Deliciously Ella
The author started the blog as a way of dealing with a relatively rare illness, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, which impacted her life in numerous negative ways. She “couldn’t walk down the street, slept for 16 hours a day, had never ending heart palpitations, was in chronic pain, had unbearable stomach issues, constant headaches and the list goes on.” When conventional medicine failed to provide relief, the author took up a whole foods, plant-based diet and gave up all meat, dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed and all chemicals and additives. The blog’s content is focused on the author’s learning and healing process, and includes healthy recipes that make a whole foods diet easier to imagine.
