The journey of starting Ketolicious Kreations began in 2019 when I started getting disillusioned with working in Accounting and Finance for over a decade. Despite having a great job, married to a wonderful man and having two fantastic kids, I felt like I needed more in my life. I wanted a purpose, a sense of fulfillment and to be passionate about what I was doing.
What was my passion? Cooking! I love hosting dinners and cooking healthy meals for my family. Having come across the Ketogenic lifestyle a number of years back, it became a big game changer for me. I lost about 20kg from going sugar free and carb free and was able to keep the weight off. The only issue I had with Keto was the lack of meal variety. The seed for Ketolicious Kreations was born.
I formed my business with my family in mind. My business fits around my kids’ school hours and all recipes are tried and tested by my whole family. There are no tougher critics than kids so all meals that get the tick of approval make it through to the menu.
In the first year of business, I was honoured to be a finalist in the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards in two categories of Emerging AusMumpreneur and Making a Difference (Health). It is great to be recognised however I don’t do it for the awards and accolades, I do it as I love cooking and assisting people.
The clients I serve tend to lead busy lives, may not find cooking enjoyable or would love to have the occasional night off. I have now become a registered NDIS provider which means a lot to me as I wanted my service to be available for NDIS participants so they could get a helping hand.
My long term goal is to continue to educate people about the keto diet, work on more cookbooks and expand Ketolicious Kreations outside Perth so people have access to home-made healthy meals Australia-wide.
