My name is Katie, I live in Cambridge, England. In my professional life I work as the Acting Editorial Manager for PLoS  Medicine, the leading open access medical journal. In my personal life one of my biggests interests is FOOD!!!

I think we all have a stake in where our food comes from, how it’s made, processed, what we’re told about it, how it’s distributed across our planet and its security for our future. I’ve discovered how fun it is to grow your own food and experiment with yummy ways to eat unusual veg that can grow in the UK. I’m vegetarian but like to experiment with vegan recipes too.

I’m hoping this blog can help others find recipes and ideas for their plots and pots (both plant and cooking!) and will provide useful info for those who want to be more conscious about food sustainability and the impact what we eat has on our planet and our lifestyles.


There is enough food in the world to feed everyone adequately; the problem is distribution.  –WHO

Eating less meat, dairy and eggs reduces the environmental impact of animal farming and improves human health. –CIWF

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. -Mahatma Gandhi

Why don’t we eat more veg? They’re healthy, cost-effective and, above all, delicious. -Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
