Shape Shift Facilitator

Before+After2

I was overweight and stressed out. Felt I was hiding the real me. I’ve released 50 pounds of fat with these scientifically proven systems, and lots of baggage. I sleep better, my stress levels are way down, and my true self has been set free! I believe these systems really area better way, and I have something of genuine value to share. We are in 13 countries and have just launched in the United Kingdom. 

Who are these two women? The one on the left is me at 210 pounds. I was onstage singing, with a full band backing me up, jamming the blues. The one on the right is me a year later at 160 pounds.

…and yes, this is one reason why I haven’t been posting recipes.  Last May (2016) I bought a 30-day cleanse and weight-loss system to kick start my weight loss.  I’ve used it to replace one or two meals a day.

It is so delicious, so easy, so nutritious and so convenient – and it has brought me so much freedom – it is a total no-brainer!

So now when I prepare a meal from scratch, I have more time and patience for the process.   And wow – I’ve created some amazing dishes in the past year and will be bringing you some recipes!

Meanwhile, click here to learn about the scientifically-proven cleanse and weight loss system I’ve been using.  Hey friends, I went from a 43 inch waistline to 32 inches.  Really.  I hadn’t had a 32 inch waistline since I was in my twenties!

Oh yeah, I’ve also been busy with this crazy character – learning to play the ukulele and sing – all at the same time! She is so much fun! I call her IzaDee Light!

And that’s why I call myself a shape-shift facilitator.

Workshops coming soon!

Three Sisters Chili 

Three Sisters Chili garnished with hemp seed.

This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups dry red kidney beans
  • 1.5 pounds yams (peeled and diced)
  • 1.5 pounds acorn squash (peeled and diced)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 medium size sweet peppers (red and green)
  • 2 cobs of corn (makes about 2 cups of kernels)
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 3 or 4 hot habernos peppers, finely diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 heaping teaspoon paprika

Method

  • Rinse and sort the beans, discarding any broken ones. Then place in a saucepan, cover with cold water, and soak overnight. In the morning, toss the water, give the beans a good rinse, then add enough fresh water to cover the beans, plus about 1/2 an inch. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook till tender. How long that is depends on the beans. Freshly dried beans will cook more quickly than older ones. How do you know they’re cooked? Some say you need to be able to squish the bean between your tongue and the roof of your mouth.  Allow at least 45 minutes. Could take as long as an hour and half. For that reason it’s a good idea to make this dish when you have time or buy a couple cans pre-cooked beans. 
  • While your beans are cooking, peel and dice the yams and acorn squash, into pieces 1/2 – 1 inch.
  • Blend the onion in a bullet.
  • Heat about 2 T coconut oil over medium low heat. I use a non-stick wok for this.
  • Add the onion paste to the coconut oil and when it starts to smell like it’s cooking, add the diced yams and squash.
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I use greshly ground salt and pepper and grind intuitively – about 1/2 tsp-1 tsp salt, and the double the pepper.)
  • add the bay leaf.
  • Cover and let cook over medium low heat until tender. About 20 minutes.
  • While it’s cooking, dice the peppers into small pieces (about 14-1/2 inch). Set the prepped peppers aside. You will these when the yams and squash are almost cooked.
  • Chop 1 bunch of dark green kale (makes about 4 loosely packed cups).
  • Slice the corn kernels off the cobs and also set these aside. This goes in last.
  • Mince the habernos.
  • When the beans are cooked, add them to the yams and squash.
  • If you have a crock pot – transfer everything to that, add the peppers, kale, corn, habernos, paprika and tomatoes.
  • Cover and cook on your crock pot’s best setting to bring this to a simmer, and let simmer a couple hours.  If you don’t have a crock pot, reduce the heat on your stove top and set to simmer there.

Serve garnished with hemp seed.

    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›
