By Emily Gladders


Ritual teamed up with Matthew Kenny for a plant-based dining experience that represents some of the ingredients found in Essential for Women.
We paired with Kenney because his cuisine and methods align perfectly with our mission: to fuel the body with the cleanest ingredients we can find, no matter what. All plant-based & no B.S. Because we believe that’s how it should be.
Matthew Kenney & team shared the recipes with us so that you can get Essential with your own meals at home. Here is the delicious Hummus and Crackers recipe, inspired by Boron
