WHO ARE WE?
A question that keeps us up at night…
NOT PLANT BASED was founded by Laura Dennison and is co-authored by Eve Simmons, both of whom have suffered with eating disorders. We are journalists by trade, food-fanatics by default and fitness-doers by force.
We set up this website to inspire those, like us, who have wasted too much time harbouring an unhealthy relationship with their bodies, their fitness and their food and to try to help them to love all those things again; or possibly for the first time in their lives.
IS THIS WEBSITE JUST FOR PEOPLE WITH EATING DISORDERS?
Absolutely not. If you feel like you are struggling in any way with food, fitness or your health – hi!
HOW OFTEN DO YOU POST ON NOT PLANT BASED?
We post every Monday and Thursday. Monday posts tend to be longer written pieces focusing on science, interviews and information from experts. We call Thursdays ‘Foodie Thursdays’ because on this day of the week we post our own personal recipes and food stories.
WHO TAKES YOUR PHOTOS?
We have a few arty friends who take some of our photos and sometimes we’ll use a tripod or our own two hands. Occasionally Laura will ask her mother, but those shots will be easily identifiable as her finger will more than likely be covering the lens.
WHO ILLUSTRATED YOUR HEADER IMAGE?
Laura’s beautiful friend Claire Esnault.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHO TO COLLABORATE WITH?
We ask people who inspire us, or who have been recommended to us, if we can squeeze from them everything they know about health, food and fitness.
If there’s someone who inspires you too, or who you think we should talk to, drop us a line (via social or e-mail) and we will put on our finest cameo gear and hunt them down.
CHOCOLATE OR CHEESE?
Omg, stop it.
