Hi, I’m Wendy, food blogger at Cinnamon and Kale. I do all of the recipe development, photography and writing on the blog. I’m based in a village in the south of England.
I’m a self taught cook, and have over 30 years experience in cooking healthy food and recipe development. I've also worked with the food industry for many years.
I started this Cinnamon and Kale food blog at the end of 2019. I’ve always loved creating healthy recipes, and this blog allows me to share that passion with as many people as possible.
Passionate about healthy eating
Cinnamon and Kale is about healthier cooking that makes you feel great. It's full of delicious recipes, tips and ideas to make it easier to have a healthy diet.
Home cooking is a great way to improve your diet and eat healthier food. For me, healthy cooking is simply about using more good-for-you ingredients and less of the not so good.
Cinnamon and Kale recipes
Recipes all use real, unprocessed ingredients. In particular, Cinnamon and Kale recipes focus on:
- Delicious ways to include more veggies in your diet
- Using healthy wholegrains which add fibre to help to balance blood sugar levels and improve digestion
- Using less sugar and other sweeteners
There are many everyday family meals, all with a healthy twist. Some recipes include meat, some fish, and there are lots of vegetarian dishes. There's also lots of healthy baking recipes and all the recipes are gluten free or provide gluten free options.
This blog will help you to have a healthier diet. Recipes are simple and straightforward, and use ingredients that are easily available and affordable.
If you are looking for easy ways to make healthier meals, then you've come to the right place.

Wendy's favourite healthy recipes
I've got to be honest, it's hard to choose just a few! It depends on the weather, my mood and what's in the fridge. But these are a few that I make very regularly.
