The Yummy Cottage Plant-Based Eating
Food is central to the human experience and good food has the ability to marry moments and people together for a lifetime. Vegan or not, health conscious or slowly awakening, young and old alike, the Yummy Cottage has a little something to offer everyone. As a daughter, wife and now mother of four I have learned some valuable lessons in the kitchen, which includes making a mean Jamaican fry dumpling from start to finish in less than 5 minutes :-).  

Other than my dumpling making skills what do I have to show for all that time in the kitchen? Well glad you asked, I have been blessed with children who love their vegetables, soup, fruits and all sorts of healthy "tantalizing" foods. Friends and family often ask how do you do it?  

Food, fun, education and imagination.

The Yummy Cottage desires to bring what we experience as a family at home to a broader audience.

How?  By opening a catering/eatery business in Brevard, Fl. (WE DID IT!)

Small Steps, Big Goals
In August-September of  2017, The Yummy Cottage teamed up with  Green Foods Market in Malabar to see if there was a market in Brevard County, Florida for simple, healthy and let's not forget tasty food.


Here are some of the responses.

The Coconut and Navy Bean soup caused quite a stir, one patron commenting, "This is the best soup I've every had."

Everyone Benefits, Social Media Responses

We enjoy sharing in person and virtually,  recently we shared this vegan cheddar video it  generated so much interest that as per several request I created this how-to-video.

Community Activism

The Yummy Cottage promotes a holistic lifestyle, The  C3 Challenge  kicked off in January of 2017, in this clip I am giving a  presentation about the importance of reading food labels and cleansing.

The C3 Challenge is a self-paced 30 day cleansing program.  If you are in need of a good colon cleansing program with a support team of your peers feel free to check it out.
