There are delicious, whole plant-based recipes included, PLUS you can ADD YOUR OWN RECIPES into the planner! In addition, you can generate shopping lists, modify/view the planner/shopping list from any mobile device, and MORE! It's truly awesome!

Mrs. Plant's Hair and Body Blessings

Even before I was vegan, I struggled with my hair and skin. I have hereditary hair thinning (called female-patterned baldness) and have had VERY dry and sensitive skin since my hysterectomy in my early 40s. I FINALLY found two products (see below) I really love and have had great success using. I am not sponsored by these products; I just happened upon them and want to share them with you! BOTH have super high reviews, so check them out!


FRESHIE NATURAL FEMININE WASH - I love this gentle, lovely-smelling body wash because it is free of harsh chemicals, is vegan and cruelty-free. You only need a dime-sized portion to lather up, and it's VERY gentle on your sensitive skin or around your private areas. I LOVE IT!



WONDER SEED HEMP SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER - This incredible-smelling, hair follicle-strengthening shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair soft and shiny! It's vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and made from natural, high-quality ingredients. Again, a little goes a LONG way with these two products!

Wedding Soup

I'm calling this Wedding Soup because it will slim me down more before my son's wedding ;-) You can add or delete any veggies that you like! You can even add potato chunks. It's a flexible soup!

2 leeks (white part only) or 1 yellow onion, sliced thinly
1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thinly
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
3 organic carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
8 oz. baby bella or button mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 medium zucchini, chopped
One 28-oz. can crushed organic tomatoes with basil
1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 T. Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Tomato Basil Garlic blend seasoning
1 T Italian seasoning (or 1/2 T basil and 1/2 T oregano)
1/4 t. black pepper
1 bag of frozen organic spinach or fresh spinach and/or kale
salt to taste

Put all ingredients into the Instant Pot EXCEPT the spinach and/or kale and salt. Fill the pot with water to the max line. Secure the lid and set for 10 minutes on high pressure with NATURAL RELEASE. Add greens and salt AFTER cooking and the pressure has come down.
