The pair cooked up meat-less meals to an estimated audience of more than 10 million.

Coco and Lala served up three plant-based meals featuring cauliflower, including rice, a steak substitute, and low-carb pizza crust.

In addition, they utilized the leftover sauce from a cauliflower bolognese to make Sloppy Joe’s-inspired sandwiches.

The recipe is a ‘hit for the whole family’, the duo claim.

The show aired last month.

Coco and Lala thanked the audience for love and support since the episode aired.

Plant-based inspiration

What fuels is the pair is a drive to see people thrive on healthier diets that ‘won’t break the bank’.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for all Americans, and even higher in African-Americans, according to The Heart Foundation. As a result, Coco and Lala are passionate about inspiring their community to live longer and healthier lives.

It’s all about adding fresh fruits and vegetables into people’s lifestyles, they said.

Keeping Up With Coco And Lala

Coco and Lala are the hosts of Keeping Up With Coco & Lala, which is a Facebook live cooking show. On it, they test out trending plant-based recipes.

They’re dubbed the first black women to ever host a plant-based radio show, Healthin’ It Up, and often interview athletes and celebrities.

To them, Healthin’ It Up ‘means taking the necessary steps to change even if they are small steps, in order to get to the bigger picture of where you want to be’.
