I met Holly, the creator of Yoga is Vegan, on Clubhouse recently. She hosts a super cool room every Saturday at noon ET called yoga is vegan. It was in her room that we connected and she found out that yoga is part of my story that led me back to a plant based diet.
I was super excited when she asked if I would be on her podcast and share my story. It dropped this week and I'd love for you to take a listen.
Here are links to some of the things we talk about:
I'd love to hear your feedback!
Dr. Madeline Hardacre accomplished a dream: she ran an ultramarathon. I was so amazed with this feat that I had to get her on a zoom call to discuss her mindset and how she accomplished something that is sooooo mentally and physically challenging.
Dr. Madeline joyfully shares her wisdom and grit on how she realized her dream. She had several road blocks but she did not let them hold her back. Nine years in the making, she ran and completed her first ultramarathon (that's FIFTY MILES) on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
We love her positive attitude and outlook on life. We love her genuine care for her patients and anyone she comes in contact with. And we love that she encourages you to dream bigger, become aware of your doubts and use them to your advantage as a sign for growth, and lean into discomfort because the joy of accomplishment will soon follow.
We are big fans of Dr. Madeline. We encourage you to follow her on instagram and we highly recommend...

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!
