Welcome to The Educated Foodie – a blog written by a Psychology teacher from London (UK), who loves food and loves to cook, and wants to learn as much as possible about everything related to food and eating.
I’ve always been the type of person who loves food and always looks forward to the next meal. I truly want every single thing that I eat to be amazing and I won’t bother with boring food especially since I resent the calorie wastage. I have always struggled with my weight and have found it very difficult to stay at a stable weight – while at the same time wanting to not get bored of the food allowed on the many many diets I’ve tried. Having been one of the ‘lost generation’ in the UK who never got any home economics at school, I mostly taught myself to cook, as well as being able to learn off some of the wonderful older women in my life like my mother and godmothers. This lack of education about health, food, budgeting etc has really annoyed me to the point where I feel I have wasted a large amount of time making mistakes.
