Who are you?
“I started writing my blog deliciouslyella.com nearly two years ago as a way to teach myself about healthy, plant-based food and heal myself of a rare illness, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, which I was diagnosed with in 2011. The illness left me bed-bound and I suffered with heart issues, stomach problems, constant pain, crazy fatigue and a whole host of other symptoms. I tried conventional medicine for about six months, but sadly I didn’t have much luck with it so I turned to diet, deciding to cut out all gluten, dairy, sugar and meat from my life as well as anything processed or refined. I hit a huge hurdle pretty quickly though – I couldn’t cook, not even a little bit. So I started a blog to encourage me to experiment in the kitchen and make something that seemed so restrictive into something so fun. Eighteen months after starting my healthy eating journey I was able to come off all my medication and now feel incredible. I’ve just released a best-selling healthy food app and am currently writing a cookbook, teaching cooking classes and studying as a nutritionist.”

What do you do?
“My blog is all about showing how amazing healthy food can be, moving it away from the stereotypes and helping people see that it can be unbelievably delicious and satisfying – it’s not about dieting, rather than learning to eat things that your body loves.”
