Learn how to eat more whole and plant-based foods with tips from special diet blogger Deliciously Ella, who is gluten free and dairy free
Trying to cut down on gluten or dairy, or ditch processed foods? Meet Ella Woodward, the woman behind popular blog Deliciously Ella, who changed her life after transforming the way she eats. ”I would describe the way I eat as wholefood and plant-based,” says Ella.
“It shows you what you can do with those foods in going back to natural, whole ingredients. Nothing in a packet.” Sounds like smart eating to us!
This nutritious way of eating has turned Deliciously Ella’s health around. Ella has been eating this way for almost three years after she was diagnosed with rare illness postural tachycardia syndrome, which caused chronic fatigue, constant headaches and heart palpitations among its symptoms.
She started her blog, Deliciously Ella, two years ago, she launched an app last year and her first recipe book came out in January and became the fastest-selling debut cookbook since records began. She has also studied nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. Her philosophy is based around foods that “you and your body will love”.

“I jumped right in at the deep end,” says Ella. “I gave up gluten, dairy, animal products, sugar and additives. I am so an all or nothing person. It was a dramatic change and I’m not sure I would advise anyone to do the same.”
Maybe going cold turkey isn’t for everyone, but incorporating some of Ella’s healthy eating principles will have you looking and feeling your best in no time. We caught up with Ella at the launch of London cold-pressed juice bar Raw Press and asked for her tips to eating better, one step at a time. Keep reading to learn how to eat like Deliciously Ella…
