I’m Sally. Self-confessed fitness + health foodie lover.
Born in the UK, I moved to Australia
a few six years ago to enjoy a little more sunshine. Living near Bondi will tend to have you review your bikini body once in a while, but in my attempt to ditch the apple crumbles and focus on nutrition I was subjected to a lot of plain low-calorie food. After a few months I learnt one thing: life is better with chocolate. And apple crumble. So my experimenting began and The Fit Foodie was born.
I generally focus my attention on concocting high-protein foods packed with good fats and wholesome nutrients. This helps me to maintain lean muscle and sustain my energy levels. Processed foods that are high in salt, sugar and trans-fats are out. Unfortunately not a lot of supermarkets cater for this, so my inner city Sydney apartment holds my rather tiny test kitchen. It doesn’t always go to plan, but when it does I share the recipes to inspire other clean-eating journeys.
Blogging about my foodie adventures (and subsequently overcoming orthorexia) has propelled me into freelance journalism and photography, developing and shooting recipes and writing for a number of national health magazines. I am now a proud Ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, working to spread the word on real food in Sydney and beyond. After becoming a yoga teacher, following a crazy dream to launch my own healthy snack business (Fit Mixes), and working with big clients to style and photograph their food products, I was approached to write my very first cookbook – Love Move Eat (Random House, March 2017). What was once a website to share recipes with my mum back home, has now grown a little, and I am forever grateful to every single person who pops over to my site every now and then to take away some inspo.
The Fit Foodie blog is a hub for all things healthy, fit, stylish, aspirational and influential. Sharing my passion for wellbeing and fitness, my mission is to give you the information and inspiration to feel nourished, happy and empowered.
