I grew up eating from my mother's perpetually stocked freezer. It was an easy draw for this non-cook. But once I learned that whole food, plant-centered food preparation can be quick and delicious, I started to prepare and build an arsenal of simple, budget-friendly recipes I could repeat! Included here is a view from my plant-strong kitchen of meals, sweet endings, healthy toppings for salads, tacos, grain bowls & more. And don't forget the hydrating beverages made from single food ingredients you can recognize!

More seriously, these delicious whole food, plant-centered goodies are just real food - whole grains (many gluten-free), beans, legumes, raw and cooked vegetables, herbs and spices, fruit, nuts and seeds. From breakfast until supper I keep fueled sustainably eating a new kind of simple, healthy 'fast food' - easily assembled fresh ingredients full of bold flavors that pack a nutritional punch. Now I eat to thrive and teach others to unlock health in their own kitchens. Have a look.
