What's Nourishing You?: Hannah of Health Yeah


I am beyond thrilled to share this exciting series on Nourish The Roots. It's called "What's Nourishing You?" and it is where I interview some of my favorite bloggers from around the world about food, what it means to them, and what they can't live without in their kitchen. It is truly an honor to feature these women here and I hope you enjoy their thoughts as much as I do.
Today, I'm talking with the lovely and talented Hannah, writer and food photographer of her fabulous blog called Health Yeah. She lives in New Zealand (so awesome, right?!) and I love how she ditches diet labels and identifies herself as a whole-foods lover. She passionately believes in embracing natural, unadultered plant-based foods. She has some incredible recipes on her site, including some amazingly decadent desserts that are totally natural, unrefined, and full of health-promoting ingredients. If her pictures don't convince you, I don't know what will! Check out her interview below (along with some of her mouth-watering food photographs) and be sure to head on over to her beautiful website, as well.
1. What is your food philosophy?
I believe in eating real, nourishing, living food! I've got heaps of thoughts on food - it's so much more than fuel. Next to composting I believe switching to a wholefoods plant based diet is the easiest and most powerful thing we can do as individuals to revolutionize our health and reduce our environmental impact. 
Choosing to eat well is also an act of self-respect and an effective anti-depressant: it nourishes our self esteem as well as our bodies. 
I also believe there is something magic about eating living food - the vibrant colours and flavours of fresh produce, harvested straight from the ground, connects us to nature and teaches us to respect and revere the earth's abundance in a way that processed, profit driven food cannot. 
Finally, you don't have to spend a fortune! Superfoods are nice to have, but fruits and veggies are more important.  
2. What are your non-negotiables when it comes to you diet?
Leafy greens = human jet fuel
Know where your food comes from. 
Make it taste good!

3. What are your 5 favorite ingredients in the kitchen?
Cacao
Leafy Greens
Herbs
Grapefruit and lemons
Summer fruits

4. If you could prepare a meal for anyone (dead or alive), who would it be and what would you make?
All the people at Auckland City Mission or all the patients at Auckland Hospital. I would love to put on a huge spread of tasty, healthy, fresh food with lots of leftovers!

  
Thank you so much, Hannah, for sharing your insight on food with Nourish The Roots. Keep up your incredible work! And readers, be sure to check out Health Yeah for recipes for what you see pictured. The raw vegan Blackberry Coconut Cheesecake, the Quinoa and Buckwheat Granola, and the raw vegan Vanilla Chocolate Mousse Cake are just some of the incredible recipes on Hannah's site!
