Improvising in the Kitchen: The easy path to emphasizing vegetables

 This program is designed to support you in making the transition from a meat-centered diet to a diet emphasizing vegetables. It is the ideal first step on the journey to becoming vegetarian if that’s what you’d like to do.

The six week journey is also about exploring playfulness. Playfuless is a powerful path to loosening the grip of the ego and setting yourself free from the prison of cursing life. 

For some, the program changes their relationship to vegetables, starting with feeling comfortable with them and becoming just as confident in a veggie ktichen as in any other kitchen. 

The program provides you with a road map for getting from where you are now in your meat-to-vegetables daily intake to a new ratio. The program supports you in establishing new routines to make the transition easy and natural.

At the end of the program you might decide you’re happy with two veggie meals a week and stay at that plateau. Or you might want to up it a notch. Some clients leapfrog to 3 or 4 meals on their own after being introduced to the gradual approach I provide.

For some, this program opens up a whole new vision of possibilities and inspires care for the body in other realms, beyond nutrition.

You’ll meet with me via Zoom for four consecutive weeks. In between each coaching session, you’ll integrate new eating habits into your weekly routine. You’ll receive two new recipes each week as part of the program.

If you choose to take this to a deeper level, you’ll have opportunities to notice your relationship to food and to self-nurturing. Still, the primary focus is to provide you with training wheels to help you get started on this transition to your eating habits, the transition away from meat and toward vegetables.

 

If you generally prepare non-vegetarian dinners seven nights a week, this program assists you to initially establish a habit of cooking vegetarian twice a week. When the program ends, you’ll be offered continued support with a check in call a month later.

If you’d like to start your journey from a meat-based diet to a plant-based diet by taking small baby steps, one after another, instead of trying to switch overnight, this program is for you. The program is designed to make it easy for you to win. It allows you to transition away form old eating habits to new habits gradually.

Private Coaching

 My favorite metaphor for what I do is this: Possibility Whisperer.

My truest passion is holding the space for people to sense more possibilities for themselves. We’re all unique, so we all have a unique range of possibilities. And we are all attracted to different “flavors” of possibilities. We need to listen to our hearts–our hearts know instinctively and intuitively which possibilities have our name written on them.

For years I was my own worst enemy. I disparaged my body and mind, my capacities and my unique self.  Now I celebrate who I am, both as a human and as a soul. 

Now I introduce my clients to exercises and processes I’ve designed to help bring awareness to deep patterns so that they can be loosened and released. 

And there’s more. Clients are provided with a chance not only to release what isn’t serving them, but also to bring their attention to the inner treasures of their souls. Clients are invited to commit to embracing and honoring the beauty within the heart. And to practice doing so, to form a new habit.

The way is opened for moving forward in a new direction–the direction of cultivating inner harmony. This is the dawning of authentic happiness and fulfillment. For joy, fulfillment and authentic happiness are the byproducts of alignment and harmony.

Appreciating Life: Setting the inner sails toward joy

 Are your inner sails set to keep you in a place of discord and resistance? Mine were for many years. I walked around New York City and jealousy rose up within whenever I saw men waiting with their boyfriend, poised to buy tickets for a movie. I was swimming in the soup of bitterness every day.

For some, bitterness and jealousy get in the way. For others it is self-pity. There are many variations on this theme.

There is nothing more simple or basic than appreciating life.. What if we are all designed with the capacity to appreciate our beauty ad the beauty of others? What if other ego-bound ways of relating to the wolrd are learned along the way?

In many cases these learned attitude, dispositions and behaviors overshadow our innate capacity–our inborn proclivity–for appreciating life and being grateful.

Take a moment now to notice moments in your life when your natural inclination to appreciate beauty or nobility in yourself or in another or in nature was in the driver’s seat, a moment when this joie de vivre and celebration was not eclipsed by judgment or comparison.

Maybe it was a moment of hearing the mot exquisite music Or finding yourself before a painting that captured your heart. (When I was 17, I couldn’t take my eye away fron a nature scene by the Impressionist, Corot–I instantly fell in love with the artist.)

Every day brings a fresh opportunity for swiming in the pool of appreciating life and saying Yes to the new moment and being humbly grateful to the One for birthing you with the capacity to give and receive love.

This four-week probrm will provide you with practice for pushing your row boat out of the weeds in the swamp into the calm harbor where you won’t get entangled with the ego’s game quite so much. Here you will discover how easy it can be to set aside judgmental self-talk and shift into neutrality.

Whether you are new to the spiritual journey or just stuck in old patterns and habits, this program an empower you to leave the snags and trapdoors behind and start over, fresh and anew. It is never too late to begin again.

 

Can deeply ingrained habits of self-judgment really be changed?

The science is in and debilitating habits can be replaced with new habits of thought.

Five coaching sessions may not seem like much. However, homework assignments are given each week. Consistently giving a little time to cultivating a new habit over the course of six weeks can establish a new outlook on life.

My exercises provide a chance for new insights to emerge–insights that can shift one’s way of relating to oneself and one’s circumstances.
