I like to cook the way I like to eat - fresh, healthy and nothing prepackaged.  This can be expensive and time consuming, so I try and find recipes that are fast and that don't have too many ingredients that are outside my ordinary pantry stock.  Lately, I have taken a serious interest in plant based eating and all the health benefits it brings.  I can't say that I am 100% vegan or will ever be but the benefits of eating more plant based meals is obvious.  I have had to watch my weight my entire life, if I can continue to do so and help the environment - all the better.  Cooking is all about experimenting - I hope you will try some of my ideas and enjoy!

Below you will find some of my favorite plant based meals, as well as, ways to offer transitional or flex meals.  Flex meals are ones that can easily be served to a group or family with different eating habits (meats vs. veggies).
