Welcome to Middle Eats, my little corner of the internet where I share my journey, my food and my multitude of thoughts with anyone who wants to read them. I’m Kim, the girl behind the camel and I am proud to be a born and raised expat kid living in Dubai with my other half and our sausage dog.
After over 20 years in this crazy city I’ve had the amazing opportunity to dine on some of the best food the world has to offer, from street side cafes to five star restaurants with celebrity names gracing the door my culinary journey has been an amazing ride and it has taught me a deep appreciation for what we eat.
But Middle Eats isn’t just about food and eating, it’s about healing, love and health using food to do so. As someone with Psoriasis, and as a result severe joint pain, finding a natural management system is paramount for me. I believe in food as medicine, I believe that a clean diet with all the right vitamins and minerals can go miles towards healing and helping – more so than pharmaceuticals ever can. I only recently started my journey, and it has had its ups and downs, I struggle with food addiction and that has its own hurdles when it comes to maintaining my healing eating practices.
For me cooking is a release, it’s the perfect way to destress after a long day, clear my mind and bring together the people I love. I’m not a recipe follower as such, I am far more of a chuck it in and see what happens, keep tweaking until it works and serve, I love experimenting with flavours and ideas, but I also love keeping things simple; I live in a small home and I don’t have space to spread out a million things while I cook – plus I’m working on a pretty tight budget most of the time!
I believe in writing honestly and openly, my reviews don’t hold back and I pull no punches, I will share my experience as it happened, I do not buy into puff pieces and I will not lie to my readers for anyone so you can bet that everything I write in these pages it, to the best of my knowledge, true.
