These ingredients are healthy and delicious!

#LunchBreakLIVE with The Veggielitas : Suzanna Urszuly and Maria Robson! These two women have launched Mahina Beautè, an extraordinary, vegan, cruelty-free, nontoxic beauty line! Today, they are making vegan meatballs from scratch!

Baking them makes them even more helpful!

Maria starts making the marinara sauce by sautéing olive oil and onions. Suzanna explains when you add salt it speeds up the cooking process. Then the Veggielitas add the tomato sauce and basil. Let it simmer and there you go, marinara sauce! Then the ladies start working on the vegan meatballs. They mix together beans, mushrooms, and walnuts for protein-packed vegan meatballs. If you prefer, you can use quinoa instead of pasta to avoid carbohydrates.
These ladies love animals of all kinds, so they have dedicated their company to helping animals. They also collaborate with a charity organization called Start Rescue, which focuses on spaying, neutering, and transporting animals in need. They also have an amazing nontoxic cruelty-free PETA-approved skincare line called Mahina Beautè. Jane has been using this skincare line personally, and thinks it is doing wonders for her skin. She recommends the “Turn On The Light Serum,” which is citrus infused so it rejuvenates your skin! This skincare line is a must try and they donate a portion of their profits to JaneUnchained News Network and The Start Rescue. Feel good and look good with the Veggielita’s recipe for homemade vegan meatballs below and their amazing Mahina Beautè skincare line!

These beautiful ladies are not just good looks, they are smart entrepreneurs and amazing vegan cooks!
