LET’S MAKE A YUMMY VEGAN OMELET
What the EGG? Vegan EGG that is! Jump in the #LunchBreakLIVE kitchen for a homemade vegan omelet, made with a specialty egg mix created with mung beans and spices, plus Sheese vegan cheese and mushrooms. Today’s guest chef Susan Pratt, creator of Susan Cooks Vegan, a mom, and a self-made businesswoman works her magic in the kitchen for us. She takes the fear out of new recipes and ingredients. Let’s find out how…
TEACHING ALL THINGS PLANT-BASED
Susan is a self-made businesswoman set on teaching people the health benefits and joy that comes from vegan/plant-based nutrition and cooking. Her approachable style resonates with home cooks, taking the fear out of new recipes and ingredients. Susan believes that sharing her love of plant-based food can inspire people to consider changes in their own life, benefiting their family’s health, slowing climate change, and ending animal cruelty.
Susan’s greatest joy is cooking. Her extensive travels have inspired her recipes, as has her home in North Vancouver, B.C. Canada, where she has her own garden and forages in the nearby forest for ingredients. Her philosophy is that we are all connected. Her deep love of animals and her daughter, Carrington, reminds her of this interconnectedness every day. Carrington is the best inspiration for her plant-based life. Susan and her husband have raised their daughter vegan from birth, and she is a thriving 3-year-old.
