About Paige Parsons Roache

Celebrating being vegan for 7 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, choose 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 or to have a lick of icecream, plus learning that animal agriculture is a 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/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 JaneUnchained News. Reporting on all the latest animal rights’ aspects, including The Save Movement’s pig/chicken/cow vigils, various PETA protests, VegFests, book launches, Cube of Truths and vegan conferences, Paige became the Booker for LunchBreakLIVE, a daily cooking show, and Senior Booker for the JaneUnChained News Network. Now the Communications Director of the UnchainedTV 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 on their plates.
