From Garden to Plate: Growing Sustainable Vegan Food


From garden to plate, or straight to mouth, here is a quick look at some of the food we have been growing in our garden. With lots of learning along the way, we are enjoying the experience in learning to live a more sustainable life through this process as well as eating delicious healthy vegan meals made with lots of aroha (love).

  1. Your food looks spectacular’
    Your garden is very impressive.
    We are slack over summer because it is just so hot outdoors. My fair skin can’t handle it!
    At the moment we have parsley, stunted kale that the green grubs are enjoying, mint going to seed, garlic chives, a sweet potato vine and oregano.

    • Thanks, Ally. We have such a big backyard that other parts need some tidying up and hopefully lots more planted. Would love to be fully sustainable! Aha, fair enough, but still awesome that you have some plants growing. Summer might be your time for more sprouts & microgreens πŸ˜‰

  2. Your making me very hungry in California!Luckily its lunch time,will have to find something healthy.No it won’t have plate presentation like your photo’s,but hopefully will taste great.You have inspired us to read labels and think about the food we put in our mouths.By eating healthier and adding exercise we have managed to lose combined loss of 57 Lbs as a couple.Wish we had room to restart garden,but made into patio area years ago.Cheers Good Luck Buddy

    • Wow, very impressive and such a lovely comment! Getting a bit jealous over here though hearing about Gardein food at the Yardhouse and visits to the Veggie Grill. Awesome to see both of your commitment to so much walking as well, and I am sure that you are making some yummy healthy food. You have done very well with some veggies in pots. Am sure you can plant a few more veggies the same, or even in hanging baskets πŸ™‚
