    Martyna is a Sydney-based recipe developer, e-cookbook author and food blogger. She has worked for all-natural brands such as Anathoth and Brookfarm and is a regular contributor to Honest Cooking Magazine. Her passion for wholesome, sustainable food comes through in the recipes she creates for both her clients and the blog, Wholesome Cook.

    The aim of Wholesome Cook is to create a point of reference for healthy, nutritious and easy to prepare meals, without breaking the bank or over-complicating things. Think of it as an anti-revolution to the world of highly processed, fast-food and pre-packaged meals.

    Martyna’s new e-cookbook, My Whole Food Philosophy, features 29 delicious low additive and allergy friendly recipes and tips on how to make the change from junk food to whole food without giving up your favourites. She shares some of the recipes from the book, which is available on Amazon, iTunes and at Wholesome Cook, here on Do Something! Foodwise.
