A Dream Born From Adversity

Misty’s journey toward a plant-based lifestyle began at a young age. When she was just nine years old, her mother was diagnosed with brain cancer and given a grim prognosis. Determined to fight against the odds, Misty’s mother decided to change her eating habits. By embracing a clean and healthy diet, she not only survived but thrived for another nine-and-a-half years.

Witnessing her mother’s transformation ignited a lifelong passion for healthy eating in Misty. She believes that every setback in life can lead to something positive. Misty learned how to prioritize self-care and find solace in her faith, even in the face of adversity.

From Hot Dogs to Health Food

Last January, Misty decided to test her health food creations at her family’s hot dog stand, Monroe’s Original. To her surprise, the health-focused items became a hit. People who craved nutritious meals were flocking to a hot dog stand of all places. Inspired by the positive feedback, Misty knew she had to take the next step and open her very own plant-based restaurant.

The Power of Faith

Despite a few failed attempts at securing the perfect location downtown, Misty never lost faith. She turned to prayer, asking for guidance and clarity. And as fate would have it, the building she had been eyeing all along became available. It was a sign she couldn’t ignore. With the support of her loving husband, Misty seized the opportunity and embarked on this exciting new chapter.

Since opening her doors, Misty has been overwhelmed by the incredible support and positive feedback from the community. Those who once doubted that Monroe would embrace plant-based cuisine have been proven wrong. Misty’s Plant Based Foods has found a niche, satisfying the demand for good, healthy food in Monroe.
