Hi there and thanks for visiting Amanda's Wholesome Kitchen. I'm Amanda and, amongst other things, I am a busy and grateful mum of 3 gorgeous girls under the age of 7.

I created this website with two things in mind.

I'm a big believer in real food and I love creating delicious food using ingredients that are as close to nature as possible. 

If you want to be healthy and feel healthy you have to learn how to cook.

We have such a short period of time to influence and shape the kind of eaters and attitude to food that our children have. 

I believe the early years are the most important time in shaping their food preferences and health for life.

I think it's a privilege to be able to choose what we eat so I choose to buy and eat real food that makes me feel great and gives me energy to live life to the fullest.  stick to the Michael Pollan mantra: "Eat real food, mostly plants. Not too much. "

I started my instagram account as a way to share my growing passion for cooking and creating with wholefoods and to spread the word about the importance of nourishing yourself and you families with real food. And to show how tasty and full of colour healthy food can be! 

The recipes and ideas you’ll find here revolve around my love for plant-based foods, and I hope that through the simple and delicious dishes I create, you too will discover a whole new world of flavour and nourishment through vegetarian food.

Im passionate about sharing the love for cooking with colourful, real food with all of you. I love my food to be packed full of flavour, I love using herbs and spices to ______ so a pre-requisite for all my recipes is that the end result has to be deliciousness so you won't find any sad salads here. 

I don't believe that one size fits all when it comes to nutrition. I do however believe that you can never have enough veggies in your life! All of my recipes are wheat free and refined sugar free. Many are also gluten and dairy free. 

I’m here to share what I what I love to cook and eat… and in doing so, hopefully provide a little inspiration to some of you. I want you to think about how you shop and what goes in your shopping trolley.


Would you like to treat the guests of yourn next small function to beautiful and nourishing vegetarian food? I can provide you a healthy and delcious menu to nourish and treat your guests. For specific requirements and individually tailored packages please contact me via the contact page.

I hope you enjoy!
