The Wales international fly-half set up healthy food company Onest Food in 2014, continuing in her rugby career while running the business.
Snowsill started Onest by operating food vans outside gyms, but expanded to delivery following a conversation with a friend who was looking for a healthy eating plan and wanted the food delivered.
She specifically sought out those business models in order to ensure that she did not have to work on weekends so as to leave time to play rugby. Her signature dish uses an omelette style egg as a wrap.
