Food has always been such an integral part of my growing up, my memories, and what has brought my community together. Plates is a page intended to be a marker of moments where meals where shared, memories were sparked, and connection was made.

Several years ago I made the switch to a plant based (vegan) and gluten free lifestyle in efforts to support someone I love dearly who has Lymes disease. Little did I know it would be something greatly beneficial to my health as well, so years later this is still my choice of eating. Hope that these recipes and plates, and where to find them, bring you love and joy as you make them and enjoy them with whomever is at your table.
