Vegan Challenge: Dr. Laura & Dr. Ernie


Spring is all about a fresh start.  We are going to take this season’s cue and run with it!

More and more we hear about how a plant based diet can lead to health benefits and improve how we feel.  So Dr. Ernie and I are using this inspiration to go Vegan for the month of April.

We want you to join us!

I’m going to help out!  Here’s how we can do this.


1) Weekly Menu Posts!  Every Monday I am going to post what we are eating for the week.  After more than a decade of passionately studying nutrition, and a lifetime of enjoying the experience of good food, I know there are a lot of awesome recipes out there just waiting to be made.

*** Those who subscribe to my blog will get them automatically emailed to them.  So SUBSCRIBE to get the MENU sent right to you!***

2) Updates and Feedback!  We are on an adventure and we are going to keep it real.  It’s not always easy to do something like this, yet there will also be glorious days of feeling amazing!  We’ll share all the ups and downs and let you know how we’re doing.  This will hopefully serve as a compass for your journey, too.

***I’ll tweet our reactions and food prep on Twitter… Follow me on Twitter @drlauraimola or access Twitter through my “Sweet Tweets” blogroll.***

PLUS YOU!!… Use the Comments section to let all of us know how YOU are doing.  It would be great to start some chatter about what’s working for people and what’s not.  I love hearing from you!

3) Work at your own comfort level!  This is supposed to be inspiring and fun.  Whether you take some of the ideas and recipes and infuse them into your regular diet along with healthy animal protein choices (chicken, turkey, fish) or you join us 100%, the most important thing is to listen to your body and do what you feel is working for you!  Your life, your health, your choice!  Let’s have fun with it!  😉

4) Email me for guidance!  My door is always open.  If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email me anytime at


Ok… so here we go!  Let’s get our GLOW on through GREEN foods!  We start April 1st… check out the first menu post on Monday March 31st!
