Mindful Eating Workshop

 

Where the mind goes, the energy flows.

Often when we feel out of control in life, we feel out of control with our eating habits. Food seems to be the only source of pleasure, and relief.

These habits can result in negative results: we end up overeating which causes weight gain and negative self – everything.

The good news here is that, we can absolutely get back in control with our food choices and eating patterns (and not gain that weight) once we have our mindset in the right place.

This is when the true mind-body connection creates harmony and delivers results we desire.

In this Mindful Eating workshop, I will show you simple tools to stop overeating, and release your weight naturally. I teach these tools during my signature weight release program TRANSFORM and see amazing transformations in my clients.

My weight loss clients have lost and maintained 8 – 50 lbs using these very tools.

Anyone who has been on a weight loss journey knows that it is not easy. It is simple in theory (eat the right food, in the right amount, at the right time), but it is NOT easy.

True sustainable weight loss requires that we get rid of the diet mentality and acquire skills that can help us manage our urges, instill new habits and sustain courage and confidence to keep going.

That is why hypnosis, acupuncture and coaching make a powerful combination of tools toward successful and sustainable transformation.

 

Come to the workshop on July 8 to receive these tools in person!

Registration is now open, and space is limited.

 

I would love to help you with these tools that you can start implementing right away. You will feel empowered by the power of your own mind. With implementation, the results you desire is for sure waiting for you.

 

**This is the last time I will be offering this particular workshop this year!

 

Recipe: Kit’s Cookies

Just a couple of years ago, I was introduced to cookies made completely without flour, or refined sugar. When I had my first one, I was hooked.

There is nothing wrong with cookies with flour and sugar, of course, unless they give you results you don’t love (digestive upset, desire to eat 5 or 10 more, weight gain, etc).

I searched for a recipe for these kinds of flour-less, no sugar added cookies. I found several, and in my regular fly by the pants cooking style (using recipe as a suggestion, and not following it completely), I created my own. I loved these cookies so much that I kept making them, each time experimenting with different ingredients. I found that the fewer ingredients, the better, and the quality of the cookies remain wonderfully decadent.

The more cookies I made, the more I got to share. Soon, I was giving away more cookies that I ate. And soon, I had to streamline the recipe and actually wrote it down because people started to ask for it.

And here it is, my friends, Kit’s Cookies recipe that I (mostly) follow.

I make these weekly still, as I eat 2 of them each morning with my coffee. I don’t consider them treats anymore… they are part of my regular daily diet.

Kit’s COOKIES

Ingredients:

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup nut butter (I use all natural smooth almond butter or sunflower seed butter)

2 tablespoons honey

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup cocoa nibs (optional)

1/4 cup raisins (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat oven at 350F. Mix all ingredients together (I used a stand up mixer) for a few minutes. Dough will be wet and sticky. Scoop into balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Recipe makes about 8 cookies. You can easily double or triple the recipe to bake more (to share or freeze for later enjoyment).

Clean and Lean for Summer Reset

It’s always a good idea to feed the body real, healthy, GOOD food.

It’s always a good idea to be kind and listen to our body.

When we do both, at the same time, the result we get is to live in a body at our natural body weight.

No dieting.

No cleansing.

No fasting.

No deprivation.

Simply a way of life and a healthy one at that.

It sounds so easy, doesn’t it?

But why do most of us have a difficult time and hold on to eating habits that don’t benefit our mind and body in the long run?

I have dealt with this challenge most of my adult life (eating too much – even if it’s healthy food – and dealing with all the chatter in my head (what, when, how much, etc.), and discovered recently a solution to overcome it.

Now I want to share the tools to with you because these tools have changed my life, quieted my mind, and recalibrated my body.

We are all capable of living in a healthy, natural weight for our body (and we are ALL different) without all the chatter, while eating plenty of real, good, delicious foods.

We are all capable to enjoying food while being kind to ourselves (because overindulgence is not kind).

Does this sound like something you would like to try?

Are you curious about how and where your body would be when we allow it to be at its natural weight?

If so, join me, for FREE, this July as I share with you how we can eat clean and get lean.

Simply sign up here, and you will receive emails from me before we get started.

 

See you (online) soon!
