Having grown up in Southern Spain with a restauranteur father who lived and breathed food, I was accustomed to meals prepared with only the freshest and tastiest ingredients.
Having always battled with food intolerances, it was only in London in 2010 that I felt my quality of life was being severely affected by constant mood swings, severe gastrointestinal pain and low energy levels.
After paying close attention to the impact different foods had on me and medically advised to try a low FODMAP diet*, I came to understand exactly how much food can impact one’s mindset. By eliminating certain foods, I learnt that I could only tolerate ingredients such as honey, dates, apples and agave nectar in the smallest of quantities. By removing these foods I felt energised, happier and no longer suffered severe stomach pains.
Inspired by my father’s cooking and being an avid foodie myself (live to eat rather than eat to live…) I decided to take matters into my own hands and come up with recipes that not only agreed with my digestive system but also tasted out of this world for all to enjoy.
My focus has always been on using simple, natural, healthier and organic ingredients that people know and understand.
Through this passion and many hours in the kitchen, GRAIN & BOWL was born.
I truly hope you enjoy my products as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
