Hi, welcome to Cardamom Journal. I’m Issie.

I'm happiest when I'm in the kitchen - pyjamas on, hair in a bun, make up off and trying out a new recipe. Or reading a cookbook from one of my favourite authors like Anna Jones, Nigel Slater or Meera Sodha.

I started this blog a few years ago to take my passion for food and health a little further, by writing about it and sharing ideas.

In October 2017 I left my job as Digital Producer for delicious. magazine and Healthy Food Guide to travel around India and Sri Lanka for five months with my boyfriend. Before we left I was in a panic, I wasn’t even sure if I would like travelling! I decided to take a journal and write three happy moments at the end of every day, to keep me feeling present and positive even when things had got a little scary.

Mostly the happy moments were small things – the violet-grey colour of waves before sunset, the best naan I’ve ever eaten or the smell of flowers being sold outside a temple – but sometimes it was the big stuff like seeing a blue whale or spending a night in the desert. It’s the entries from my happy journal which will inspire my blog.

I'll be posting recipes, tips on travelling, my thoughts on mindfulness, fitness and health. 

Have a read, I hope you enjoy it x
