Hey! I’m Shan, thanks for stopping by. This blog is about My Food Religion, making healthy meals that taste delicious! Healthy does NOT have to equal bland. I love to cook nutritious, wholesome food that is preservative, additive and artificial everything free. I prefer to use ingredients that are as close to their natural state as possible and have been through minimal processing. I am not vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, fat-free, carb-free or any other food “denomination” in its entirety. I take what I like from different food approaches and recipes and adapt it to suit what make me feel good.
I’m a mum, a foodie and a coffee & bacon addict. I have a background in science and animal health & have done a wellness coaching course. I have done my certificate IV in Fitness, taught boxing classes and the occasional bootcamp. I am constantly researching into nutrition and various ‘food religions’ and love to learn about food, how our body’s process it and respond to it. I have a huge passion for gut health & cannot get ENOUGH of learning all about the gut microbiome and how it affects so many aspects of our body!
The thing with food and nutrition is, everyone’s body responds differently to different macro and micro-nutrients… You can’t “broad brush” nutrition which is why so many “diets” fail, they are not one size fits all. Our digestive and physiological make-up are a direct result of a life-time of conditioning: How many meals/day are you used to consuming, how large or small are your portions, have you consumed predominately carbs, proteins or fats throughout your ‘eating life’? ? I love healthy food and I love to experiment with food. I hope you enjoy following me on this food journey, I am sure there will some “MasterChef” moments, as well as some “DisasterChef” ones (no comment required Dad!), so come along for the ride!
