owner and author of Healthy Living with Sarah
I'm a woman in her 50's who just loves food! My passion for cooking started in my early teens and has evolved ever since. Being a mum of three, I've coped with the juggling of mealtimes while balancing a budget. And over the years as my children have grown up and left home, I have found that I have become more interested in being more creative without being pretentious. I have many styles all of which depend on my mood for the day, but for me, the core of my passion for creating good food is that it needs to be simple, tasty and make people smile!
But more than that, I love the whole wellbeing vibe, and in 1998, I qualified as a fitness and weight management instructor and have run classes in Norwich for almost 22 years. The classes consist of weight management, nutrition support, motivation and exercise.
In late 2015 Rosemary Conley CBE asked me to create a complete selection of healthy recipes for her new book called Rosemary Conley's 3-2-1 Diet Book which was sold worldwide - it was such an honour to devise and create those simple recipes that I got the recipe bug. But beyond just writing recipes, I have created many of the healthy eating weight loss plans for the www.getslim.co.uk website, including a lean and clean program, complete lifestyle change plan which includes both gluten-free and plant-based versions, so I really understand what it means to have a balanced lifestyle which encompasses both food and activity.
In August last year, I released my first ever healthy eating weight loss book. The results in the trials were amazing and I lost 2 stones in just over eight weeks without counting a single calorie! It's packed full of great recipes, a 21-day starter plan and much more! You can purchase a copy from the book section of this site - click here
I love creating recipes, inspiring people to try new things, whether it be food or exercise. For me it's all about the bigger picture in helping people get fitter, healthier and feel better about themselves and this site is aimed at just that!
The recipes on this lovely site come from the heart, my heart and I really believe every recipe should be delicious and simple to make. It's all about having good food that makes you smile! Some of them are a bit naughty (it's ok to have a treat occasionally), some very healthy but all of them are delicious, and there are lots that are time and budget-friendly too! If you are looking for cutting edge novelle cuisine, then this site is probably not for you, but if you want inspiration, healthy wellbeing advice, great recipes that make good food and a bit of food and wellbeing information (see my blog) then you will love everything here!o
