Eight years ago a new lifestyle emerged for Sarah that created much needed positive momentum.

Sarah was the first woman to blog about living an ancestral lifestyle and became on overnight Internet sensation, reaching millions around the globe with her inspiring message and delicious recipes. Sarah has since become an International Best Selling Author of five cookbooks and has had the opportunity to cook with and learn from amazing chefs, from Michelin Star restaurateurs in Italy to cooking school chefs in Thailand.
