Hello lovelies welcome to my blog! I'm Emily a sustainability-minded chef and therapeutic psychology graduate living in London. I have a real passion for good quality, wholesome and delicious food and sustainable/ethical living.
I started Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy in my first year of university as a space to offer tips on being resourceful and avoiding waste, to share my recipe ideas and how easy it is to create delicious, wholesome meals that take no time at all and won't cost the world to make.
I have been a pescatarian/vegetarian for years now, I actually switched to a meat-free diet when I started university. This was mainly because I couldn't really afford good quality, sustainable and high welfare meat on a student budget. Switching to a mostly veggie diet actually sparked a real passion in me and a love for creating and developing my own recipes to share with others and I haven't looked back since. I currently eat a plantbased diet, that’s right…a diet consisting of mainly plants and wholefoods. However, I'm pretty 'flexy' and I am mostly intrested in sustainable/ ethically sourced food.
Diet is such a personal thing and I'm not here to preach to you about your choices and tell you to go veggie or plantbased , honestly that’s your decision! All I want is to show you that maybe you don't need to eat meat and dairy for every meal just out of habit and routine and that all you really need is some easy and tasty recipe ideas and inspiration so you don't feel bored or like you're missing out at mealtimes. Plus, it’s always a good idea to cut down on the processed and highly saturated fatty foods and eat more whole foods and veggies to feed your soul and your tummy!
So anyway, have a look around.. feel inspired and happy cooking!
