Here are the 5 KEY parts to the Empowered by Plants Membership 

Part 1: Monthly Trainings


Every great recipe is made up of a list of ingredients... take a cake for example! Forget even one ingredient (like the sugar) and the cake is ruined! That’s how obtaining your optimal body size can work sometimes. You may just simply be missing an important ingredient (hint… it is probably more plants)

Inside the Empowered by Plants membership, each month you will get access to a new deep dive training while you are in the program.

Part 2: Weekly How to Cooking Demonstrations

You’re not just getting the trainings on WHY you should eat this way, and left trying to figure it out on your own. I’m giving you everything you need to learn HOW to actually do it! AND get you all ready to build your own meal plans in the most foolproof way.

Weekly Cooking Demonstrations:  

How the Pros Cook!

Get inside my team’s brains! When you’ve been cooking a certain way for a long time, it is hard to know HOW to change. My team and I have made weekly cooking videos to show you what it took us years to learn. We’ve already made the bad and failed recipes, so let us SHOW you the good ones! How much will it help to get inside our brain and see exactly how we approach a plant focused diet, and what recipes we cook for ourselves and our family?! In this section of the Membership... 

we’ll train you on how to make the exact recipes that each of our families love and use everyday! 

you'll discover...


Month 1: what to make for breakfast including smoothies, oatmeal, savory dishes as well as pancakes, waffles and french toast. 

Month 2: what to eat for snacks, including sweet snacks, savory snacks, make ahead snacks and store bought snacks. 

Month 3: What to make for lunch, including potatoes all the ways, wraps, sandwiches, pasta and raman.  

Month 4: What to make for dinner: soups, salads, and bowls and how to repurpose leftover dinner into new meals.


Part 3: Weekly Pilates Workout Classes

"It’s not enough to just make plant focused meals…. you’ve gotta learn to love moving your body. You want to feel like a million bucks, right?!"

While what you eat makes up 80% of your health, there still is an important 20% that we can’t forget. Falling in love with movement will benefit you far beyond just getting bigger muscles or a slender body. Movement will help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. And regular exercise and movement is very effective to close the stress cycle in your day and help manage anxiety.  

Part 4: Access to a Community

The last thing you need is another facebook group. You don’t want to get distracted with cute babies and friend’s birthdays every time you go online to the community page of a program. We host our community within the Kajabi app and within our website, so no need to get distracted on facebook first. 

Joining a community and support group can significantly increase your long term success. 

Once you stop eating the standard American diet, you will most likely be eating differently than most of your friends and family. This can get lonely and feel isolating. You might even feel judged by others. Joining a support team and community will help strengthen you when things get tuff. You will need all the help you can get! It takes a village!

"I have been on this plant-based journey for a long time, but I would always hit a wall. And I think it was because of my lack of support. Joining this program gave me the group of friends and support that I needed.”--Kristy

Part 5: Monthly Mindset LIVE Q & A Calls

This is about the time where you might be saying, “Yeah Ali, but I’ve tried every diet before and nothing works for me.” NO.

Most people who start trying to eat healthy waste days trying to create the “perfect” diet. THEN... it gets overwhelming and they give up. Sound familiar?

...but how do you even know that it was the food that was the problem?! 

Half of changing your eating patterns is what you eat, the other half is all the thoughts that are going on in your head. Emotional eating, lack of being able to change old habits, doubt and difficulty resisting cravings and urges.

What People Are Saying:

I enjoyed eating meat, hard to say no to a perfectly cooked rack of lamb or bone-in rib eye! My skin, however, was not happy with me and I have had my eczema for years. After 3 weeks of eating delicious plant-based meals, my eczema completely cleared up! Normally, I would need steroid creams to get those results but these results came from the inside out! I’ve had Indian food, Ethiopian food, Nigerian food, all plants, no meat or dairy! My skin is thanking me and for that, I thank you Ali! Plant-based does not mean eating like a rabbit! It means the basis of what you consume is plants!


As a T2 diabetic for nearly 11 years, I’ve prided myself on consistently keeping my A1C well under 7.0 as my doctors taught. Most of the time it has been well under 6.0. I accomplished this by following the doctor’s guidelines of low carb, high protein diet. By every indication, I felt I was in complete control and doing well. Suddenly 5 years ago, that changed. I was rushed to the ER and learned that I was in kidney failure. I spent a week in the hospital and another month on dialysis. This left me with 30% kidney function and high blood pressure. I was on 4 high dose medications. I further pushed the low carb high protein diet and saw A1C numbers between 4.70-5.60. Great right? 2 years later I developed a diabetic ulcer on my foot. Something had to change!!! Thankfully I found Ali Essig and PlantWhys!!! I’ve always been a meat & potatoes guy, so when anyone ever mentioned “plant-based” anything, I was sceptical. I immediately came to realize that for the past 11 years, I was only treating the diabetic symptoms, not the underlying problem. This experience is changing my life! In 3 months, I’ve lost 32 lbs., and reduced blood pressure medication by 375%. If you’re ready to improve your health, you’d be well served to make Plantwhys a core piece of your program.

Kerry S

Over the years, I have attempted to transition to a plant-based diet several times, but always ran into the same struggles leading to my failure. Sorting through all the contradicting, fear-based information was time-consuming, and conflicting. Although I have an amazing support system, I felt all alone in making these changes for my family and myself. Which made me feel isolated and overwhelmed. Failed recipes from random online sources with complicated ingredients and cooking instructions felt like a major setback when they didn't turn out. Plantwhys was key in me overcoming each struggle I had. Struggles didn't go away, my life was still mine, but Plantwhys provided everything I needed to overcome.
