Making the switch to being Vegan was one of the best things I have ever decided to do. When you fuel your body with fresh, alive foods, your neural receptors are constantly being cleansed and the result is increased clarity and heightened awareness. Food is fuel!
I am so passionate about this course because I struggled with my body and with food for years. I would constant cheat my diet or have some excuse as to why I deserved something sugary. I was never obese, but I was extremely strict and hard on myself. For years I put self hate into my body and when I finally was sick and tired and fed up with the emotional and mental havoc, I made the change and never looked back. I thought it was going to be hard to switch over, but its actually been such an expansive experience to learn about new foods and how to cook in new ways.
In this course I will share some of the best vegan recipes that I enjoy regularly.

If we challenge our previous conditioning too quickly it will revolt against us. What currently exists within you as a thought form wants to continue to exist. It doesn't want to die.

In this week we will evaluate where we can leverage change without the ego having a tantrum.
