Hello, welcome to Living Alchemy!

My name is Katie McFarlane; dancer, creative, yogi and lover of nature. This is my little corner of the internet where I can share the things in my life that I feel nourish me, keep me creative and could hopefully do the same for you. The recipes that you will find here follow my typical every day style of eating and are made up of plant-based whole foods. I tend to eat seasonal, organic and vibrant food.

My relationship with food has not always been a happy one but about 5 years ago I started to eat more consciously to fuel my body for the rigorous lifestyle of full time dance training. This way of living and eating really helped me to connect to my body, feel like I was doing something positive for myself (the environment and the animals) and aided me in getting the life back that an eating disorder had taken from me.

It excites me to be in my little kitchen preparing food for myself and my loved ones knowing that sharing food is a great gift.

I’m a highly sensitive girl with a big love for literature, herbal tea, dancing at all times and David Bowie. Being a typical Scorpio I tend to be passionate, intuitive and creative (and sometimes way too overly intense). I’d take a night in with a good book and hot cacao over a party any day.


Living – the pursuit of the lifestyle of the specified type. alive.
