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







Praise for Stephanie

“When I came to Stephanie I had regained a bunch of weight (close to 30 lbs) that was tearing my mind apart from my body and spirit in really tragic ways. Further, I was facing a major surgery that was posing a threat to my existing health routines. I was very worried about gaining weight becuase I was going to be coach-bound. I felt helpless and hopeless. I had lost any faith in my metabolism, …
