Hi, I'm Emily
I am a nutritional cook and busy mum of two, with a degree in Pharmacology and a previous career in TV production. I have always had a huge enthusiasm for cooking - ever since I was little, all I wanted to do was be in the kitchen with my mum, creating something delicious. After having children, I became increasingly aware of the power that food has in supporting good health and wellbeing and my passion for cooking began to evolve into a more proactive approach to my family’s diet and overall lifestyle.
I studied Nutrition in Practice at Leiths Cookery School in London, receiving a Level 3 NTEC Qualification and, since then, have made it my mission to help others create healthy, delicious and nutrient-dense food. Healthy eating can be a confusing minefield of mixed messages and scary headlines, so I aim to debunk the myths and simplify things in the kitchen.
My main ethos centres around positive nutrition - focusing on what you CAN eat, instead of what you can’t. I do not believe in unnecessarily demonising any particular food groups, like some highly publicised diets, unless medically recommended. I strongly believe in following a Mediterranean-inspired diet that is full of fresh produce, legumes, whole grains, healthy oils and small amounts of fish and meat; as well as, what I like to call, Colourful Nutrition - incorporating a varied rainbow of fruits and vegetables in our diets every day to increase our antioxidant levels and support our health and wellbeing as best we can.
