I am always told by clients and friends that they just can’t seem to get their children to eat healthy snacks! In this class, I will make my delicious vegan, sugar and nut-free cupcakes as well as a scrumptious chocolate pudding, a vegan sugar-free banana bread, and chocolate coconut macaroons! I literally have to fend my children (as well as their friends) off when I make these recipes!
Do you have trouble deciding what to cook your families in the craziness of the early morning rush? Would you like to have a few more healthy ideas on hand, and some fail safe tips for making your morning less stressful? If so, then this class is for you. Not only will I show you how to make some of my families (and clients) favorite recipes, but I will also give you tools about how to streamline your morning routine.
Cost is $55 per class or $220 for the series of 4.

Is your pantry a mess?
Are you confused about what is and what is not healthy in your pantry?
Do you need help?
With my clients, I often find that the first step to eating healthily begins by making sure there is healthy food on hand (and that the “junk foods” are thrown out!) I will come to your home and personally walk through your pantry and give you guidance and what to throw out and what to buy. You will also be provided with a healthy shopping list.
For more information, contact me atKatherine@be-n-balance.com
Cost is $125/hr or current clients can use one session. Past Events

With the winter season in full swing, now is the perfect time to strengthen your immune system and integrate new healthy patterns into your life. In the summer, we naturally eat more fresh green vegetables and lettuces; however, in the fall and winter when we need the nutrients the most, we tend to gravitate toward more-hearty fare. While this may make us feel warm and cozy inside, all this heavy food just taxes our bodies and, eventually, we get sick. The single most important thing that we can do for ourselves this winter is to add more greens to our diets.Read more....
If you are training for your next marathon, or even just trying to enhance your running speed or stamina, add more dark, leafy greens to your diet! Yes, I said “greens,” not “protein” as you might have expected! Protein is certainly an important part of a runner’s diet with respect to building, repairing and maintaining muscle. But, so often, when I look at a client’s diet log, I see that they are loading up way too much on carbohydrates and protein, but leafy green vegetables are sorely overlooked!

This morning I took a trip to the Union Square farmer’s market to visit my favorite vendor Windfall Farms from Montgomery, NY. Windfall Farms specializes in organically grown specialty greens, micro greens and sprouts and is where many of the top chefs go to shop! My daughter and I just love going first thing on a beautiful Saturday morning and picking out gorgeous produce that is in season and supporting our local farmers! Today I was on a mission to buy sprouts! Â Before you snub your nose at sprouts, they are not just bland hippie food of years past! Sprouts have been around for thousands of years and were originally used by Ancient Chinese physicians who prescribed them to cure many disorders over 5,000 years ago. In the 1700′s, it is recorded that Captain James Cook even had his sailors eat them to prevent scurvy!Read more....
