Diane Sanfilippo What's Up Weekly 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

Enrollment for the Balanced Bites Master Class closes on FRIDAY!

The Balanced Bites Master Class is about empowering you with real information – the actual tools you need to build the life you want and to create the change you need…

Hint: those tools DON’T include dietary dogma, yes/no lists, “wagons” for you to fall from, or arbitrary rules and restrictions.

One question that keeps popping up is confusion around what it means to be a “coach.” If you are any kind of health or fitness professional who works with clients in the wellness space, you qualify. We are talking RN, RD, ND, DC, NTP, NTC, NC, IIN grads, RNs, Personal Trainers, Crossfit Trainers… if you already have a certification and work to improve clients' health, you'll want to join the coaches track. If you are still unsure of which track is right for you, simply reply to this email and we'll help you sort it out.

Note: the Balanced Bites Master Class will not independently certify you to work with clients 1:1 or in groups in terms of a state-recognized credential, but rather enhance your knowledge, professionalism, and ability to communicate to your clients effectively.

Wellness Juice Shot Recipe


I recommend chasing this shot with a fresh 🍓if you can! If that’s not in season, an extra swing of fresh (plain) OJ will do.

I use an Omega model 8005 masticating juicer and it works beautifully for the garlic and ginger. I recommend machine washing it after or soaking if you normally juice less pungent items. Because it’ll leave your juicer parts with vampire-fighting powers.

(For a #21DSD version use fresh grapefruit instead of orange juice!)

I'm sharing some recipe inspiration, featuring a new blend each week. This week the spotlight is on my TACO & FAJITA blend, obviously good for tacos or fajitas… but you can do so much more! 🙂

  1. T&F Avocado Paleo Toast – Spinach scrambled eggs + T&F blend + avocado on a toasted sweet potato round (inspo: @rosecoloredplate)
  2. T&F Nachos – Layer tortilla chips of choice with some grilled steak seasoned with T&F blend, goat milk cheddar & chevre & broil for a few minutes, then add shredded cabbage, sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, fresh lime juice, and a few additional shakes of T&F blend.
  3. T&F Taco Salad – Season ground meat of choice with T&F blend, then add lots of chopped romaine, cauli rice, sautéed peppers & onions, cilantro, avocado, and fresh lime. (inspo: @livinglovingpaleo)
  4. T&F Sloppy Joes – Sauté chopped onions, garlic, carrots & zucchini in a little cooking fat. Add 2 pounds of grass-fed beef, and add 2 tablespoons of T&F blend, 1 can of tomato paste, a splash of ACV & maple syrup, then simmer over low heat for 10 additional minutes (inspo: @holisticlittlesprouts)
