Welcome to The Gowlett, the one stop ‘shop’ for all your healthy eating requirements!
Are you stuck in a rut and need some inspiration and motivation to get yourself on the right track? Do you find yourself getting home from work, ordering a take away, getting comfortable on the couch and letting the night go to waste? That was what i was doing 5/6 time a week which was what led me to create The Gowlett. It is so easy to get comfortable and lazy (if we are being honest) and after making dramatic life changes myself, i knew i had the tools to help others and had proved it was possible. It was the best thing i have ever done for myself.
Allow me to introduce myself and tell you a little about my journey. My name is Leah, i’m a part time student, part time bank worker and in my spare time a ‘professional’ chef and recipe creator. Around two years ago, i realised i wasn’t happy, i’d settled in my life and lost all motivation. I’d lost the urge to learn and grow and that moment of realisation inspired me to create The Gowlett.
I have always had a passion for cooking, from cooking what on reflection was probably a dreadful spaghetti Carbonara for my 11th Birthday Dinner Party, to now spending my weekends baking salt crumb sourdough bread and making fresh smoothies every morning.
I didn’t decide to start eating healthy for the usual reason of wanting to lose weight, i did it because using healthy ingredients to create delicious meals is so rewarding and leading a healthy lifestyle not only benefits your body but your mind too.
Since i made the lifestyle changes to use ingredients that were better for me and making meals from scratch i have noticed a huge difference in my wellbeing which is why i want to share my experiences, recipes, tips and tricks and anything else that pops into my mind with my readers!
