Episode 24 of the Stash Podcast featuring cookbook author Jessica Murnane

Episode 024 – Cookbook Author Jessica Murnane

Jessica Murnane is a wellness advocate, podcaster, cookbook author, and all around stylish and powerful lady. She can rock a hat and kaftan like nobody’s business, all while creating delicious plant-based meals for her new cookbook, One Part Plant

Five years ago Jessica was headed for a hysterectomy at the age of thirty-three, because of her Stage 4 endometriosis. She couldn’t get out of bed most mornings because her pain had become so severe. She did everything she could to get better.  And then a friend shared a big idea that would not only help Jessica manage the symptoms of endometriosis, but literally change the course of her life.

In this episode you’ll hear more about Jessica’s struggle with endometriosis  as well as her entrepreneurial journey from graphic designer to stationary shop owner to bar owner, to finally finding her calling helping people through food. She candidly shares her struggles to find her calling, and how when she did find it, it lead her to unexpected places.

I’m not vegan but I love good food, and Jessica’s work has profoundly influenced me in my journey to eating more health fully.   Eating just on plant-based meal a day is totally doable, and has done a lot to improve how I feel and relate to food.e

I love Jessica’s down to earth, accessible approach to food and the conversation she has started with the one part plant movement.
