I’m Juliette, this blog is my way of sharing my recipes & love of plant-based raw foods.

I especially love how they make me feel. It’s such a peaceful, colourful, vibrant way to eat. I find preparing food this way really captivating & uncomplicated; it helps me to feel calm. Most of the work has been done for me already & I feel really good about what I eat.

My Story


For a long time I felt constantly tired & my digestion was really poor. I struggled with always feeling bloated & fatigued. Anything I ate felt like a lead weight hit my stomach. I also struggled for years with mental health issues ranging from stress, anxiety, not 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. I gradually stopped relying on things like bread, pasta & processed foods & began replacing them with more fresh seasonal plant-based foods instead particularly fruit & vegetables.


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.

Focusing on my diet in this way has taken me from feeling bloated, ill & fatigued to feeling fantastic! 



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 food recipes.

I'm excited 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. Researching, applying my own strategies & developing new habits has made the 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.
