Making a change is HARD!
Whether you are changing houses, toothpastes or overhauling your diet, your brain does not love change.
Make it easier by being prepared.
This is the ONE step I see most people completely skip when they decide to lose weight.
You choose a goal weight, maybe even a diet you want to follow and then each day you wake up and have to figure out how to stick to that diet while being faced with all your old habits.
In that scenario, your brain has NO capacity to form new habits!
You are basically in fight or flight stress mode, just trying to get by with a healthy meal while your old habits work to keep you doing the same old.
To really make a change, planning HAS to occur.
Your healthy meals HAVE TO be ready for you so that old habits are easy to let go of.
This is WHAT WE DO in The Meal Prep Course.
We get you planned, prepared and relaxed, so when temptation arises it is NOT A PROBLEM.
Those new habits form fast and naturally. No fighting or resisting.
When I was getting my nutrition degree, I was sucked into a common belief: that American's health is failing not by choice, but by force.
This attitude bleeds into our culture and tells everyone "You can play the blame game, too".
I spent many years being angry at fast food, being angry at big AG, being angry with the food companies hiring chemists to manufacture foods that could hijack our taste buds.
How could they do this to unsuspecting, innocent American's and steal their health?
I felt powerless. I imagine you have felt this way, too.
There is nothing I can do to save our health.
But then I began to realize, my health is in my hands.
Your health is in your hands.
America's health does not lie with big AG or in a factory farm. It lies with each individual American.
YOU are the only one with the power to get healthier or sicker.
And that is not me BLAMING you, that is me EMPOWERING you.
You have a choice; and there are actually quite a few out there.
If you're busy, low on cash,...
Diets don't work...
Unless you have a plan.
If you want to overhaul how you eat, you're going to need to put some planning in.
When I was in my size 8 pants, I would wake up and think "today will be different," but it wasn't because my fridge was the same, my pantry was the same, my habits had not shifted at all.
To lose the weight, to make a dietary change, you have to plan for it.
What foods will you be eating?
How are you going to get them on your table?
What is for lunch?
What is for dinner?
What are you snacking on?
You need to know this before saying "I am going to make a change,"" will actually result in a change.
I can help you do this, just like I have helped so many others do this.
Take it from Denise who has been able to effortlessly stick to keto since she took The Meal Prep Course.
"Since taking the course, sticking to keto has been so easy for me. I am losing weight and keeping it off." - Denise, Life Coach
I would love to help you do this work inside The Meal Prep Course...
The $1,000 course going for $47
I developed The Meal Prep Course with the thought in mind that if someone were to ask me to teach them these things in person, I would charge at least $1,000.
$1,000 because the result my client would walk away with would give them that back over and over each year for the rest of their life.
Because this info is so valuable, I wanted to make it easily accessible to all, I put it in a course. And I still thought “the value of this go at your own pace course is easily worth $1,000”.
When you take what's in The Meal Prep Course and implement it in your life, you can save thousands of dollars a year on wasted food.
Good things don’t come easy...
I was sweating my butt off at the gym today, kind of regretting being there, when this thought hit me.
If I want to feel the way I want to feel this summer, I’m probably going to have to go through it. Feel discomfort. Sweat. Skip dessert.
This goes for saving money, getting more free time each week, committing to meal prepping.
The work you put in upfront might not be easy.
You might even need to invest money upfront to get these things...
But if the result is worth it, then the “hard part” isn’t so bad.
I challenge you to do the hard thing today- invest in yourself, sweat, go through the pain.
It’s worth it on the other side.
Join the meal prep course and you will definitely give yourself the gift of time and money on the other side!
When I speak with people who have set many goals and not achieved them, there is a lot of frustration.
Self blame, guilt, resentment. It's not a fun place to be.
I have been there. My clients have been there.
Want to reach your goals?
Lose weight, gain health, be able to chase your kids, be sexy for your spouse, look good for bikini season, have more energy- it can all be achieved if you empower yourself to take control of what is going in your mouth.
Meal prepping is that control and I can show you how to get I done quickly, in a way that puts money back in your pocket and is relaxing and fun.
Join me for the movement.
The movement that is going to get you living a better life and change the face of American health as we know it.
The Meal Prep Course is it.
So far, the students who have gone through it are seeing changes in their life so dramatic, they are calling the course "priceless".

What happens if you "screw up" your diet this weekend?
The quickest way to recover from a "diet blunder" is to just do the next best thing; wait until you're hungry to eat, grab a salad, skip dessert, include a healthy snack.... You will be back at it no time!
It's important to remember that just because you had a few days when you weren't nourishing yourself properly, it's ok. We all fall off and get back on. It's about consistency, give yourself permission to forgive yourself for eating pizza and taking a few days off from the gym, and start again!
It's a lifestyle, not a diet. When you mess up, let it go, and make the next meal healthier. All you have is the current moment, there is no need to dwell on what happened, as long as you're trying to make the healthiest decisions right here and now that's all you can do!
You know you are getting the most out of your workout when...
You are working up a sweat. No, not every "workout" needs to include an intense sweat, and certain activities it may seem like you're not sweating (swimming or a run on a cold day), but a good sweat is a great sign that you are pushing yourself.
Your muscles are burning!! This is a sign that you are breaking down muscle tissue that will be repaired bigger and stronger!
You sleep like a baby....this is a great sign that you pushed your body and now you are getting great rest and repair sleep.
When buying ingredients at the grocery store the thought of what products are actually in season doesn't cross most people's minds. But, eating seasonally is SOOO important for your health!!
Your body is programmed to eat what is growing around you based on the weather.
Choosing local farmers (try the farmers market!), shopping the seasonal produce (usually it's found in bulk and at great prices!), and basing your menus on what is in season (which is exactly how we build our menus!) is a crucial step in living a healthy life. :)
If you want delicious meals that have the best seasonal ingredients delivered right to your door sign up for Basically It Meals here!
Celery is an AMAZING food with so many health benefits. Here are some ways I look to incorporate celery into my diet:
Celery juice mixed with aloe Vera juice. I had some seriously dry skin at the start of this season. I used this combo to help me rehydrate and acclimate to the weather change!
Make your own homemade celery juice! This is one of my favorite ways to get my daily nutrients. All you need is organic celery and a juicer! I find it way more cost-efficient than hitting the juice shop. Sometimes I like to add extras like lemon and ginger. Ginger is especially great for cold and flu season
