Kris Holechek-Peters

  Friday, March 21st, 2014. Hi, I’m Kris Holechek Peters and I am the author of six cookbooks. I am a vegan bak­ing fool cur­rently resid­ing in St. Paul, MN.   When I’m not bak­ing, I’m read­ing, prac­tic­ing yoga, writ­ing or spend­ing time with my fam­ily. Things I like include: peanut but­ter and choco­late, kit­ten tum­mies and British tele­vi­sion. I have been bak­ing since the first moment I was allowed into the kitchen. My great-grandmother and my aunt were my foodie role mod­els grow­ing up and I learned count­less lessons from them in the kitchen, both in rela­tion­ship to the prepa­ra­tion of food and about food as com­mu­nion. Our fam­ily life revolved around some­one put­ter­ing around in the kitchen while every­one else sat around, chat­ting, laugh­ing and sam­pling the cook’s inventions. I believe in the impor­tance of food to both fam­ily and cul­ture, which is why cre­at­ing mind-blowing vegan cui­sine, specif­i­cally bak­ing, has been so impor­tant to me. When we sit down with oth­ers and share food, a bond is formed. And if that food is lack­lus­ter, well, that’s just down­right sad. Amaz­ing vegan food is not only pos­si­ble, it’s easy! Deli­cious food trans­forms skep­tics from think­ing, “Vegan cook­ies? Yuck, what’s in those? That’s gross.” to “Heck, these are great! What else you got?” I believe that no lifestyle or food intol­er­ance should keep peo­ple from hav­ing famil­iar treats nor should it keep them from shar­ing their treats with those around them. My end goal is to make things deli­cious, from scratch, and so authen­tic that no one can tell it’s “dif­fer­ent”. How­ever, mixed in there are plenty of healthy baked goods and reg­u­lar foods to tie you over until the next spe­cial occa­sion when you bust out all of the fat and sugar.

Ellen Jaffe-Jones, author, Paleo Vegan

Ellen Jaffe-Jones, author, Paleo Vegan

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014. Ellen Jaffe Jones spent 18 years in television news as an investigative reporter and anchor and eaten a vegan diet for most of the past 32 years. She has won the highest awards in broadcasting, including two Emmys and 1st Place for the National Press Club’s Consumer Reporting Award. After leaving television, she earned high returns for her clients as a financial consultant at Smith Barney, where she was dedicated to socially responsible investing. She is a certified personal trainer and running coach. After a New York Times reporter wrote how her marathon time improved greatly after vegan coaching from Ellen, Ellen now coaches clients all over the globe in vegan and athletic pursuits via Skype and Facetime. As the only healthy person in her immediate family, Ellen’s passion is helping others avoid the pain and suffering she’s witnessed since early childhood. Her mother, aunt, and both sisters had breast cancer. After nearly dying from a colon blockage at age twenty-eight, Ellen was told by her doctors that she needed to do things differently to avoid her family’s fate. Ellen is currently 3rd in State (FL) in the 200, 400 and 1500 meters, 4th in State in the 100 meters. Finishing in the top 4 in her age group qualifies her to compete in the National Senior Games in Cleveland in July ’13. Her 100 meter times are :06 slower than NCAA girls’ personal records listed in the 2012 University of Southern California Track & Field Media Guide. Ellen often places in 5K running races or longer (52 since 2006) and ran her first marathon at age fifty-eight, in 2010. She was the 5th oldest female to finish. The publisher of Running Journal says it is unusual for anyone with Ellen’s sprint times to be able to complete a marathon. Recently Ellen placed 1st in her age group in a 5K race in Bradenton, FL, then 6th in age group the next day in a half marathon…just to show you get plenty of calories, energy, calcium, protein and anything else you need to do all this.
