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

For most of you who know my writings and my work, the title of this article may come as a surprise to you. But, I have been thinking a lot lately about my role as a mother and how I can best feed and develop healthy eating habits (as well as life habits) for my children—not just for now but for the long haul! Does forcing my son, Oliver, to eat his grilled cheese sandwich instead of allowing him to just grab an apple and a yogurt really serve him well? Is it even more nutritiousRead 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!

Contrary to what many of you might think or have been led to believe by well-meaning health professionals or manufacturers of low fat foods, I have an important secret to tell you- eating “fat” does not make you fat!Â Counting calories does not make you skinnier either but we will leave that for another article!!!
Americans spend 54 billion dollars on diet products and seem to be on non-stop low-fat, low-carb, and low calorie diets yet we are getting fatter as a nation with 71.6 million Americans considered obese according to the American Heart Association! We spend 100 billion dollars on health care yet we are reaching near epidemics with respect to cancer, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
