Our two favorite gifts for a perfect Mama's Day include a whole day of delicious, homemade vegan food and a pack of Café Express mints, for an after dinner freshener, of course!
When it comes to healthy cooking, who better to draw inspiration from than our favorite do-gooder chef, Jamie Oliver. Not only has Jamie been a driving force in educating the masses on the importance of healthy eating and the dangers of sugar consumption, he’s also got a ton of amazing vegan recipes that will make mom swoon.
We’ve put together some of our favorites to build a DIY Mother’s Day menu that will leave all your minty fresh moms feeling loved, celebrated, and content; full of healthy, whole foods.
