WELCOME TO 'THE LITTLE PLANTATION'
My name is Kimberly and I live in the wonderfully vibrant, cosmopolitan city that is London, England with my amazing son and fabulous husband. (I’m a lucky gal, huh?). I’m a nutritional therapist, yoga teacher, self-taught food photographer, food and prop stylist and a recipe developer. I'm also the Bitter Foods Feed editor over on TheFeedFeed. AND I’m a little bit very obsessed about plant-based food. (Want to know a tiny bit more about what I do and don't eat? Then head over to this post and if you'd like to know what I feed my family, I suggest you read this post here as well as this one). There's a little interview with me here on the Vermillion Roots blog, here on Wife Mama Foodie's blog, here on Loving Earth's website, here in Izzie + Sky magazine and a teeny tiny one here on Wayfair's website too.
ABOUT THIS BLOG
This blog is essentially the result of my mini mid-life crisis! You know when you stop and reflect on who you are and what’s important to you and suddenly realise that your dreams and hopes are taking a bit of a backseat? Well, plant-based food is important to me, nutrition is important to me, creativity is important to me, following my heart is important to me, so – tada! – in May 2014 The Little Plantation was born. (You can read more about my aspirations for the blog here).
In this space I share my love for:
1. FOOD: Simple, healthy, easy and really delicious vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan recipes for the whole family. (I have a picky 6-year-old to feed and know how tough that can be). Dairy and sugar don't feature much on this site, but great tasting, seasonal and wholesome plant-based ingredients do. Often my recipes are also paleo and gluten-free, though - be warned - not always.
So does that mean this blog is only for vegans/vegetarians/hippychicks? Most certanly not ;)! I'm more than happy for you to pick and choose the recipes that resonate with you. I try not to be too dogmatic and appreciate that everyone's gotta walk their own path and find what works for them in their own sweet time, right?! But if I can get you to eat a few more veg and try a plant-based ingredient you never heard of before, than I'll be pretty chuffed!
2. NUTRITION AND WELLNESS: I muse a little about nutrition, wellness and yoga and in particular share my thoughts on how whole foods have the mind-blowing potential to nourish us and make us happy. Sorry, I just can’t help it, but it’s blooming interesting to think that Pacha Mama can give us all that we need to feel great.
I also believe that living a mainly plant-based lifestyle, filled with organic, local and seasonal food isn't just good for us but also pretty fab for the planet. However I love a good debate so if you think differently, get in touch and let's talk it over, shall we?
3. FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY: I am constantly striving to make every element of this blog better and have become particularly obsessed with food photography. So much so that I've dedicated various posts to the subject. If you're interested to read more about my food photography journey and all the lessons learned along the way then please just click here.
Take care and THANK YOU so much for popping by.
