Hi, I’m Elyssa! I’m a sweets and cheese lover who is trying to eat more plants. Food has always been a huge part of my life, from the restaurants I started working in when I was 15 to all of the “diets” I tried. My husband and I started this blog because we wanted to add more plants in to our lives, but were finding it tough to find the time. We know we aren’t perfect when it comes to our health, but adding more vegetables has had a majorly positive impact on our health. Now we want to help those like us who are plant-curious, but can’t spend hours in the kitchen. We don’t believe in calling ourselves vegans or plant based because let’s face it: some of us need a slice of pizza every now and then to survive.
Also, I love the challenge of making plant-based food taste just as good if not better than its meat counterpart. Growing up, my dad was a pro at using the fewest number of ingredients to make the most amount of flavor. Now I’m trying to do the same with plant-based food by making each recipe the perfect combination of simple and delicious.
Doing all of the real work is my amazing husband, Austin. Don’t tell him this, but I am marrying him because of his dance moves ;). He is what keeps this blog running and me semi-sane. I am a lucky lady to have him as my number one fan and newly discovered developer and video editor. He is by far the best taste tester and is always eager to help me come up with new ideas for the blog and over all our life.
