Do You Want to Come to My House?

Are you or someone you love looking to lower your cholesterol, get off high blood pressure meds, or reverse diseases such as autoimmune, heart disease or type 2 diabetes? I reversed my heart disease by following a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle and now I want to show you how easy it is to be healthy.

This way of eating reverses most disease states because it eliminates inflammation, the root cause of disease. I am very excited to offer a class through Well Elephant that will teach you how to ACE plant-based eating on March 14th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 P.M. It will take place in my home in Austin. ACE stands for AMEND the recipe, COOK without oil and EAT out. If you can master those things, you can be a plant-based pro. You’ll also leave the class with meals and those “weird” ingredients like nutritional yeast.

I’m offering the class to the public $199 but because you are a loyal friend and subscriber, I am offering the class to you for only $99! There are 8 spots in total and only 6 spots are left! This is an incredible offer because you’re going to get about $50 worth of food and the class. Email me at lauren@wellelephant.com and mention that you’re a subscriber to reserve your discounted spot and fill out the survey. I want to make sure we cook things that you will love! Feel free to reach out with questions. Sending you healing and healthy vibes.

It’s Been a While, Friend!

I hope you are doing well! As I said in my very last post, I have been working on my passion project, teaching people how to reverse disease by eating a whole-food, plant-based diet. I reversed my own heart disease by following this way of eating. I have dropped my cholesterol over 110 points, changed the shape of my blood platelets from hard and small to big and round; a sign of reversal and I’ve dropped 20 pounds, all without medication. If you haven’t done so already, please follow me at https://www.wellelephant.com/ a pop-up subscription will come up if you stay on the page for about ten seconds.

I have been doing behind the scenes work for the past months; re-doing my website (almost finished!), creating an online course curriculum (getting there)  as well as an in person course (finished!). I am going to send you a special offer to my In Person class tomorrow. Be on the lookout because my friends who have subscribed to Well Elephant and/or My Non-Toxic Life are going to be in for a huge gift tomorrow. I appreciate you and I am thinking of you still and always.

How to Get the Most Nutrients

soupWhat is the best way to get the most nutrients? Recently a follower asked me this question on behalf of his friend who is going through chemotherapy. She is also diabetic. He contacted me because his friend’s doctor told her to drink Glucerna. He remembered reading on my blog that it is full of GMOs, contains fructose which has been shown to cause insulin resistance and weight gain. Moreover, only 2% of the ingredients are vitamins and minerals, which is supposed to be the point of the nutritional drink. I recommended that she juice. Unfortunately, she does not have a juicer or blender and cannot purchase one at this time. What to do?

If you are trying to give nutrients to someone who may not be able to eat, here are two good nutritional drink options. They are pricey compared to Glucerna or Ensure, but they have actual nutrients and raw food in them. You can mix these with water, no blender needed. They run about $30 for 30 servings.

You can find these products at grocery stores, Whole Foods, or the Vitacost or Amazon websites. Continue reading “How to Get the Most Nutrients”
