Start date: April 7, 2013 Location: Online!
This program is sold out for Spring 2013, but if you would like first dibs on a spot for Fall, email me at email@example.com.
Man oh man, people love this program. Me too. We love how we feel, we love the group enthusiasm, and we love the results. I love that some of you have detoxed with me year after year and still come back for more. I love that busy moms find space in their lives for change and women from around the world find real food that makes their bodies sing.
You inspire me each and every time we run this program, so let’s do it again. Spring cleansing, here we come. (And yes, I’ll be detoxing right along with you!)
What is it?
My detox is a guided 21 day program based on eating clean, real food. You can participate from anywhere, on your time.
Who’s it for?
Over the past 4 years, my detoxers have included women, men, athletes, moms, yogis…you name it. This gentle, sensible program is appropriate for most people including nursing moms who are getting enough sleep. If you have a serious food allergy or diet regimen prescribed by your doctor, please contact me prior to signing up. Not recommended during pregnancy.
Back by popular demand, we’re continuing to kick dinner’s butt!
Start date: March 4, 2013 Location: Wherever you are! Early Bird price available through 2/18. Enter code EARLYBIRD at checkout. Registration open until 3/20/13. Latecomers will have access to previous weeks’ meal plans to use another time.
This February, nearly 100 of you came together to unlearn the dance. You know the one I’m talking about? The one where you find yourself feeling crazy and stressed, spending too much money on prepared food, losing food in the back of the fridge, and compromising on quality just to get something – anything – on the table? Maybe a little hair pulling right before you pirouette into the delivery guy?
Listen up. There IS a way to avoid the dance, to actually eat food that nourishes you, and save money at the same time. When I remember (and trust me, I don’t always remember) I have a planning system that keeps dinnertime a happy time. In fact, my system worked so well with our February group, I’ve decided we must do it again in March.
In case you’re wondering, Winning at Kitchen means kicking butt and taking names in the kitchen, eating real food and having space to breathe.
What is it?
4 weeks of real food, no-fuss weeknight dinner meal plans . Recipes are dairy and gluten-free or easily modified. Some vegetarian meals, some with meat. You’ll get done-for-you, printable grocery shopping lists and make-life-easier prep instructions.
Early Bird price available Start date: February 4, 2013 Location: Wherever you are! Registration open until 2/15/13. Latecomers will have access to previous weeks’ meal plans to use another time.
I bet you and I know the same dance. It’s called the Last Minute Dinner Scramble. Ever do that one? The one where you find yourself feeling crazy and stressed, spending too much money on prepared food, losing stuff you forgot about in the fridge, and compromising on quality just to get something – anything – on the table? Boy, you’re a good dancer!
But there IS a way to avoid the dance, to actually eat food that nourishes you, and save money at the same time. When I remember (and trust me, I don’t always remember) I have a planning system that keeps dinnertime a happy time. This February, I’m going to share my system and be there by your side.
Don’t worry, we won’t be constantly cooking. My system is smarter than that. After all, Winning at Kitchen means kicking butt, taking names, eating well and having time to breathe.
For moms of lil’ ones, 0-3 years Location: Virtual! Wherever you are. Start date: 1/13/13 Registration open through January – latecomers welcome and will have access to all materials. Cost: Suggested $25 (all amounts appreciated, free to mamas in need)
But oh the changes! Our bodies, our priorities, our entire lives. Some days I literally do not look in a mirror, at all. I could have spinach in my teeth all day and have no clue. I haven’t been to my own doctor in over a year, opt to overlook my recent weight gain and have my fingers crossed that wet hair in the cold weather won’t get me sick. Because who has time to blowdry?
8:30 rolls around and I’m finishing the 3rd sinkful of dishes. My lower back aches.
A friend prompted me to check out photos of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy on the New Jersey shore. I had been feeling really lucky that we got away with only a gutter blown off our house and 10 minutes of power outage. I kinda didn’t want to think about this storm anymore, after days of anxiety and mental images of us standing on our rooftop waving to be rescued.
Even if you don’t have celiac disease or any known intolerance to gluten…I can’t really make a case for why you’d want to eat it.
Oh wait. Yes I can. Pizza. Pasta. Cake. Pie. (Gluten is a protein found in wheat and some other grains.)
But nutritionally speaking? Eh. Not much going on there.
And since every darn time I turn around someone else is talking about the problems gluten can cause, from digestive woes to acne to ADD…I’m thinking there’s good reason for everybody to lay off the bread.
This is hard. My husband feeds Danny breakfast in the morning and wants to give him cereal. Because it’s easy. It’s…ritual, I suppose. We grew up eating cereal. Mikey likes it. But I can’t find one that’s sugar-free AND gluten-free AND something Danny will agree to eat. I prefer the mornings we make eggs. Except the boys love to have bagels with their eggs, so it’s still a major gluten moment.
Thanks to everyone who entered in and shared my Annmarie Gianni Skincare giveaway. I was not surprised at the enthusiasm you all showed for such a great product!
Personally, I use Annmarie’s Aloe Herb Cleanser followed by the Neroli Mist and Herbal Facial Oil. I’ve also tried the Ayurvedic scrub and Coconut Body Oil – both delightful but I haven’t invested in full size versions yet.
Oh yeah, that’s right – I should mention you can give all of Annmarie’s products a try with her Sample and Travel Sets. Do that. You’ll be so happy.
Ok, onto our winners, who were chosen at random using Random.org…
Welcome to 21 Days of Detoxing with clean, whole, real food – boy do I have some good stuff in store for you! From now until May 13th you can find a new recipe here each day. You can wait until the next time I run this program live, or get yourself the DIY version available here.
Plant-based foods are often square pegs, forced into a meat-lover’s round peg world. Beans? Let’s make burgers out of them. Almonds? We can make it into milk! And soy…? Apparently we can make that into anything we damn well please, from tofurky to corn dogs to ice cream. Some of these substitute uses are perfectly natural and healthy. Others are super questionable.
They feel so pencils-sharpened-first-day-of-school exciting to me.
Since you’re such an enthusiastic fan of Find Your Balance (or so I’d like to tell my ego) I want to share with you a new project I’m involved in. It may not be for you, but maybe it would be perfect for someone you know.
If you’ve ever checked out my bio, you know that I used to work in advertising. You already know that I’m super passionate about healthy living. These two things used to feel so totally disconnected, like I had a split personality. Ever feel that way about the work you do and the hobbies/interests you have?
Anyway, it’s taken awhile but it’s all come together in a way that makes sense. And I wish the same to all of you – to find a way to live your passion, to do work you love, and to wake up every day feeling like, yeah, I can make the world a little bit better today.
I help busy women find balance in our over-worked, over-stressed lives. And because you're short on time, my no-nonsense approach gets straight to the point. A few shifts in diet and lifestyle will rock your world like they did mine. Read on
