Metamorphosis body mind spirit Audrey Martin reviewed Deb’s Healthy Plate — 5 star

“Attended the 3 Day Detox Cleanse class. I found it very informative and pleasant. Very casual and comfortable atmosphere and Debbie took the time to answer all my question. I left there feeling very energized and motivated. Can’t wait to start the detox and look forward to the other classes Debbie has to offer.”

“I attended the 3 day detox cleanse lecture that Deb gave. Deb has so much knowledge to share. She was very thorough with conveying the information and took time to answer questions. Such a positive experience.”

Spring or any season can be the season of renewal, a fresh start, a new beginning, which makes this time of year perfect for a gentle detox that will reset your body and mind while priming you for getting your healthy back. Whether you overdid it over the holidays, are feeling bloated or achy now, want to lose a few pounds or just feel better in your body.  You will definitely feel better after this 3 Day Plan which you can do at your convenience after I explain it to you.  Spring is not the only time our bodies need a detox.  If you are feeling bloated, sluggish, have brain fog or just need to get back on track after a vacation or the holidays, your body will benefit from a detox/cleanse.

Detoxifying through your diet doesn’t have to mean fasting, and if done periodically, is one of the best ways to maintain lasting health and wellness.

Here are 3 reasons to do a gentle detox cleanse any time of year:

  • Transition your body from heavy winter foods to seasonal, lighter spring foods
  • Boost your mood, energy, and productivity by reducing inflammation
  • Shed excess weight and eliminate toxins to feel light and fresh any time of year
  • Get rid of bloat and clear your skin

— If you have suggestions for Children’s Cooking Classes feel free to share. I am always happy to offer new ideas., 7/11/2014 – My daughter and I were both diagnosed with autoimmune diseases. Through better food choices and lifestyle changes, we were able to overcome debilitating aspects associated with the diseases of Lupus  and Hashimoto’s disease. My background as a Nutritional Health and Life Coach and Personal Chef, gave me the opportunity to treat our diseases naturally and holistically with whole foods and healthier meals.

The role of your immune system is to protect you from disease and infection. With autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and Hashimoto’s, your immune system is confused and attacks healthy cells in your body. There are over 80 types of autoimmune diseases, but all involve inflammation, so foods and diets that lessen inflammation are helpful in controlling these disorders.

Let’s face it many of us don’t eat healthy. Many people are not even sure what it really means to eat healthy. I used to work for a weight loss company and thought I was eating healthy. We walk up and down the aisles of the supermarket and see “Healthy”, “Fat Free”, “Gluten-free”, “Lean”, “Sugar-free” and the list goes on. Don’t be fooled by the labels. In my book I teach you how my daughter and I reclaimed our health and I have included many healthy and delicious recipes the whole family will love from breakfast to dessert.

This book is so much more than a cookbook!

Here is a testimonial written by my daughter, “The transformation from being weak, sick, miserable and nauseous is nothing less than miraculous! The person I am today is the complete opposite. That’s who I was 5 years ago. NOW I AM THRIVING! I couldn’t enjoy anything life had to offer. My days were spent in bed and at doctors. I was overwhelmed with sickness and suffering from Lupus inflammation and not being able to urinate on my own without a catheter. I had to have a Medtronic device implanted into my body to stimulate my bladder and was on dozens of meds. I was losing hope.Then my angel took matters into her own hands and began my healing by going to school to learn an alternative to the meds that were not helping. That angel is my mother to whom I am forever grateful. She educated herself and then me to eat naturally.” Sondra

These are some of the titles of the chapters in my book:

* Reclaim Your Health Body, Mind and Spirit

* Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Lupus

* Eat Real Food Not Something This Is Like Real Food

* Good, Better, Best

* Juicing and Smoothies

* We are All Individual

* What Is A Health Coach?

* Daily Meal Suggestions

* It May NOT Be What You Are Eating. It May Be What’s Eating YOU!

* Eating Out Healthier

* Some of My Favorite Restaurants

* Sodium Is Good For Your Body…In Moderation

* Gluten Intolerance

* Should You Use Grape Seed Oil or Olive Oil?

* Close to 100 recipes for Breakfast to Dessert your whole family will love from eggs, to grains, soups and salads, chicken, turkey, beef and fish and several gluten-free meals.
