OK – reality check… before I sound too pious here, I need to confess that, yes, I drink coffee and, damn it, I love my chocolate, plus I’ve been known to inhale a big bowl of pasta, and mostly I LOVE my wine. But, the great thing is: I’ve found the perfect balance, and it’s working beautifully. I’m still slim and trim, full of energy, and people do a double-take when I divulge my age.
Over the years, I also discovered that it’s not just my love of cooking and how a plant-based diet makes me feel that matter to me. I’ve gradually developed a deep connection to the environment and to all animal life, and now realize a vegan diet simply makes sense to me on all levels. I love to spend time in nature (gardening, swimming, paddling, hiking, running, walking my dog) and I want my lifestyle to reflect that love.
My transition to a heart-centered, plant-based diet took many years, and I’ve had time to hone my skills, discover what works and what doesn’t, and learn how to fuel with food for maximum energy. With some gentle persuasion, even my very active husband has adopted vegan recipes into his diet. Over the last 15 years I’ve also integrated Yoga into my life and refined how to eat, think and move to look younger than my calendar age. I’ve stayed slim and fit and staved off many of the ‘normal’ signs of aging.
I’m on a mission to share my knowledge so other women can benefit from my lifetime of learning and can adopt changes in their diet and lifestyle right now (without the 30-year journey!) I’ll shorten the learning curve for you, and with baby steps you’ll see and feel incredible results in no time flat.
Through the study and practice of Yoga and natural nutrition, my passion for cooking, and mostly sharing and inspiring others through what I’ve learned; I created Powerful Woman Boot Camp programs, opened my own yoga studio, created my signature 12-Day Cleanse, created and hosted three Yoga TV shows, coached thousands of people over the years to eat more plants and live with passion, transforming their lives with weight loss, control of blood pressure and cholesterol levels, reversal of diabetes symptoms and the ‘magical’ disappearance of life-long skin ailments.
But the greatest success story of all is that my Mom, upon reaching the tender age of 78 and beginning to succumb to the vagaries of aging, finally saw the light and adopted a vegan diet (literally overnight). Now, it brings me incredible joy to watch her actually getting stronger as she ages! It’s taken a long time, but we’ve come full circle.
And, if she can do it, so can you. It’s never too late. So, if you’re ready to finally get on the right path to the best life ever, to feel and look youthful, beautiful and energized, I’m here to help.
Let’s get started now!
