My name is Amanda. Several years ago, my husband and I decided to make the leap from being vegetarian to being vegan. It was the best decision we ever made. With the help of an arsenal of cookbooks and resources, I’ve made delicious meals over the years and discovered a passion for food and cooking that I never had before. I also discovered that I have a knack for putting together weekly menus that adhere to a strict budget and make the most of all of the ingredients so that nothing goes to waste.

Though I’m not quite there yet, my goal with The Peaceful Pantry is to post weekly meal plans and respective grocery lists to take the guesswork and intimidation out of vegan cooking. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or just interested in adding a few meat-free meals to your diet, hopefully you’ll look to this blog to find delicious recipes that just so happen to be vegan.

    Hi, I found your website today while searching for Trader Joe’s cinnamon rolls (I checked the ingredients at the store and it was vegan but wanted reassurance). I’m only 1 year into this fabulous vegan lifestyle, so I could learn a lot from your website. Hopefully you update soon and I’ll be reading and trying the recipes you post.:)

    • Amanda says:

      I’m so glad you found my blog! I’m trying to get back into blogging more often, so expect some more posts soon. I’m looking forward to hearing more from you!

    Do you have an email or contact page?

    • Amanda says:

      Hello Ariana,

      I can be reached at my gmail address. It’s adwhite17 AT gmail (trying to avoid spam by giving out the full address). Thanks for visiting my woefully neglected blog. I am hoping to jump back into it very soon. Take care!
