Who am I?
Hey 👋🏽 I’m Jayne, a kiwi gal with a love for nourishing, plant based food 👩🏽🌾 #GalsGottaEat & the creator, founder, boss whatever you wanna call it behind Nourished Pantry. I am also writing this blog post, designing the website and everything in-between cos #ControlFreak.
Where I started?
Back track ← 6+ years ago I was terribly unwell; moving a lot, studying and living the student dream (is it really the dream though 🤷🏽♀️ #Fresher5MoreLikeFresher15). Eventually, my unsustainable lifestyle (alcohol, maccas, coffee & the peanut butter cookies my mama baked me) caught me out BIG TIME. I found myself bed ridden, exhausted and my sick day to catch up on sleep turned into a sick month. I felt like I was trapped in a 70 year old body at 19. My adrenals had shut down and the rest of me needed a whole lot of TLC and plenty of nourishment, so that’s what I set out to do. With the help of some wonderful people to guide me in changing my lifestyle naturally and rebuilding my health, I turned my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome around.
My love for food turned from sugary treats & processed snacks to plant based, nutrient dense meals, sweets and snacks. Everything I consumed was fuel and medicine for my body. I always think of cars (my parents own a motor vehicle dealership #Ironic) "you wouldn't fuel a petrol with diesel so why fuel your body with bad shit?"
With that said, I refuse to pretend it was walk in the park and it certainly isn’t still. I have bad days, that’s life. A Nourished lifestyle requires time, effort and passion with a heck of a lot of failures (like the dairy free Brie I trialled last month 🤦🏽♀️ it grew the wrong kinda mould). For me, this isn't a diet or fad, it’s a way of life.
How Nourished Pantry was brought to life...
The idea of kits came from sharing my snacks, sweet treats & cakes with friends and family. They were often fascinated that I had made a cake from nuts, seeds and coconut or chocolate mouse with avocado, even more so that it was naturally gluten free & refined sugar free. I wanted them to be able to make the food at home too, not just hand over a recipe over they’d probably forget about.
What are the kits?
Buying specific ingredients, measuring and having the correct equipment can be timely and extremely costly if your not 100% sure the finished product won’t taste like cardboard or be a total #PinterestFail.
Nourished Pantry baking kits take all that hard work out. No wasted products, no cardboard tasting baking and no #PinterestFails- just delicious, nutritious and wholesome baking!
We use premium ingredients sourced locally or imported and try to have as many organic or fair trade ingredients when possible. Everything is gluten & wheat free, soy free + plant based (no egg, dairy or animal products). There’s no hidden fillers, preservatives or additives. Just a straight up delicious product!
