The Basics & Nourishing Soups
Hi, I’m Fi, a home cook since my teens, I grew up in the hospitality industry, spending most weekends at our family restaurant. My mum was the head chef and I was surrounded by incredible cooks.
My intention is to inspire you to fall in love with vegetables and learn how to transform plants into mouth-watering, unbelievable meals your friends and family will keep coming back for.
It was in 2007 when my philosophy around food and health took a sharp turn. The sudden passing of my father from a heart attack, prompted me to question everything about health. I couldn’t understand why my healthy, 60-year old father was taken from us so early. Six months after his passing, I was at Unleash the Power, a Tony Robbins event, and the last day of the seminar was all about health and vitality. People talk about those life changing moments; those light bulb moments, where something major shifts inside them. That’s the best way I can describe that day.
I left that seminar with a whole new outlook on health and well being and dove deep into vegetarianism and a plant-based lifestyle. I slowly moved towards a wholefoods diet, removing meat, seafood, dairy, refined sugars and flours. I learned the healing power of plants and the importance of eating food as close to its whole form.
Over the past 13 years I have continued to educate myself around plant-based eating. I’ve re-created so many traditional recipes my mum taught me to suit my eating preferences. I’ve created new flavours and experimented with ingredients that were once foreign to me. Today, my diet is predominately plant-based. I occasionally have dairy. I do indulge in refined pasta and flours from time to time, and still love my sweet treats.
Together with my husband, we are raising our two children (now 8 and 10) 95% plant-based, with the inclusion of some dairy and eggs. Our family thrives as a predominantly plant-based tribe.<
