  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Biographical Notes

I changed my whole life from my little London kitchen and had tremendous fun doing it; this book is what I have learned so far.

Xochi's first career was as a trends journalist and freelance writer for the Financial Times and the Evening Standard before abandoning office life to set up a street food van, Rainbo. But with that life came long hours, unhealthy food and mounting stress, and a dawning realisation that she could not sustain this pace of life in the long term. Xochi enrolled at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and started writing The Naturalista blog as a means of documenting her journey back to vitality through food, natural beauty and mindfulness.

With her husband Ben, Xochi travels to various teachers and workshops in the UK and beyond to delve ever deeper into what it means to live a healthy, balanced and spiritually connected life.

As we well know, the food and health industry is saturated with new gen '-free' foodies. What I like about The Naturalista is that it's not so much a strict eating plan but a way of life that she calmly follows herself - from canapés to homemade deodorant - and encourages you to follow. It's not some marketing guff; you can see in her daily apparel that she has a very free thinking, natural approach to life. Whilst I, myself, sadly have rather the opposite, Xochi does encourage me to look at happy and healthy alternatives. — Pandora Sykes, Fashion Features Editor, Sunday Times Style
Xochi understands and truly lives a holistic lifestyle and her wealth of experience across the fields of nutrition, fashion, interiors and health have enabled her to have a singular vision. You only have to read her work or look at her digital channels to see the authenticity if her principles. Aside from having a beautiful - and indeed highly aspirational - aesthetic, she has the ability to express concisely and in layman's terms what many women are looking for: a more balanced (both spiritually and health-wise) lifestyle. — Senior Fashion Features Editor at Large (Grazia, Glamour), Katherine Ormerod
