Vegan Lifestyle Coaching

Vegan Lifestyle Coaching
Converting to a plant-based diet can sometimes be overwhelming.  It’s important to learn how to gain the best possible nutrition, and to be assured that you are not missing anything important, as you will be giving up all the harmful foods that cause disease, and adopting a new diet that will enhance your health and your life.

Whether you want to transition to veganism permanently, or integrate healthier plant-based habits into your life…. I can help you take that step. Going vegan is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself, the environment, and the planet.

Through one-on-one coaching, I can offer a solution regimen designed specifically for your individual needs and lifestyle, and the support you need to integrate comprehensive changes for life. All coaching sessions are currently set-up via live webcam/virtual.

My coaching service fee is $30.00 an hour for the first hour, and $15.00 for each additional 15 minute increments thereafter.

Spring-Time Wellness Newsletter

Spring is a time of renewal… of saying goodbye to the old and opening up to the new. The days are a little longer, the air is a little warmer, and new life is popping up everywhere. Letting go of the things in our lives that no longer serve or support us - whether it be relationships that drain us or excess items that create clutter in our homes and lives - can be challenging, but is always rewarding. It allows us to realign and prepare for the new season ahead.

With this shedding of the heaviness of winter and all of its comfort-driven eating, we get to welcome the spring harvest.  It brings us green vegetables of every shade to detoxify our bodies and help us feel lighter from within.  It’s the perfect time to remove any unhealthy habits that may have taken root and swing back into a cleaner eating routine.

With farmer’s markets in full swing again, and fresh produce readily available, spring is one of the easiest times of year to start incorporating more plants into your diet. Asparagus, peas, fennel, radishes, and spinach are just a few of the many highlights of the season. They all make excellent additions to your power plates and power bowls. They will boost your energy and health, while satisfying your taste buds.

What is a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet

What is a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet?

A whole-food, plant-based diet is based on the following principles:

* Whole-Food describes natural foods that are not heavily processed. That means whole, unrefined, or minimally refined ingredients.
* Plant-Based means food that comes from plants and doesn't include animal ingredients/bi-product such as meat, milk, eggs, or honey.
A whole-food, plant-based diet lets you meet your nutritional needs by focusing on natural, minimally-processed plant foods.

The Benefits of a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet

There are several major benefits to moving to plant-based nutrition, all supported by excellent science.

These benefits include:

* Easy Weight Management: People who eat a plant-based diet tend to be leaner than those who don't, and the diet makes it easy to lose weight, and keep it off - without counting calories.
* Disease Prevention: Whole-food, plant-based eating can prevent, halt, or even reverse chronic diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, etc.
* A Lighter Environmental Footprint: A plant-based diet places much less stress on the environment. As a plant-based meal company, we care deeply about our environmental footprint. We're proud to say that our packaging is 100% recyclable.
