You've struggled with weight all your life.

  • You can't seem to take off those last 5 lbs no matter how clean you eat.

  • You have to eat less and stricter than your friends to lose or maintain weight.

Why should I do this cleanse?

If you missed any part of Wednesday’s Live Q&A chat about The S.H.E.D. – my all-new 30-Day Detox to Heal and Reveal the Optimal You . . .

You can still access the recording and hear lots of really smart questions get answered, plus get all the information you need to help you decide if participating in The S.H.E.D. is the right opportunity for you.

Click here for immediate access: https://shed.nutritionworksofcolorado.com/shed

When you listen you’ll discover:

- What our bodies and psyches stand to gain from detoxing.
- Signs and symptoms you may be experiencing that are strong indicators of whether a detox would be particularly beneficial to you.
- Who The S.H.E.D. is ideally suited for (and who it’s not for).
- What the differences are between The S.H.E.D. detox program and others you may be considering . . . and much more.

Why The S.H.E.D. is SO much more than your typical detox!

I know there are a LOT of cleanse and detoxes out there - especially right now. I can’t speak to all of them but I can tell you why ours is different.....and important for your health.

1. We use a medical grade product ONLY available through qualified health professionals. It’s NOT an off-the-shelf kit that has no clinical testing for safety, purity and proof of efficacy.

2. The detox product in combination with real, wholesome food is specifically designed to help your body through phase 1 & phase 2 detoxification. SUPER important for those of you who have compromised detoxification pathways or are MTHFR (you know who you are - if not, I can test you or tell you how to get tested).

3. Through this process, we will help you identify potential health conditions that could be supported nutritionally or clinically - such as thyroid disorder, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, food allergies/sensitivities, metabolic disorder, etc. Because we are Functional Nutritionists, we know what to watch for and can support most conditions.

4. We will encourage you to eat food! Yes, real, healthy, nutrient dense food to support your hormones, repair your body and learn that food is not the enemy!

5. We will provide you with ridiculously good recipes for each week of our detox so you can focus on other things than trying to figure out what eat right now. Don’t worry, you’ll have this piece nailed by the end. In the beginning though, let us do the work for you.

6. We will help you create, define and commit to your 2019 health, nutrition and personal/professional goals - from a place of peace, not fear. Many of us set goals because we are afraid of what “might” happen if we don’t. I’m going to teach you how to create these based on WHAT you want, not what you DON’T want. It’s soooo much easier this way!

7. When you create your exciting and inspiring goals, I’m going to show you how to keep working them, no matter what life throws at you or what that little voice in your head try’s to tell you (which is usually bullshit based on a story we create of something that actually hasn’t even happened - we lovingly call this the “bullshit-vortex”).

8. Because this cleanse will address every area of your life, not just what you eat. It will be more than a way to loose weight. More than typical starvation or restriction detoxes (the exact opposite actually). More than you ever expected from a detox. I want you to raise the bar on what you think it may be and then raise it as high as you can. THIS is why you deserve to do The S.H.E.D. - because you are important and you deserve the best.

*This program is not for everyone. We respect that and understand that. We designed this for people wanting to get off the diet roller coaster. It’s for those of you who have tried every damn diet out there and still haven’t found “the one” - the one that allows you to eat food freely. The one that doesn’t shame you. The one that teaches you what your body needs and when it needs it. It’s for those who want to understand the deep “why” to what they do, how they operate and get lasting results with tools that can be used over and over again - in all areas of your life.

If this speaks to you, please join us January 11th for The S.H.E.D.

Broccoli-Quinoa Cheesy Casserole

Broccoli-Quinoa-Casserole.jpg

With fall presenting itself and temps dropping, I naturally move to heartier foods like this casserole. I’m personally not a vegetarian anymore, but I do appreciate a meal free of animal protein on occasion. With that said, I’ve made this recipe with and without grilled chicken breast and both are equally a delicious!

*note- I replace whole wheat bread for GF bread and always use full-fat milk products.

A huge shout-out to COOKIE + kate at https://cookieandkate.com/ for this recipe!

  • Prep Time: 15 mins

  • Cook Time: 45 mins

  • Total Time: 1 hour

  • Yield: 6 servings

  • Method: Cooked and baked

  • Cuisine: Vegetarian

Broccoli casserole made better with roasted fresh broccoli, cheddar cheese, creamy quinoa and irresistible, garlicky gluten free bread crumbs. This healthy casserole is easy to make and tastes amazing! Recipe yields 6 to 8 servings.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water

  • 1 cup quinoa (any color), rinsed under running water in a mesh sieve for a minute and drained

  • 16 ounces broccoli florets, either pre-packaged or sliced from 2 large bunches of broccoli

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 10 twists of freshly ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, omit if sensitive to spice

  • 8 ounces (about 2 ½ cups) freshly grated white cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1 cup full-fat milk (cow’s milk tastes best but unsweetened plain almond milk works, too)

  • ½ tablespoon butter or 1 ½ teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

  • 1 slice gluten free bread

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

  2. To cook the quinoa: Bring the vegetable broth or water to boil in a heavy-bottomed, medium-sized pot. Add the quinoa, reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 17 to 20 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed. Cover and set aside to steam for 10 minutes.

  3. To roast the broccoli: Slice any large broccoli florets in half to make bite-sized pieces. Transfer the broccoli to your prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, until lightly coated on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and arrange in a single layer. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the broccoli is tender and starting to caramelize on the edges.

  4. To make the breadcrumbs: Tear your piece of bread into bite-sized pieces and toss them into a food processor or blender. Process until the bread has broken into small crumbs. In a small pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, stirring often. Add the bread crumbs and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly browned and crisp. Set aside to cool. (If you cooked your bread crumbs in a cast iron skillet, transfer them to a bowl to prevent them from burning.)

  5. Reduce the oven heat to 350 degrees. Add the salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to the pot of quinoa, and stir to combine. Set aside ¾ cup of the cheese for later, then add the rest of the cheese to the pot. Pour in the milk and stir until the cheese and milk are evenly incorporated in the quinoa.

  6. Pour the cheesy quinoa into a 9-inch square baking dish and top with the roasted broccoli. Stir until the broccoli is evenly mixed in with the quinoa. Sprinkle the surface of the casserole with the reserved ¾ cup cheese, then sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top.

  7. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes, until the top is golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
