I'm Kelly, a mother, wholefood writer, stylist & photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand.

I'm thrilled you've stopped by. Please have a look around and wander through my recipes. Hopefully it is obvious, that while I've got a serious passion for wholesome real food, I'm definitely a food lover first and foremost. My aim is to show people that healthy food can be utterly delicious and full of joy. 

I’m a huge believer in forgetting diets forever, losing all guilt around food and never imposing a way of eating on yourself that doesn’t make you truly happy.  Starting to eat mindfully and really noticing how different foods make you feel is key for me. You’ll never need to worry about whether you’re following the right dietary path because your body will be telling you.

My debut cookbook 'Wholehearted' will be released by Beatnik Publishing on March 1st 2016. I can't wait to share it with you.

You can check out my weekly wholefoods column “Green Mondays” for  Dish Magazine for even more of my recipes

I've worked in hospitality extensively; in Melbourne, New York and Auckland.  I helped open and then ran the wonderful Golden Dawn bar in Auckland for it's first two years. I've had the pleasure of MCing the Chefs Kitchen at Taste Of Auckland for the last couple of years. Outside of this, I also periodically run  my own wholefood workshops and cooking demos.

 My writing and photography work has appeared in Dish Magazine, Fashion Quarterly, Homestyle, Remix Magazine, Green Ideas, Little Treasures and more. I consult for food brands too. Assisting with recipe development, concepts and styling.
