WELCOME TO EAT UNIQUE


MY STORY

Welcome to Eat Unique. Quite a few years ago, I started making healthy food swaps,  white rice and pasta, to wholegrain, white flour to spelt and wholegrain, white sugar to unrefined coconut sugar, unrefined golden caster sugar, raw honey and maple syrup.  Still sugar but just less processed.   

My family and I feel so much better for it.  

Now I truly wish to inspire others to do the same!  

Once you swap to wholegrain pasta and brown rice, you will find that you are fuller for longer as they take longer for your body to digest and release glucose into the bloodstream more steadily.  This means you will no longer have that horrible feeling when your blood sugar spikes and you have to eat something immediately (usually something naughty and sugary!!) You will simply benefit from slow-release energy! Win Win!!



ABOUT ME

To further my passion for eating healthier and to further my knowledge and understanding of nutrition, I studied a Level 4 Advanced Nutrition Diploma with Future Fit Training who are affiliated with the Associated for Nutrition (AFN).  

I qualified in September 2016 with a Level 3 City & Guilds in the following:

Nutrition & Weight Management  
Nutrition for Sport & Exercise
Pre & Post Natal Nutrition
Childhood Nutrition & Obesity Prevention
Behaviour Change Coaching

The courses really helped me understand the science and importance of consuming a healthy balanced diet.  I now understand the role that micro & macro nutrients, vitamins and minerals play in order for our bodies to function to the best of their abilities.

Since qualifying, I am now registered with Nutritics who provide amazing nutritional dietary analysis software.

Every recipe that I write provides you with a full nutritional breakdown, including macronutrients which are the energy, protein, carbohydrates and fats and the micronutrients which are the vitamins and minerals.  


INSPIRATION

I have attended several cookery courses over the years and have learned a huge range of culinary skills

My food inspiration comes from many European holidays taken with my family over the years.  Most of my recipes are aimed at families who wish to cook healthy nutritionally balanced meals.  The recipes are fresh, colourful, fully tested and most importantly taste delicious. 

Most of my recipes are seasonal for optimum nutrition and flavour.  They are aimed for people with busy lives who don't have time to cook elaborate fussy meals and who want to eat healthier.

 They are easy to follow and are perfect for mid week dinners with a quick turnaround!  There are one or two that require a little more time and effort, perhaps for the weekend when you have a little more time...

I have created all recipes myself, taken every photo and taught myself web design.  I am a recipe developer, food stylist and a nutrition adviser.

I really hope you enjoy using this website.  I will be adding recipes on a weekly basis so make sure you keep coming back!
