Postponement and Reward

Update on the New Groups: We are postponing group sessions until after Sukkot and then we'll all begin. If you are interested in signing up for any of the 3 groups:

Weekly Weight Loss,
Weight Loss for Resistors,
or the last 30-Day Detox,

please email me at asap!

Private counseling continues as normal throughout the Holiday period.

My weight loss method is a NO-DIETING method. When you eat delicious, healthy, whole, natural foods, weight releases from your body naturally. This allows you to also maintain what you've lost without constant deprivation, calorie counting, and struggle.

Lite bread filled with artificial flavors and preservatives, non-fat dairy products filled with chemicals fillers and fake fats, artificial sweeteners, packaged, processed food made by machines... all of these these are toxic and unrecognizable by your body. Each of those foreign substances are stored away in your fat cells and actually lead to weight GAIN! Ick. PLUS all of those artificial flavors just keep you jonesing for more and your appetite rages out of control.

Dieting is a temporary solution to your weight loss problem. You lose weight while you're on the diet white-knuckling through with will-power, but then you fall off the diet because it's so dang restrictive, and you gain your lost weight back. Sound familiar? Sure it does because we've ALL done it over and over again!

I'm sure you have all heard that expression about the definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again while hoping for a different result.

How about trying something different? Something that makes sense and listens TO the wisdom of the body rather than stifling it with tortuous will-power and subjegation?

I invite you to hang up that ineffective dieting practice and learn to eat to feed your body and your health. Your body is an incredible machine and it knows what it's doing. I will teach you how to listen and give it what it needs to run at top efficiency.

Join one of the groups, work with me privately, read my newsletter, email me, call me...It's time.

OK, so if you got this far in the post I am giving you a reward! Last night two of my 30-day detox groups wanted to celebrate the completion of their detox, so we had a party. It was a pot-luck. Do you imagine that everyone brought cheesecake and chocolate, chips and soda to celebrate? No Way! They are all feeling so amazing and so hopeful that they ALL prepared beautiful, healthy whole-grain, veggies dishes that tasted SO GOOD! There was:

Creamy Roasted Vegetable Soup
Vegetarian Chili
A Giant Fresh Green Salad
Brown Rice Salad with Apples and Cranberries
Thin Tofu Slices with Tomatoes, Basil, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar
Vegetable Casserole
Quinoa with Orange, Spinach & Chickpeas
Green Tahina Sauce with Herbs

Wow! Everything was really delicious. And I brought a yummy dessert that didn't have anyone's blood sugar flying off through the roof or set cravings in motion or anything! Safe, high-fiber, full of nutrients and delish. Here ya go:

Emily's Vegan Flax Cookies

1 cup oats, ground in the food processor to make a flour (1 cup ground actually)
1/2 cup spelt flour
1/2 cup ground nut flour leftover from making nut mylk
1/4 cup whole flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar
1/3 cup sunflower or coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 180 C (350F). Oil a cookie sheet.

Stir together flour, flax, cinnamon and salt. Add maple syrup, oil and vanilla. Stir until combined. Drop teaspoon-fulls onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until turning golden. Cool on a rack.

Isn't this better than dieting???
