Thank you for visiting Live Cook Eat
My name is Jane and I am the owner of Live Cook Eat.
I am committed to reviving your health, vitality and lifestyle with simple and affordable tips, actions and recipes.
This blog is for people who feel they have lost their ‘shine’ and want it back again.
At Live Cook Eat you will find articles on the best foods to revive your health, recipes, lifestyle choices and how to deal with growing children.
I live in Brisbane with my kind, hair-challenged, and amiable partner Peter, our two daughters Molly and Lulu, our gay dog Diesel and
Bluey the Siamese Fighting fish. Bluey had an unfortunate accident… or we may have forgotten to feed him.
I was born in Auckland, New Zealand. Dad was in the Armed Forces so my childhood was spent shifting from one town to another between here and England.
As soon as I was able I left home and started work under the illusion that I was going to become part of my own real-life fairy tale. That illusion was soon shattered and so began my life in the real world.
After one failed marriage and many jobs I met Peter and moved to Australia.
I realise now that I didn’t know what real work was until our daughters were born and started walking and talking (two highly over-celebrated achievements). The work continues and gets more difficult as they get older.
I blog. My other loves are writing and photography so I use this site as an outlet for both.
I spend far too much time reading other blogs – it’s research!
I am a stay-at-home mum which is code for ‘dedicated taxi driver to my children’.
I love to cook, except on weekdays.
Cauliflower is my favourite veggie.
I could never become an alcoholic, I love wine way too much to give it up.
I practice Aikido. I sat and watched Molly and Lulu for a long time until I gained enough courage to take it up myself. Now here I am a brown belt. I am sure it is not a pretty site watching me cavort around the mat but I seriously don’t care because I love it so much.
Thank you for spending time getting to know me. I like you already.
Now you know more about me I would love it if we could keep in touch. Why not subscribe to my newsletter and receive a free e-book, ” A Step By Step Guide To Reviving Your Health And Rediscovering Your Shine.”
