I am Milena.
Welcome to The Orange Pantry.
I am a naturopath and a mum with a passion for healthy living & general well being through nutrition. I believe when you make better food choices the quality of your life improves; energy levels, moods, sleep & general happiness are heightened. Good food is the greatest gift we can give our bodies and our minds.
The Orange Pantry is a culmination of my professional and “mummy” experience along with my deep interest in matters of health. Specifically I focus on what we eat and how we can teach our children that healthy eating is delicious, not a compromise.
I don’t advocate one particular diet over another nor do I have extreme rules about food and eating. I do use fresh, wholesome ingredients in my cooking; what I like to think of as whole foods, as close to their natural state, foods that don’t require processing through a factory before they reach your kitchen. I use seasonal ingrediants, locally produced as much as possible. I love a farmers market and a trip to my local healthfood store is like buying new shoes!
The Orange Pantry recipes have been classified for easy sorting into special dietry requirements such as gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, vegetarian etc.
Why orange? It is the colour for creativity, fun, strength, vitality and transformation – all the qualities that are important in life.
Milena, lover of whole foods & founder of The Orange Pantry.
