Founders Julie Van Dam and Stephen Janke are passionate about Vegan Cheese. After years working in upscale fine dining restaurants such as LA's Patina, San Francisco's Aqua and The Waterfront, and later, running a successful catering company, Julie and Stephen underwent a life-changing event; in 2014, Julie was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colo-rectal Cancer! After two surgeries and eight months of chemotherapy, Julie knew they needed to make a change, which is when the their transition to veganism began!

In this episode, we talk all about the couples' experience, strength and hope and how veganism ties into their story!

Also, shout out to their super cool "Kid", Carson! (Sorry, Carson, I know you're not a kid anymore!)

117: Eco-Veganism

117: Eco-Veganism

Paige Parsons-Roache aka "Vegan Rama Mama" shows up as a surprise-visit guest after her and I filmed Jane-Velez Mitchell's Lunch Break Live at Mission Square Market. This episode was also recorded on FaceBook LIVE (10/31) and contains some interaction with the audience.

Paige is one of the few people I've talked to that went vegan for the environment, which leads to our topic of "eco-veganism"; the concept of not only appreciating and respecting animal life, but also the plant kingdom and the environment. We talk composting, recycling, minimalism and so much more!

Find Paige on Wednesday's Lunch Break LIVE show as she pops up all over town on Jane-Velez Mitchell's FaceBook and Instagram!
