Our friend The Superfood Goddess joins us again on #LunchbreakLIVE showing us how to make a smoothie bowl filled with antioxidants to help keep our immune systems up to par! This Acai Smoothie Bowl has so many delicious toppings with disease fighting antioxidants which are so important during this time of the Coronavirus Pandemic. It is important to do whatever we can to help keep our immune systems up and running by eating healthy and getting in those antioxidants and whole-food plant-based foods.
Stephanie, who goes by The Superfood Goddess, went vegan for health reasons. Thirteen years ago, She went Vegan for her brother, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. She searched to find a solution and read that eating Whole Foods, superfoods, ditching meat & dairy, and eating little to no processed sugar, could help one’s mental health. After a Three-month vegan challenge with her brother and mom, she felt better than ever, more energy, more vibrant, and she realized some of her chronic sickness and ailments went away. She even was able to stop taking her depression and anxiety medication after a couple of years being vegan (of course, ALWAYS with a doctor helping her wean off the meds).
Through healing herself, she realized she could help others heal themselves through food and nutrition. From her studies and attending physician conferences where doctors speak on plant-based Healthcare, she realized that one could stop, slow, or reverse heart disease, diabetes, brain fog, cancer, and so much more. She holds 3 certifications in holistic nutrition and integrative health coaching. She’s off to take her masters in Clinical Nutrition this April! She is a yogini and got certified to teach in 2014. She knows her purpose in life is to help others and she is passionate about spreading the vegan message.
Above all, Stephanie remembers how hard it was at first to navigate through what to eat. She doesn’t want the idea of trying a new healthy lifestyle to stop anyone from succeeding, which is why she got certified to coach. You can contact her for a free health consultation on many subjects ranging from weight loss, dis-ease, mental health, and so much more. She presents and teaches cooking classes in small gatherings, at Veg Fests, and festivals. Connect with her, she’s super open, positive, and full of GLOW to share. Stephanie’s Social Media Links:
