Hello, I'm Bree!
I am a vegan recipe developer, food photographer, writer, blogger and tons of other fun and cool things! I have 20+ years of experience in the food industry, food is just something that I know.
I have been Vegan for the last 11 years and it was not a change that I made overnight. While I acknowledge there are people who can do that, there are others who simply can't and I know how hard the transition can be when you don't know a whole lot or you live in an area that doesn't offer much. That was my reality when I started making changes and I love helping others learn how to make the switch much easier than I or others had it.
Outside of that, I am married to my best friend in the whole world! Together we have a rescue golden sheltie who is the center of attention, and I have two adult kiddos! We currently reside in North Dakota, bud. However, that can change at any time due to my husband's job.
According to my husband I am silly and... driven. I'm also pro at dropping or breaking things! Sometimes my hands just do what they want and I can often be heard muttering "stupid hands" throughout the day.
When I'm not working or cooking, I enjoy playing video games, painting/drawing, crocheting, and anything having to do with computers. I'm a homebody 100% and enjoy just being at home doing whatever I want, but most of all... I love doing absolutely nothing.
Why did I choose the name Planty Of Eats?
It was my attempt at being clever and punny. But it also really represents what my site is about, honestly. It's about plants made into many foods!
What does this website offer?
Fully vegan recipes for those who are wanting to make a change in their food habits, those who are new to being vegan, and those who are seasoned vegans who are just looking for some more inspiration or a new recipe for their rotation. I'm also here for those who simply want to make one day a week a "plant-based night", with the hopes that it makes you want more =)
I do also offer allergen-friendly recipes such as Gluten-free, Soy-free, and Nut free. And just to cover all of my bases, every recipe on this site will always be free of: dairy, eggs, and any/all animal based products
If you're looking for:
- Easy vegan recipes

What will I not find on this website?
You will not see me call vegan a "diet" here, because being vegan is not a diet, it's an ethical lifestyle that goes beyond food.
While I may offer foods that fit a specific "diet" or popular food fad, I simply do not offer "dieting" advice or anything to do with it.
If you absolutely have to watch what you consume, I recommend checking labels of the food you are eating and consult with professionals about what is best for you. I do place nutritional labels on all of my recipes, however, because they are generated online by a free service, the accuracy may not be proven. The nutrition labels do not take other factors into account such as brand difference and additions. They are meant to be a basic guideline.
You are ultimately responsible for your own health, and if you must be accurate, you should discuss your meal plans with your doctor.
Planty of Eats is not responsible for what you choose to consume.
