Hi, I’m Bethany!
About Gallaxy Gastronomy
What is it that fuels you? For me, it’s food. Food, lack of food, and how it affects different bodies – I just find it fascinating! Having watched adults take on various diets my whole life, and also being told at the ripe age of 16, when I was about 110-115lbs that I “could probably lose some weight” (wow, the things that stick with you), I have read about and tested out many diets over the years. My keto journey started back in 2009, mostly just reading about it at the time, trying it for a few weeks here and there to see how I felt. Then came paleo – sick of all the cheese and cream, paleo was refreshing to me. My recent interest is fasting. I’ve done OMAD (one meal a day) off and on for about 3 years, and also did a 21-day water fast in May 2020 (what else do you do in a pandemic?). That was weird.
In late 2019 I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance (and a slight dairy intolerance as well). This means I had to give up a major food group in our house: pizza. Gallaxy Gastronomy is a way for me to experiment with creating new food ideas, or twisting my old favourite recipes to suit my new diet. I hope you enjoy this life-changing adventure with me and have fun creating my recipes at home. Take a look around; perhaps you’ll discover what fuels you as well. Maybe it’s not pizza after all.
Personal bits & bobs
I am from Glasgow, Scotland living currently in Newcastle, England. I did spend several years in the USA playing music in Austin, TX (I studied classical violin at Edinburgh Napier, also play the ukulele, saw, and sing).
Here in Newcastle, I have a beautiful wee boy named Elliot, and a handsome Greek man named Dimitris. We spend at least 1 month per year in Greece, usually sometime during the summer. You’ll see posts on my Instagram account when I’m away. The family home we go to on Lesvos island has grape vines, lemon trees and amazing fresh fish at the local market. It’s really a treat to grill there every night!
Side note: “Gallaxy” is a play on my last name, and is also used as part of my stage name for my music, Magical Spacecat.
