Hello I am Charlotte Markham, the founder of Frog Hollow Catering and I make top quality plant – based cakes with nuts, fruits and vegetables. I can help you to become a happier and healthier you because it’s a journey I have experienced myself.
With over two decades of culinary experience, I know a thing or two about food. I’ve cooked in restaurants, created working feasts in director’s dining rooms, sautéed on the high seas aboard luxury yachts and served up feasts at many more than four weddings and a funeral!
It was whilst I was taking a short career break to spend time with my new-born daughter, that I became one of the 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.K.; and it was this life changing moment that inspired me to turn the tables and change my own life instead. I enlisted the support I needed to get fit and healthy again, a combination of personal training and a well-known lifestyle weight management programme, and despite my oncologist’s pessimistic view that due to my drug therapy I would struggle to lose weight, I lost three and a half stone in just over six months.
Notwithstanding the success in achieving my weight loss goal, I had become disenchanted that on the way I had been encouraged to choose fat-free and diet foods, that contained artificial sweeteners and additives. I felt that they weren’t filling me with energy and in fact were doing me harm. I made a conscious decision to step away from the sweeteners and consume only nutritious whole foods. With nothing on the market that was completely natural and still able to curb my sugar cravings, I set about creating my own energy bites made with fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. I finally had the treat I wanted. A snack that was filling, bursting with goodness and tasted better than the sweet foods I craved.
The next sector…
I remain fit and healthy and have caught the running bug, I am committed to my new lifestyle and love it so much I decided to share my delicious treats with others who are either on a weight loss journey or need a healthy energy boost in their busy lives.
