Start here

Just like me, this blog has been on a journey!

It all started with an instagram account which came into existence when I decided to join the masses and create a public food diary, a place to shame myself into eating ‘healthy’ and hold myself to account for all the ‘poor’ food choices I was making.

Fast forward to 2017 and that little old food account become so much more – it became my saviour, my go to and my road to recovery. After the loss of our twin daughters halfway through a much wanted pregnancy, I had a choice, I could either allow myself to spiral into an emotional black hole or I could take control, rebuild my life and find my therapy.

Food went from being the part of my life I restricted and obsessed over to something I began to get creative with and enjoy again – food became my therapy.

Today this blog and my Instagram are my healthy little something, they give me the creative outlet I need to mentally keep me on the straight and narrow, a space to write, to focus, explore, enjoy new recipes and celebrate a whole new world of food, drink and places to eat. Best of all, they give me access to a thriving network of like minded people who respect and embrace the fact that health and wellbeing come from a place of balance.

Here you’ll find all things food and lifestyle related from recipes and ramblings to mental health and fashion.

So welcome to the home of my healthy little something, I hope you find yours,
