  6. Oh my goodness. These are all slam dunk recipes! I cant wait to whip up a few of them this weekend. I went plant based this month in honor of my sweet partner and honestly just wanting to continue my journey of feeling better. Im a sucker for quick easy recipes and everything on here looks (for the most part) super easy!

    I cant wait to see where I am in the next few months. Do I go full plant based, do I miss cheese pizza, the possibilities are endless!

    • Why thank you, Erin! And so exciting that you’re trying out plant-based meals this month. If you even have any questions, I respond pretty quickly on instagram and twitter. As for pizza, Daiya and Sweet Earth Foods have some great freezer options. But, more and more pizza spots are carrying vegan cheese!
