Invite Plants To Every Meal has been helping individuals change their lifestyles for the better by teaching them how to cook whole food plant-based meals. The beautiful discovery is that nature has provided so much of what we need to assist our bodies to perform at it's greatest. I have always been passionate about cooking. When I noticed how my body/health began to improve, the passion grew and had to be shared with everyone. Change really can begin as early at your next meal.
Ahhhh, the food! You can have fun enjoying whole plant foods! You will eat a variety of vegetables, whole grains,herbs, fruits, nuts, seeds, nut milks and more...
It varies for many, but typically within one week or so you may notice:
Over a month or two:
Whole food, plant-based.
Great question! Your new way of eating may taste bland in the beginning, but hang on. Your taste-buds will typically adjust over a 3–6-week period before the delicious natural flavors come through...or maybe sooner! Give yourself time, it all comes together and will be so worth it!
Yes! You would be surprised how everything you need can be easily accessible in many of the grocery stores you probably already shop.
Not at all! Whole grains, legumes, grains, and tubers are the foundation of your diet and are among the least expensive and most nutritious food products on the planet. Tip: utilize bulk bins, shop in season, shop the frozen fruit and vegetable sales, and stock up.
B-12 is needed. Work with your primary care physician to determine your levels of Vitamin D and any other concerns/questions you may have.
Technically a WFPB diet is vegan, BUT a vegan diet isn’t necessarily WFPB. Let me clarify this for you:
Vegan: eliminates animal products and by-products, but not processed foods, oil, salt or sugar
WFPB: whole and minimally processed plant foods
WFPB-NSOS: whole and minimally processed plant foods, no salt, oil, or sugar
Vegetarian: eats no animal products but typically eats dairy
Pescatarian: a vegetarian diet that includes fish

If you have ever had the opportunity to meet Tiffany, you will see why she is described as a “Plant-Based Gardener,” whose zeal to plant as many seeds of nutritional health and awareness is second to none. With some rooted knowledge watered with life application, her desire is for everyone to blossom and grow into a better quality of life through food.
Her heart, experience, and education speak for themselves. She first began her transition in 2010 upon losing one of the most important people in her life, her grandmother, Dorothy. “To say she was the “icing on the cake” in my life is putting it very mildly. She was that constant comfort of love and giver of life-changing words of wisdom, and I’ll always be grateful for the years we had together.” After her passing, it was when Tiffany immediately knew that her life must change, nutritionally. And thus from there, first starting as a Pescatarian and then transitioning from there, a whole food plant based life was born. Committed to this very new way of living, she immersed herself (and continues to do so) in plant-based learning.
Proudly, she continues to expand her knowledge of plant-based nutrition. Tiffany is a Licensed Food For Life Instructor with the Physicians For Responsible Medicine. She is a graduate of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies from eCornell University earning a Plant-Based Certification and received her Culinary Plant Based Certification from Rouxbe Forks Over Knives Culinary School. She has also obtained her Certified Health/Wellness Coach Certification with an emphasis on Lifestyle Medicine from WellCoaches as well as completing her Culinary Coaching Certification Program from Harvard University.
She truly understood that gathering many plant-based cooking techniques would add an even higher level of excitement when creating delicious, versatile healthy meals. And now as a Licensed Food For Life Instructor, she looks forward to demonstrating to everyone that wonderful changes to your health can start to happen right in your very own kitchen.
When asked what is something she is most grateful for, she left us speechless. “Honestly, although I am grateful for many things in my life, I am most grateful that I have been able to transition my family to this lifestyle and fortunate enough to see amazing changes in their lives by simply what I choose to place in my grocery cart. It really is that simple to me. If I can give my children/family the tools to live lives full of vitality and health through knowledge of nutrition, my smile is complete. I feel I have done that and will continue to passionately do so for anybody who can hear the sound of my voice.
Tiffany proudly serves Frisco, Plano, Allen, Little Elm, Prosper, and many other surrounding local areas.
