This site began as an evolution of an Etsy sewing business I’d started as a stay-at-home mom looking for something I could do from home. I taught myself to sew and began creating organic table linens, which were seen in the likes of Martha Stewart’s Whole Living Magazine and HGTV Magazine, and were sold at Food52 and the Bloomingdale’s flagship store. My creations were always made using eco-friendly materials, such as organic cotton and hemp. When I was ready to move my shop from Etsy to my own website, I decided to tie in a food theme to go with my table linens - and soon discovered that I preferred spending my time behind a camera and in the kitchen rather than over a sewing machine. It was hard to let the sewing business go, yet I am ready for this
I have chosen to be very selective about advertising on my site. While it can be profitable, I find it distracting to have random ads popping up and making noise all over the page. I only want positive products here that relate to what this site is all about: a simple, authentic lifestyle focused on food for the body and food for the soul. As an Amazon Affiliate, I currently have two shops that you can choose to visit: one is Tools & Ingredients, filled with items that I find useful for a plant-fueled lifestyle, and the other is the Bookstore, where you can find books that have inspired me along the way. Both of these shops allow you to make your purchases through Amazon quickly and easily, and I will earn a small "finder's fee" percentage of your purchases, at no extra cost to you. Thanks for your support!
You are invited along on this journey to discover just how beautiful real food is. While the recipes here will technically be vegan, I'm hoping that, whatever the lifestyle you choose, you will find them delicious and reasonable to prepare.
