And then there is a cheezy pasta recipe also packed into this episode, because who doesn’t love CHEESE! All this goodness is 100% vegan and totally delicious. Check it out.
Sherri is an Entrepreneur, Certified Personal and Pilates Trainer, wife, mother to two creative talented young men and has been vegan for four and 1/2 years. She started W29 Activewear 5 years ago bringing high-quality athletic wear to market to inspire and motivate people to move their bodies.
Celebrating being vegan for 4.5 years now, Paige has been committed to bringing ECO-VEGANISM to the forefront of every interaction: Environmentally conscious vegan living. After watching the documentary COWSPIRACY, she went vegan on the spot. Her daughter Katelyn, 13 at the time, chose veganism for the animals 6 months earlier. Paige, on the other hand, after being shocked by the amount of water it takes to put a hamburger on a plate and the fact that animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation and climate change, chose to go vegan “for the environment.” Soon after, she attended her first pig vigil with LA Animal Save/Save Movement. Once she looked at those baby pigs in the eyes, she knew why her daughter had gone vegan.
Paige became a Contributor for JaneUnChained News after cooking as a guest chef on #LunchBreakLIVE. She met Jane Velez-Mitchell at VegFestLA and then again at Moby’s Circle V Festival. Inspired by Jane’s bold courage, Paige now reports for JNN on all the latest animal rights events, including The Save Movement’s pig/chicken/cow vigils, various PETA protests, VegFests, book launches, Anonymous for the Voiceless’ Cube of Truths and vegan conferences.
Paige is now also the Booker for #LunchBreakLIVE on the JaneUnChained News Network.
