    Episode 17: Plant-Based Diets

    One of my listeners had asked me to explore plant-based diets, and so here it is!

    There can be overlap between whole-food, plant-based and vegan diets, but there are also some basic differences.  This episode defines 8 different ways to eat while still being considered a vegetarian, or plant-based, eater. Then I go into depth on two popular approaches: "Forks Over Knives" and Dr. Fuhrman's "Nutritarian Diet."  I explore the mistakes we tend to make when considering plant-based eating and the cost of making them. This week's actionable coaching advice helps you to start to shape the way you would like to eat. 
    The VFO (Valuable Free Offer) for this week is my booklet, "The Brilliance of Chocolate Cake."

    KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetheart

    KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetheart

    Episode #16:  KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetheart

    Stop complicating things, my friends! Hear my story about how I tend to overcomplicate things, and so have learned what to pass on to you.  It can be as simple as Yes/No lists or If/Then lists. All food plans and food styles have bones. You just need to learn them.  Learn to have your own back and keep it simple. There is scientific evidence (link below) that shows that the more like rocket science one's diet plan feels, the less likely that one will succeed with long-term adherence and maintenance. Follow your plan in a way that you can follow it in real life. Stay off the diet roller coaster by kissing and dancing (Episode #12). This week's actionable coaching advice gives you 8 easy recipes to keep it simple (links below) and advice that encourages you to keep cooking to a minimum. Your VFO this week are breakfast and lunch worksheets to help you think outside the box, while at the same time embracing keeping it simple.

    Cooking for the Family

    Cooking for the Family

    Episode 14: Cooking for the Family

    In this episode you don't just learn how to plan and put together meals for the entire family, but you learn something about support too. I support you to dispel beliefs that anyone's opinion of us at the table matters not, and that we need to learn to have our own backs and be our own support system. Your family and friends will travel your journey alongside you; they are not there to carry you. You will learn the consequences - emotional, financial and time - of preparing separate meals.  This is all in addition to more than a dozen family-friendly meal ideas, and resources to find cultural cooking websites.

    Whole 30, Paleo and Primal

    Whole 30, Paleo and Primal

    Episode 13: Whole30, Paleo and Primal

    This episode explores three very similar eating styles: Whole30, Paleo and Primal. I give you my experience with all three, and how to make each of them work best for you. They are not intended as weight loss styles, but done correctly, they can be. I talk about what mistakes we are making, why we are making them and the cost of doing so. This week's actionable coaching advice has you label sleuthing as you learn about finding natural foods, and if they are packaged, which ones you can eat while pursuing any of these three eating styles. The VFO: Valuable Free Offer is my Good-Better-Best method guide to help you make your next best decision, no matter which eating style you are following. The episode is a little longer than usual, but I suggest you listen to the whole thing because each of these eating styles offer good advice for finding overall health with your diet, even if you are not interested in following any of them.
