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.

Navigating the Grocery Store for Maximum Health

grocery cartIf you are confused by terms like cage-free, grass-fed and pasture-raised you are not alone. I advocate for a whole food, plant-based diet but I know that in the real world, people eat animals. Here are some guidelines and explanations of what you should buy and what to avoid at the grocery store for maximum health.

 

1)  Avoid GMOs – always purchase these products Organic:

  • Corn (any corn product such as tortilla chips) corn
  • Soy (tofu, edamame, soy milk)
  • Canola
  • Cotton (tampons)
  • Sugar beets (anything with sugar)
  • Summer squash
  • Zucchini
  • Hawaiian papaya
  • Alfalfa
  • Potatoes
  • Apples

**Corn, soy and sugar are common ingredients in other products. If the product you are buying is not labeled “Organic” you are eating GMO’s. Continue reading “Navigating the Grocery Store for Maximum Health”

Easy Plant-based Dinner

cooked flattzaWhether you are exhausted from all the back-to-school activities or just want a quick meal, this is an easy vegan dinner. This takes about five to ten minutes of prep and about 15 minutes of cook time. Best of all, it’s a healthy meal that can feed a family.

If you live in Texas, you can buy this Flatzza at H-E-B in the pizza/sauce section. It will serve as the pizza crust. There are two crusts per bag. FlattzaYou can also order it online or find something similar. Next, break out the marinara sauce. I like the Whole Foods fat-free marinara sauce or the Engine 2 brand. Top with your favorite vegetables. I used red onion, arugula, mushrooms, pepperoncinis and baked it at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Then I topped it with more fresh arugula, red pepper flakes and garlic powder. Serve with or without a salad. There you have your, “I’m too damn tired to cook,” dinner.

Monsanto Knew Roundup was Cancer Causing

roundupThis is a big deal. Emails, text messages and company reports from Monsanto itself showing what has long been suspected; there is a cover up regarding the safety of Roundup, a key component in growing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

Attorneys for Monsanto missed a deadline to submit documents that would keep these records confidential during a lawsuit. The deadline was July 31, 2017 and now the documents are public. I have read some, but I have many more to go. I just couldn’t wait to share this with you and I hope you will share it too.

According to the Organic Consumers Association website, “More than 75 documents, including intriguing text messages and discussions about payments to scientists, were posted for public viewing early Tuesday morning by attorneys who are suing Monsanto on behalf of people alleging Roundup caused them or their family members to become ill with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. The attorneys posted the documents which total more than 700 pages on the website for the law firm Baum Hedlund Aristei, Goldman…”

Read and share.
