Meet Coco & Lala, the First Black Women to Ever Host a Vegan and Plant-Based Radio Show

Coco & Lala

Minneapolis, MN — Coco & Lala – one vegetarian, one vegan – are the on-air radio personalities of the hottest vegan, vegetarian and plant-based radio show in the country called “Healthin’ It Up™ with Coco & Lala” on 89.9 KMOJ HD2 The Ice (Wednesdays at 4 p.m. CST). On the show, which can be streamed nationwide, they educate and entertain while shedding a light on vegan and vegetarian eating and living. They have interviewed many celebrities including: John Salley, Chili from TLC, Headkrack, Griff, Izeah Bowman, and Roger Mooking among others.

Coco & Lala are also the creators and hosts of the amazing Facebook Live cooking show, Keeping Up with Coco and Lala (Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. CST). On this show they test out trending vegan and vegetarian recipes, try different products, and offer honest reviews. They regularly crack each other up while proving that you can incorporate plant-based foods into your diet without much hassle. They are always bringing their fun, energy, addicting personalities and education to every one of their platforms. Coco & Lala are passionate about seeing that communities thrive by eating healthier, filling, flavorful food that won’t break the bank.

What makes Coco & Lala so entertaining is their lively personalities and their audience interactions. While recording live via Facebook, the pair regularly interacts with viewers who post back and forth in the comment section of the livestream. With heart disease being a leading cause of death in the African American community, Coco & Lala lead the healthy eating charge with passion, information, and laughter. For them it’s not about the label of being vegan or vegetarian but it’s about adding fresh fruits and vegetables into people’s lifestyles.

They want people to live longer, healthier lives so they frequently offer free admission into their cooking demos so that people don’t have a reason why they cannot learn how to cook healthier for their households. Coco & Lala coined the phrase “Healthin’ It Up!™”, which to them means taking the necessary steps towards change – even if they are small steps – in order to get to the bigger picture of where you want to be in relation to your pursuit of better health. Coco & Lala say that you can healthin’ up your mind, healthin’ up your community, healthin’ up your spirit or healthin’ up your lifestyle. Anything that needs improvement – you can healthin’ it up!™

The popular duo have also signed a development deal to appear on television.
