Hi and welcome!
I’m Justine – the cook, writer and photographer behind this blog.
Slice of Kitchen Life was born in late summer 2014 as a space for me to share my journey towards better health, happiness and above all balance in my life. From the foods we choose to eat to the amount of sleep we get, I believe that everything in life is part of a balancing act.
Although I don’t follow any specific dietary restrictions, I am trying to focus on eating healthily while still allowing for the odd indulgence…
I’ve always had a weakness for sweet things, my grandmother used to say she preferred the dessert to the main course and I’m the same. For me, I’ve learned that classing a particular food as ‘forbidden’ is a sure-fire way to create a craving! Instead, I’m focusing on keeping my sugar intake under control without compromising on taste.
I’m not saying this is the best way / only way for everyone, just my own personal journey. I don’t believe that there is one ‘diet’ to suit all, instead I believe it’s up to each individual to figure out what works best for their body, after all nobody knows you better than yourself.
Please note that if you have a fairly sweet tooth you might feel you need to increase the amount of sugar in my recipes to taste, but I do test all of them to make sure they work as stated.
Random things about me:
I love the great outdoors – trees, lakes, mountains, rivers, I love ‘em all. So naturally my boyfriend Andy and I currently live in London – not a place particularly well known for its wide open spaces and snowy mountains … anyway, moving on…
I discovered a love for simplicity several years ago. From reducing my possessions, to being intentional in each purchase I make, I try to live mindfully. I’m certainly not a true minimalist, I still have far too much ‘stuff,’ but living this way makes me a happier, more content person.
And finally …
For my own sanity I’m trying not to fall into the trap of comparing my blog to others, but I know there are thousands of amazing ones out there. Thank you for choosing to drop into mine, it means a lot to me.
