Live Q&A with Experts


I’m loving this way of eating – the high amount of fiber has done wonders for my digestion (3 poops a day! What?!!)” 

I’m super grateful to have kicked my sugar cravings and it’s been wonderful to get back to a daily green smoothie and sprouting and growing micro greens. Finding out eating raw is a lot easier than I expected. I thought it would be hard to make recipes unfamiliar and I have found a groove with energy balls and sauces. But the best part, I have become more present in my life, finding meaningful moments when eating and I have rested more in the last three weeks than I have the last three years. I am using my journal more and connecting more in present moments.

I feel more positive over the last 21 days and feel healthier and am so thankful for the opportunity to participate in this challenge!”

I love how the challenge incorporates everything to make my belly happy. There is a good balance of food with your use of your pyramid with the challenge and my body can tell (mainly my poop is giving it away, lol!) When I started eating WFPB, I thought I needed to always eat to make up for the heavy food I wasn't eating. But now that I have been doing intermittent fasting again, my body feels great and I have more energy! This challenge has reminded me to chew slowly and breathe before eating. I loved the advice to sit down to eat because quite often I am multi-tasking while eating so now I am taking time to sit and enjoy my food.
Jenn Roach
Calgary, AB, Canada

I was so thrilled to receive your check-in emails & videos. You are so wonderfully caring and inspirational!

In terms of maintaining the healthy gut regimen and reverting to old ways, I think I have shifted to a 60/40 ratio of good practices and former habits. My husband has told me that since eating some of my vegan foods, and also having a probiotic and green smoothie every day plus earlier bedtimes, his hairdresser said she noticed his hair is growing more fully! We were both very happy to hear that. Favourite recipes are the butternut squash soup, cashew sour cream, overnight oats, shiitake pho, Kale Caesar salad, Broccoli & Apple salad, and I am completely addicted to Kimchi, Sauerkraut and Kombucha. Those are major players in my daily diet. I’m also keeping up on daily yoga and chasing my kids around helps me stay active!"
