Between mixn’ tunes and making meals, these two vegan entrepreneurs join us for #LunchBreakLIVE . Jezzy and Mike, @PlantbasedAmor, created their “Kale ‘Em With Kindness” dish, a tasty combination of spices, tofu, kale, mushrooms and more. Need a Dj? Check out DJ Mike Sincere!
Here is a little bit more info about Jezzy and Mike:
“Our love for cruelty-free food and passion for creativity sparked @plantbasedamor. As entrepreneurs of being a DJ and owning our photo booth company @thereupbooth, our lifestyle is extremely busy and can take a toll on our health. The journey started when we both decided not a single piece of food that had been treated with violence would enter our bodies! Yes, we went Vegan on the same day! Now, we are constantly cooking new recipes that are wholesome, and trying new spots around LA that spark inspiration. Not only did our pallet for food change, but our bodies also responded by healing itself through holistic foods. Launching our blog is our first step towards sharing this optimistic lifestyle. Stay tuned for more yummy goodness to come!”
