Santa Monica, Ca, December 21, 2022, 1:45 p.m. PST
On this episode of ‘Plant-Based in the Burbs’ Paige and Sherri are joined by the founders of a magical product called SHROOMEATS, which has the potential to change the world. Animal meat is known to be bad for the environment, bad for our health, and certainly bad for animals that become the meat. So why not use mushrooms instead? SHROOMEATS has figured out how to turn mushrooms into the perfect texture and flavor to replace meat, and with only 6 ingredients! They currently come in three varieties… patties, shreds, and of course, meatballs. Watch the video below to learn more about this amazing product and see how 4 women can make magic in the kitchen while simultaneously changing the world by taking meat off their plates. Are you up for the challenge?
The Hosts of Plant-Based in the Burbs
Sherri Johnson is an entrepreneur, personal trainer, mother, wife, and lifelong lover of cooking. As a child, she watched her grandmother make magic in the kitchen, which solidified a loving and personal connection to food. Eventually, Sherri discovered a passion for healthy living and veganism. She learned that plant-based eating was not only conducive to a healthy mind and body, but also a compassionate approach to healing the planet and caring for its animals. Through Plant-Based in the Burbs on UnchainedTV, Sherri shares her techniques for creating “veganized” versions of your favorite meals. With her friendly approach and infectious charm, she demonstrates that veganism is not only healthy but easily accessible to everyone. Through this platform, Sherri hopes to encourage others to explore the lifestyle that has completely changed her for the better. Sherri is deeply passionate about helping others step into the highest version of themselves. By sharing her expertise as a personal trainer and advocate for veganism, she helps clients and viewers create the body and lifestyle of their dreams. In addition to physical fitness and delicious food, Sheri plans on launching an activewear brand called W29 that promises to serve as a force to uplift and inspire women.
Celebrating being vegan for 7 years, Paige Parsons Roache 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 environmental impact of eating meat and dairy, chose to go vegan “for the environment.” Soon after, she attended her first pig vigil with LA Animal Save/Animal Save Movement. Once she looked those baby pigs in the eyes, she knew why her daughter had gone vegan. Cooking as a guest chef on LunchBreakLIVE after meeting Jane Velez-Mitchell at VegFestLA, and inspired by Jane’s bold courage, Paige became a Contributor for UnChainedTV. Reporting on all the latest animal rights news. She also became the Senior Booker for UnChainedTV. Now, the Communications Director of UnchainedTV’s streaming network, and co-producer/co-host of the Plant-Based In the ‘Burbs show, Paige brings inspiration, humor, and humbleness to the kitchen, showing simple swap-outs and easy recipes to inspire people to bring more plants to their plates.
