Welcome to my blog Healthy Living James. I am a fully qualified Health Coach who has a passion for healthy living mainly focusing on quick, healthy and easy recipes that will transform the way you think about food.

I specialise in creating recipes that are completely free from gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and refined sugar. Most of the recipes I create are plant-based/vegan but almost all can be adapted to add fish or meat if you wish.

I suddenly fell seriously ill 8 years ago which left me bed bound for 2 years and house bound for the next 4 years. I decided to open my blog to share my recovery journey and passion for healthy living. I would love for you to read my full story as it might just help you or someone you know!
