About the event

Cooking for one! 

 I hear plenty of struggles out there about this topic. So many single or widowed people who feel like cooking for one is depressing, or not “worth” the effort, or more expensive than eating out, etc. And hey, I’ll be the first to admit that at times any of those things can sometimes be true.  

Taking care to prepare a meal for yourself is a different experience than cooking for others. It can be a fun, casual, and (of course) delicious affair, but there are challenges, from avoiding a fridge full of half-used ingredients to ending up with leftovers that become boring after the third reheat.  

Let's look at the bright side and think of the perks for cooking for one:  *Cook exactly what you want  *Cook when you want  

*No stress about catering (literally) to someone else’s cravings or preferences or special diets 

 *Can have an epic dance party to Taylor Swift in your PJ's  

*Can cook up egg drop soup for the third night in a row without a care in the world of anyone else watching (or, um, judging)  

*You can experiment and try new dishes and ingredients and put in the time to learn some new skills.  And hey, if the meal goes down in flames (hopefully not literally) as an epic flop, you don’t have to worry about having ruined anyone else’s dinner!  

Ingredient list will be given out. 

We can prep here but cooking will be done at home

 * Split Pea Soup For One(DF, GF) or Broccoli cheddar soup for one(GF)  

*Greek Chicken Bowl or Pad Thai For One or Salmon Rice Bowl  

*Lemon Meringue Pie or Apple muffin for one   

Feedback from some of our last participants:  *You two should do a podcast, the information is soo helpful. -Cynthia  *What are your biggest takeaways from this course? Wellness is best achieved through developing lifelong healthy habits. I need to be kinder to myself – take time to rest. -Amber   6wk challenge available - please email for details

I am a firm believer that we need to spend more time outdoors to heal!! I have played competitive sports all my life and still do today. Running has always been part of my training and I was Arizona State Champion in 300 Hurdles & 800 M moving on to attend National Qualifying Meet. I have a fun easy going spirit and love to encourage the family aspect of training.

I focus a lot on mobility and ensuring we all learn how to move all of our joints for better range of motion and less injury. I love teaching in many areas and first and foremost teach core engagement. I am versed in teaching these types of classes: pilates, aquafit, bootcamp, piyo, HIIT, kickboxing, office exercises for better posture, and really enjoy working with those over 50. I have a great connection with them and I find they are not always looking for the newest fad on social media feed and are very loyal :) I love teaching barefoot in a nature setting as I feel we all need to escape the digital world we are in and learn to develop all the great muscles in our feet.

For mindful eating(nutrition), my journey has been on a steady incline to BETTER I would say. First 15 yrs of my working career was in field engineering for Schlumberger and then GE. On the go style eating(eating out more than I was eating home cooked food but I did take along a lot of cans of tuna lol. I recall a coworker once telling me a style of eating he was doing, which was basically anti inflammatory. I had my food sensitivity test done by a naturopath and it was smooth sailing if I ate according to it and not over eat(especially in particular carb area). I am fascinated how the body can be so healthy by our food choices. I am now getting my diploma in Sports Nutrition so I can help my clients even more :)

After suffering a burnout (the result of being consumed by my career), I was forced to make some serious changes in order to SAVE my life. I had to take (and continue to do so!) a long and deep look at myself and ask "who am I" and "what do I want". This led to a shift in priorities and freedom that I am grateful for every day!  I love to practice and promote self-care in many forms (more than bubble baths and manicures, although those are important, too!). A few of them you might see me doing are dance, Yoga, Rest, Day Trips, cooking, gardening, reading, Poundfit, and slowing down to think, celebrate, and enjoy life. You know, all the stuff we say we WANT to do but don't make time for.  I MAKE time for it and would love to share how you can, too.  My biggest challenge is the commitment <-> abandonment cycle that occurs when I implement rigidity into my journey.  My continuous goal is to be in flow, listening to my body and continuing to recover to a healthy state of loving myself well so I can love others well.
