Vegalicious in Ohio! Hi!

#1 Postby Vegalicious » Mon Jul 08, 2013 9:12 pm

Hello!

My name is Elena. Both, my husband and I, have been vegan since 2006.

I am a certified personal and group fitness trainer. I am also a full-time blogger. I blog about all things vegan, but primarily HOW TO DO VEGAN RIGHT, avoiding the unhealthy, junk pitfalls many new vegans fall into. I developed and run a 30-day online program, BODY BY PLANTS (http://www.vega-licious.com/services/vegan-30-day-boot-camp-weight-loss-health-improvement/), teaching people how to transition to a healthy plant-based diet, and, for those who are already vegan, how to make sure it is clean and healthful, as well as it is kind.

I have released several finger-licking delicious vegan cookbooks (electronic format).

I had a fabulous vegan pregnancy (http://www.vega-licious.com/category/health-nutrition/vegan-pregnancy/), while still teaching and training 10 hours a week, and snapped right back into my pre-pregnancy shape in less than 2 months. I actually went into labor on the day I taught 2 fitness classes and did side splits :).

I am raising a very healthy and bright vegan baby.

This week I am kicking off a Vegan 101 Webinar series, and anyone is welcome to join :). Details here: http://www.vega-licious.com/how-to-become-vegan-101-series-registration/

I teach people how to be healthy, how to be lean, how to be fit, and how to be vegan and I love it!

My current goal is to lean out, tone up and get my body ready for vegan baby #2 :).

I like your site! I'm working toward no added sugar or oils too so I will be keeping an eye on your info. :)

Welcome!
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Thank you! It is getting only better! I am about to make some updates to make it VERY mobile friendly, so cannot wait!

Glad to have you in my community as well! We thrive on no sugar or oils :)
