Stop counting calories, obsessively dieting, and feeling guilty about food.

september special offer from the ground up

Eat more real food instead. Delicious food. Food from home. Food you intuitively know is going to fuel you and feed you and make you feel fantastic.

What’s that? No time? No idea where to begin? Great. I’m glad you’re here. Whether you need some inspiration to get cooking – or you’d like someone to bring delicious, nourishing food to you – you’re in the right spot. 

The recipes and information I share here are intended to take away some of the kitchen intimidation factor, to connect you to your food and illuminate what might be holding you back from feeling the best you’ve ever felt.

My whole-food recipes are vegan and gluten-free, and have been created specially for anyone new to plant-based eating. These are recipes for energy, vibrancy, and uber-confidence. And hey, if those still seem like a stretch, I’d love to plan, prepare and deliver a customized set of meals to you. 

I am all about eating like you love yourself (because you should!). I focus on simple ingredients, primarily nutrient-dense plants. (That is, plant foods that pack a big healthful punch of nourishment in every bite, without the addition of artificial or processed junk). The quality of the food we eat each day matters. All food isn’t created equal. 

When we make our own vitality a priority by consistently choosing to eat in a way that nourishes and supports us, we can better understand our relationship with eating. No calorie counting. No restriction. Just eating more awesomely more of the time. 

Please take a peek around at the recipes and articles on the site, and reach out if you have questions. I would love to chat! Check out the links to the right, too, for vegan meal delivery, online courses and one-on-one nutrition counseling.

It’s been a dessert-y month over here in the From the Ground Up kitchen! Surprising, and also so so so good. I’ve been experimenting with some gentle sweeteners like maple syrup and coconut sugar to see how we can work

cooking class recap: vegan-vegetarian casual entertaining.

We’ve been watching a lot of Master Chef lately. I haven’t quite figured out what I love most about it: the competition, the creativity, the inventiveness, the food inspiration, the ridiculous edits given to each “character” (because, truly, their personas
