Changing how and what I eat has been transformational to my health and well being.
I started this blog to share my story. It will never carry any advertising or sponsorship. It’s a free resource so do share, enjoy and keep up to date by following.
I became gluten-free after period of severe illness in 2013. Read my full story here.
I believe real food is for everyone and can be enjoyed by the whole family. You don’t need to be a fashionista (yes, even to use a spiralizer!), follow the latest food trends or have lots of money and time (I wish), just enjoy eating.
For years we’ve been told by large food companies that they can make our lives easier by letting them cook or help us in the cooking process. But the truth is most processed food is full of additives and ingredients that put huge stress on our bodies and ultimately lead to a whole host of health issues. And the reality is it costs us more financially and can even use up more of our time.
This blog is not about telling you what you eat or how you cook is wrong. I’m a self taught home cook, Mum and food lover.
My goal is to show how easy, fun and most importantly delicious real food can be, saving you time, money and improving your health and how you feel.
Food is our fuel. What we eat directly affects our health, brain, well being and ultimately our quality of life.
And what amazing fuel it is. There is no need to deprive yourself of anything. I eat a wide range of foods and love fat (good fat from well reared animals, coconut oil, avocados etc), non refined sugars (raw honey, Maple Syrup), bacon, cheese, chocolate the list is endless.
What I don’t eat is inflammatory foods (that stress our bodies out and cause disease), refined sugar and processed food. I eat and cook real food that enriches and nourishes us and tastes amazing.
My journey to health started by understanding the role gluten sensitivity can play in creating neurological disease. For more info see my FAQ’s and to understand more about Gluten’s impact on the brain see here.
I have read about many wonderful people who have restored their health and life through what they eat.
I now understand how food affects us all and its power. It’s not only a great source of nutrition and enjoyment but can help prevent many illnesses and diseases.
It can also transform how we feel and what we can achieve, helping us live the best lives beyond our wildest dreams. My dream, is that in some small way this blog will help you on your own journey in life to do this.
I love this blog and hope you’ll enjoy my recipes and posts too.
With love, Tabitha
Real Food. Healthy Fuel. For a Happy Life.
