The 5 gifts I am giving this year

Hello Gorgeous,
The winter holidays are here: Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s. If you haven’t finished your gift shopping yet and are looking around for new and novel and inexpensive gifts to help your loved ones get healthy, I’ve got a few suggestions. These are the five gifts I am giving everyone in my life, both the nice and the naughty.

Roots: The Complete Guide to the Underground Superfood, by Stephanie Pedersen (Sterling Publishing). This is my latest book in Sterling’s Superfood series. It’s officially out in January, but Amazon has advance copies. Learn everything you ever thought possible about jicama, turnips, rutabaga, sunchokes, burdock, salsify,parsnips, radishes and more. These outrageously healthy foods are easy to find, economical, nutrient-packed and delicious. Check out my recipes for everything from drinks to condiments to pies, all using root vegetables. More

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Praise for Stephanie

“As I get older I have gained an increasing awareness that affirmatively taking good care of my body and health is an important act of survival and self love. It makes sense to begin with detoxing. cleaning your vessel, as a preparation for the good stuff you plan to put in it. I was therefore thrilled to be given the opportunity to participate in Stephanie Pedersen’s 21-Day Power Life Detox p…

“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…

“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!”

“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…

“After just 3 months of working with Stephanie, I have gone from what I called dumpy to being irresistible. It is true. I am irresistible. Extreme health and self-love has made me confident and magnetic, which are my secret beauty weapons. You would not believe the things I now attract into my life-a $10,000 mid-year pay raise, weekly flowers and footrubs from my husband and the comfort of reall…

“When I signed up for the 21-Day Power Life Detox program with Stephanie Pedersen I thought it would be a good way to clean out my diet and deal with ongoing food cravings which seemed to always have the upper hand. Having tried various programs and approaches and diets in the past, I was willing to try this, too. Working with Stephanie was extremely gentle. She eased us into a comprehensive pro…

Jennifer L. Daily, LSCWTherapist and Parenting Coach Jennifer Daily Counselorhttp://jenniferdailycounseling.com 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. …
