My name is Sam Rice, I'm 49 years old, originally from London, now living in Singapore.  I have one husband, two kids (aged 17 and 11) and no pets yet, my daughter is desperate for a dog!

My career so far has taken me from management consultant and travel business owner, to wine buyer and for the last 7 years, food writer. As I sit here at my desk in Singapore I know I have an awful lot to be thankful for. Of course life has lobbed a few grenades my way: my father died in 2008 from a sudden heart attack aged just 59, and tragically my youngest brother died four years later at 27, from complications arising from Type-1 diabetes.

I was in my early forties when the realisation dawned that my genetic heritage combined with a lack of attention to my general health was not exactly a recipe for longevity. So, laid up after a minor operation in 2012, I came to the conclusion that what I ate was fundamental to my future health. I wanted to improve my relationship with food and set about doing so. 

The culmination of this was the release in 2017 of The Midlife Kitchen, the best-selling cookbook I co-wrote with my good friend and award-winning writer Mimi Spencer. Being a published food writer is not something I thought I would achieve in my lifetime but it just goes to show, you never know what's around the corner.

Now I'm working on my next book, StealthHealth, hence the title of this blog.  It's a 4-week programme to help people gently redefine their relationship with food and lose weight along the way.

Happy eating!
