Simple recipes and fantastic food for a healthy way of life
Deliciously Ella is back! After publishing her first cook book only one year ago, in January 2015, the healthy food blogger has published her second book called: Deliciously Ella Every Day. It’s easy to be healthy until you get hungry. Making healthy eating sustainable is about two things. One: it’s got to be doable in the context of a time starved life. Two: it’s got to be delicious. Ella Woodward’s newest cookbook will help you find quick recipes for breakfasts, packed lunches, snacks on the go, and stress-free meals. Ella’s first cookbook, Deliciously Ella, was the bestselling debut cookbook ever in the UK and her app has been a bestseller for the last year. She started out as a blogger in 2012 and now gets over six million hits a month, with nearly 500,000 Instagram followers. Her philosophy is all about showing that healthy living is fun and enjoyable; it’s not about deprivation or starvation.
About the author
“I started my blog as a way of dealing with a relatively rare illness, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, which I was diagnosed with in September 2011. The illness had a pretty devastating effect on my life – I literally couldn’t walk down the street, I slept for 16 hours a day, had never ending heart palpitations, was in chronic pain, had unbearable stomach issues, constant headaches and the list goes on – it was anything but fun! I tried healing through conventional medicine for about six months but it had little effect on my symptoms and I was still bed-ridden 95% of the time. So I decided it was time for something new and began researching holistic, natural healing approaches, which is how I started eating like this. Overnight I took up a whole foods, plant-based diet and gave up all meat, dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed and all chemicals and additives, which was a pretty drastic change. I literally never ate fruit or vegetables before, my diet instead revolved around Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Chocolate, peanut butter and jelly eaten with a spoon, pick-n-mix and lots of cereal and pasta – I was a sugar monster! So everything you see here is part of my learning and healing process, I’m not a trained chef by any means – everything is self-taught and the result of lots of failed experiments!
I graduated from St Andrews with a Masters in Art History in May 2013 and I’m back home in London working on a lot of awesome projects. I released my best-selling app earlier this year, which I’m always working on (it’s available on the iTunes store and the google play store). I also teach cooking classes, host supper and brunch clubs and I’m training as a naturopathic nutritionist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.” – Ella
