Paige Putnam has been plant-based for about 10 years. She’s a high school student at George Washington University Online High School, which allows her the flexibility to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. She started moving away from the "kid's menu" and cooking plant-based recipes when she was eight years old. She has always loved cooking and found out that she had a knack for converting standard recipes into plant-based recipes. She graduated from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate program when she was 10 years old, becoming the youngest person to earn this certificate. With the knowledge she gained in this course, she recently started a business, Plant-Based Paige, and wrote a cookbook called Plant-Based Snacks, Apps, & Desserts
, which is in the final stages of editing for publication. Food is universal, so her best advice is to make it healthy and fun!
