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

The topic of weight issues in children is such a hot one! People have been asking me for months to write an article on this, but I have been reticent about it because it is such a touchy subject and really delves into our role and responsibilities as parents. It all came to light one day—into complete focus actually—that I had a problem in my own backyard. I was at one stressful ballet tryout (yes, you know the one) for my 6-year-old daughter, and my adorable daughter (I am biased) was standing with all the other little girls in her pink ballet leotard. And there was no denying it. She had gotten (how should I say this nicely?) chubby. All you mothers out there will probably want to throw stones at me and ask how I could say that about my daughter.Read more....
It always amazes me that athletes will scrutinize their diets with a fine tooth comb and then use processed sports products packed with fructose and even high fructose corn syrup to boost their performance during – and replenish after – strenuous workouts! When we use sugar and other carbohydrates to temporarily boost our performance, we may see immediate effects, but in the long term this creates a roller coaster ride that is not good for our bodies. So, what do I recommend and personally use to replenish electrolytes after a tough workout? Coconut water!

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.
