For the Foodie

SSV Planting Our Roots Ebook

This book stemmed from both our family roots and our parent’s desire to veganize our childhood favorites. Food has always been the centerpiece in both of our households growing up; it brought the whole family together night after night with good conversation and a whole lot of love. We not only want to share the importance of family and food, but also the fun and ease of creating vegan versions of our favorite childhood recipes without having to forego any nostalgic and authentic flavors of each dish.

Plus it is currently on sale for just $5 (no code required)!

What you will find in this ebook:

  • 40 brand new recipes, including veganized Filipino and Italian classics we grew up eating such as: pancit, caponata, kare kare, giambotta, afritada and more!
  • Our vegan stories along with that of our parents
  • Ingredient info and cooking tips
  • Our kitchen “must-haves”

We understand the importance of tradition and family, so with this, we encourage you to recreate vegan versions of your family favorites, too!

We have been using their products for years now and could not recommend them enough!

DIY Vegan Cookie Platter

When I (Jasmine) was in school and working a minimum wage job, the holidays were always a hard time for me because gifts were way out of my budget. So, something that I started doing (and still do to this day) is make baked goods for my loved ones. What I would do was purchase good quality second hand plates from thrift stores, make 3-4 cookie recipes and package them all up with some wrapping or tissue paper. It was easy to make plus helped me put together 5-6 gifts at once so it also saved some time! Here are a few recipes that I think would be perfect for your cookie platter:

For Self-Care
