Hi and welcome to The Notecook! I'm Sasha and I cook and photograph a tasty mixture of gluten and dairy-free recipes using feel good ingredients!
My ultimate goal is to provide you with delicious and balanced recipes, as well as easily digestible tips for a healthier future.
So… I guess all you need to do is enjoy and take note.
Coming from a family of incredible cooks, my interest in cooking has always come naturally to me, but it wasn't until my early teens that I started to take it more seriously.
In 2014, I was diagnosed with IBD - an autoimmune condition affecting my gut. Living with this condition meant I had to make drastic changes to my diet and lifestyle, so I took it upon myself to get more creative in the kitchen.
At the time of my diagnosis, my mum began studying nutrition and eventually went on to qualify as a Nutritionist & Functional Medicine Practitioner. With her help, I learnt how much of an impact food can have on our overall health and wellbeing. I started familiarising myself with new ingredients and their nutritional values. I cut out gluten and most dairy products and instead, started fuelling my body with foods that made me feel good, which eventually led to my remission.
I created this blog to share my creations with you, as well as my interest in health and nutrition. I want to show you that healthy food doesn't have to be boring (and neither does gluten-free food)!
I hope you enjoy my content and revisit for some more noteworthy recipes!
