Bettina started her business, Bettina’s Kitchen, to share her knowledge on plant foods, seasonality, incorporating local produce into our diets, and to spread the word on how to eat more sustainably, and cook in a way that makes us feel good while still being damn delicious.
This all came about as a result of being diagnosed with PCOS and endometriosis years ago and being told that she wouldn’t be able to have children. After changing her diet and lifestyle, Bettina fell pregnant 6 months later, and she’s been on a mission ever since to share the beauty and power of plant-based foods, to get more people cooking wholesome dishes from scratch, and to care about where our food comes from.
Bettina’s food and recipes are always so bright and flavoursome (take a look at her uber-popular Instagram account if ever you’re in need of inspiration). Her 3rd book, Celebrate, is out later this summer and as the name suggests, it’s all about the crowd-pleaser dishes perfect for feasts and parties and gatherings - and don’t we know we need a few of those in our lives!
I met up with Bettina to chat about her career in food, her new book, and how food plays such a critical role, especially for women, in balancing our hormones and helping us thrive.
