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 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.

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.
Although I earn a living working as a food photographer, I also 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.
