Irena Macri was born in Ukraine and moved to Australia with her mum at the age of sixteen. She graduated from the College of Fine Arts at UNSW with a Bachelor of Digital Media and went on to spend almost ten years building her career in the digital media industry in Australia before realising that her true calling lay elsewhere - in her kitchen. Being a passionate, self-taught cook and drawing on her love of world cuisines and all-natural ingredients, Irena decided to pour all her energy into producing delicious recipes that promote wellness and longevity. She has built a loyal following and an enthusiastic community around her website Eat Drink Paleo and co-authors a holistic lifestyle website, Rejuvenated For Life. Her paleo-inspired book, Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook has become a popular addition to kitchens around the world and her recipes and articles have appeared in many magazines and publications, including Body+Soul, Woman's Day, WellBeing Magazine, Prevention, The Guardian and LifestyleFood. Irena is a digital nomad and an avid traveller. She divides her time between London and Sydney.
