Hi I’m Yasmin – 20 year old plant based recipe developer and certified Health and Wellness Influencer.
I initially set up this blog to document my recovery from Anorexia, at a time when I had recently transitioned to a plant based diet. It’s then that I fell in love with plant based cooking and my excitement towards food was reignited. Now, I love nothing more than entering the kitchen armed with my favourite cookbooks and creating and sharing my own plant based recipes.
I want to prove that healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive or over complicated and I don’t concentrate on calories or macros, but simply on creating delicious recipes using wholefood ingredients which will truly nourish your body with every mouthful. For me, it’s all about filling your bowl with the best nutritious ingredients and waving goodbye to diet culture; I want to put the focus back on cramming in wholefoods, rather than cutting out.
I aim to show that plant based cooking can be truly delicious, simple and inexpensive and that it is possible to heal your relationship with food. I’m still very much on my own road to recovery, but I hope that by being open and honest about my own journey and sharing the challenges that I face, I can inspire others to be the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves.
