I am a personal chef, cooking instructor, and a full-time mum.
Some years ago, my children and I slowly transitioned from a lifetime of vegetarianism to plant-based eating. The chief reason driving change was to consume more gently but the endless food opportunities it has opened up for us is 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.
An incurable 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. I try to keep a safe distance from extracted sugars and process whenever possible.
There is such a sense of clean from eating this way. It isn't something that can be explained but definitely worth experiencing. When you feel ready, I hope to hear from you!
