From sick and tired to Feeling GREAT- Client review

I owe a big thanks to Lucinda for helping me get on the path to a healthier me! I first started seeing Lucinda because I just needed some advice on how to boost my immune system. I had gone through a rough couple of months with illness, and several rounds of antibiotics, and was sick and tired of being sick and tired! Lucinda helped me change things through small and simple steps. As I started to feel better, I was ready to do more, and before I knew it I was eating a clean healthy diet, exercising several times each week, and (gasp!) drinking kombucha every day (I didn’t think that was something I was ever going to do)! I feel great, and the added benefit is that in five months I lost 28

Being Kind to Kim: Binge Eating - the TRUTH!

"Mouthful after mouthful. No stopping, not even to sit down. Marge stands at the kitchen counter tasting the cold, rich chocolate, the sweet whipping cream melting into it.

Finding Joy- Food Prep

Hello Everyone! I have had a lot of fun talking about my meal preparation and I'd like to wish everyone a great big thank you to everyone that participated in our contest. We are very excited that in the next few weeks we will have some fun with our winner - Maureen Harper! This week I wanted to share a bit more about my prep and what inspires me. This week was all about SALSA! I have been talking about fermenting (if you haven't been to one of Lucinda's classes I highly recommend it!) and wanted to make some salsa as I love fresh salsa so much. That turned into a taco themed lunch menu. This is proving to be a lot of fun. I get to have the foods that I love and I'm making enough that my fam
