Grace Smith

Grace is a contributing writer at I Ate My Way Through. A girl who plans her life around meal times, Grace dedicates her time to the pursuit of delicious food. Being the daughter of a Naturopath means she grew up with healthy eating in the forefront of her mind. Admittedly sacrificing flavour for health at times of weakness, she adores finding a new sugar-free dessert or gluten-free meal. When night time comes, she loves to explore Sydney’s vibrant bar scene, searching for secret nooks and crannies around the city. In her free time, you’ll always find Grace curled up with a good book, a cup of tea and her puppy Scrumpy.
