SHIFT into Fall with a Plan that Works

As human beings, we live our lives negotiating our values and principles. Studies have shown that exercise and nutrition are the first things to go when life gets challenging. As a result, we feel deficient in self-care – a critical component of our overall emotional and physical wellbeing.

Declaring deficiency sounds like this:

  • I’m so uncomfortable in my body.
  • I overeat.
  • I over drink.
  • I can’t stop the cravings.
  • I’m too tired to get to class.
  • I’m embarrassed to show up for class feeling less than.
  • I’m too busy to start my day with breakfast.

Sound familiar?

Now, imagine putting yourself first for four weeks. How would you feel? Here’s your opportunity to do it!

What Others are Saying about the Program

The SCW & Bar program completely changed how I looked at food. I learned to appreciate what I put in my body, without just eating as a necessity. While doing the 30 day program, in conjunction with taking 4 Bar classes per week, I felt empowered and strong My mind was clear and my body changed dramatically. I never felt better and I look forward to giving it another go!

– Jenna Smith, 40

I loved The Bar Method and SCW shift program last time it was offered! Jen M. taught me the importance of paying attention to what I eat, listening to my body, and learning to take care of myself, both physically and emotionally. Bar Method has taught me the power of positivity. The teachers and clients are an amazing community. I love what this program has done for my mind and body.

Can You Really Cleanse & EAT Fat Too….?

Could there be a healthy fat?

Oh yes there can…

It’s called Ghee….

It looks like butter, it’s made with butter, it kind of smells like butter, so how healthy can ghee really be?

Ghee traditionally used in Indian cooking and is commonly referred as clarified or drawn butter. One tablespoon of ghee is equal to 4 tablespoons of butter.

“Ghee is made from a natural source which is butter, and because of the way it’s prepared, the lactose and milk protein content is so minimal…making it better tolerated by those with dairy sensitivities”… -Ari Patel

I absolutely LOVE ghee’s benefits…

  • Ghee possesses butyric acid, which actually decrease inflammation in parts of the body, particularly your gut and aids in nutrient absorption
  • High in healthy Omega 3 oil which can help decrease your levels of unhealthy cholesterol.
  • Ghee is easily digestible for this with dairy intolerance concerns…what more can I say!

I have been experimenting with ghee for the last year, and have found many recipes that include its deliciousness!!! My favorite to put a teaspoon in my morning oatmeal….OMG!!!!

I have included many recipes with Ghee in my Deep Dive Winter Cleanse. Ghee is the perfect accessory for that comfort and warmth we all crave in the winter season….kind of like a warm cozy blanket! A little healthy fat always curbs my sugar cravings!

You can find grass-fed ghee at your local food store, and to boot it does not have to be refrigerated, since there is no dairy, and essentially is a healthy fat.

Please remember Ghee is an addition to a Simple Clean and Whole healthy lifestyle since it is a fat…everything in balance & moderation!!!
