Hello, and thank you so much for stopping by! I can't quite believe that I'm doing this, starting a whole new blog and beginning again from nothing, but here I am. I'm Nicole and for the past three years I have written a lifestyle blog, posting all about adventures I'd been on, little things that made me happy, the books I'd gotten lost in and the things I love. I changed a lot in those three years, going from a sleep deprived student who survived purely on pasta, toast and chocolate to a healthy food lover who enjoys nothing more than spending hours in the kitchen, creating delicious meals and yummy treats. It was about a year and a half ago that I realised how unhealthy I was. I'd just started working full-time and I hated how awful I felt, sitting down at a desk all day, feeling exhausted all the time from a high sugar, low veggie diet, and I knew I had to do something about it. I joined the gym, fell in love with vegetables and healthy eating and I have never felt better - and, well, the rest is history. 

So, here I am starting a brand new space where I can share my passion for food and health. I am so proud of how far my lifestyle blog has come, and how much it helped me to grow as a person, but I just wasn't happy with it anymore because I had lost my love for it. For a long time I thought about starting a food blog, but I never had the confidence to do it. Until now, because if I don't do it now I don't think I ever will. Looking after yourself is so important and that starts with what we put into ourselves. In this space I hope to inspire more of you to lead a healthier life, to share easy, healthy and yummy recipes with you and to spread my love of food.

All of the recipes will be vegetarian as I recently decided to cut meat from my diet, which was quite  easy as I rarely ate meat anyway, and I feel so much better for it (I'll be doing a whole post on this soon so watch out for that). I'm also considering taking it a step further and going vegan, however, I need to look a little more into that first but from what I've found out so far it sounds like it would be a wonderful change. If any of you reading this are vegan then let me know your thoughts, I'd love to hear about your experience! 

I hope you will stick around and follow my adventures in the kitchen because I can't wait to get started. I'm so excited about this blog and I hope you will enjoy it too. 

If you'd like to stay up to date with all my new recipes and posts then you can follow me on Bloglovin', Twitter or Instagram - I'd love to see you there!
