Sprout New Roots

About

Hi there! We are Jenn and Kelli. We are sisters born and raised in New Orleans, LA. We have both been vegetarians for over 10 years now, but have just recently realized we needed to do more for the environment, our health, and animals. We’ve done our research and we’ve decided the answer was a plant-based diet-AKA We went Vegan!
We have basically been attached at the hip since birth, despite our 6 year age difference (Kelli was born in ’84, and Jenn in ’90). Our interests have always been similar and our love for all animals and the earth grows each day. Jenn just recently moved to Memphis, and we decided we still needed to be connected somehow – thus the birth of this blog. This blog is our meeting ground for all things we enjoy to discuss with each other;  Healthy vegan recipes, sustainable living, and whatever else we find interesting that crosses our paths! Enjoy!
