Join me for a 21 days and discover the answers to all of your burning questions about how and what you should actually be eating. (Hint: It’s probably not what you think.)

NO CLEANSING, NO DETOXING, NO DIETING;

JUST PLAIN GOOD-OLD-FASHION

HEALTHY EATING & GOOD NUTRITION.

 

The fun begins January 2nd, 2017!

Online. In your email inbox. In the comfort of your own home. At your own pace. Registration for this one-time live event opens November 28th and closes Dec. 12th EST.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT:

Ultimately, to teach you the core concept of bioindividuality and that no one way of eating is best for everyone. You’ll learn how to eat the best way for you—no prescribed diets here. Vegan, vegetarian, raw, dairy-free, gluten-free, carnivore, Paleo, pescatarian — the list goes on and on. No one way is best for everyone; one person’s food is another person’s poison. I’ll teach you how to figure out which way is best for you, with the underlying concepts that make every human body thrive.

To teach you about superfoods, how to take the most advantage of them, and how to turn them into delicious, unintimidating treats. (E.g. how to make kale actually taste good, and what to do with things like chia seeds. And what the heck is quinoa anyways?)

To teach you what supplements are completely necessary (and which ones aren’t), how they work in your body, and how to choose what is best for you so you’re not wasting money every month. Most people are severely deficient in the basic vitamins, minerals and antioxidants needed for optimum health — you’ll learn how to not be one of them.

To teach you what foods are actually poisoning you and that you should never ever eat again. (Don’t worry, it’s probably not what you think. I won’t take away your most loved foods, we might just need to find healthier ways of eating them.)

To teach you the critical importance of your digestive health and how to properly take probiotics and digestive enzymes. Your digestion affects every single system in your body — especially your immune system and skin health. Every system in your body is affected when your digestion is off. (But don’t fret, we’ll get yours running like a well-oiled machine.)

To each you how eating more can actually help you lose weight (if that’s your goal) and how no amount of gym time will get you the body you want if your nutrition is off.

To teach you how what you eat affects how you look far (far!) more than any cream, lotion or potion you can apply.

To teach you easy home cooking tips so you can whip up healthy, yummy meals at home.

To teach you the healthiest foods to choose at restaurants and parties so you can stay on the wagon.

To teach you how to stay on track when you’re traveling.

To demystify “good vs. bad” fats, carbs and proteins.

To teach you how to save money at the grocery store and how to eat healthy on a budget.

To teach you how to make easy, healthy substitutions that you’ll love; these small things can add up to huge results.

To give you recipes, recipes, and more recipes. Did I mention recipes?

To give you a very clear picture of the food-mood connection, and how our food choices affect how we feel, think and act. Every. Single. Day.

To teach you the concept of “Primary Food” (the other non-food stuff that nourishes our souls) – and the importance of seeking balance in this crazy thing we call life. How we feel greatly affects our food choices, and vice versa.

To give you an open forum to ask me anything you want — we’ll have 2 live “ask me anything” calls to get all of your questions answered on Sunday, January 8th and Sunday January 22nd.

Upon registration you’ll receive immediate access to your “Getting Started Guide” with loads of information on how to clean up your diet and life, including your suggested shopping list and resource guide to make your program a success.

Starting on February 27th, you’ll get an email from me every day for 21 days with videos, handouts, tips, action items, recipes and heart-centered vibes that will teach you everything you need to know to eat and live well. (And don’t worry, you can do everything at your own pace — you won’t be a slave to this program.) All of the content is yours to keep forever and ever.

During the 21-day event you’ll also take your AM and PM supplements and probiotics (included in the cost of your program) so you can feel the effects of what optimal levels of nutrients can do for your body.

WHAT YOU GET:

  • 21-days worth of content (as described above), delivered straight to your email inbox each morning, in the form of downloadable handouts, worksheets, audios and private, easy-to-access videos on my website. ($2,100 retail value if we did this in one-on-one coaching.)
  • Full month’s supply of customized AM & PM multivitamin + supplement packs that include my basic recommendations for vibrant health. The entire pack is pharmaceutical-grade (which is an even higher standard than organic), scientifically tested for safety of upper-limit dosages, and manufactured in an FDA-registered facility. They’re also rated #1 in North America by 3rd party studies, tested by Consumer Labs, and come in convenient AM and PM packs—no bottles to hassle with. ($199 retail value.)
  • Your packs include:
    • A complete, super-charged multivitamin to fill in the gaps of vital vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that you might be deficient in or lacking. We carefully chose a comprehensive spectrum of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to support long-term health and well-being. This exclusive formula is among the most powerful and complete vitamin and antioxidant formulas available on the market
    • A double distilled, mercury-free fish oil/omega-3 supplement for cardiovascular health (and shiney hair, pretty skin and strong nails).
    • An extra-potent anti-inflammatory grape seed extract + vitamin C supplement for immune health and anti-aging effects (on both the inside and outside of your body)
    • A resveratrol antioxidant supplement provides an extra dimension of antioxidant protection. This science-based formula contains resveratrol, alpha lipoic acid, and grape seed extract—potent antioxidants that work together synergistically. This tiny supplement contains the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in five bottles of red wine—without the hangover
    • Full month’s supply of a pharmaceutical-grade, milk-free probiotic supplement to support your digestive health ($30 retail value.)
    • 1 bag (9 servings) of a super-healthy, super-yummy meal replacement shake that you can use if you’re ever in a time crunch or on the go. This nutritious, plant-based meal replacement shake is right for just about everyone. It’s a clean, pure, vegan formula, unique for what it doesn’t contain — this shake is free of fructose, gluten, dairy, and soy. It’s packed with protein to give you sustained energy, and it has plenty of fiber to support healthy digestion ($30 retail value)
    • 1 water bottle/blender bottle to track your water consumption and shake up your shakes on the go when you need them ($9 retail value)

Your box of goodies will be delivered straight to your doorstep at no extra charge.

Optional:

You’ll also have the opportunity to continue on with your supplements at a discounted price post-program. (Yay for discounts!)

February 27th – March 20th. Online. In your email inbox. In the comfort of your own home. At your own pace.

Registration opens Monday January 23rd at 9am EST and closes Monday February 6th at 9pm EST. I truly hope you’ll join us for this life-changing event.

Pumpkin Nutrition

Pumpkin Nutrition by Sandy Spitler (Dietetic Intern)

Sandy          
Pumpkin is everywhere as the fall season comes full circle, from carving them at Halloween to the endless variety of pumpkin flavored coffee drinks, it can incorporated into almost anything you can think of. While pumpkin compliments breads, ravioli, beer, and pie, this fall squash also packs a bounty of health benefits.
Below provides evidence to why it is perfectly acceptable to obsess over pumpkin not only this fall but all year long: 
  • Pumpkin seeds help elevate moods and improve sleep  – especially needed during the fall and winter months as the weather cools down and daylight fades away. Pumpkin seeds are rich in the essential amino acid tryptophan needed in the production of serotonin – a major hormone that affects mood and sleep. Regular consumption of pumpkin may even help prevent depression.
  •  Aids in weight loss – as good source of fiber, with 3 grams per 1 cup serving, and only 50 calories, pumpkin can help you feel fuller longer, preventing you from reaching for the candy corn or indulging in a candied apple.
  •  Protects your heart – nuts and seeds, including pumpkin seeds, are naturally abundant in phytoesterols, plant-based chemicals shown to reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and blood pressure. After carving all your pumpkins, keep the seeds to roast in the oven to use as a snack or added crunch in salads.
  •  Keeps vision fine-tuned  1 cup of mashed pumpkin provides more than 200% of the recommended daily intake for vitamin A, aiding to keep your eyesight sharp.
  • May reduce risk of cancer – pumpkins are rich in carotenoids, displayed by their bright orange color, enhancing the antioxidant beta-carotene, possibly aiding to prevent cancer. These antioxidants also foster skin’s smoothness by helping to prevent wrinkles.
  •  Refuel after a tough workout – 1 cup of cooked pumpkin gives you 560 milligrams of potassium compared to a banana’s 420 milligrams. Potassium aids to restore your body’s electrolyte balance after a grueling workout allowing your muscles to perform at their best.

The endless supply of pumpkin goes hand in hand with its long list of health benefits, giving perfect reason for the obsession with this fall super-food. As the fall air cools down and winter nipping at our toes we begin searching for warm, filling, meals to fuel our bodies through.

Warm up with this comforting, delicious, and nutrient dense pumpkin chili, easily modified to please any palate:

Slow Cooker Pumpkin & Bean Chili

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 can (15oz.) black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can white northern beans, drained & rinsed
  • 3 ½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 can solid-packed pumpkin
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 4.5 oz. can chopped green chile
  • 1 cup fresh tomato, diced OR 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 avocado, sliced and used for topping
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, used for topping

 Directions:

  1. Heat medium sauté pan over high heat and add ½ teaspoon olive oil to pan
  2. Add onions then garlic to heated oil in pan and cook for 3-4 minutes
  3. Add cooked garlic and onions to crock pot followed with remaining ingredients (except for the avocado and cilantro saved for topping). Allow ingredients to cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours
  4. Top with cilantro and avocado if desired.

Tip: You may also replace 1 can of beans with ¾ lb. lean ground turkey by simply browning the turkey in sauté pan and then combine with remaining ingredients in crock pot.

A Complexion So Flawless, You Don’t Need Makeup

Shiny Full Hair That Grows So Fast, Your Friends Think You Got Extensions

A Heart So Calm and Content, People Look at You and Wonder What You Know That They Don’t

Jill ShowerReady to get started? Join me for a Beauty From The Inside Out 14-Day Jumpstart designed to help you develop healthier habits to glow from the inside out.

I am partnering with fellow health coach and my mentor Elizabeth Rider to bring you the 14-Day Beauty From The Inside Out Jumpstart! This was such a huge success last month so if you missed out now is your chance!

Message me for more information, or register here!


October 17th – October 30th

Registration closes October 10th!

Pre-Start Bonus Content is available as soon as you join.


We know how you feel. 

We’ve all looked in the mirror and at one point thought:

When did my hair start breaking like this? And why has it only grown a centimeter this month.

Why won’t my eyebrows fill in?

What’s making my skin this red? How can it be dry AND oily at the same time.

And geesh, I’m tired!

After having babies and starting a family time to focus on myself and energy to do the things I need to do are hard to come by. Some people chalk that up to getting older, but that’s just the status quo. You can get better skin, hair, nails, energy, and feel great!

Here is what I know: Beauty is an inside job. 

All beauty–physical, emotional and spiritual–starts on the INSIDE.

Every woman is beautiful. Inflammation, stress, toxins, processed food, environmental pollution, and inner negativity can prevent us from looking and feeling out best. This jumpstart will teach you to eliminate beauty burdens that prevent your natural beauty from shining through.

During this 14-Day Jumpstart you will explore how to nourish, protect and renew your cells from the inside out to support you in looking, and more importantly feeling, your best.

This jumpstart is not a deprivation-style cleanse (thank goodness!). We will focus on adding in instead of taking away to nourish, protect and renew your body at the cellular function. You will feel full instead of empty, fulfilled and not deprived.


“My skin is glowing and my nails are stronger. I feel the best I’ve felt in years!” Jessica Sances, September participant


Women Spend $426 Billion On Beauty Products Each Year (Holy Cow!)

What most women don’t understand is that what you put INTO your body far outweighs any lotion, cream or potion that you can put ON the outside. It’s time to invest more on nurturing your beauty from the inside out. And, it’s not just about what you look on the outside. All of the physical beauty in the world doesn’t do you a lick of good if you feel lousy on the inside.

You’ll receive a whole food meal plan with delicious recipes that you will love—we’ll even teach you how to modify the food plan if needed to fit into your lifestyle.

Instead of focusing on what to quit, we’re going to focus on what to add in to your daily habits to nourish, protect and renew your body at the cellular function.

Make More Antioxidants From The Inside Out

You’ll also take the most comprehensive and unique multivitamin on the market, designed not only to fill in any nutritional gaps or deficiencies, but to actually help your body produce more of it’s own antioxidants form the inside out (how cool is that?!) You’ll have stronger and longer hair & nails, more vibrant and glowing skin, and most importantly, your body will be nourished from the inside out.

And finally, you will also detox negative emotions that hold you back on a daily basis while you learn new ways to look at the world we live in.

During This Jumpstart You Will:

  • Reduce inflammation that causes puffiness

  • Grow stronger & longer hair and nails
  • Nourish your skin from the inside out
  • Hydrate your cells for a glowing complexion
  • Replenish your cells with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that most people are deficient in
  • Increase the production of your body’s own antioxidants. Your body has the ability to produce it’s own powerful antioxidants; the supplements in this program help your body do just that. More antioxidants = even more beautiful hair, skin and nails.
  • Increase your overall energy for better daily performance
  • Learn new daily habits that will help you look and feel your best
  • Focus on mental clarity for inner strength and inner beauty
  • Learn truths & myths about feminine energy that will change your life (BIG time)
  • Detox internal negativity that holds you back
  • Receive daily emails with inspirations and reminders

“I lost 5 pounds during the program & my skin feels softer. My inner calmness has increased; my anxiety level is down & my energy level is up.” Kim Zamora, September participant

“My skin is noticeably so much nicer. My new sleep routine has made a huge difference in my nightly rest giving me so much more energy and excitement to make more positive changes. There are many programs out there but only one Elizabeth Rider. She is very inspirational and relatable.” Joni Reese, September participant


In 14 short days you will look great, and FEEL EVEN BETTER.

Your jumpstart comes with a full month supply of your high-quality multivitamin, double-distilled pure fish oil supplement, vitamin D (because 90% of adults are deficient).

In addition to your new supplements and meal plan, you’ll receive a daily educational email that will show you how to live even healthier. On top of all of it, you’ll get one actionable tip or habit each day that will be easy to incorporate into your daily life.

Imagine adding one easy healthy habit each day for 14 days—by the end of our time together you will feel like an entirely new person.

“The video about Feminine Energy was so helpful. My husband and I have been married for 51 years and this helped us understand life a lot better than we ever had. You know, all the years we were working, me 38 and him 36 we never had time to think about energy — we just worked hard every single day to provide for our family, Now we get to study about this issue in depth! Thank you!” Shera Eddy, September Participant

“I think so many of us (like myself) *think* we are making healthy choices with our diets when actually we are not at all with all the processed carbs and added sugar, which I now know causes all kinds of issues we deal with regularly from acne, bloating, weight gain and energy drain. After the 14-day Beauty Jumpstart, my skin is clearer and more hydrated. I feel more rested and mindful of my diet choices throughout the day. And way less bloated! I have a much clearer picture of what it takes to obtain overall health/beauty from the inside out.” Pamela Albert, September participant
