I’m Sally. Self-confessed fitness + health foodie lover

Born in the UK, I moved to Australia a few nine 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, recipe development and commercial food photography. I am 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 dream to launch my own healthy snack business (Fit Mixes - now sold), and working with international clients on shoots, I released my first cookbook - Love Move Eat (Bauer Books, March 2017). My second book - Meal Prep Plan was released in Sept 2019 with Murdoch and Jan 2020 for American fans with Simon & Schuster.

I now spend my days working with clients shooting imagery for cookbooks and advertorials around the world (see www.sallyoneilphotography.com) and studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional + Dietetic Medicine.

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 and happy.

Bon Appetit!
