The Cookies & Clean Story
“I’ve got so many happy memories of childhood and mostly they come from baking with my mother.”
Ever since I was little I loved to help my mother cook.
Desserts, specifically. Main course didn’t interest me so much.
Mum used to throw lavish dinner parties back in the 80’s. I used to get so exciting helping her bake things like chocolate mousse, black forest cake and trifle. If I was lucky, I got to lick every bowl clean. If I was even luckier, I got to stay up for these sophisticated parties and sample the fare.
But as I grew, I lost this passion somewhere between a negative body image and not enough time.
Sadly, I stopped baking.
Today, I’m hugely passionate about health and fitness. I run regularly, cycle, skip & practice yoga. This doesn’t mean that I can eat what I want to. Even if I could, I wouldn’t. Over the years I’ve discovered first-hand, some of the effects excessive sugar, dairy, caffeine and alcohol can have on the mind and body.
Over the past 12 months I’ve slowly introduced myself to the raw / paleo food movement. And whilst I’m by no means a convert, I have adopted many of the principles.
With fantastic results too, I might add.
The best thing about cooking clean is that I can finally enjoy “sweet food” and start baking again! And hopefully provide some happiness and inspiration to you along the way.
