Our Story

Who We Are And What We Do

We are two green-juice-loving sisters on a mission to inspire and motivate people to take control of their own wellbeing through an alkaline lifestyle. We want to show everyone that it is not only possible, but also fun, easy and accessible.

Cups of Green was created in 2016 by Ida and Daphne as a holistic wellness concept of the Plum Blossom Foundation. Ida and Daphne both experienced great health benefits after following an alkaline lifestyle. Ida, who suffered from severe lupus, managed to put her disease into remission within 3 months, and was finally able to get off all conventional treatments after a 12 year battle. Daphne learned how the change in her diet increased her energy levels and reduced her allergy symptoms.

We experienced ourselves what Hippocrates meant by saying: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Balancing the body’s pH is the key to living a healthy, vibrant, and energetic life. Now we want to share that experience and help others achieve overall well-being and vitality through lifestyle change.

Whether you want to lose weight, are coping with health issues or are just looking for a healthy way to detox and energize, we can help you on your journey. Together with our partners in the wellness & nutrition industry, we offer a complete wellness concept to provide you with the knowledge and tools to change your life and the way you think about nutrition.

If you feel inspired to learn more about how to take your vitality to the next level, we invite you to join our life changing alkaline detox retreats, workshops, pop-up events or personal consulting sessions.

Ida Kolader

Founder Plum Blossom Foundation

Ida is the founder of the Plum Blossom Foundation. In addition she is a certified bellicon® Move trainer and certified in Plant-based nutrition by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She is a traveler, loves photography and is dog-crazy. You can find her walking in the woods snapping beautiful pictures of her dog Zorba. Ida can be described as a very strong and determined young woman. When Ida was rejected in 2013 to get further chemo therapy on a trial treatment she was on while suffering from a severe form of lupus, she decided to take matters into her own hands. After reading many success stories of people who followed an alkaline lifestyle protocol, she changed her life around. Now Ida has become a success story herself and has been off all conventional treatments for over 2 years. Her story was told in the before and after films: FLARE and OVERCOME, which have even been played at multiple international short-film festivals. Ida created Cups of Green together with her sister to inspire and help others by sharing her experience and the hands-on knowledge she gained on her path to well-being.

Daphne Kolader

Co-creator Cups of Green

Daphne is a healthy lifestyle advocate and consultant certified in Plant-based nutrition by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. In addition she is a certified bellicon® Bounce trainer. Daphne loves rebounding, yoga, healthy cooking and traveling. She is a “do it all” type of lady; from modelling to being a diplomat specialized in international law and an artist manager for poet Aja Monet. Daphne has recently decided to make a career change and enter the world of wellness & nutrition full-time with Cups of Green. In 2013, she accompanied her sister Ida on her mission to regain her well-being through an alkaline lifestyle. After witnessing her sister’s dramatic results, Daphne soon experienced a big change in her energy levels and her clarity of mind – and she saw the hugely beneficial impact that her new alkaline lifestyle had on her allergies. Daphne is focussed on creating awareness about the connection between food & lifestyle choices and well-being. As a former model and beauty queen (Miss Limburg 2008) she knows how important it is to control your weight in a healthy way – an alkaline lifestyle is the ideal way to do this.
