Sharon Rhodes from The Honour System food blog.

WELCOME TO the honour system

Happy to see you here!

I’m Sharon Rhodes, and I live in picturesque Vancouver, Canada, where I am the recipe developer, food photographer and all-around content creator of The Honour System.

My goal with The Honour System is to make simple recipes with quality ingredients and inspire you to live a balanced lifestyle.

What started in 2013 as a fun side gig to share my healthier kitchen creations has become my full-time passion project.

With over ten years of experience, I have perfected the formula of developing easy and delicious recipes you will make over and over.

My Story

About fifteen years ago, I started getting serious about what I was feeding my body. I had joined a 30-day cleanse led by a nutritionist at the gym where I worked. The cleanse cut out the usuals – sugar, gluten, and dairy- and most of what I ate at the time revolved around those things.

So I had to get creative. I learned how to cook lentils, how to cook brown rice, and the perfect bowl of oatmeal. And I LOVED it—the planning, label reading, grocery shopping, prepping, and cooking. Biting into something I had made from scratch and having it taste delicious was so satisfying and rewarding. I felt in control. During that time, I became lowkey obsessed with reading food blogs. I had found a niche of healthy lifestyle bloggers – real people – who inspired me with their content and eventually to create my own.

That is how The Honour System was born. Drawing from my experience, I could share all the valuable things I had learned and inspire others to spend a little more time in the kitchen. So, I joined the ranks of a food blogger in the early days of 2013, and it has been a joy to grow this space into a strong community with thousands of loyal readers. I’m thankful to each of you for clicking through and supporting me.
