Welcome to One Part Plant – your very own inspiration station for clean eating and a happy head. On the site, you’ll find new recipes, fun how-tos, and real-life advice from new inspirational friends. On the street, we’re partnered up with some of the best restaurants and hotels in the country, which means you’ll be seeing more plant-based dishes popping up on menus.

Check out The Restaurants page to see our partners, take a look at The Master List for some of our other veg favorites, and give us a shout if you’ve got someplace in mind that could use a little plant.



Designer and plant-vangelist Jessica Murnane hasn’t always been the happy-healthy her. Not too long ago, she wasn’t feeling so hot. At that time, her doctors gave her two options – crazy surgery or even crazier drugs. But just when she was about to go with one of those crazy options, a good friend swooped in with a third  – a plant-based diet. A lover of all things cheese-filled and sugary sweet, Jessica was reluctant to try this “wacky” new diet. But desperate for another option, she gave it a whirl. And two months later she was pain-free, a little lighter, and lots (and lots) happier.

Since then, she’s been learning as much as she can about how good food can change lives. In 2012, she received a certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation. And after years of being scared of the kitchen, even started cooking. She knows first-hand that change isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to what’s on your plate. But she’s also seen how that kind of change can make some pretty awesome things happen.

In addition to One Part Plant, Jessica is the creator of So, How Was Your Day? and the owner of the stationery brand Suitor. Her work has appeared in publications such as House Beautiful, Oprah Magazine, and Real Simple. She’s currently a contributing editor at Country Living Magazine.


For some, it’s digestive problems or low energy. For others, cramps from hell or simply feeling “off.” There are times when you simply need a little help getting your sparkle back. From inspiring corporate group sessions and shopping trips to one-on-one lifestyle coaching, Jessica is available for a range of wellness and coaching sessions. With an approach that is kind and judgment-free, she works hard to ensure that you’re armed with the best information possible – so you can maintain your new plan in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
