By day Ellie Steele is a Marketing Manager for the beautiful Georgian House Hotel in London’s Pimlico. By night she dons her cape and is Food & Lifestyle Blogger; “Just for fun”, she says. Ellie has always had a strong emotional connection with food. Ellie was influenced by her environment growing up; “I was raised on home grown organic ingredients and my mother was always hosting and cooking for friends”. In a world where we are bombarded by health information, fake images and fad diets, Ellie brings a breath of fresh air, common sense and responsibility via her Instagram Blog; “ellies_eats16” ; “My want is to find the correct balance between the enjoyment of food and understanding what I am putting into my body and the impact of that”. Ellie talks openly and honestly about the time it took to adjust to life in London and then the early realisation that despite having a great time, the almost mandatory after work partying and socialising wasn’t actually making her happy. Preparing and sharing healthy food choices became part of the small things each day that improved her mental and emotional wellbeing as well as her physical wellbeing. She expands on the concept of mindful eating and is full of praise for her employer; she learnt about mindful eating via the ‘Wellness Wednesdays’ that are an important part of her company’s culture. Whether she knows it or not, Ellie is a great role model for young women who love food and want to enjoy it, whilst making healthy choices and understanding why they eat.
