What others are saying…
Oh my goodness….(your recipe) is crazy delicious! I almost never follow recipes, and I can’t remember a time that I followed a recipe and turned around and made it again! I will certainly be delving into the rest of your recipes. Thanks for an EASY and delicious vegan meal! – Beth
This was so good! More importantly – my husband loved it. It is VERY rare for my husband to love a vegan dish, so thank you!! – Devorah
Wow! Thank you for this recipe! This is the first vegan mac & cheese I have tried, and I loved it. I only have been eating vegan WFPB for a month and feel great, these kind of tasty, familiar recipes make it easy to keep going. My husband liked it as well and he is a dairy lover. – Carrie
Imagine waking up every day feeling good, knowing which foods to eat to keep your body healthy.

Mary Ellen’s Journey
I wanted to look for a way to resolve my issues more naturally than popping medications but I didn’t know how to start on a healthy path. I did things I thought would help like low fat and low carb diets but nothing ever seemed to work. Nutrition was confusing and there was so much conflicting evidence out there – where was I supposed to turn for guidance?
After years of constant struggling, my sister encouraged me to watch a documentary on the benefits of a plant-based diet and the horrors of factory farming and dairy/egg production. I grew up eating a SAD (Standard American Diet) filled with pasta, takeout, and soda, however, going plant-based made me focus on foods I have never thought about eating before like whole foods and lots and lots of veggies. After doing some nutritional testing,I found out that I had other food sensitivities so I cut those foods from my diet as well. And guess what? I started to feel better! With good nutrition and finding what worked for my unique body, the pain I had experienced all of my life was basically gone.
I went from sick and frustrated to living a life of wellness! After healing myself through plant-based foods, I decided to help others who are struggling by earning my master’s in nutrition. (You can check out my education and nutrition philosophy here).

Be sure to check out my recipe index too which has a variety of recipes with different options for foods because we are all bio-individual. Our biochemistries and genetic makeup differ from person to person, which means not every food will not be perfect for everyone. What might work for you, might not work for someone else – even in your own family. Most of my recipes are gluten-free because wheat gluten can be a problem for many people (including myself). I also offer substitutions (like oil-free options) and share diverse meals and ingredients to cater to a wide variety of food allergies, sensitivities, and restrictions.
