Hi! I’m Jennifer a Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert who believes in the power of plants and hopes to inspire others along the way! I absolutely love to meal prep, develop nutritionally packed plant-based recipes, style and photograph my plantiful creations. I’m constantly inspired by all things health + wellness. You can find some tasty tricks and tips on my Instagram and on my soon to be website where I’ll be offering more plant recipe inspiration, meal plan downloads and loads of wellness goodies!

I’m excited to be a part of the Yoso community because first and foremost, it’s my most favourite plant based yogurt brand and I love sharing and telling everyone about it! Being a part of the plant-based movement and helping people discover new (and better!) plant based alternatives, and helping them make the switch to better food choices is such a passion of mine. Also having the opportunity to create and share delicious recipes using the Yoso yogurt is also another reason I’m excited to be a part of this amazing community!

We asked Jenn a few questions about how she enjoys Yoso:

What’s your favourite Yoso product?

I’m so in love with the Yoso Unsweetened Premium Creamy Cultured Coconut. It’s the most tastiest base for all of my chia puddings and parfaits! I also love using it in my smoothies when I want them to be creamier!

What’s your favourite way to use Yoso?

As the base in my breakfast bowls! I use it in chia puddings, breakfast parfaits and smoothie/smoothie bowls! It also works great on a slice of my banana-berry bake!

Where your favourite place to shop for Yoso?

I always grab a tub from my local grocery store in the city! I shop at Fiesta Farms!

What are 3 other favourite healthy things you always keep in your fridge or pantry?

Fridge – greens (I can’t go a single day without them!), a Nut Milk and  blueberries!

Pantry – Chia seeds, my Vitamix and mason jars!
