Oh hi there! And welcome to Choosing Chia!
My names Jess, it’s great to meet you!
I started this blog as a platform to share my healthy recipes and show people that eating clean does not mean limiting yourself to a plate of vegetables and almonds. Here you will find healthy vegetarian recipes with a focus on wholesome plant-based ingredients. You will also find plenty of options to suit vegan, gluten-free, and other diets too!
My philosophy is simple:
Eat more plants, shop locally when you can (hello farmer’s market!) and focus on fresh & seasonal ingredients. By following these guidelines you’ll easily nourish your body with the nutrients you need to feel at your best!
Be inspired by what is around you, take trips to your local market, and shop for a variety of different coloured foods. (not only are they pretty, but every colour is filled with different vitamins and nutrients, win!)
Also, remember not to be too hard on yourself and indulge in the things you love from time to time. (because seriously guys, what’s life without chocolate?)
Every person is different, and eating well is a journey. Listen to your body, be kind to yourself and find the right balance that works for you. Healthy eating should not feel like a chore, it should be fun…and delicious!
I hope Choosing Chia can inspire you to incorporate more fruits & veggies in your diet and most importantly to have fun in the kitchen!
