No More Stretchy Pants!

Ready to fight the lingering Thanksgiving Day bulge?! Join me in a 3 day “Refresh” challenge group when we return from our long weekend. This 3 day program is designed to reduce cravings and bloat, cleanse your body, connect with your body (one of my most favorite parts), AND lose a few inches while setting yourself up for a few weeks of success before the fun begins again!

A few of the questions you may have:
1) What are the benefits of being in an online challenge group?
· You have the support of your peers and those who are facing the same challenges you are.
· I will be there with you 100% guiding and coaching you through each of the days, you will not be alone on this journey.

2) Is this similar to a juice cleanse?
· It is not similar to a juice cleanse. This program allows you to eat healthy fats, fruits, vegetables along with your shakes for breakfast and lunch. As a health coach, I am personally not a fan of juice cleanses and believe this is a much better approach to “cleansing” our bodies.

3) As a certified health coach, is this something that you have tried before and what has been your experience?
· I have! Please visit my online videos from Day 1, 2 and 3, for more details.
Day 1
Day 2
Day 3

4) How much does it cost?
· The cost is $69.95 and you can find all the details and what’s included here.

My goal for this challenge is to set you up for success and allow you to recognize the needs of your body. These 3 days will be based on approximately 1500 calories a day and very limited to natural and basic foods. This is your time to commit to yourself for just 3 days to recognize and feel the difference when you feed your body nutritious foods. At the end of the 3 days, I will work with you to determine whether you want to continue in this journey with some support of if you are ready to conquer your health goals on your own. Either way it is completely up to you and I can provide guidance for both options.
*Side note – if you have been thinking of trying Shakeology, this is a great opportunity to do so. Your program is designed to have 1 Shakeology drink a day and it is included. 🙂
Any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Cheers to Mindful Healthy Living!

Kale Chips Kraze!

kale2
It’s true…kale has become one of the most talked about leafy greens within the last year, rightfully so, because of the incredible health benefits it contains.

Kale is a vegetable that is dynamic and can be eaten raw, steamed, cooked and even baked – which is my favorite! Kale is low in saturated fat, and very low in cholesterol. It is especially high in Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Vitamin A, providing you with at least 100% of your daily intake in just 1 cup of kale chips.

This past weekend I bought a HUGE bushel of kale from the local market and literally debated in my head what I should do with all of this kale. I am not a big fan of eating raw kale unless I put it in my smoothie so I decided to whip up some kale chips, which to my surprise were a huge hit so I wanted to share with you all how to make them and keep them in the house for an easy, healthy snack — a great alternative to potato chips too!

How to prepare Kale Chips:
Ingredients
• 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• Sea salt or garlic salt, for sprinkling
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes.
Variations include adding soy and sesame seeds OR adding a bit of parmesan cheese for a bit of a cheesy flavor.
