The message behind Anastasia's Pantry was inspired by my own struggles. I was overweight my whole life. I lost the motivation to exercise and make the much needed lifestyle change. Today I weigh 25 kilograms less, crave exercise and know how to live a balanced lifestyle.
However, I came to a disturbing realisation that I was being fooled by marketing labels such as 'low fat' or 'low sugar' which simply meant there was something else in there instead.
I prioritised using honest ingredients with no hidden nasties when personally developing the granola and protein ball recipes.
