Let’s talk about body confidence for a minute: do you have to choose between delicious food and feeling great in your body?
I love Jenne’s blog because she shows how to eat healthy and enjoy your meals. After all, taking care of our bodies is the #1 way to feel GOOD. Your body is the only place you have to live, after all!
BIG thank you to Jenne for allowing us to share this content with our tribe! #goodgirlcollective #feelGOOD
I reached out to Jenne some time ago about sharing her content with our tribe…and she was so kind to say, ” yes!”
Fast forward and we are HERE! I fell in love with Jenne several years ago on her blog (now major brand) Sweet Potato Soul. Listen, the beautiful images of the food she’s cooked will have you on her website for hours— before you even realize it. It will also empower to be about that VEGAN LIFE! She has recipes, videos, and a cookbook!
I think what I love most about the experience with Jenne is that you can feel her warmth and kindness… and I can tell you… it is the real thing!
Thank you again, Jenne for allowing us to share your content with our tribe!

Being that this vegan pecan pie doesn’t have a crust, it’s even easier and more convenient to make. I love that you can serve this crustless pie in ramekins and topped with vegan ice cream for a decadent dessert that feels a little fancier than the traditional version.
I think you’ll appreciate the secret ingredient that gives the pie filling that perfect sticky/creamy/gooey texture…it’s sweet potato!! Check out the video below to see how I make this vegan pecan pie, plus 2 more delicious vegan Thanksgiving desserts 🙂
