I got into Matcha last year after discovering Matcha Latte (made with almond or coconut milk). It made a refreshing change from peppermint tea when I wanted a warm drink that felt more indulgent than a herbal tea. Having given up caffeine 4 years ago I don’t miss the taste or the ritual of it (or the headaches I used to suffer) but I do sometimes miss the warmth of a creamy drink.

I just love a plant based smoothie for breakfast or lunch. They fill me up, satisfy my hunger for hours and are packed with plant based protein, vitamins, minerals and probiotics.

I love travelling, it’s one of the reasons working for myself is so great. I really do get to plan my diary and take off when and where I like. When Miss H first started at a private school I was so shocked by the length of the school holidays and wondered how anyone with a ‘proper job’ would ever cope. For me working from home and being able to be there for her into her teens has been so powerful an experience and I still get to travel whenever I like.

I use a combination of their flavoured protein ...
