Welcome to Wonderful Women, my regular feature celebrating all the kick-ass, inspirational ladies out there. This week, it’s an honour to speak to the formidable Natasha Corrett of Honestly Healthy.

One of the UK’s top vegetarian chefs, she founded Honestly Healthy in 2010, as a way to inspire and educate others on a healthy way of living. Renowned for her delicious and exciting veggie recipes, Natasha proves that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be boring.

Natasha has not just 1 but 4 (!!) best-selling cookbooks under her belt. Her first 2 were co-written with nutritional therapist Vicki Edgson, who created the principles of Honestly Healthy and her latest, Honestly Healthy in a Hurry, released in May 2016  helps busy people find time to cook from scratch, by prepping and planning meals in advance. It’s little wonder she has an army of A-list fans that include Victoria Beckham, Robbie Williams, Lily Allen, Fearne Cotton, Millie Mackintosh and Jessie Ware.

Over to Natasha…

Describe a typical day for you?

Nothing is typical in my life! I have recently, in the last year moved out to live in Gloucestershire so I try to head into London 2 days a week. The rest of the time I am developing recipes or doing admin! In London, I run around for my meetings and sit with my team at my office.

What do you feel are your biggest achievements?

Wow – I would say publishing 4 best-selling books has got to be up there! Getting people’s testimonials about how my recipes have changed their life is one of the most amazing feelings, knowing that all my hard work is really making a difference to peoples’ lives.

What’s in your handbag/ satchel?

All very un-glamorous!  Poo bags for my dog! Some kind of snack like a green smoothie, tangerine or granola bar – being pregnant I can’t be caught without food! A laptop and of course a phone charger!

What are your ambitions in life?  They have definitely changed over time. I use to want to take on the world and run a global business empire. Now I am happy to settle with making a difference and being a good mother, being happy and feeling loved is really important to me.

What advice do you know now, since becoming pregnant you want to share with others?

I think you get a bigger perspective on life. Nothing really matters as much anymore apart from this little person growing inside me. Things go wrong and you just deal with it. I get less emotional about things and I think I am a bit kinder too which isn’t a bad thing!

What do you wish you’d known at the start of your career you now know?

Get a good accountant! Go with your gut every single time. A women’s intuition is extremely strong.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Hopefully still with a successful business doing what I love which is writing recipes, a couple kids, a happy husband living in the Cotswolds. Maybe a little less money troubles!

What advice would you give a budding chef and bestselling author?

Find your niche. Don’t copy others and keep reinventing yourself. If people copy you take it as a sign of flattery.

Finally, happiness is…  A big chocolate cake dripping with ice-cream and a box set in front of the fire on a rainy day.

    What an inspirational lady – four books!! There were two parts that resonated for me – the bit about ambitions changing which I can certainly relate to. And her point about going with intuition. I feel that too. Will have to check her recipes out now #brillblogposts
