I am a plant foods chef, cooking instructor, and a full-time mum.
Some years ago, my children and I consciously transitioned from a lifetime of eating vegetarian to a purely plant-based lifestyle. The chief reason driving change was to consume more gently but the endless food opportunities it opened up for has been nothing short of unexpected.
Along the way, we have dodged many curious questions such as, "Wow. How limiting!" (Not really!), "What about protein?" (What about it?) or "Aren't you hungry all the time?" (With all this fibre? Err..NO!) Jokes aside, these are all very valid questions and I just let the pictures do the talking.
A minimalist, I approach cooking with ascetic simplicity, borrowing rather heavily from my Asian roots. My menus are global and eclectic; dishes lavished with a range of whole grains, greens, fresh produce and fragrant spices.
The deep satisfaction derived from eating this way isn't easily explained but definitely worth experiencing. When you feel ready, I hope to hear from you!
