Hiya, I’m Susan Jane!

… kitchen sorcerer and health geek. I’ve been writing cookbooks, cavorting on the telly and broadcasting my potty mouth over Irish airwaves for the last 15 years. You are so very welcome to my Substack recipe portal.

Who subscribes to Taking the Hell out of Healthy?

Seriously awesome people. They include savvy, curious, hungry readers who want to mainline more veg into their lives and boost their batteries.

It’s not like any other Substack - there are podcasts, videos, and books to support our monthly ingredient themes, facilitating a deeper learning of the majesty of our bodies. I like to think of the recipes as the tastiest homework you’ll ever get. But don’t worry - there are no exams or grading! Just a hotline to my kitchen where I answer any questions that may arise for you.

Substack is ad free (yes!) and way less frenetic than social media. No TikTok wormholes here, or controlling algorithms. I'm curating this space as a calm and nourishing pocket of the internet, to support you in your quest for better health and fizzier toes. I want my recipes to service your body like a Formula-1 pit stop. By subscribing, you will be supporting my work too, enabling me to do the research so you won't have to.
