Meet the GlowstarSarah Malcolm @SarahMalcs

Sarah Malcolm is a freelance food stylist and photographer. After training as an actress, she started her blog www.sarahmalcolm.co.uk to share her passion and recipes for a healthy living.

Sarah wanted to inspire girls, like herself, tackle Polycystic Ovary Syndrome through their diet. A qualified yoga teacher, a passionate Psycle fan and a content generator for brands and bloggers is there nothing this inspiring 26 year old born ‘n bred Londoner cannot do?

Why did you launch @sarahmalcs?

I launched @sarahmalcs accidentally through my personal Instagram in 2015. It began naturally to purely post annoying food photos!

But as my love of food styling progressed, so did my Instagram.

It’s been a very organic process.  It reflects my own personal growth as I’ve welcomed food and fitness into my life. It has now grown to become a platform where I can share my honesty and insights into my life. I feel overwhelmingly grateful to be where I am right now.

Describe your feed?

It’s an array of endless breakfast bowls (it’s the only time I usually have to take photos of my food) intertwined with fitness and a whole lot of honesty!

 When did you discover your interest in healthy food?

I’m a born and bred London girl (although my central London friend’s would beg to differ as I grew up in High Barnet). Healthy food was always a priority in my house but not ever in a way that made it feel unapproachable or different.

My mum was a nurse and would always quiz me on what specific foods were high in and was all about the antioxidants!

She has always been the cook and is terrible at following recipes but a magician at making a “concoction”. My brothers are also great cooks and meals have always been an opportunity for making something delicious.

I didn’t really start cooking for myself until about 6 years ago. At University I was an absolutely atrocious cook. I’ve always held nutrition quite high in my diet, but it wasn’t until I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome that a massive shift happened.

I paid particular attention to lowering my sugar intake and getting enough leafy greens.

I actually remember being on holiday with my mum and her saying “I’m craving vegetables” and now I COMPLETELY get that.

What is the mission of @sarahmalcs?

Everything happened quite accidentally. I never ever would have dreamed I would be where I am right now. I’ve never really sat down and thought “right, this is where I want this to go”. It’s a reflection of me and I never want it to be a dishonest platform. I aim to continue to share my eating habits, recipes and fitness journey with whoever cares to listen. If I inspire women with PCOS on the way, then that is absolutely my goals met!

Why did you decided to collaborate with Glowcation?

I am a HUGE lover of discovering new places to eat and sharing that with my friends and followers.

Good food makes me incredibly happy. I think Glowcation is such a wonderful hub to share these amazing places that we are so lucky to go to!

Whenever I head to a new city, the first thing I do is check out the healthy eating scene and decide where I want to head to. It’s just brilliant to have all the information in one place from trusted reviewers!

What is the future of healthy eating in London and Europe?

I think definitely it’s about making everything much more accessible and less ‘fad-ish’. It’s incredible to see so many things popping up in mainstream shops and cafe’s that 5 years ago would have been only served in the few and far between health food shops. I’m not a vegan, but I think the fact that veganism is on the rise is also so brilliant and how people are starting to eat much more mindfully. It’s definitely a brilliant step in the right direction. I’m beyond proud to live in a city where that is becoming a priority.

What are the top five things in life that make you glow?

Definitely eating good food amongst great company is my number 1, followed by laughing uncontrollably at stupid things, walking in nature, yoga and Psycle classes.
