A FOOD blogger from Pershore has been shortlisted for an award at the UK Blog Awards.

Ewa Krzepisz writes a blog called ‘Let’s Eat Smart’ which is ‘a website devoted to simple, healthy and enjoyable cooking’.

Let’s Eat Smart is one of only nine blogs to make it through to the final in the food and drink category out of more than 4,000 entries.

She said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be a finalist and so incredibly thankful to all of those who voted. I am only a self-taught food photographer and cook from Pershore, and I feel extremely privileged to be in the final.”

All of the recipes that she creates are vegetarian, and the majority are suitable for vegans.

She added: “My goal is to inspire people to embrace more plant-based foods in their diets, without feeling the least bit deprived.

“I struggled to find easy to follow vegan recipes and the ones I did find called for ingredients I’ve never even heard of, which is why I decided to start my own blog.

“I have never had a professional lesson and I am just an ordinary girl who loves cooking and attempting new recipes, and I just hope I can inspire others to not only start eating more healthy but also to encourage them to experiment in the kitchen. And to prove that healthy eating, really isn’t that hard.”

The UK Blog Awards final will take place on Friday April 20 at a secret location.
