About - Peanut Butter and Jilly

About Jill

I’m your author and recipe creator, Jillian Glenn ! My friends and family call me Jill. I live in Raleigh, North Carolina, with my adorable puppy, Coco! I’m sweet and sassy and love to laugh. I am a follower of Christ and believe that loving and serving others is the most important part life. I was born in North Carolina but have lived in Atlanta, Boston, and Fort Lauderdale. Basically, I’m always on the go! My hobbies include: exercise, travel, crocheting & crafting, recipe creating, painting, writing, reading, and shopping. Is shopping a hobby? Is butter a carb?

Easy & Fun Recipes

When I first started following a plant-based diet, I would search for vegan recipes online. The problem I ran into was that I had never heard of many of the ingredients and wasn’t sure where to buy them! Many of the recipes were long and time consuming. So, I started coming up with my own recipes. I tried to make them simple, affordable, and use “normal” ingredients like oatmeal and almond milk!

I loved showing my family and friends that gluten-free or vegan doesn’t mean complicated or tasteless. That’s how Peanut Butter and Jilly was created! My recipes are family-friendly, simple, yummy! My own family’s picky palate and my Southern roots inspire my comfort food recipes. And, I’ve got a serious sweet tooth so there’s never a shortage of baked goods.

My Diet

I am vegetarian, dairy-free, and often gluten-free. I follow the 80:20 rule. Which means, 80% of my diet is full of fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, and protein. 20% consists of a sweet or savory vegan treat! Life is short… so, I never skip dessert! I count my calories daily and sometimes do intermittent fasting. I believe that some foods are worth saving for (like using less dressing on my salad to reduce calories), and some are worth splurging over (noshing into one of my famous vegan cinnamon rolls). Life is all about balance!
