About this video
In this episode of the Living with Sunny podcast as we dive into the incredible journey of J L Fields, a chef, an accomplished author, and a beacon of inspiration in the world of vegan cooking. Her story of chasing her dream and becoming a vegan chef at the age of 45, is a testament to the fact that it's never too late to follow your passion and create a life filled with purpose and fulfilment.
Through her own experience, J L Fields demonstrates that adopting a plant-based lifestyle doesn't have to be overwhelming. She breaks it down by focusing on the five food groups: fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. "Choosing to be a vegan can seem daunting. We have grown up eating a certain way, and just because it is a shift, it doesn't have to be hard. It's all about experimenting, learning, and having fun in the kitchen," says Fields, encouraging anyone who wants to delve into the world of veganism to let plant-based ingredients take center stage on their plates. She adds, "There's a universe of flavors out there waiting to be explored, from vibrant rainbow-colored fruits to hearty, satisfying beans."
Beyond just food, Fields also emphasizes on how cooking can be a powerful form of self-care and therapy. She explains how by infusing love and mindfulness into our meals, we nourish both our bodies and minds.
