About Jess

 I’m 20 years old (Australian) and used to be an elite swimmer. Now I’m getting my fitness back/health back and the hardest thing has been making sure I’m “full” and don’t snack too much on junk food. This is a huge issue while simultaneously studying at university since there aren’t many healthy options.

In saying that, most of the recipes and food I eat are extremely healthy and FILLING. The worst thing you can do is switch to a healthier lifestyle and start eating foods that leave you “empty” inside, dissatisfied or even when ingredients for food preparation are expensive and sometimes hard to find (chia seeds,acai etc.). I think that’s when people get discouraged because food is such a huge part of our daily lives!
