Looking For An Immunity-Boosting Veggie Soup Recipe?
It’s time to try an immune-boosting veggie soup recipe with today’s featured chef Elizabeth Mansur, a plant-based lifestyle coach who’s passionate about supporting others to have healthy, whole-food plant-based lives, that pay off no matter what age you start! You can’t go wrong with a good, healthy vegan veggie soup in the colder months of the year. Soup warms the body and soul and can heal as well. Let’s see how this special soup is made…
She is 70 Years Old And Never Felt Better!
At 70, Elizabeth Mansur is living proof that being passionate about a healthy whole food plant-based lifestyle pays off, no matter what age you start! Her journey as a vegetarian started years ago. She was primed and ready when the whole food plant-based movement took hold during the past decade. Elizabeth loves her activities…tennis, yoga, and hikes in San Diego’s many trails keep her fit and flexible.
Her passion for healthy living led her to explore ideas around whole food plant-based cooking, and she decided to take a vegan cooking course at Rouexbe culinary school in 2017. Elizabeth believes the heart of the home is in the kitchen and that’s where her Lunch & Learn class was born. She hosted an intimate group of 6-8 guests in her eat-in kitchen for a delicious and fun plant-based cooking experience.
Along Elizabeth’s journey through volunteering, she had the honor to learn from the American Cancer Society Gerson Institute and the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. She was then able to parlay her knowledge and experience into her newfound San Diego vegan community where she created her own following with the goal to expand awareness beyond the immediate vegan community to both veg-curious and the restaurateurs catering to their emerging plant-based demand. One of her proudest accomplishments is repeatedly entering unknown territory by taking her meet-up followers to non-vegan restaurants as a demonstration to the restaurants on how to meet the demand of a growing plant-based society!
She hopes with her demo today that she is able to inspire viewers to adopt a plant-based whole food lifestyle.
