☑ You keep trying to transition to a plant based lifestyle, but end up constantly going back to meat & dairy

☑ The kitchen makes you nervous, or you feel completely lost when you enter: where to start?!?! And what do I eat to get all my nutrients?

☑ The grocery store is a never ending maze: what is plant based and what's not? You're confused!

☑ When you cook a plant based meal, it doesn't turn out like what you expected when you saw the recipe

☑ Cooking plant based feels overwhelming and way too time consuming for you

☑ You really REALLY want to eat plant based, but have so many cravings!

☑ You feel very alone as a plant based eater: no one in your family is on board


Then you are in the right place!

9 years ago when I started with the plant based lifestyle, I was exactly where you are! I really disliked cooking, felt lost in the kitchen, and the meals I made tasted and looked like mud. Cheese (and anything salty and crunchy) was my favorite food, and my version of a meal was heating up my grandma's food in the microwave.

But then, I did HOURS of cooking, nutrition research, recipe testing, and meal prep. I learned everything I could about plant based eating because I saw the healing miracles it can do, and changed my entire lifestyle.

I have now been eating this way for over 9 years, and I absolutely love it. It was truly the best decision I have ever made. I have zero cravings, I always enjoy my meals, and I always have something delicious waiting for me in the fridge that takes just minutes to put together into a meal!

If I can do it, so can you!!!

What if your diet + lifestyle looked like this:

You crave delicious plant based foods and enjoy them abundantly, without any restrictions

You feel amazing: full of energy, have clear skin, clarity of mind, and your ideal weight

It takes you minutes to confidently put together meals for yourself and your family that are filling, satisfying and delicious

You grocery shop with ease, and know exactly how to pick out the right foods that will fulfill your and your family's nutrient requirements

You are part of a community of plant based eaters, and always know that you can ask questions and get support

If that sounds like your ideal situation, then listen up 📣

It is 100% possible for you, and I am here to help you make it a reality!

Hi, I'm Marina!

Just 9 years ago, most of my dinners consisted of a bag of chips.

I had very painful PMS cramps, was constantly exhausted, and ate a ton of processed foods.

I was not paying attention to what entered my mouth: as long as it was yummy, I was excited.

Then, my mom and best friend became gravely ill with Interstitial Cystitis, a terrible bladder disease. She never left the house, and literally slept on the toilet.

When I lost my mom (she was still alive, but wasn't living), I realized the importance of health.

My mom used a plant based lifestyle to cure herself (after 8 years of battling this terrible disease), and I was so inspired to try it, too!

My partner and I began to eat a raw vegan diet, and we were the only vegans we knew!

After 4 years of eating that way, I realized it actually wasn't working.

I was still constantly craving cooked foods and dairy, and my PMS was worse than ever before!

That's when I found and Dr. Greger's evidence-based approach to food.

I started to eat whole food, plant based, and felt amazing!

My PMS was completely gone, my energy sky-rocketed, and I was so excited!

And that's when I decided to make it my mission to teach this lifestyle to others!

Even though our meals looked and tasted like dirt at the beginning of this journey, 9 years later and counting they look like this! And we absolutely adore every bite we eat! No cravings, no missing out - just pure joy and satisfaction!

I have been a vegan for years and wasn’t comfortable in the kitchen at all. I took her first class “The Effortlessly Flavorful Vegan Kitchen” which gave me the confidence and tools I needed. That class was such a game changer for me I gifted it to friends and family. I feel the same way about her “Vegan Meal Prep for Wellness” class. The nutritional content is amazing and she explains everything clearly and concisely. I now know what I should be feeding my body daily for optimal health. Her tips on food storage and meal prep will not only save me time, but money as well. Her teaching style is kind, nonjudgmental and meets you where you are on your journey.

I can’t say enough about this course. It’s another game changer that will gifted to friends and family again."

Frequently Asked Questions

When will the Academy begin and end?

This is a 4-week Academy, and enrollment will be open for a limited period of time. Each week, a group of lessons on a given topic will be released. After 4 weeks, you will have access to all the lessons forever, and can watch them again whenever you want.

I’m busy right now, and not ready to watch all the content. Should I still enroll?

Absolutely! You’ll have access to the content for life.

Can this Academy help me get healthier even if I’m not comfortable in the kitchen?

This Academy will give you a practical system that makes meal planning and preparation a breeze, great for beginners.

Who is this Academy not suitable for?

Those who don’t want to put any time and effort into their health, and are looking for a short-term diet or a quick fix, not a lifestyle.

I’m super busy! Will I have time to implement what I learn?

After taking this Academy, which lasts for 4 weeks, but will only take you a few hours to complete each week, you’ll be able to spend less than an hour per week planning your meals, and a few hours preparing food for the week. Enrolling in this Academy will also save you the massive time required to learn all of this information on your own.

This all sounds great, and I’d love to do it, but I’m really scared I will fail.

I totally understand, especially if you’ve tried to follow a plant-based lifestyle many times before and haven’t been successful in making it a lifetime habit. Have you ever heard this quote: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”, by Benjamin Franklin? This is what this Online Academy is all about. I’m going to teach you how to be prepared for delicious, nutritious meals, and I can promise you that if you follow all the simple steps I am outlining in the Academy, I am totally confident that you’ll be able to eat plant based for life!

Why should I trust you?

I’ve been plant-based for over 9 years, and have been educating about it for 6, helping thousands of people to transition and stick to plant based eating. I used to struggle with maintaining this lifestyle - cravings for unhealthy food, complicated meals, and bad tasting food - these were all my barriers, too. That is precisely why I developed this system. If it works for me, I know it will work for you, too!

Can’t I learn all this information by myself?

You absolutely can, however it will take you years to do so (it has taken me 6 years to truly become an expert at what I am about to teach you). I've also developed a unique meal prep method through my many years of experience that I absolutely know will change your life!

Why is this Academy different from other plant-based platforms out there?

This Academy is unique for several reasons: you’ll learn a batch cooking method that will save you massive amounts of time, you'll be taught nutrition information that is science-based. The Academy is also practical and systematic: simple, step by step, and super actionable. Lastly, I've also included mindset trainings to make your transition to plant based eating complete and lasting.

This Online Academy is an investment for me. How do I know it’s worth it?

Imagine how exciting, powerful, fulfilling, and liberating it will feel to finally follow the lifestyle you’ve always believed was the optimal one for you, but were unable to implement on your own. On top of that, this Academy will save you money by shifting your eating habits - making home cooked meals, using up all your groceries without letting them wilt away, and eating out less. Those are big wins that will make this Academy pay for itself!

If you are the type of person who:

Really cares about being healthy and feeling not just “eh” every day, but thriving!

Believes plant based eating is powerful in preventing disease and keeping you at your optimal weight

Loves delicious food, but has trouble coming up with delicious meals that will keep you eating plant based

Feels totally overwhelmed by all the conflicting information about food and nutrition out there

Keeps experiencing cravings for unhealthy foods

Lacks support for your lifestyle

Badly wants to get organized in the kitchen and around your food choices

Loves the idea of a plant-based lifestyle, but has trouble implementing it

Then this is the perfect Academy for you!

Lifetime access to the most reliable & convenient step-by-step Online Academy to go and stay plant based, all in one place!
