What's Eating Her
Real Food and Simple Home Cooking
I'm Sam, founder of this blog, thirty-something mum of one and complete food obsessive. I'm always planning my next meal (I mean, always).
I like to think of myself as a creative home cook. I design and prepare simple, tasty recipes, using wholesome ingredients. I can't categorise myself more than that, I don't like to commit. But just so you know, I eat meat, but not in large quantities, flexitarian you might say (again, I'm hesitant to commit to the label as it may change).
Most of my recipes are vegetarian, some vegan and there will be the odd meat or fish dish from time to time just as there is in my everyday life. A couple of habits I try to maintain is avoid anything labelled low fat, calorie counting and refined sugar. So, aside from the dos, the don'ts, and the whole non-categorisation thing, expect recipes using real food which are never bogged down with complicated instructions, that's just not me. ;-)
I believe in putting good food into my body (#FoodIsFuel) and the power of eating well, it's benefited my health mentally as well as physically. I eat a well-balanced selection of all the food groups, limiting the processed stuff as much as possible. It's a way of life, a routine, and for me it simply meant practice and learning. I realise my approach won't appeal to everyone and I appreciate there are allergies, intolerance or specific needs for some. Therefore, I must add that I do not try to speak to you as a dietitian or nutritionist, but I'd like to share what works for me.
With all this in mind, if you're looking for ideas or inspiration for some tasty dishes and some simple techniques to expand your recipe repertoire, I hope you'll read on.
If you'd like to discuss my recipes or ideas then get in touch, I'm listening, and always keen to join forces or collaborate on a project.
