About Jertie’s Kitchen
Jertie Abergas and her sister Jaclyn have always believed great-tasting nutritious food should be accessible to anyone and everyone.  And more than that, everyone should be able to make it easily without burning a hole in your pocket.  Eating a plantbased diet should not be any different.  Neither should it be complicated, intimidating and boring!
A lot of people hesitate to commit to a plantbased diet because they believe it to be difficult and expensive to create.  Me and my sister Jaq want to debunk that misconception!  It can be expensive, especially if you always go for the high-end option but most of the time it’s as affordable as it can get.  In The Green Guide to Eating Right workshop series we’ll show you how affordable plant-based dishes can easily be prepared even by those who’ve never stepped into a kitchen before.  And the great thing about this workshop, you don’t need lots of fancy equipment.  You just need a toaster, a rice cooker or a pan with a stove.
When my sister Jaq became vegan, she pressured me to create vegan pastries she can eat.  I felt inspired and added it to my line-up of home-baked goodies.  Then, almost at the same time I found out I was glutenintolerant and tweaked my products to include glutenfree and vegan items
Since then, me and Jaq have devoted ourselves to sharing their plant-based and gluten-free lifestyle with the people we meet and those interested.  We strongly believe people need to start taking charge of their health and not wait until it’s too late.
Aside from creating greattasting food, we teach health and cooking workshops and offer health coaching.  We know how difficult it is to transition and want to support other people in their own journey towards health.
