Let’s Meet Our Guest Chefs…

Celebrating being vegan for 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, 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.  After meeting Jane Velez-Mitchell at VegFestLA, and inspired by Jane’s bold courage, Paige became a Contributor for JaneUnChained News. She Reports on many of the latest animal rights stories and she is also the Producer and Booker for #LunchBreakLIVE on the JanUnChained News Network.   She speaks globally on behalf of JaneUnChained News Network and The Los Angeles Fur Animal Save Movement. Paige is also Co-host/Co-Producer of “Plant-Based In the ‘Burbs”.

Sherri started her career in the fashion and beauty industry. For the last 16 years, she’s been a certified personal trainer/ Pilates instructor. “Fitness is apart of me. It is my passion to inspire women to see their inner and as well as their physical strengths. It’s very rewarding.”  During her fitness journey, Sherri created the company W29 Activewear Brand, for women and men. She’s been living a plant-based lifestyle for 4.5 years, which started her on another phase in her life. She loves veganizing her favorite recipes and learning a different way of preparing her childhood favorites into plant-based meals. “Being able to cause no harm to living creatures has been so liberating and rewarding.” Being a mother of two grown men, Sherri is constantly creating delicious meals for her whole family. Married 30 years, a model, former hairstylist, vegan foodie, and co-host of the show “Plant-Based In the ‘Burbs “ with Paige Parsons Roache on JaneUnChained News Network.

Time For The Vegan Burger Recipes We Have Been Waiting For…

Paige and Sherri took two different approaches to their vegan burger recipes.  Sherri made hers from scratch, while Paige used pre-made packaged plant-based burger patties from Sprouts Market, and added all her favorite fixins’.  Either way works, both are delicious.  Sherri made her patties out of black beans and a load of incredible spices.  Her burger would likely be considered “healthier” than Paige’s store-bought vegan burger, however, both are far healthier than an actual animal meat burger!  And frankly, way tastier too!
