Ezra's Enlightened Cafe was created as a space for healing through food, drink and education. Established in August of 2014, we've been serving up high vibration healing food to our community for 5 years.
Our mission is for you to leave us feeling better than when you arrived.
Our Enlighten Your Plate Membership is no different ~ it's created to help you FEEL BETTER. And when we feel better, we do better. Our quality of life is higher, we're more productive, we sleep better and we connect on a higher level to those around us.
Food is an amazing tool to help us live our best lives. This membership offers three different avenues to nourish and connect on that deeper level:
1. Ezra's Cafe menu discounts ~ you'll have discounts on smoothies, juices, Buddha Bowls, classes and all retail herbs for the life of your membership ~ this is AWESOME for those of you who are regular customers.
2. Wellness Groceries - as an EYP Member, you'll have the ability each week to pre-order your groceries, such as our cheezes, milks, breads, soups, beans, cooked grains and more ~ AT A MEMBERS ONLY PRICE. Pretty incredible!
3. Online learning and community ~ we have created a private online community for you to connect to other members, share and learn from each other and also connect with Chef Audrey each week through live videos and more.
We'll also be offering monthly recipes, kitchen tips, e-books, articles and video to help support you with in the kitchen and beyond.
All of this (an over $75 monthly value) for less than $20/month.
Audrey is the creator and owner of Ezra’s Enlightened Café, established in 2014. Chef Audrey began her journey toward healing in her early 20’s when she was experiencing chronic fatigue, extreme hormonal imbalance, IBS and depression. Inspired by a family member to try plant-based eating, she let go of gluten, dairy and processed foods and added more fresh plants to her plate. After experiencing an incredible amount of healing, she never looked back.
In 2009, Audrey completed massage therapy training and left her corporate job. She traveled to Northern California to become a plant-based chef at the Living Light Culinary Institute, learning how to create food that helps people heal. For eight years she operated a wellness business as a massage therapist, energy practitioner and plant-based chef, working one-on-one with clients, teaching classes and cheffing and even cheffing for and co-hosting island retreats in Barbados.
Over the past decade, Audrey trained in herbalism with wise woman herbalist Susan Weed, Ron Teeguarden of Dragon Herbs, and Rosita Arvigo. She's regularly educating herself through online courses, attending lectures and conferences to stay up on the latest science and and discoveries in the world of holist healing and herbalism . Audrey is also a student of the Terra Kathryn Collin’s Western School of Feng Shui and applies these principles to everything she creates.
A large part of Audrey’s healing journey was recovering from many years on synthetic birth control and rebalancing her hormones. Audrey incorporated this service into her wellness offerings by becoming a Certified Maya Abdominal Therapist through the Arvigo Institute in 2012, helping women heal physically, emotionally and spiritually through tending to the care of the womb.
She opened Ezra’s Enlightened Cafe in 2014, bringing her experience and training into every aspect -- from classes and programs to menu items and retail herbs. Then, in 2016, Audrey and her family became stewards of a six acre plot of land in Indianapolis. Using permaculture and regenerative growing practices, they farm a small section of the land to provide organic produce and herbs for the café and for medicine making. Audrey’s experience as a chef and massage therapist helped pave the way to the life she lives now through the cafe and farm – in service of helping people feel better and live a vibrant life.
Audrey is excited to bring her past decade of personal healing and guiding others on their healing journey to this membership. She considers herself a forever student and loves sharing what she learns to help others benefit, grow and heal.
