Vegan Pulled Pork Love!
Today’s show features a Vegan pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw by Chelsea V Davis & Jake Vaage. Former hunter turned animal rights activist Jake Vaage along with the talented athlete and health expert Chelsea V Davis take us for a ride in their kitchen. Chelsea is also the founder of Veggies Do It Better, Vegan Night Market Portland, and #VeganTipsTuesday and a co-founder of Animal Rights Collective Portland, and regularly hosts “Couples Cookn’’ on the JaneUnChained News Network. Let’s watch them show us how it’s done.
Who Is This Magnificant Vegan Pulled Pork Duo?
Longtime vegan, community organizer, and entrepreneur, Chelsea V Davis aka Veggies Do It Better loves how vegan advocacy is a beautiful way of incorporating all the issues she is passionate about… animal rights, health, sustainability, social and food justice, and compassion. Over the last 10 years, Chelsea has organized over 100 vegan events ranging from protests to marches, VegFests to international conferences, activist panels to fundraisers and that’s just the beginning! Chelsea’s focus on collaboration and community building brought her to launching the new Animal Rights Collective Portland (ARCPDX), Virtual Vegan Night Market Portland, and #VeganTipsTuesday. Her passion for nutrition and fitness also led her to start a health and wellness business with Jake last summer. They love helping people live healthier lives through nutrition, kindness, and non-toxic earth-friendly products. They donate a large portion of their profits to animal and social justice charities through ChelseaVDavis.Arbonne.com and the rest funds their amazing activism and community organizing. Contact Chelsea V Davis with any questions.
Growing up, hunting, fishing, and eating animals was in the framework of Jake’s family. Then in late 2015, he met Chelsea! At the beginning of 2016, Jake did a 22-day vegan challenge that changed his life. He lost 7 pounds, his skin cleared up, and he started sleeping more efficiently. Following the challenge, he stopped eating factory-farmed animals and not too long after that, he stopped hunting and fishing and became a passionate vegan advocate, animal rights activist, and athlete. Shows how anyone has the power to change! In recent years, Jake has been getting nerdier about proper nutrition and peak performance leading him and Chelsea to start a health and wellness business.
