Have a craving for some Italian meatballs? Well, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you with this vegan Meatless Marinara, topped with vegan cheese and dripping with taste.
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.
In addition, Paige is the Booker for the #LunchBreakLIVE Show, #LIVETALK with Jane Velez-Mitchell, Voice America’s “Influencers” Show and ” The Laws That Matter” with super-lawyer Carissa Kranz, plus co-hosts of the “Plant Based In the ‘Burbs” show. Along with being one of the network’s Producers, she has cooked for us many times over the 3 years with the network. Check out one of my favorite shows where Paige makes Jackfruit sliders. You can find that HERE.
Now let’s get back to the food and see what kind of magic Paige created in the kitchen for this episode of #LunchBreakLIVE.
