Real Soul Food (April 2018)
Who It's For:
Are you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and pulled in a million directions? Does it feel like everyone always needs you but you're running out of "you" to give? Has putting the needs of others before yours for so long worn you down, physically, emotionally & mentally?
Sounds like it's time to fill your cup, mama! This course is just what you need!
No judgment, extreme rules or restrictions, pressure to change or expectations. Just nourishing programming, positivity, & good vibes!
How It Works
This 28-day course will give you what you need to make a series of small yet impactful changes that will lead you to a new place of healthier balance.
Together, we'll carve out the time you need to nourish your mind, body & soul, with a set of sustainable, simple habits. Don't worry, it's totally do-able -- no weekends in the kitchen, epic meditation sessions or chanting required!
Weekly meal plans featuring loads of new (& old) simple, satisfying and delicious comfort food recipes & shopping lists make prep manageable. Short daily motivational lessons & exercises inspire you to make the incremental changes you need to find a happier, healthier place of balance.
Give me 15 minutes a day, and I'll give you the roadmap & tools to re-discover, then nurture, your best you: body, soul & mind!
What Women Are Saying About Soul Food:
I’m feeling more balanced. I’m being generally much kinder to myself. And being more conscious of my thinking & patterns. I feel more focused and like I have the tools & the power within myself to achieve balance and “roll with the punches” better than ever!I loved the videos. Every day I looked forward to my Wendy ‘pep’ talk because really it was always interesting & uplifting! The questions enhanced my thinking and overall learning on the specific topic of the day. I’m going to re-watch all the videos and make notes this time. - C.D.
I really enjoyed the videos and your feedback to the questionnaires, it gives the program a more personal touch. I like that each daily lesson provides the opportunity to take 15 min each day for myself, something I will miss with completion of the course. I like that you share your personal struggles and truths, it makes you human and lets us know we are not alone. - L.S
I’ve learned that I am not alone in this quest to find more meaning in life! I am so much more aware of my thoughts & am trying to change those thoughts to positive ones. I have worked with you for many years on changing my eating habits and it has brought me to a different place health-wise, however there were a few pieces missing and this program really brought it all together for me! - D.B.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have access to the course?
Forever! Once you've enrolled and paid, you'll have access to the course material for as long as you need. So devour it all in one weekend or take things slow. It's your choice! Just remember, the online support group will wrap up after the 28 days.
What if I'm away for work or vacation for part of the program?
No problem! You can continue watching the daily lessons while you're away or hit the "personal pause" button until you're back - your choice. You have access to the lessons & meal plans forever and can therefore work through the course at your own pace, as well as revisit any of them whenever you need a refresher!
Can I ask questions if I have them, and how fast will you respond?
Of course! Post them in the online group (and tag me so I'm sure to see them) or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd rather not make them public. Up to you! Either way, I'll respond quickly, I promise.
What if I avoid certain foods due to allergies or intolerances, will this Program work for me?
Yes! The meal plans are super-flexible, and I'm used to catering to dietary restrictions so I can easily provide substitutions or even a few extra recipes that suit your needs if you need them. Just let me know if you need help modifying the meal plan!
I'm breastfeeding. Is this a safe & healthy program for me?
You betcha! This program is nutritionally-dense & balanced. Make sure you stay nice & hydrated with lots of water and be sure to eat what you need to feel satisfied. If you have questions or concerns as you follow the programming, just let me know!
What if I work shift work or have other responsibilities that make weekend & weeknight prep tricky?
I've got your back. Prep can happen whenever you can reasonably fit it in, whether that's Sunday morning or Wednesday night. You know better than me when that is and can plan for it accordingly. The meal plans are very flexible - if it's a busy night, turn to leftovers or choose a real fast food option.
Is this family-friendly? I don't want to be making different meals for different family members.
Would I do that to you? ;) Like all my programming, I aim to provide family-friendly, flexible programming.
I'm cooking for just one or two people most nights. Will this work for me?
Yes! You'll probably just need to spend a whole lot less time in your kitchen, because after the first week you'll have a nice freezer stash built up. Most of my meals will easily feed 4-6 people, so you'll be able to make use of leftovers for lunch and freeze extras for a busy night down the road.
Will I lose weight with this Program?
This is not a focussed weight loss program, but, as always, my recipes & meal plans are balanced and will support healthy weight loss when combined with mindful eating strategies (which are a focus in the course) along with mindful portions. If you feel you need more focussed weight loss support, I suggest you consider my Online Real Food Weight Loss program, details & registration here: www.simple-balance.ca/members
