Ella MillsElla Mills/InstagramThere’s one thing Deliciously Ella always needs in her kitchen.

At only 26 years old, Ella Mills, better known as Deliciously Ella, has more than a million followers on Instagram and product ranges in the retail giants like Starbucks and Sainsbury’s.

Her food empire is based around healthy eating and living, and making smart swaps to cook and eat food that’s still delicious — but there’s one kitchen staple she absolutely couldn’t live without.

“If I had to chose one ingredient I couldn’t live without it would probably be a really good herb and spice rack, because I think it’s the easier way to add so much flavour to what you do,” she told Business Insider.

“Things like turmeric, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, mustard seeds, ginger, cinnamon, curry powder — I think that is the kind of magic to any dish and that is the one thing I couldn’t live without.”

Business Insider followed Mills for a day to see what a day in her life is really like — and she also gave us some insight into how she runs a successful business with her husband.
