    Ella's Vision

    Feel better while helping the planet.

    Ella's vision is to change the way we eat: more plants, for more people, more of the time. It’s about making simple changes – trying meat-free Monday, incorporating an extra portion of fruit or veg into each meal and cutting back on animal protein intake. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing, but if we move closer to a plant-based diet, we help support sustainable options for the future.

    Try one plant-based meal this week?

    “Adopting a plant-based diet is the single most impact action you can take as an individual to improve the health of the planet.”

    Interview with Ella Mills.

    Ella:

    Dinner, as it’s a time to sit down and catch up with my family. I love the power that food has to bring us together. My go-to’s are simple, but delicious meals. I love our one-pan veggie orzo with butter beans, lemon juice and fresh basil. I make our walnut and mushroom ragu a lot too, and our spicy peanut noodles with fried tofu and quick pickled chillies.

    It varies, but usually porridge or granola with coconut yoghurt and black coffee for breakfast with my children in the morning, before they go to nursery and I head to work. Lunch is usually leftovers in the office, we’re always testing new recipes so there’s a lot of food going around! Today we had a rainbow orzo salad, a blueberry loaf and a new creamy scrambled tofu with sourdough. Snacks tend to be our peanut oat bar or chocolate dipped almonds. Dinner varies, sometimes we go out to eat, other times we make a delicious dinner at home.

    1. Start slowly, it’s not all or nothing. Often when we make massive changes we set ourselves up for failure, it’s too much too soon and it becomes overwhelming. Think about changing the way you eat over months and years, not days and weeks. Could you try one plant-based meal this week?

    2. Make sure you enjoy it. For anything to be sustainable it has to be enjoyable. Ensure every meal is delicious and you’re cooking foods that you truly love, rather than forcing something on yourself.

    3. Think about flavour – lots of fried garlic, herbs and spices, soy sauce, miso, harissa – bold flavours are fantastic.

    Ella:

    Shopping at farmers markets can be brilliant for inspiration, the food always looks that bit more delicious and it’s all seasonal, so it’s easy to make seasonal choices. 

    Ella:

    I hate the concept of ‘guilty pleasure’, it’s an oxymoron. If something is genuinely pleasurable then it shouldn’t come with the negative association of guilt. Life is all about balance, you’ve just got to find the right balance to feel satisfied, energised, and healthy.

    Ella:

    I’m very conscious of what I buy. It’s not easy with children, as they often need new clothes, but I buy very little. I’m passionate about buying beautiful, timeless clothes that I’ll still be wearing a decade for now, versus fast fashion. I treat myself to a few new things a year, and most days I’m wearing items that I’ve had for at least the last five years.
