Hi my name is Elizabeth, but please call me Lizzie! I am an Intensive Care Nurse with a passion for good food and nutrition. So much so I will begin studying for my MSc in Human Nutrition this September, and I couldn’t be more excited!
This blog was born from a love of cooking and sharing healthy(ish), delicious recipes. The food I love to cook is often quick, easy and full of flavour. These days I am trying to incorperate more and more fruits and vegetables into my meals, and although I still eat some meat, fish and dairy you will find quite a few of the recipes I share are vegan or vegetarian. If not, many of the recipes can be adapted to suit these dietary preferences. While I strongly advocate a diet high in fruits, veggies, legumes, pulses and whole-grains I am a firm believer that restricting certain food groups or ‘bad’ foods is not the key to a healthy and happy diet. My favourite food is pizza, the more cheese the better, and if anyone tries to take that away from me I will fight them 🙃
I’m really passionate about spreading information and education on good nutrition, that is based on quality scientific evidence and not the latest dietary trend. As I learn more about nutrition I would love to share some of the things that I learn with you. And in a years time when I am (hopefully!) a registered nutritionist I would love to be able to use this platform offer more personalised and holistic nutrition support.
I live with my boyfriend and head recipe taster, Mike, and our cat and fluffy stress ball, Puss. We’re based in Manchester at the moment although in the last year we’ve lived in both Nottingham and West Sussex. When I’m not working you can find me in the gym or binging Netflix (#balance) and I love going out for dinner and drinks. If there’s a Tapas restaurant nearby you can bet i’ll find it.
I hope you enjoy what you find here on Elizabeth Chloé. This blog has been a dream of mine for a very long time and I’m really excited that I finally get to share it with you! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest so do come and say hi if you use those platforms. And if you’re really loving the content please subscribe!
