Well hello there! It’s nice to have you here. I’m Abby, and I love food, blankets, candles, books, and stationery. I’m also the writer behind this here blog you’re looking at.

I’m something of a health and wellness junkie, so here in my happy little corner of the internet, you’ll find a delicious concoction of all things health and wellness, including plant-based recipes, wellbeing tips, happy stories, things to get excited about and other lifestyle musings/thoughts/ramblings. Oh, and some travel. Because why the heck not not.

If you’re wondering how this whole blog came about, here are 5 reasons for you to get your teeth into:

  1. I love writing, health and wellbeing, cooking, fitness, travel and photography. What better way to combine my interests?
  2. I want to inspire people to eat less meat and dairy, and more plants – for the animals, the planet, and health.
  3. I get asked for recipes* fairly often, so hopefully you’ll find something yummy here that you’d like to cook! All my recipes are healthy, plant-based, and they’re often gluten free, too, as my husband Luke doesn’t do too well with the old wheat. *My recipes go through a vigorous testing process, AKA, my husband. So, if they don’t taste delicious, you know who to blame. Sorry, Luke.
  4. Without going into all the boring detail, over the past few years I’ve learnt a lot about myself through cognitive behaviour therapy, counselling, and self development. I like to think I’m now pretty good at managing my mental health, staying positive, and knowing what to do to ensure I live my best, happiest life possible. So while I’m no expert in the mental health arena, I believe I’ve got a few tips and tricks up my sleeve that might be worth sharing!
  5. I don’t think there is a 5th reason, but I prefer to end a list on a nice round number. 4 just won’t do.

Please feel free to grab a cuppa and have a look around, just like you would when your friend is showing you her new house. You can leave your shoes on though, I’m not fussy.
