John went vegan nine years ago on a bet from his mom and found his migraines disappeared as did a little extra weight. When he’s not at work you can find him in the kitchen whipping up original-recipe plant-based desserts. Chocolate Crème Pies, anyone?

Ryan is an all-over vegan foodie: he spends his days creating and writing about new recipes for a vegan recipe blog, No Eggs or Ham. When he’s not in the kitchen he’s probably playing drums, freelance modeling around LA, or trying other cooks’ vegan creations! He’s always looking to add value to people’s lives through extraordinary flavors, new adventures, and awareness of different perspectives.
