Sprinkle of Green is a go-to hub for anyone who wants to eat truly delicious, no-fuss, wholesome food –
because healthy food doesn’t have to be boring!
It’s a community for those interested in eating for both nourishment and pleasure, it’s a stress-free approach to health for those who want to have the vitality and confidence to live life to the fullest and embrace all it has to offer. Here at SoG I truly believe healthy eating shouldn’t be hard and stressful, it should be light and fun! Other beliefs?
What I’m saying is, if you’re looking to incorporate healthy foods into your diet, are after amazing recipes, or even if you’re already a health rockstar, I’m here for you.
With recipes that have been featured on Buzzfeed, The Greatist, The Feed Feed, and One Green Planet, Sprinkle of Green continues to grow and I’d love for you to be a part of it! If you’re all like YES! This website sounds like it’s my kind of place, then there is nothing I would love more than for us to become BFFs. Sound good? Then you can sign up to my newsletter here to get some scrumptious recipes delivered straight to your inbox. You can also follow me on Instagram, also known as my addiction (#workingonit). Just get in touch, ok?!
I’m Teffy, the creator of Sprinkle Of Green.
As of 2018 I’m a qualified Nutritionist, completing my 3-year diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition, with 200+ hours of clinical experience. Working with my clients they are constantly amazed that yes, food can taste great AND be good for you!
I started this blog to fulfil my dream of creating a community that empowered people to take control of their wellbeing by cooking delicious and wholesome foods. I’m a home cook, and everything I’ve learned has been through self development, intensive reading, and tons and tons of practice. If I can do it, so can you!
In 2012 I quit my day job, travelled the world, and got more in tune than ever with my health and my eating habits. I wasn’t always an avocado lover, which is why I know that anyone can make changes, big or small, to improve their life through food.
If you knew me a few years ago, you would never have guessed that I would someday come to write a recipe and wellness blog. I was a big drinker, party-smoker, and a huge sugar-monster, and my idea of exercise was, well, non-existent. I once even ate a box of chocolates while on the treadmill.
I would binge in the late hours. As soon as people went to sleep, out came the copious amounts of foods (think biscuits, ice cream, chocolates, crisps), quickly followed by guilt, and always feeling horribly full and bloated afterwards. Not fun.
This might be a little tmi, but I also had horrible bloating and digestion. I’d just always assumed that my digestion was just ‘lazy’. I was always so envious of people who were regular, I had no idea that it was my body telling me it couldn’t cope with what I was feeding it, and that it needed more of the good stuff!
One of amazing benefits that I hadn’t even made a connection until recently was how my excessive sweating has gone! Now, if you’ve suffered from hyperhidrosis you know how horrible it can be. I had to swear off coloured tops for many years and even tried things like taping tissues and pads to my underarms. It wasn’t pretty.
The craziest, and worst, part is, I was so sure I had a normal and healthy diet. I ate boxed cereal and skim milk for breakfast and a packaged granola bar as a snack. The wrapper said it was healthy, so how could it not be?
It’s still a journey, and I’m constantly learning and growing. No, I don’t eat healthy all the time, but I do my best to make it my everyday norm and not stress when I do have foods that aren’t considered “healthy”. Through working on a wholesome life I have discovered more about myself and my true needs, and I am crazy about helping others get there as well – which is why I went back to school and studied Nutritional Therapy. It’s been fascinating and exhilarating and emotional, but I’ve never felt better, and so I hope that SoG awakens something BIG in you.
