Happy New Year! As some of you know, I’m starting the year out on a different path. No resolutions, no ‘feel better’ schemes, no diet plans. Just some good-old-fashion organization and inspiration. I’m spending the month of January helping you reset your pantry and be inspired to cook from all those grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds you might already have on hand. I’ll be doing weekly recap emails you can sign-up for or you can follow along on YouTube or keep up on instagram. Don’t worry though- I still have quite a few delicious recipes I’m sharing on the site.

So, if you’re just looking to cook a few more plant-based meals or you’re looking to overhaul your dinners, I have you covered. Hope you enjoy the series and happy cooking!

And to get started, a bit of inspiration for all those pantry items I’ll be chatting about throughout the month!
