My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
