It’s time for the next instalment of the Inspired By Nature series. I am so happy to have this wonderful mama on the blog today. She is a cook inspiring others to nourish themselves and their loved ones through real, plant-based nurturing foods and activities. The food she makes and bakes is beautiful to look at, and instantly makes my mouth water. She manages to get so much colour into her food, and her Instagram feed has me drooling over my phone. I would sure like an invite to dinner.
Please welcome Jo Balfe from Nurturing Kitchen…
I am really excited to introduce you to my next guest in the ‘Inspired By Nature’ series. This lady is a traditional apothecary, a distiller, plantswoman and a therapist. She has had a really fascinating life and I have loved hearing more about why she does what she does. Having just opened a ‘bricks and mortar’ shop and therapy room in Lewes, East Sussex, I wanted to find out what led her to this point in her life.
I hope you enjoy reading her story. She has some wonderful insights into how nature can support and provide, in terms of self care. If you would like to live more in tune with the rhythm of the seasons but aren’t sure where to begin, then read on, she offers some brilliant advice.
Please welcome Amanda from A.S Apothecary….
Happy nearly weekend. For the second part of the new ‘Inspired By Nature‘ series, (catch up with part one here), Kaity from Fare Isle is back sharing a wonderful recipe for vegan muffins – Pecan Streusel Spiced Sweet Potato Muffins.
Something to have a go at making this weekend. Enjoy.

I’m really excited to introduce you to a new series that I am starting on the blog today. Nature has always been a big inspiration to me, so I wanted to look at this in more depth, and talk to some folk that hold nature at the centre of their way of life. I’m thrilled to have some great people lined up that are so inspired by nature, that it shapes their work life, and the way they choose to live with their families.
I’m particularly interested in whether nature helps us slow down and supports a slow living lifestyle. I wanted to get some other peoples thoughts on whether working with nature helps them live in a more mindful and wholehearted way.
First up we have a lady who lives in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, the island of Nantucket. She is surrounded by nature at its best, and the landscape around her informs what she does. She grows and wild-harvest’s many of the ingredients for her produce, and focuses on farm to table pantry items, wellness products, and also offers a Chef Service. I am delighted to introduce you to Kaity from Fare Isle.
