I don’t know whether to ask for your congratulations or commiserations. Not only have I been asked to interview DeliciouslyElla for Britmums Live on Friday, but we’ve been asked to sell and sign books next to her book stand. I think we may be crushed in the stampede.
If you didn’t know, DeliciouslyElla is a 23 year old with the fastest-selling debut cookbook evah. She is the gorgeous, glowing Queen of clean eating. She is not someone you want to stand next to at parties. Or book signings.
Despite these misgivings, I’m looking forward to it. I was sent her book, and despite feeling like clean eating is probably a step too far for me and my household, I’ve made several of her recipes and they’ve all been delicious. Above is the courgette and lentil salad – perfect for this time of year. I’ve also made her beetroot and classic hummus, but I’m holding fire on the sweet potato brownies, which sound amazing, but a friend has tried them and said they are probably lovely if you never eat sugar, but personally she’d rather have a Kitkat.
Have you tried clean eating? If you’ve got any questions for Ella, just leave a comment below or tweet us @crumbsfood and we’ll ask them. And if you see us at Britmums, come on over and say hello! Please!
