How it all started…
Hi, we’re Paul and Joanna the proud new owners of FruitnVeggie.com. We’re hoping to continue to share with you the great ideas, tips and tricks that Eve has been sharing with you since the website launched back in 2013, with some additions, we’re sure you’ll love.
It would be great to hear from you, so please drop by and say hi in the comment box on any of our posts, blogging is a two-way street!
Here’s just a little bit about us both…
We live in Hampshire, England. Just 30 minutes from London. The town we live in is urban, but we are fortunate to be surrounded by lush rolling countryside and quaint little villages, not to forget lots of lovely country pubs. We live here with our beautiful 11 year-old Black Labrador Yogi; a true foodie (with great taste) in his own right. Perhaps he should have his own section on this website.
I was brought up in Hampshire, but have also lived in Surrey and London. Half English, half Scottish and I love great food. For me it is one of the greatest pleasures in life.
I am a pescatarian, so as a result I’m always trying to find exciting ways to eat delicious food without added meat.
Joanna loves Yogi( our lab), traveling, horse riding, Yoga, Zumba and binge-watching on Netflix Box-Sets!
I’ve been living in England for 15 years, but previously I lived in Paris, France and on the coast in Portugal, just 40 minutes from it’s capital Lisbon.
As a result I have been fortunate to have been surrounded by delicious fresh produce and fantastic restaurants. Food is a passion of mine (thanks to my parents). But, I’m not talking about fancy Cordon Bleu, for me the simpler the food the better it is and I think you can really eat that in the Mediterranean diet.
Fruit n veggie is my passion, but I also do freelance work at CTH on the side to help pay the bills.
Outside cooking and eating great food, I enjoy travelling, keeping fit (I practice martial arts and trekking, cycle etc), photography and playing the guitar.
Foods I like most: All types of cuisine, because food is all about cultures, people and their ancestors. I have to eat the following once a month (love all of them) Mediterranean dishes, Thai, Japanese, Indian and many African meals.
A bit more about me: I am 57% Portuguese (Iberian Peninsula), and proud to be sharing multiple DNA’s from Nord-Western Europe (French and Danish essentially) so, that will make me a modern Viking! ;)!
I discovered that food is fuel and has interlinks with life itself. Following that pattern, If we’re going to have a conversation, and/or raise awareness about the problem of climate change, we’ll have to talk about the things that matter to all of us. But, also find and apply changes and integrate viable solutions around us.
I watched the documentary Kiss the ground and must say I love the way people are reacting to help future generations and strongly recommend you to take the time to watch it.
About the website…
Fruitnveggie.com is a blog all about fruits and vegetables, expert tips and how to read food headlines. It is neither vegetarian nor vegan based (though many of the recipes will fit into these categories), but will appeal to anyone eating less meat and increasingly putting fruits and vegetables at the center of a meal.
My hope is that we will inspire you to eat good and sustainable food whilst trying new recipes and discover new items in the world of produce!
