Small, Local and Ravingly Tasty
We happily cook up and deliver homemade, hassle free, plant packed meals to fuel every bit of your day.We are two mums on a friendly mission to help more people Eat More Plants in the most flavourful way.
It’s that simple. Our mini yet mighty business is home based in Guiseley and we are here for local people, families and businesses taking the popular and hugely beneficial shift towards plant based living.
We are true believers in the oodles of health, nutrition, medical and environmental experts, who all promote upping your plant based food as the way forward. Our creative and busy little business is headed up by Sally, who is our homegrown culinary queen in the kitchen and Jo who handles all things outside the kitchen.
My love of animals and the environment started young, choosing to be vegetarian age 7 (Mum thought it was ‘a phase!’). As a wonderful home cook, it was Mum who nurtured my passion in the kitchen and it has never stopped.
I trained and worked as a professional chef for many years before deciding to hang up my apron ready for the birth of my eldest son in 2011, looking for a more family friendly career. Taking a change of direction, I retrained as an outdoor personal trainer. This provided a real insight into what busy people, in particular families want and need. I truly enjoyed inspiring others to adopt new healthy habits for fitness and food. It’s exciting that my skills as a chef and PT have been mixed together to proudly create Eat More Plants.
For me, nothing beats being outdoors in nature. A perfect day starts with a sunrise trail run, jumping on my bike, foraging in the countryside with my other half and two adventurous boys, then home to whip up a delicious family meal. My family are always on the move and I make sure they have all the plant power they need to keep doing what they love.
Look forward to feeding you loads and loads more plants!
Make Peas not War!
I am Jo or Little Jo as my friends call me, small in stature but mighty on girl power. Before Eat More Plants life, I spent 13 years travelling around the world as an Event Manager. I am in my element when planning, organising and geekily learning new things. Naturally competitive and I strive for perfection, which has its pros and cons, so I’m forever trying to manage and balance my crazy head. Whilst obsessing with detail, I also love the creative side of things and thoroughly enjoy working on the design and marketing side of our beautiful brand.
I am massively into health and fitness. High energy gym classes are a great start to my day and also love the benefits of yoga and meditation. In my younger years I was passionate about dance, unfortunately my dancing days are long gone but have passed on my genes to my two dance mad girls, who love it even more than me.
I love the food that we produce. Healthy, ridiculously tasty and planet friendly.
Once you try our food I am sure you will be hooked too.
