Welcome to Bonne Santé !
For those of you who don’t already know me, here’s a little intimate information about the girl behind the blog.
I am a veggie Ninja.
My name is Katey, and i’m a 22 year old student of Naturopathy on a mission to convince the world that good health and good fun are not mutually exclusive!
I enjoy cracking open a chilled young coconut on a hot Sydney day, unexpected leaps into the ocean fully clothed, ye old books, strange films, fabulous friends and mediocre comedy (in which I frequently partake!).
Over the last 2 years I’ve turned my life inside out; sprouting into a fully-fledged vegan from questionable nutritional beginnings, quitting my film/french degree to pursue alternative health and testing the limits of where our goals and imaginations can take us (most commonly, the fridge!).
I hope to one day morph into a spiritually content, yogi-like individual (ability to touch toes pending), so if you’d like to join me on my quest for better health and unbridled happiness, I’d be thrilled to have you along for the ride!
Psssst…You can also find me over at High on Health, spreading the kooky naturopathic love!

Bonne Santé = ‘Good Health’ in French.
I started this blog because I’m passionate about eating well and eating consciously and ethically. As a student it’s often an easy option to buy takeaway or resort to the cliché of subsisting on 2-minute noodles and instant coffee. But i’ve found since i’ve put more into my health and food choices, the changes to how i feel and even to my appearance are amazing! I’m happier than ever.
The recipes on this blog are all vegetarian, with some experimental forays into veganism and raw food – but I don’t judge anyone for their food choices and realise that some things work for some people, but not for others. I DO think we can all benefit from thinking consciously about what we’re putting into/onto/around our bodies, because as a society I feel we’re very removed from not only our food sources, but also pretty much everything we (often mindlessly) consume.
Eating well, exercising and getting out into the world not only drastically reduces your risk of disease and chronic illness, but it will give you energy, improve your skin, calm your stomach, alleviate indigestion – all these things that many of us consider a normal part of living. It’s not hard to make small changes to your diet, and in the interest of living a long and happy life, why wouldn’t you?
