My guest today has an amazing story of resilience and truly embodies what it means to live a life of purpose and passion. James Wythe was an elite golfer competing nationally in the UK and had aspirations to turn professional. However, at the age of 21, he was struck down with myalgic encephalomyelitis which left him bedridden for two straight years, barely able to move and speak in the first few months. It took another 4 years of healing and recovery, but even though housebound at this time, he taught himself to cook and changed to a non-gluten, non-dairy diet. It was this diet that was a huge part of his healing journey. As James learned more about cooking, he developed a true passion for it and started up his very popular blog Healthy Living James which has a following on Instagram of more than 90000 people. His work has made a big impact on a lot of people around the world and it was a genuine pleasure to have him on my show.
James is a qualified Health Coach and food blogger. He specialises in creating quick and healthy gluten, wheat, dairy, egg and refined sugar free recipes. After suffering with a long term illness his food has been one of his ways of recovery. His aim is to inspire and motivate people to cook more to improve their overall lifestyle.
