about us

And welcome to My Health Zest, which is supposed to make you think about YOUR health zest. And hopefully, inspire you to take steps towards better nutritional health.

I’m Sarah. I am obsessed with finding and developing recipes that contribute to the overall targets of hitting nutritional targets every day.

It is actually surprising until you take notice, how many of us aren’t getting enough iron, iodine, calcium, vitamin D and many others.

This site aims to educate us all about why these nutrients are important to your health and well-being and offer recipe ideas that will help you to get more of these nutrients into your diet.

As you may have noticed, I have a particular interest in brain health. As someone who has suffered from mental illness for most of my adult life, I know how important it is to take care of our brains!

Nutrition is not the be-all and end-all where brain health is concerned, but it can support good brain health and good heart health, which is probably just as important.

I am a flexitarian, but I have a particular soft spot for vegan foods. I love to search and develop delicious vegan recipes.

It is a fun challenge, to make recipes that taste so good that we won’t miss meat or dairy any way!

Please feel welcome to get in touch with any questions, no matter how small or large they may be. My goal is to build knowledge through this blog and to pass it on to you!

All the best for a long and happy life,
