What I Teach

Hi! I’m Elizabeth Rider. I write about delicious healthy food, teach wellness without deprivation, and believe that every single one of us has the power to create exactly what you desire.

Transforming yourself into a healthy, vivacious, status-quo-can’t-keep-up-with-her kind of modern woman doesn’t have to mean giving up all the fun and resigning yourself to your new life as Sister Mary Eats Nothing Delicious. In fact, I’ve dedicated my entire body of work to making sure that isn’t the case.

It’s about being you, only better.

As the host of the FMTV show, Elizabeth Eats, creator of The Mint Wellness Circle for women, long-time blogger, online influencer and modern health expert, this entire website is dedicated to showing you real tricks, tips, and effective hacks for going from tired, uninspired, bloated, icky, and exhausted to becoming a woman with spring in her step who glows from the inside out—just by making one new lifestyle tweak every day. Because living and eating healthy shouldn’t mean the end of your life, altogether.

How I Got Here

Age 17 years old: Iʼm climbing the stairs at my high school and suddenly have to sit down. Iʼm winded—a strange phenomenon for teen who was a dancer her entire life. Between that and an unforgivable bout of mono, I ended up at the doctor where a blood panel would reveal that my thyroid levels were so low, I needed to get on medication that very same night.

I’d be on that medication forever.

Except I wouldn’t ever really feel better. A little, sure. But something always felt off. Between bottomed-out energy levels and weight I just couldn’t seem to shake, I lived my way into my thirties figuring I’d just have to accept my fate.

But then I discovered Epstein-Barr.

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) isn’t anything new. And 95% of the US population has it. But modern medicine barely understands it. It’s said to live at the end of many people’s nerve endings, but it’s soooooo tiny, that your immune cells are even too big to get there. So there it stays, embedded deep inside our tissues, and it can be reactivated at whim. And when that happens, most doctors assume the body is attacking itself—but that isn’t always the case. (Hello misdiagnosed autoimmune conditions.)

Enter: my confusing relationship with a rarely understood virus: Epstein-Barr

As it turns out, Epstein-Barr was exactly what I had, all those years; yet, traditional medicine doesn’t know a lot about treating it. So I had no choice but to learn how to treat it myself. EBV is likely the cause of my severely low thyroid problems but there isn’t really any scientific evidence to prove that. What I do know is this: when I started treating the EBV everything else got better.

If nothing ever felt wrong, I wouldnʼt have realized just how out of alignment my health was in the first place.

I turned to nutrition, first, and slowly but surely began experimenting.

I learned that eating real food helps, and processed food makes me tired. That cutting out harmful chemicals from beauty products was was easier than I thought, and small lifestyle tweaks here and there made all the difference in my health.

And then one day, after many years of tweaking and testing and trial and error, I finally cracked the code. That day, I left the doctor’s office with my first Epstein-Barr FREE test.

I cannot tell you how this feels. But I can tell you this: it’s why I’m so passionate, now, about everything health and wellness. Not because it’s a fad, but because eating well was the only way I could feel good and manage all of the moving parts of my life.

And apparently, my story and teachings have resonated. I went from being a top performer at a Big 4 accounting firm, to leaving it all behind to study nutrition and whole living, to building a six and then seven figure online business based all around something that I’m wild crazy obsessed with. (Interested in seeing how I pulled it off? Click here.)

This website is my office; the words are my mind; the recipes are my creations; the courses and programs are my deepest intentions. And I suppose, in a poetic way, I have the Epstein-Barr virus to thank for all of this.

Fast forward to today, and I’ve now coached thousands of women around the world on health and whole living.

Over 10,000 people have purchased my online programs… and counting. (Because entrepreneurship is my second passion!) I’m the host of the Elizabeth Eats TV show. (Still surreal!) I’ve got an entire membership community that exists solely to help other women. I’m working on a book. I’m feeling good in my skin. And I’m standing here to tell you that if something feels off with your body or your life, then something definitely is. You might not know where to start, but that’s why you’re here: because we’re going to figure it out together. I’m going to walk with you, step-by-step through your journey, as well. And together, we’re going to take you from “meh” to madly vibrant.

Because you can go through life with a low level unease coursing through your system. You can go through life sucking it up, making due, feeling just okay, and hoping it gets better soon—whether it’s your body or your mind or your lifestyle or your relationships. You can go through life always wondering if it’s you or…something else.

Or, you can start inquiring.

And even though this might be my website? It’s dedicated to you. The inquirers. The question-askers. The wonderers.

And the women who want to feel good about who they are again.

How I Roll
  • Real food is good.
  • Processed food is not.
  • Sugar is the new cigarette.
  • Relationships are everything.
  • Character counts.
  • Travel makes you smarter.
  • Progress trumps perfection.
  • Perfection doesnʼt exist.
  • Compassion is whatʼs missing in the world.
  • Personal responsibility is the key to freedom,
  • and only you can make yourself whole.
I believe in a 80-20 lifestyle, because perfection doesn’t exist.
