With movements like #veganuary and an increasing community of plant based foodies, it can be exciting and intimidating if you’re wanting to test the waters yourself. Whether you’ve been dipping your toes for a while or you’re brand new to the lifestyle, there is A LOT of information and even more schools of thought on how/why/when/what—when ditching animal products. Therefore, I thought it might be helpful to put together some tips and tricks to make the transition a bit easier!

Sassool: "Welcome to Our Home"

A week ago, my husband and I were treated to a delicious evening at Sassool-Cary. We had the most wonderful experience thanks to Simone, who, together with her family, works tirelessly to produce the freshest, highest quality, and most tasty food. The story behind Sassool is quite inspiring! The Saleh family has been blessing their communities with their mouthwatering family recipes since the 1970’s and you can taste every single ounce of history in their food. Named after Cecelia Saleh aka “Sassool”, this little piece of the Mediterranean is adored in the triangle, with locations in Cary, Raleigh, and the new Morgan Street Food Hall! I’m so excited to be telling you all about our experience and the amazing food!

FREE 5 DAY MEAL PLAN 10.18.2018

Oh happy day! A new meal plan is here and ready for you just in time for your grocery shopping adventures this weekend! Or download and save it for next week when you do your shopping (because grocery stores on the weekends can be a bit much sometimes, right?).

I’ll admit that when I made this plan I was feeling all sorts of Autumn feels so there are a few warm and comforting meals included. They all make for great leftovers and will feed you for days! We were eating Pot Pie, Chili, and Soup for lunches all week long! You could also freeze the pot pie filling, chili, and soup on the list for later in the winter for extra convenient and ease during chilly fall and winter nights.
