AN INTRODUCTION TO LET IT BE COSY
Let It Be Cosy started as a personal lifestyle blog in 2013 and as my interests shifted and life experiences shaped me, it evolved into what it is now; an online space dedicated to sharing plant-based recipes both cooked and raw (also free of gluten, refined sugars and flours) to inspire people who are new to this lifestyle.
Adopting a plant-based diet in summer of 2014 changed my life in many ways. But when I started, I felt lost and confused. I loved to eat and cook but felt restricted and un-movitated in the kitchen with my new diet. Slowly but surely I gained confidence and now prepare the most delicious, nutritious and healthy plant-based food, if I may say so myself. I want to pass the message on (through this blog and my Monthly Cosy Letters) and help those of you who have taken the step to make positive changes in your daily habits, to really enjoy your food and your journey to a healthier and happier version of yourself.
*See what the press has to say.
My name is Rocio Graves. I was born in Deia, a small village in the mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana in Mallorca (Spain) and was brought up in a community of artists and free spirits. As a child I spent most of my time barefoot climbing trees, in poetry readings or jam sessions with my family and friends.
I value and enjoy my time alone, I love to photograph and style food, to grow my own vegetables, go to farmers markets and spend time in the kitchen playing with food. I am passionate about holistic nutrition, sustainability and spirituality.
I have a BA in Human Rights from Roehampton University in London, a certificate as professional make up artist from AOFM in London, a certificate in natural organic composting methods from Navdanya in India, and a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University in New York. My ultimate dream is to travel the world to try every fruit that exists.
