Ella Woodward, author of Deliciously Ella , wants you to feel good about healthy food, without being 'smug'! The idea of Deliciously Ella developed last year after Ella was diagnosed with a relatively unknown autoimmune disease, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTs). At that point she faced some pretty interesting challenges. Her entire nervous system had shut down, to the point that she was unable to walk between her bedroom and the kitchen without blacking out. She decided to try a natural approach to healing. To learn to love and nurture her body through food, which has been the most amazing success. The more she understood the more she wanted to share, to show how unbelievably creative, exciting and delicious nutritious food could be. Through her blog she inspires people to love healthy eating, to seeing it as a wonderful way of life, not as an imposition. All of her recipes are gluten, dairy, sugar & meat free. They use the purest, most natural foods to create the most delicious meals.
