A lot of times the thought of change can be paralyzing...
So many things that could NOT go right...
Often times that thinking leaves us paralyzed.
BUT....what are you missing out on by not taking action?
Where is your life sitting still?
I see this with health all the time.
My clients are scared to get the tools they need to help them move forward because they're worried about what could go wrong, instead of focusing what could go right!
So, when you give yourself the tools you need what do you think could go right?
Here are all the things I see go right for my clients:
~ You learn something new
~ You have fun
~ You get your family involved in learning a new skill
~ You lose weight
~ You have a healthy lunch ready to go for you
~ You start saving money because you invested in yourself!
~ You have a few extra hours in the evenings you didn't have before
Let's find out what could go right for you when you invest in yourself!

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.
Change can be scary, it can be hard.
Losing the weight or starting a new diet can feel like you are losing yourself and your identity.
And that is actually what is happening; you are getting rid of your old identity and building a new one!
You are brave for making a change, it is not easy!!
The faster you can believe in yourself to be that new person, the less painful that change will be.
Let’s get clear together on whom the new you is…..
What do you think and feel as a thinner, healthier you?
What tools do you need to become the new you?
Write all of that down and move forward from there and you will see how FAST and SIMPLE change is!
A client reached out to me the other day.
She said, “my family just does not support my new way of eating. Making this shift is so hard sometimes I don’t know why I am doing it.”
I told her the only support she really needs is her own!
The people in your life probably won't support you making a change at first.
They only know the old you, not the new you!
But you know the new you, you believe in that person and your ability to become that person... And that is what’s really important.
I asked her “what else can you feel in those moments when you see your family not support your new diet?"
How about pride in yourself for making the change that most will never dare to do?
What about self-love because you are doing something awesome for yourself?
What about gratitude for your family that loves you?
Those are all feelings to try on when you are feeling the challenge, when you are feeling down.
You can do this!
I am so proud of you for just getting started.
STOP FOR A SECOND.
When was the last time you paused and took a look at how far you have come?
How much you have grown since last year, how much weight you have lost, how many dietary changes you've made, how much more mature you are than yesterday ().
This plate pictured here is the sign I made for the original Basically It Meals before it was Basically It Meals.
4 years ago, it was called "The $6 Lunch". I would bulk batch my own meal prep and then take it to work each week and sell it to my coworkers. I hung this plate up at my cubicle to let them know when I had a batch to sell.
That is how far I've come.....from $6 lunch offered to coworkers, to full time business owner, to online course purveyor, to producer and TV personality.
We are all capable of INCREDIBLE CHANGE but so often we are stuck in "I haven't done enough", "I am not enough", "I will never get there".
So, stop for just one second today and give yourself a pat on the back for all the BAD ASS work you have put in!
I am so...
Yes, eating local foods makes a huge difference!
Plan your menus around local ingredients.
This is the best way to ensure you are getting:
The most nutrients possible
The highest quality ingredients
Organic for the best price (most small local farmers use organic methods, but simply can't afford the organic label)
Foods your body craves (our bodies are programmed to eat seasonal foods from our area)
Basically It Meals are all locally sourced so you get the best bang for your nutrition buck!
Happens to everyone.
Especially for those who don't like kale, but would like to enjoy the health benefits.
In this video, I break down three simple recipes to make kale taste really good (bitter? what are you talking about?! Fiberous? Not up in here!) so that you at least won't mind eating it.
If you've ever had a home garden, you know this is the time of year when basil is out of control.
You have so much you don't even know what to do with it.
It smells amazing, you might use it as a garnish, throw it in a tomato salad, but as far as using up a whole lot of it....what do you even do?
PESTO! Pesto is the answer.
Really though, pesto is the answer to many questions:
"How do I make this chicken less bland?"
"What do I dip my veggies in?"
"What should I spread on these gluten free crackers?"
"What is the most delicious thing to eat in the summer?"
Pesto! It really does solve so many problems.
So, I broke the whole recipe down for you in this video...
