With over 20 years of cooking experience, I'm passionate about shifting the paradigm around leading a healthy lifestyle, specifically with respect to Vegan/Vegetarianism within food deserts & under served communities.
All recipes are my original recipes shared here to spread the love for vegan/vegetarianism to all seeking to make the shift.
My Philosophy: Eat good, look good, feel good <3
