Sustainable Cooks serves up budget-friendly sustainable recipes with a side of balanced living. The only thing we’re strict about is not eating boring food.

Come for the food. Stay for the snark.

Step One: We’re in This Together

Most of us are busy and lots of things get in the way of living our best lives. I’ve been there before.

Heck, I’m still there most days.

Years of juggling a full-time job, commuting, kiddos, and caregiving for my parents have taught me some Jedi-like multi-tasking skills. I’m here to help you fit the sustainable lifestyle you have dreamed of into your current life and budget.
