WHO WANTS SOME OCEAN FRIENDLY VEGAN FISH?

We have some fabulous fish-less vegan fish options for you on today’s #LunchBreakLIVE, inspired by the film  “SEASPIRACY”. The hosts of “Plant-Based In the ‘Burbs” Sherri Johnson and Paige Parsons Roache give us two of their go-to plant-based fish dish recipes, and they are super tasty, totally cruelty-free, and safe for our oceans! You can even print out the recipes below!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VEGAN FISH?

There are plenty of vegan fish options available now that take very little effort to make, but taste fantastic.  Paige chose to make us her un-toona salad, and Sherri made a fish filet with some grits.  Both delicious choices, both super simple.  After watching Seaspiracy, it is clear that we need to stop overfishing and destroying our oceans and their inhabitants, or we will never survive as humans.  So there is no better time than now to try out some plant-based fish options.

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 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. Sherri says, “Being able to cause no harm to animals has been so liberating and rewarding.” Mother of two grown men, she loves cooking for her family and friends, plus loves the challenge of trying new recipes for them as well. She’s Co-host and Co-Producer of “Plant-Based In the ‘Burbs” a weekly show bringing all vegans and pre-vegans into the kitchen, normalizing veganism and showing the ease and fun of cooking!

“MAKE AMERICA GREEN AGAIN” is Paige’s favorite saying. Her daughter went vegan at age 13 and Paige joined her 6 months later, after watching the documentary Cowspiracy. She is committed to bringing environmentally conscious vegan living to the forefront and reports on animal rights stories, including The Save Movement’s vigils, various PETA protests, VegFests, AV Cube of Truths, vegan conferences, and more.
