That would be me! I'm Nicola, a British-born food and travel writer currently based in a teeny tiny beach-front apartment in Tenerife, Canary Islands. Since I had my first spoonful of mashed peas and carrots as a baby I've always loved eating. And since my grandma showed me just how easy it is to make your own amazing chocolate cupcakes when I wasn't even tall enough to see over the counter, I've loved cooking.

When I quit my office job and began working as a freelancer from home, I was terrified I was going to put on so much weight. So instead of taking advantage of the kitchen being literally ten steps away from my desk, I dedicated my time to developing exciting, healthy recipes that taste just as good better than their full-fat full-sugar counterparts and creating fun workouts that are easy to fit into a busy schedule and can be done at home.

I really do believe that life is all about balance. I want to be perfectly honest with you: I don't workout every day and I don't eat healthily 100% of the time. I live by the 80-20 mantra: healthy 80% of the time and not-so-healthy 20% of the time. Finding the right balance that works for me has helped me maintain an overall healthy lifestyle for years and it's what I want to inspire you to achieve!
