Hi, lovely beings!
Welcome to my space of sharing all the deliciousness, all the growth, all the transformation and all the healing.
My name is Mira and I’m passionate about conscious living, plant-based nourishment and holistic healing. I hope to inspire people to eat more plants which are better for the planet, animals and our bodies. I’ve been vegetarian since the womb (haha) and very grateful to have grown up in a veggie-friendly household with influences of macrobiotics and Ayurveda. But the idea of giving up dairy (mostly cheese) was always a struggle for me. I have loved cooking from a young age, I used to cook up a storm, to my mother’s horror (as I wasn’t a great cleaner of dishes), explaining to my imaginary cooking show audience with my wooden spoon as a microphone the step by step details of what I was doing. For as long as I can remember, I have loved food and creating in the kitchen is my happy place.
After working myself into a coma (running two businesses from the age of 24), not looking after my physical or mental health and burning the candle at both ends, coupled with some personal and family traumas, I suffered from extreme burn out and severe adrenal fatigue which led to the worst anxiety and panic attacks coupled with PCOS and a liver condition. A mouthful I know!
I went through a very dark tunnel and felt like I wasn’t going to be able to come out the other side. I was physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted and broken. This intense challenge of finding my way back to the light led me on an incredible journey of self-discovery, transformational growth, conscious living, healing with plants and most importantly learning to prioritize my own health and wellness. I have met the most beautiful souls along the way and I’m filled with immense gratitude for where I am now and the path that lies ahead of me.
My food philosophy is simple, food should be delicious, nutritious and nourishing while helping to fuel and heal your body, mind and spirit. I love recreating my favourite recipes that heal instead of hurt, all my recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. With that said, I am terrible at writing recipes down because I am a serial chucker – a little bit of this, a little bit of that. I cook intuitively, so most of the time I don’t even know what I’m making until the end when it’s done. I think I inherited it from my mom who is also a creative cook. We went to friends when I was a kid and had the best ice cream, we asked them for the recipe and they laughed because it was my mom’s recipe and she didn’t even recognize her own recipe, haha! I am the same – we create delicious dishes but asking us to write them down is another story. So this is my attempt at trying to inspire others to cook creatively too and don’t be scared to chuck a little.
I can’t wait to share this journey with you and to see your beautiful creations of my plant-based, whole food recipes!
Let’s get cooking!
Some quirky facts about me:
I’m really hilarious but in a kind of weird and funny way, I laugh at my own jokes and most of the time others laugh with me (insert awkward pause)
I can’t sleep with my socks on (I know I need therapy but after all these years they still can’t seem to diagnose me correctly LOL)
If I had to choose my dream job, it would be people watching at vegan cafes around the world
I love cooking, connecting and munching the most in life.
I’m a country pumpkin who grew up in the middle of nowhere and I’m still here, cooking up a storm in my tiny country kitchen.
I’m intellectual (kind of) but have zero common sense, it’s really a disease with no known cure ;)
I’m very loving, generous and kind but it sometimes gets me into trouble as a people pleaser at heart. Always prioritizing others instead of myself so I’ve been relearning all about the B words (not bitch, but Boundaries and Balance).
