Welcome to the Uncomplicated Palate!

I am Jerainne, a lover of food and life! I created the uncomplicated palate to document my transition and journey from eating meat to more fruits and vegetables! I never thought I would be at this place but I am and I’m loving it!

My love of cooking all started back in Jamaica, where I grew up. At the age of 9, my parents gave me free range in the kitchen to experiment and explore. They watched my love of cooking explode! Their support and confidence landed me the biggest cooking responsibility at 14 years old, planning and preparing Sunday meals for my family. This was a big deal, as meals on Sundays were the most important of the week! It was a time allotted for kinship. All meals, especially dinner, served as the central hub for family and love!
