Dr. Madeline just completed an ultra marathon (that's 50 MILES!!). It took her 9 years to realize this dream. She will be sharing her a-ha moments and sharing some of her life's lessons. Bring your questions!
Wishing you a blessed Memorial Day Weekend!

A paper was recently published in BMJ Gut about blue poo and the impact of gut transit time on the gut microbiome.
In the paper the Zoe team, in collaboration with leading scientists, gave blue muffins (they're more like cupcakes!) to thousands of people and they discovered that gut transit time - the time it takes for food to travel through your GI tract - can say a lot about a person's gut microbiome.
The best part? You can take the #bluepoopchallenge too!
You can buy the blue muffins here. Or you can make the blue muffins yourself:
1 3/4 cups plain, all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp Royal blue food dye
Dr. G has an incredible outlook on life. You have to listen to her story and hear how vibrant she is and to hear how she changes her struggles to her super powers. You will also have to listen to how she learned about the importance of nutrition in treating disease - hint: it wasn't from medical school.
We hope this conversation resonates with you and we want you to know it's never too late to health up your lifestyle. We are here for you. And Dr. G is here for you.

Today is the official day dedicated to celebrating our Mother(s). We want to wish all of our Plant Chic Moms an extra special Mother's Day this year and we hope you are able to be together.
So much has transpired since we were on lockdown last year and it's nice to be getting back to some sense of "normal". [I'm not even sure what that means...]
We want to wish our small team a super fabulous Mother's Day. Without our Plant Chics Tribe moderator, Tiffany Wilkerson, and our Influencer Relations, Monique Gutierrez, we wouldn't be where we are today.
Tiffany and her beautiful children.
To those of you who no longer have your Mother, we are sending virtual hugs. And to those of you who are motherly figures, we see you too!
We honor you, we love you, and we wish you a magical day! We look forward to the day we can all be together and give each other ginormous hugs!
Happy Mother's Day, Plant Chics!

Lettuce ask you — what does it mean to thrive?
What defines a thriving life?
Does it mean you have to be successful in your career? Is “having it all figured out” a good sign of a thriving life? Do you need to be happy all the time to thrive?
Well, there isn’t an exact answer to those questions.
In general, a thriving life involves a sense of development. That involves acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses and knowing how to manage yourself no matter what situation you're in.
You don't have to be a successful entrepreneur.
You don't need large amounts of money or resources.
You don't have to figure it all out.
To thrive is a continuous process — that of which needs regular ‘sharpening of the saw’. It needs commitment (and a little bit of guidance and self-education)
The THR5 Formula™ Virtual Summit aims to help individuals become a better version of themselves and thrive in different aspects of...

Happy Earth Day!
In honor of #earthday I am sharing a zero-waste food recipe with you.
But first, let’s talk food waste.
Food waste is a big problem. In the US, 63 million tons of food are wasted every year. Food waste accounts for 21 % of all fresh water in the US and takes up 21% of the landfill. It releases a methane gas that is 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide and it exhausts our natural resources like water, gas, energy, land, labor, and fertilizers to produce it. We need to be more conscious of what food we buy and how we use it before it goes bad.
I had some carrots that were about to go bad, and I was not feeling like eating them with hummus. I wanted something sweet and then I remembered my carrot cake energy bites! What better way to celebrate Mother Earth Day than with my carrots that were about to go bad and my NutraMilk machine.
I love partnering up with companies that are committed to supporting a sustainable lifestyle. My NutraMilk machine is a zero...
