Explore fun and affordable ways to prepare simple plant-based meals -- minus the mystery!

Tempeh. Nutritional yeast. Miso paste. Going plant-based has never been more complicated...or is it? Join Robin and Jules, co-authors of BEEFLESS CAKES: Easy Plant-Based Recipes featuring Beefless Cakes for a dynamic presentation on fun and affordable ways to prepare simple plant-based meals -- minus the mystery.

Jules's life forever changed in May 2016. After innocently hitting play on a documentary, Forks Over Knives, she suddenly saw the impact our every day food choices had on everything: the planet, non-human animals, and our health. She went vegan overnight and never looked back. In fact, this change was so transformative that she eventually quit her corporate job, moved across the country with nothing but her car and her dog, and put her money where her mouth was by starting Plant-Based Point.

Along with a masters in humane education, Jules holds a BA in creative writing from The New School and has been project management professional (PMP) certified since 2011. When she's not busy telling her dog how cute he is, she's usually scouting new vegan products (she considers her taste-testing videos a public service), trail running, blogging, or learning French. (Je suis très mauvais.)

Early in life, Robin made the decision to not eat meat. As she experienced more and more, got married, and had children, she transitioned to eating a plant-based/vegan diet and raising her children the same way. While ironing out her food and health choices, Robin worked professionally in the family services field, helping families during end-of-life care and support.

What began as a hobby -cooking and talking about healthy foods- evolved into a deep passion to educate families on the importance (and more importantly, the fun!) of eating plant-based/vegan foods.

Along with a masters in humane education, Robin also holds an MA in thanatology, a BS in psychology, a BS in gerontology, and wait there’s more – a certificate in plant-based nutrition through eCornell. When she's not in the kitchen or out running trails, you'll find her with her two sons and husband.
