We are all connected across time and space and our actions toward the earth and toward each other directly affect those around the globe.True sustainability extends the concept of justice for all those living to all those not yet born.


Eating clean is essential to our own wellbeing, that of our future families and to the health of the planet. As someone who has tried every diet and health philosophy out there, I am committed to discovering the best way to nourish my body.


True happiness is a choice, but our everyday decisions and surroundings have a significant impact on our mental and emotional wellbeing. Simplicity is just one of the many ways that we can find fulfillment in life. Less truly is more.

What is Plate & Planet?

Plate & Planet was created by Jordan Schanda as an outlet to share her knowledge and opinions on living simply and sustainable, as well as eating clean, healthy food that tastes great.

One of Jordan's favorite things to do is bake. She spends hours researching and compiling new recipe ideas and then experiments until she has created something that is nourishing and delicious. Until now, her recipes have been in her head and hidden from the world. Plate & Planet offers her a way to share the recipes and to help you create your own perfect recipes for your diet and lifestyle.

During the day, Jordan works as the Sustainability Coordinator at a large, public university in the Midwest. She strives to develop and implement creative events, campaigns and processes to advance the sustainability of the campus.

Part of the purpose of Plate & Planet is to share Jordan's knowledge, advice and opinions about how to live more simply and sustainably. We can all do our part to reduce consumption and create a more positive impact on the world.
