Our Story. Our Mission.
Every Goal begins with a plan…
My goal is to create a go-to hub of fast and fresh recipes that make you feel amazing from the inside out.
Welcome to Salted Mint. Over in our little corner of the web daring flavours and simple prep recipes are our jam. And the great news is we love sharing it all!
We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly.
If you’re looking to take control of your diet with big bold flavours and nutrient rich foods that can be the kick start you need to dropping some stubborn pounds and energising your self and your life, then, my friends you are in the right place.
Salted Mint was born out of a love of sharing food and recipes and a burning desire to empower people to make better decisions when it comes to dinner time, snack time or any other meal time. What you’ll find here are fresh recipes perfect for your busy lifestyle. We’ve taken all the guess work out of our recipes and have nutrition info and Weight Watchers points already calculated, because we know you’re busy, and that’s one way we can help you make more empowered choices around what you eat. #dreamjob
Eat better not less.
How it all started
You see, food has always been my life. I’m a professionally trained chef with experience in some of the UK’s best kitchens. I always dreamed of working in Michelin Star kitchens, but the kicker was that when I should have been at the top of my game, my health had never been poorer and my mood never lower. The long hours and the complete and total lack of emotional self care, left me under weight, sick and in some of my darkest days.
What happened to my love for food? I developed eating habits that led me to over eat all the wrong foods. High fat and carbs, that did nothing but make me lethargic and heavy. I was firm in my belief that healthy eating was never going to taste good. My greatest fear was that the food would be boring and bland and that I would be breaking up with one of the great loves of my life.
But, after catching a photo of myself I knew it had to change. I could not go on the way I was. There was no point. So, I did what anyone who wants to lose weight but doesn’t know how does… I joined Weight Watchers. I started counting points. And I started to see results. But the best part was that I started to feel results.
The journey here
What I realised is that what I ate had a direct effect on how I felt. Suddenly the extra pounds were secondary and I was obsessed with finding recipes and food that helped me feel the way I wanted to feel. This new way of eating just happened to have a direct effect on how I looked too. Win-win!
Eating well is a form of self respect.
But, committing to big goals can be a big deal and often kinda scary. They can be tough to achieve alone. My hope is that you, whatever goals you decide to commit to, never feel alone. You can join us on FB and Instagram to connect directly and you can follow along on Pinterest where you’ll find some awesome recipes and some seriously amazing and time saving meal planning tips and tricks. If you decide to make some changes for yourself and how you eat, so that you can change how you feel for the better, I’d love it if you stuck around and we could reach our goals together.
