Eat Like a Girl turns 11 today! ELEVEN. Eleven years since I finally sat down at my desk in my small flat with the long hallway and desk, and tiny kitchen with a hatch and bright yellow worktop (it was a dream of a 70s design, complete with carpeted loo and avocado toilet seat).
I had wanted to write for years but had only written about science up to that point. Most of you will know that my background is in Physiology and then Technology. I was so comfortable writing about hormones, body clocks (especially them, I still find them fascinating) and the bodies adaptations to extreme environments. But to write about other things in an area where I was still learning? I was afraid but I really wanted to.
That desire was so strong and it had been growing over the years. It grew to a point where I could no longer ignore it or pretend that it was not what I wanted to do. It is still a fierce force, and I know that I haven’t been blogging too much on here that much lately, so that might be hard to see. The blog has moved from the centre of what I do to a part of it. I plan to write here more though and I have lots of recipes and travel stories to share.
