Glowing skin in the morning

I tend to add strawberries and cucumber in my morning smoothies; they both contain anti-inflammatory properties which contribute towards a healthy body and glowing skin.

Food as fuel and enjoyment

I suffered from a multitude of teenage girl problems such as spots and fluctuating weight and anxiety; I was determined to control this by making a few lifestyle changes to ensure I enjoyed my food and gave my body the fuel it needs. Now my passion is to create recipes which are a healthier alternative to our everyday favorites that we can enjoy without that feeling of guilt.
