Hey there, I'm Regina, but feel free to shout out "Reg" or "Regi" – I'll pretty much spin around to anything that sounds remotely like "veg" or "veggie." I'm the head nut and chief twig behind Nuts & Twigs. I'm a multitasking wife, mom, and former teacher trying to elevate plants from sidekick status to the main event on your family's dinner plate. I want greens to get their time in the spotlight in your home and maybe, just maybe, convince your family that kale can taste good.
And then there's Rob, the wizard behind the curtain at Nuts & Twigs. I call him my husband but you can call him Rob or "Hey, computer guy," and he'll likely respond with a knowing nod and a big smile. He's the tech maestro and digital landscaper who makes sure everything runs smoothly in our online veggie patch. While I'm out front championing the greens, he's in the back, juggling code, analytics, and all things Google to keep our plant-based ship sailing on the digital seas. I like to think of him as the root system of my leafy endeavors – essential, underground, and incredibly powerful. With Rob handling the digital wizardry, we ensure that Nuts & Twigs is not just a feast for your stomach but a seamless experience for your screen too.
Rob, in all his pixel-perfect glory, is coming soon!
Why Nuts & Twigs?
'Nuts and Twigs' is a cheeky jab at the old belief that vegan food is, you know, only nuts and twigs. But I'm here to change those outdated "rabbit food" notions with tons of recipes that are anything but bland or boring.
With over 25 years of living plant-based, raising three kids on this lifestyle, and even converting my meat-loving husband to the greener side of life, I've gathered a ton of experience, expertise, and passion, not to mention recipes - dare I say - I make nuts and twigs delicious.
Here at Nuts and Twigs, I want to bust those crusty old vegan food myths wide open - yes, I'm looking at you, "salad is sad" and "tofu has no taste". I want everyone to ditch those old stereotypes and showcase vegan food that’s delicious, rich, vibrant, and satisfying. I believe in celebrating the entire spectrum of plant-based food, so whether you're in the mood for a light, healthy, energizing lunch, a comfort meal that harks back to your favorite childhood memories, or craving a decadent dessert, I've got something for you.
With the journey I've been on, I've got all the insider tips and tricks to make you fall in love with this way of eating. So embrace the meals on the site, put on your apron, and let's break bread over dishes that promise to be deliciously nourishing or naughty (or a bit of both!).
What You'll Find On Nuts & Twigs
Recipes, recipes, and more recipes. At Nuts & Twigs, we'll show that ditching animal products doesn't mean ditching flavor, sacrificing nutrition, or triggering a hunger strike at home with a menu of delicious vegan recipes. Every week, we're dropping new, flavorful recipes that are so good that they'll have you questioning your lifelong romance with cheese.
While we are primarily a recipe site, I also have articles that offer tips and what we have learned about plant-based and vegan living through the many years. It has certainly been a marathon, not a sprint. Raising a gang on greens and beans has been less of a straight path and more of an exhilarating roller coaster, with countless late-night reading sessions to ensure I was keeping my family healthy. My journey turned into a full-blown love affair and obsession with crafting meals that leave everyone at the table happy and healthy, and I want to share everything I've learned with you.
