About Me

You know what excites me? Inspiring others to live a healthy, vibrant life free from disease.

My mum and my younger brother died from cancer many years ago. My dad recovered from colon cancer and I was lucky to escape the beginning of Melanoma.

For years I felt average and thought this was normal until I read a book my dad gave me titled “Take Control Of Your Health & Escape The Sickness Industry” by Elaine Hollingsworth.

So, one day I rid my pantry of everything that posed as food and replaced it with clean, fresh food including lots of leafy greens. You know, REAL FOOD.

My “AHA” moment?
When my body responded positively to my new wholefood lifestyle. I felt more vibrant and younger than I had in my twenties and thirties. All day energy, no more mid-afternoon slumps, no PMS symptoms; and ability to keep sickness at bay. I can’t return to my old habits because I feel too good.

What I know for certain is this: What we put into our bodies has a profound effect on our health. We’re all surrounded by a living pharmacy that plays an important role in our bodies by preventing and healing disease. We need to focus more on strengthening our immune systems with the right foods rather than popping pills.

I created The Pantry Of Eden to promote healthy eating the way it used to be: – before man made chemicals and processed food took over and disease and ill health became commonplace.

All my recipes are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I use real food ingredients that are rich in nutrients and make you feel good (ie younger).  I also support humane farming practices by only using meat, poultry and eggs that are grass fed, organic or free range.


Thanks for stopping by.

With love & gratitude,

  • Hi Tash,

    We’re working on some blogger round-ups of recipes we love for Thanksgiving and would like to link to your Roast Lamb with Pumpkin Puree (and possibly others — I’m putting these stories together now and your blog is pretty inspiring) and your photo for this. Your site and photo would be credited and a link provided to send our readers to your site for the recipe (we won’t print the recipe on our site). Let me know asap if you are okay with this! (Sorry — on crazy deadline!)

    Thanks so much,
    Amy Zavatto
