Hi grass muncher,
Today I have a super informative chat for you that I had with Jami, a #PlantBoss from our Dirty Girl community who freed herself from all lupus symptoms with a plant based diet.
If you know anyone who has been diagnosed with lupus, please make this blog post a priority.
Lupus is a painful autoimmune disease that affects the body in a plethora of different ways. Most people are dished out medication like candy to manage their flare ups once they’ve been diagnosed, but when Jami was diagnosed with lupus, she said “fuck that!” and started down her own path of healing herself with food. Can you see why I wanted to chat with her?!
Without the support of her doctor, Jami started tweaking her diet and today she is totally free of all lupus symptoms. BowChickaWowWow #LikeABoss
Stories like these need to be told. And shared. And talked about.
If Jami would have listened to her doctor, she would still be on medication, without any hope of living a life free of pain. Stories like Jami’s give me fuel to keep doing what I’m doing. And hopefully give you fuel to keep eating plants! It was a pleasure speaking with her and hearing her story.
If you know anyone with lupus, please share this blog post with them. It might just change their life.
Enjoy our chat session.
Today’s recipe is perfect for summer. Go make some and eat a HUGE green salad!
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
- 2 tablespoons water
- 10 strawberries green tops discarded (or not if you want to keep them on)
- 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 – 4 turns cracked black pepper
- Place everything into your blender and blend until well blended and there are no bits of strawberry.
Wishing you a happy week. May it be filled with hope where there was none before.
