Have a Pumpkin Spice Latte—On Me

If you’ve ever read my blog or used my cookbooks or worked with me privately, you know that I am not a fan of Starbucks’ flavored coffee and tea drinks. (Well, it’s not just Starbucks…. I don’t love any of the flavored coffee or tea drinks from Dunkin’ Donuts or any other chain.)

You can go here and learn why.

But if you’ve ever worked with me, you know I am not above bribing clients. I bribe my kids, too—even my husband. And now, I am here to bribe you. More


Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend!

To celebrate both my new site—and autumn—I want to share a recipe from my autumnal cookbook, The Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookbook (Sterling Publishing).

Before I share, however, I want to talk just a bit about pumpkin pie spice. Who out there knows what this stuff is?

If you’re not quite sure, it’s a somewhat arbitrary blend of warming spices (one of the reasons our bodies crave it during this time of cooler weather), packaged by many spice companies, from the supermarket staple McCormick to health brand Simply Organic. More


Shirtaki: The noodles everyone is talking about

In the past two months I’ve had about 20 clients, 9 Facebook connections and 5 friends ask me the same thing: “What’s with these Shirtaki noodles? Do you think these are something I could eat?”

You see, I have a lot of clients who are celiac, have a gluten intolerance, or simply feel better without gluten in their systems. Most of them, however, seem to really miss pasta.

Sure, they’ve tried various gluten-free pastas based on brown rice or chickpeas or quinoa or corn or whatever. More


Homemade Veggie Pasta: Why You Need a Spiralizer

I came a bit late to the whole “spiralizer thing.”

One of my 7-Day Superfood Cleanse clients (hello, Ann Brosnan!) turned me on to the idea of using vegetables as a replacement for pasta.

A quick internet search of the spiralizer brought up pages of results: spiralizer recipes, spiralizer reviews, spiralizer carrot, spiralizer zucchini, spiralizer sweet potato, spiralizer butternut squash, spiralizer KitchenAid attachment, spiralizer comparison….

And on and on. More

Pamela Olsen, LMT Massage Therapist Olsen Shiatsu & Massage New York, New York USA
“I am so grateful that signed up for this detox. It went above and beyond what a traditional detox might do: Stephanie addressed all aspects of our lives—physical, yes, but also spiritual and emotional. I was really blown away by the non-physical changes. Plus, I lost 5 pounds on the detox, and I gained clarity and a deeper connection to my emotions. Thank you so much, Stephanie!”

“I would recommend Stephanie again and again. I have a lot of knowledge already about nutrition: As a triathalete, I frequently get advice from friends and trainers about the best diet for the sport and/or sports drinks and nutrition. But there was a balance lacking in my nutrition. Even though I was working out all the time and aware of what foods would help me lose weight and gain muscle, my s…

“Before I began working with Stephanie I was immersed in long hours of work. I was not getting enough sleep, I felt sluggish, boated and looked puffy. I didn’t have the energy I wanted. I was in a downward spiral of just eating out of emotion. I was drinking way too much coffee to get energy but not quite getting the energy I needed. And I was feeling overwhelmed.In the first conversation I ha…

Jennifer L. Daily, LSCWTherapist and Parenting Coach Jennifer Daily Counselor New York, New York USA
“For years I’d felt invisible. Not even construction workers looked at me! My husband didn’t seem jazzed by my company and I felt so mousy that I barely noticed myself. So when I met Stephanie at a networking event, knew I wanted what she had. She just radiates health and peace and sensuality. I wanted her radiance, her comfort with herself, her ease with other people, and her total beauty. …
Mari JensenMari Jensen, Esq.New York, New York USA
“By the end of our first two weeks together, Stephanie had me—a person who had absolutely NO TIME for me—easily and joyfully meditating, writing morning pages, juicing, doing stretches, focusing on exercise and really recognising that I needed to make changes if I wanted a changed life. I have made permanent changes to my daily health routine. I now have myself put firmly ‘first’ in m…

“My experience with Stephanie Pedersen’s 21 Day Detox was amazing. I started out with a reluctance to detoxing because I knew it was going to mean giving up certain things which I really didn’t want to give up, i.e. Diet Coke and processed foods. I had tried on my own to clean up my diet, but I honestly couldn’t stand the withdrawal and cravings so I would throw in the towel and return to …
