Oh hey season 6! I am so not a newbie at this anymore. Helping people all over the place and loving it!
One thing I really want to emphasize is that making positive changes to our diet really doesn’t have to be as hard we tend to make it out to be. Paleo this GF that, low carb, no carb, raw, and the list goes on. What the heck are we supposed to eat?? We are going to eliminate all the stuff that causes distress in our system for a period of time and let our bodies TELL US what it loves and what it does not.
That is where the support comes in. Based on what you are experiencing I can point you in a direction that will empower you to make decisions in the right direction. I am not here to replace your doctor but what I can do is put my schooling as a certified holistic health coach to good use.
You know the story. We are determined to not give up cheese, coffee, grains, sugar because we love it even though insert ailment here…hives, psoriasis, ibs, constipation… you name it. Time to grow up kids. You feel like crap and you need to make changes. The best news is that just because you shouldn’t eat something right now doesn’t mean you won’t be able to eat it ever again. Maybe it does but you know what…. you will feel so good that you won’t want it. There was a time when I could not eat a myriad of things because sugar, dairy, and caffeine were triggering and FEEDING AILMENTS that were going on inside my body. Now that my body has healed ( there is always room for more improvement/healing) I can enjoy things like an occasional slice of pizza, my ultimate weakness.
You don’t have to be sick to do this you just have to want to crank it up a notch. I have had people of all levels come through and each have found a new level of success and come back for more each season. I love that. I have regulars! One thing is for certain….. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink. Admittedly… sometimes I am my worst offender. We know what to do and it’s really hard to do it by ourselves. I help you because helping you helps me.
So what are people really saying about this…..
This testimonial is from a gal that I am friends with on facebook. We like each others photos and cheer each other on. I have never met her in person but I am so so SO proud of her accomplishments in healing.
Because she is part of a ground breaking new study for neurological disease at John Hopkins I can not release her name at the request of her physicians. She totally rocked the reboot and then signed up for the school I went to so she could help others with conditions similar to her own. How awesome is that?!
I have had several lovely fellow photographers come through the program. We tend to have a lot in common. We sit on our ass editing photos, many of us have kids, families, and are shooting sessions only to find ourselves needing nourishment directly after a session only to see more drive through windows than we would like. The wearing of many hats along with the go go go nature of the business many are experiencing adrenal fatigue not that we are 5-10 years in. We travel. We tend to make not so great choices and if we are shooting weddings we really don’t get a choice. Photographers…you know what I am talking about.
Joining in on the Reboot was an opportunity for just that; a reboot. What I found as the days went by was that my view of food began to change. The included documents in the reboot lay it all out for you so you never have to guess what is next, or what to expect.
I began to truly understand that eating for heath does not mean I can no longer enjoy food. The recipes included in the program were delicious, fresh and inspiring. A few of the recipes I used to build off of with my own ideas. This process also reaffirmed my suspicion that pastured dairy causes my skin to break out. I’m now enjoying my coconut milk all the more.
Furthermore, since I had given up coffee because of adrenal issues, I always had that dreaded “afternoon slump”, but on the reboot, I noticed I had more energy during the later afternoon and found it easier to pick up an activity like going for a walk or riding my bike.
I’m looking forward to signing up for the next reboot and to the change that it will bring with it; both inside and out.”

Got Questions? I have the answer.
WILL I BE STARVING?
Not at all! There are recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and there is room for snacks in between. Every meal is delicious and created by a fabulous chef to nourish your body from the inside out. This program is not about starvation or deprivation, and we are not counting calories or dwelling on carbs. You will feel satisfied with every bite. If you do get hungry, there are extra snack recipes included!
CAN I STILL WORKOUT DURING THE PROGRAM?
Please workout during the program! If you feel tired or have low energy, exercising restores both strength and energy. During this program, you will be eating protein and drinking plenty of liquids, so if you’re already exercising, there’s no reason to stop! It is important to remember that whenever you change the foods you eat your body changes as well. Please consult with your doctor if you have any specific concerns about your health.
WHAT SORT OF PROTEINS WILL I BE EATING?
You will have the option for plant or animal-based proteins, which will be listed out for you in your recipes and suggested meals. There are so many “clean eating protein sources” to choose from you won’t get bored with your options!
AM I ONLY GOING TO BE DRINKING JUICES AND SMOOTHIES?
No way! While there are some juices and smoothies for you to choose from, you will also be eating salads, soups, and even desserts that are delicious, nutritious, and will eliminate toxins in your body in a safe and natural way.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS, PILLS, AND POWDERS?
Not in this program!! The only supplement I recommend that everyone take on a daily basis is a probiotic, and you’ll learn why in this program.
CAN I DO THIS IF I’M NURSING OR PREGNANT?
If you are nursing, I suggest that you add at least 4-6 ounces of protein at lunch and dinner, boost your morning smoothie with a scoop of hemp or pea protein, and eat snacks in between meals. Make sure you are consuming extra fat and drinking enough liquids. This program does not include any detox-provoking agents, but again, please consult with your doctor prior to starting this program if you have any health concerns.
WILL I FEEL WEAK DURING THE PROGRAM?
You are going to feel so strong and energized it will amaze you! In the beginning, your body may go through a “healing phase” to re-balance and let go of toxicity. It is important to listen to your body through this program, and I will be here to support you with that. I will guide you step by step through exactly what can be done to reduce any unwanted symptoms that may appear. This program is completely flexible for figuring out what works for YOU!
I DON’T EAT GLUTEN OR DAIRY. HOW CAN THIS PROGRAM HELP ME?
Many people who eat very “clean” already still have room to empty out the pipes with an elimination diet and take their healthy habits to the next level. Changing up the foods we eat gives our digestion time to rest and reset, which can be helpful for anyone regardless of their current eating habits.
WHAT SIDE EFFECTS MIGHT I EXPERIENCE?
Some people go through this program and feel nothing but energized, while others may feel tired or light-headed as their bodies eliminate and let go of unnecessary toxins. The experience will differ from one person to the next, but this program is designed with that in mind, and you’ll have access to all the tools you need to keep any unwanted symptoms at bay.
I HAVE A KNOWN MEDICAL CONDITION. IS THIS STILL SAFE FOR ME?
While this program is based on eating only whole foods, food is powerful, and it is still advised that you consult your physician before beginning this or any program.
