Recipe Creator

I’ve always been passionate about cooking to encourage a healthy lifestyle for my family. A couple of years ago I started eating a Plant Based diet and found that I can be so creative with my recipes using fresh, whole and simple ingredients. As a result I am excited to share these recipes with you! Everyone has heard the phrase “you are what you eat” that is a rule of thumb I like to follow. Living in Southern California, I am blessed to be around so many different cultural cuisines, I like to find inspiration for my cooking from them.

Outside of whipping up new recipes, I love to enjoy time with my family, travel or cuddle up with a good book (usually a good thriller). Most importantly, don’t let me forget about my 4 legged assistants, Toby and Bella, they enjoy being official taste testers too!

What You Will Find on Plant Based Life 123

Plant Based Life 123 is simply that, recipes developed around the plant based diet. Here you will find vegetarian recipes for somebody who is interested in the plant based diet. Or maybe you just want a great recipe for meatless Monday! Either way you will find recipes that are simple, delicious and do not require ingredients you have to search the far corners of the earth for!

In conclusion, thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you! I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes:

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition”
