Awesome Vegans Influencer Series

Have you heard the news? There’s a new plant-based cooking show on Amazon Prime Video, called New Day New Chef. While there have been other YouTube-type shows before, this the first large-scale fully vegan cooking series. Co-Creator, Executive Producer and Host Jane Velez Mitchell explains all about the show and how it came to be. I am thrilled to be one of the Executive Producers and one of the Featured Chefs on this groundbreaking show. You haven’t seen it yet? That’s crazy! Check out New Day New Chef on Amazon Prime.

Cast of New Day New Chef

New Day New Chef is hosted by New York Times bestselling author and former CNN Headline News (HLN) host Jane Velez-Mitchell, who is well-known for advocating a vegan lifestyle. Season one features eight episodes of fun, delicious, easy vegan recipes, such as a tantalizing tower of triple-decker veggie burgers, Spicy Stuffed Italian Peppers and a Superwoman bowl of well massaged kale. Love eggs? We show you how to make eggless, zero-cholesterol, deviled eggs that will be a hit at any party!

“In this New Day of climate and health consciousness, anyone can be a New Chef, and we’ll show you how,” said Eamonn McCrystal, multi-Emmy Award winner and Executive Producer of New Day New Chef. “There’s a new appetite for plant-based food, and we’re serving recipes and information to a large, curious community of foodies and home cooks who want to put their ethics on their plate.”

Each episode features a different celebrity co-host, new chefs and a fresh panel of taste testers eager to sample delicious dishes. From Olympic medalists to movie stars, from muscular body builders to sinewy yoga masters, New Day New Chef entertains Americans while helping them reinvent their diets, boost their energy, lower their carbon footprints and transform their lives with a simple switch to plant-based foods.

“Food is what unites us,” notes one of the Executive Producers, syndicated radio host and TV Chef, Elysabeth Alfano.  “There is no better connection than the connection we experience over cooking together and sharing a meal.  If that meal is healthy for us, the planet and animals, it’s a triple win!”  Alfano cooks her recipe of Spicy Stuffed Italian Peppers for Velez-Mitchell and Episode Co-host and Latin podcast sensation, Marco Antonio Regil in episode 5.

In addition to CNN Headline News (HLN), host Velez-Mitchell’s television chops include the nationally syndicated Warner Brothers/Telepictures show Celebrity Justice, and local Emmy-winning stints at KCAL-TV in Los Angeles and WCBS-TV in New York.  Jane was also honored by Los Angeles LGBT Pride as Person of the Year 2010. She is the author of four books including the bestselling memoir, iWant: My Journey from Addiction and Overconsumption to a Simpler, Honest Life and founder and chief content editor of JaneUnChained News, a multi-platform social media news outlet.  Head over to Amazon Prime Video to watch New Day New Chef! 

In the last segment of The Elysabeth Alfano Show, Taking Back Our Health and the Health of the Planet on the Smart Talk Radio Network and WCGO, John Joseph McGowan, frontman for the punk rock Cro-Mags JM, joins Elysabeth from NYC to talk about being a punk rocker by night and triathelete by day…vegan, of course. Want to be jamming all night and running all day at 58?  The author of Meat is for Pussies, John Joseph, gives us his tips for staying in rock star shape.
