Success Story: So Much More Than Food

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Beth. When I initially signed up to work with her my only issue (so I thought) was weight control. Little did I know that I would be diving in deeper than the weight issue and really begin to work on the whole me instead of just one area. Beth’s approach to weight control is much different than any I’ve seen. Instead of giving you a long list of what NOT to eat, she begins slowly by adding one healthy food group TO EAT at a time. She comes to our meeting with a new “goodie” each week and recipes for that food group. She has given me shopping tips as well as tips for creating harmony in my busy life.

Recipe: White Bean Arugula Salad with Honey-Mustard Dressing

Beans are a rich source of protein, fiber, minerals including iron, potassium, and magnesium, and vitamins like folate. They also contain phytochemicals like flavonoids, anti-oxidants that help the body avoid oxygen-related damage. Their health benefits include blood-sugar maintenance, cancer-prevention, and promoting heart health. Beans can also play an important role in weight management, as they provide lots of satisfying “bulk” without a lot of calories.

Quinoa is considered to be a “superfood,” having such a well balanced amino acid profile that it is considered a complete protein.

This makes it a great food for those who suffer from migraines, diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. It is also a rich source of fiber, which can provide protection against a variety of cancers, gallstones and diabetes.
