ABOUT THE FOUNDER
I'm Alana. Integrative Health Practitioner, plant-based and lover of life.
As a child, I always had cake mix in my hair while running around in long grass, surrounded by the fragrance of fresh fruit and being immersed by cows and chooks - yep, I lived on a farm. And, I loved it!
However, as I began kindy and later primary school, I soon fell into the trap of believing that I was wasn't good enough. After all, I thought, who am I to love food and nature because no one else loved it? In fact, they all played sports, had technology and looked as both sexy and thin (shouldn't I too…). This was only worsened by a brutal bullying experience which later led to extreme dieting and exercising.
By the beginning of my high school years, I developed anorexia (age 13) and refused to eat anything (read more in my newest cookbook). After my eating disorder, I suffered ongoing gut complications (SIBO/IBS/parasites), hypothalamic amenorrhea (absent periods), insomnia, anxiety, depression, anaemia, and the list went on.
What broke me was also what fixed me. At the age of 20, I began to remember that I was (am) good enough in every cell of my body. I also had to learn to eat all I desired without fear.
In 1 month I got a period, within 2 months I began my cookbook project, within 4 months I realised I had an army of friends, within 6 months I met a soul-friend. And now, I am currently living back on the farm doing what I love, sharing and creating food.
