“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life!”
Welcome to The Vegetarian Treehouse. The name of this blog is a tribute to our flat in London and all the culinary inspiration it brought to me. When I initially started blogging I had no intention for it to amount to much, I was just doing it to keep myself busy while preparing to move to Doha. Now it has made me realise where my true passion lies and I have manifested this passion into a living.
My discovery of plant based food started four years ago. I was suffering from liver damage, caused mainly by prescription medication. That’s when I decided to take my health into my own hands and embark on this beautiful journey of health and wellness. I managed to get my liver back in good shape after a year of intense cleansing and eating plant based foods.
My obsession with ensuring I was fuelling my body with pure goodness led me to study Plant Based Nutrition at Cornell University. Since then I have co-authored a cookbook to help people with food allergies “What’s Left To Eat?”. I have a catering business providing natural, whole, plant-based foods in Doha, Qatar. I also work as a chef on yoga retreats, where I prepare nutrient rich meals with local, seasonal produce, and run healthy cooking workshops.
I want to spread the knowledge I have gained in order to cultivate awareness around the benefits of eating delicious and nourishing plant based foods. I believe that if we have the right tools, we can empower ourselves to both heal, and reconnect with our bodies.
So, I hope you enjoy the recipes I put up and please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have by either posting a comment or emailing me vegetariantreehouse[at]gmail[dot]com
