Having spent my early years as a chef, running my London based catering company La Sauce, I discovered a passion for creating delectable dishes that feed our body. Furthering my education I wanted to understand how our body performs with increased nutrition. Studying at Patrick Holford’s Institute of Optimum nutrition and later at Mathew Kenney’s raw food academy in LA. This lead me to a more rounded understanding of our overall health and wellbeing and to the launch of Raw Chi Lifestyle in 2010.
Over the years I’ve worn many hats, I’ve enjoyed coaching people to improve both their physical and mental health through small changes in their diet. Teaching at my cookery school in Cheshire, gave me immense joy, engaging with people and seeing them create dishes to offer to their family and friends. I have been invited as a motivational speaker at the BBC Good Food Live shows, OM Yoga shows and wrote my Chocolate book, The Alchemy of Chocolate.
For the last 5 years I have taking a career break to growing my beautiful family. In 2016 we welcomed our beautiful baby boy Tate into the world and in 2018 our edible daughter Paige. During this time I have continued to engage my creative side by studying a diploma in Interior Design and together with my husband we have built a 6 bedroom subterrain family home in Cheshire.
Now in todays unsettling times where our lives have been tipped upside down and expressions such as “the new normal” crop up everyday and “Blursday” is actually a thing! I feel now more than ever that we need to focus our attention to our nest. I’m a great believer in happiness begins in the home. It used to be where many of us start and end our day and now its where many of us spend all our days. By creating a haven where we feel calm, utilising our space in a way that works for us, opening the windows, allowing creative flow, lighting lovely smelling candles, filling our home with love and care, declutter our space, cooking the food that feeds the soul all of this can assist in our wellbeing and can make these changing times easier to manage.
Raw Chi Lifestyle has had a makeover of its own and has evolved with my every changing life, now the focus is on my three passions in life, optimising nutrition through superfood nutrition, looking after my skin with natural, organic, divine skincare even be kind to my skin when doing the dishes, which is why I’ve extended my products to include the fabulous Meraki range and lastly sharing my passion for fabulous home interiors, hopefully fulfilling most of our lifestyle needs.
