"Our story began in 2007, when I visited my doctor because of a number of troubling symptoms, including acid reflux and chronic painful heartburn. Blood tests revealed high cholesterol, and my doctor wrote me prescriptions for Simvistatin, Niaspan, Tricor, and Pantoprazole.

I have been plant-based for over a decade and through the years have watched others (and myself) say things that discourage someone on the Standard American Diet from ever trying plant-based eating.
Because of space limitations, this summer was the first time in many years that I did not have a garden. One of my favorite things to do in past summers was to walk out into the garden and pick a handful of herbs to brighten my plant-based dishes. I decided to create a “small-space garden” on our front porch steps and planted rosemary, basil, thyme and mint in pots. They turned out to be a decorative, productive and attractive addition to our front porch.
During the summer we love to visit our local farmer’s markets and stock up on a bounty of fresh and colorful produce. The only problem is that often times we get home and unpack all of the beautiful fruits and vegetables and are a bit overwhelmed with how to use all of it!
Refurbishing traditional recipes is a creative challenge that I love tackling. During our 10 day Jumpstarts at PlantPure, we have used many classic family recipes to lure people into the plant-based lifestyle; going plant-based doesn’t mean we must sacrifice flavor. In fact, the flavors and textures that can be found in the Plant Kingdom are amazing.
