Hello and welcome to Holly’s Wholesome Kitchen. I can’t express how overjoyed I am (well, maybe I could through the medium of dance) to finally have my recipes all under one roof.
Since publishing my blog ‘The Skin I’m In’ back in May 2012, I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback it has received and as a result, I have been fortunate enough to give guidance and support to others who are suffering with depression and problems with their skin as a result of overuse of topical steroids.
My quest, wish, dream, desire, aim, is to continue to support those who ask for my help whilst using my website as a platform to promote the benefits of eating healing, nutritious, wholesome foods by sharing my delicious, healthy recipes.
To cut a long story short, I suffered with various skin conditions over the years. Acne was prevalent in my teens and early twenties and as a result of consistent antibiotic use, I developed Sebhorreic Dermatitis on my face for which I was prescribed various topical steroids. After 4 years of applying steroids to my face, I withdrew, cold-turkey. It almost broke me.
During my darkest hour, the turning point, I knew that I had to treat my body from the inside in order for it to heal once and for all. I sought the help of an amazing nutritional therapist and with her guidance and support, I managed to detox my body and rid it of the poisonous steroids. My face blew-up, it felt like it was on fire and for 3 months, during cessation, I just had to be patient and let my body do its thing and the supplements work their magic.
This is what amazes me so much about the body. It is truly remarkable. It knows how to heal itself and with the proper nourishment going in, the health benefits can be truly amazing. Having had first-hand experience of healing from the inside, I am absolutely dedicated to sharing my passion about the curative benefits of eating wholesome foods and nourishing the body with what it requires to work at its optimum capability.
Over the past year, I have built-up a freelance writing and photography client base and I regularly write for Vegan Food & Living Magazine, The Hastings Independent Press and The Monthly Seagull. I also create blog posts for healthy food businesses and I take product photography shots. A combination of all of these things keeps my very busy and very happy and I love sharing my healthy recipes on my website, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter accounts. Keep checking-in for all the goss!
I hope you like my recipes, please feel free to leave feedback or ask any questions you may have.
With much love and encouragement,

Thank you so much, Moram!
My Crowdfunder ended this morning and I raised 50% of my target which is amazing.
Hope you’re very well and hope to see you soon xxx
I really enjoy reading your articles in the Hastings Independent and was curious to go on your blog.
It was fascinating to hear your personal story, that you had experienced Seboherreic Dermatitis and have actively healed your skin from the inside out. I could really connect with your skin problems as I have Seboherric Dermatitis too. It seems to have flared up a lot at the moment, it could be the weather or other factors.
It would be great to meet you and find what certain foods or strategies worked for you to deal with this persistent skin issue.
How are you? Thank you so, so much for your message. I’m sorry for my late reply – I’ve just got back on to my website after a couple of weeks not being able to access it.
I’m sorry to hear that you have experienced a flare-up with your Sen Derm. It can be quite stifling can’t it when you’re in the middle of it.
I would love to help, whereabouts do you live? Could you give me your email address and we can arrange an email chat first if you like?
I’m the meantime, sending you love and encouragement xxx
Hope you are having a good day.
I’ve just been on your site and have seen your message that you replied to.
That would be great to meet you and find out your experiences in dealing with Seboherric dermatitis as I find not many people seem to have it or know what it is.
I live in Sedlescombe. Here is my email address email@example.com
Look forward to hearing from you.
