You would not think it if you were to judge by the size of me but I am simply obsessed with food. I am a vegetarian/pescatarian whatever you would like to label me as I do not eat meat only fish. A lot of people ask me why I do not eat meat and its just something that has never been attractive to me. I hope you are not munching on a whopping great chunk of steak whilst reading this but I feel like I am eating flesh when I eat meat. The texture is chewy and I just don’t enjoy eating it, actually meat to me is quite boring but hey thats my opinion. I gave up meat when I was 8 years old, I knew I didn’t like it and it was pointless eating something I was simply not enjoying. I tried meat again around the age of 15 and again last year, it was basically to confirm my dislike of meat, which was still there so I know wasn’t a fad. Being a vegetarian is not necessarily bad thing, it opens your eyes to new food, new recipes and for me its fun trying new things.
I LOVE sushi whether its Nobu, Aqua, Itsu, Yo Sushi or Boots meal deal I will never tire of eating it.

I try to eat healthily but I feel guilty being in these amazing restaurants and choosing a salad… So I think ‘I might not come here again so I need to eat the best dish on the menu… oh and a desert… I will just have to have a super workout tomorrow’ :S
I believe you can eat everything you wish within moderation.
My local hang out is (Green Park) Mayfair so to list a few of my favourite places around this area to eat out would be Nobu, Novikov, Browns, Ritz, Carlton Club, Automat etc. One of the best restaurants on Dover St. has simply got to be Alloro. It is divine! Every single time I have been to this restaurant the food is exquisite and the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. The last time I was there I had the vegetable soup for starters (fresh veg in a clear soup) Tuna Steak Chips and Salad for mains and mango sorbet for desert YUM!
Alloro, 19-20 Dover Street
I do not eat out in expensive restaurants all the time… If I did I would be broke but lucky for me I get taken out often by work/clients/friends which I am so grateful for! If I had to choose between paying for several slap up meals or a Chanel bag, as much as I would class food as a hobby, Fashion would win hands down.
OH and I am a MAJOR sugar addict but chocolate ,sweets, biscuits and all those other mouth watering ‘bad’ things are another chapter….
