Jasmine Briones, the creator of The Sweet Simple Vegan, has dedicated her life to inspiring others to choose health. A Los Angeles-based nutrition student, Jasmine is a recipe creator and plant-based wellness blogger that works to promote nutrition, fitness, and self-love.

Jasmine struggled with an eating disorder in college and used veganism to mask that to her friends and family. After being confronted by her loved ones that she was too thin and looked unhealthy, Jasmine did some research about veganism, and she learned that she needed to change her relationship with food and with herself.

Today Jasmine is a healthy vegan and a healthy weight and wants to spread the message of what she learned: to love yourself and to nourish that same self with a plant-based diet.

How many of us keep ourselves in the dark when it comes to where our food comes from? We turn the other way because we don’t want to learn about male chicks being tossed into a grinder because they’re not “profitable”, we don’t want to see pigs suffering and immobile in their tiny birthing pens. But thanks to the work of animal activists and organizations like the Humane Society, more and more people are waking up to these practices and opting to go plant-based.

We met Lauren Pitts at the amazing Humane Society Annual Gala, where we bonded over animal welfare, celebrities and all things plant-based!

Lauren always had a passion for animals, but she also ate them. Then three years ago she decided to stop keeping herself in the dark about where her food was coming from. After watching video by Dr. Melanie Joy, she threw her lunch in the trash, and embarked on plant-based lifestyle. But she doesn’t stop at her own diet: through her work with the Humane Society, she’s getting plant based meals into schools, universities and hospitals!

Cows can live to 20 years old, but they will be slaughtered by the time they’re 3. And then we eat them. Yet we can completely survive on plant based foods. For Lauren, the easiest, cheapest, best thing to do for the environment and animals is to reduce your meat consumption. Try a Meatless Monday, or go plant-based a couple of days a week, or be vegan before 6pm – whatever works for you. Just go for it, give it a try – you might surprise yourself.


We’re also joined by surprise guest Kari Jean Glosser, a certified financial planner and adviser who’s recently joined the plant-based movement. She’s 3 months into her plant-based lifestyle and loving it!

Quintessence ("Tess") Challis began her holistic health journey in her late teens. After a lifetime of numerous health ailments (including acne, obesity, strep throat, constant illnesses, anxiety, and depression), she found that a vegan diet along with an "inner wellness regime" of meditation and visualization literally made a world of difference.

In 1994, she began sharing this knowledge through cooking classes, catering, meditation classes, and workshops. She has also been a personal chef to many clients across the United States.

In 2009, Tess published the 2nd edition of Radiant Health, Inner Wealth, a vegan cookbook and complete holistic health resource. Tess's second book, The Two-Week Wellness Solution: The Fast Track to Permanent Weight Loss and Vitality, was released in June 2010 and includes a foreword by Dr. Neal Barnard. Her latest book, Radiance 4 Life: The 4 Cornerstones of Ultimate Vitality, was just published in June 2011 and includes a foreword by Robert Cheeke.

Over the last 20 years Tess has worked as a wellness coach, a chef, a caterer, workshop leader, speaker, writer and of course, a mom.
