119: Jule's Vegan Foods

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!)
