I love food, and part of my plant-based cooking excursions have been to incorporate as many healthy habits, as well as recipes, into our routine. It's been scary fun *interesting* testing out various internet recipe finds on my family.

In today's daily post, we are asked to "describe a favorite childhood meal. The one meal that was a treat, meant "celebration" or was pure comfort!" Meal prep was fun in our house. … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
