Anyone can change their eating from scary to gorgeous for only three days. ANYBODY. That includes you.
This 3-day Mini Dump is designed to:
I am ridiculously in love with food, really good at making up recipes -- and a mama and busy business owner (so I know that simple is important).
My food journey began as a child. Watching my mama in her kitchen and garden. The way she took her time with each ingredient. She looked so zen. Honestly. The love I have for real food began by watching her.
I love food. But I've had a topsy-turvy relationship with it, too.
I was a vegetarian for many, many years. Then...An unhealthy food obsession began when I went off to study nutrition. I tried every diet, every cleanse, every detox out there. I began obsessively drinking green smoothies. I was in a constant battle with the conflicting info I received.
It took me many years to figure out that sometimes 'healthy eating' isn't all that healthy.
Sometimes nourishment is simpler than that. It starts with a love of ingredients. And it also starts with loving yourself -- and having a deep understanding of what makes you feel good -- and that you deserve that.
I stepped back and began to focus only on eating foods that made me feel good, based on the season I was in, and my own intuition. When I did my mood improved, my energy levels increased, my puffiness decreased, I lost extra pounds, my skin became clear.
Fast forward: I'm now in my 40's, I feel like I'm in my 20's, I have two beautiful (healthy) kids, a thriving business, I feel awesome, and I wake up to a sense of calm. I did this by eating real food, putting my needs in the spotlight, reducing stress, increasing my nourishment (in all ways), and creating the life I want -- BUT STILL...ENJOYING THE HELL OUT OF MY FOOD.
I began running the Community Dumps because I saw a similar and dangerous cycle in others: unsafe juice cleansing and extreme fasting, an all-or-nothing, no pain-no-gain attitude that left people confused, HUNGRY, exhausted and nutrient deficient. I saw people suffering for months after a well-intentioned detox or "healthy food" plan. Why was no one talking about this? Why was everyone eating food that tasted bland or looked like sludge? Ew!
I took my extensive skill and passion in the kitchen to create something fun and unique – where people don't have to go at this food journey alone, a food program that is safe, and delicious, and do-able. I’ve spent years developing these cleanses, using the seasons to guide me, taking different constitutions into account. And now I've taken it one step further...
I help people like YOU adapt to a way of eating that feels good ALL the time! This is my passion. xo
