and having great conversations

What does it take to make the kind of meals you really want to be eating?

How can you do it on an everyday basis--and reap the sweet and wonderful health benefits of a clean, real, wholesome diet?

A couple questions for you

Join me for Cooking Camp, where you'll have time to explore the barriers getting in your way.  Then see how the KitchenSmart Solution® can help you break through those obstacles and get solidly on the road to healthy meal making and eating.

I took Mary’s"healthy cooking" class and I just had to shout out how great it was. Mary is sparkling and funny and energetic and she knows her stuff. I learned how to cook food that is not only healthy but delicious. (Before, those two characteristics seemed fairly incompatible to me.) I learned this is a lifestyle and state of mind.  I can't gush about her enough.


More About Cooking Camp

If you're part of our healthy eating community, you know that Meal Making Transformation is what we're all about:  If you want to eat better, then learn to make better meals.

Cooking Camp is the perfect way to fast track your way to better meal making so you can start achieving real progress toward your healthy eating hopes and dreams. For example:

Want to start eating more vegetables?

How about cooking with 12 different ones over the week -- trying them in new ways, in new combinations and with new flavors

Wish you actually liked the fresh, light taste of vegetables, instead of just eating them because you should?

Discover how your taste buds can become your best friend and most helpful ally on the healthy eating journey

Wish you weren't a slave to sugar and carb cravings?

Learn the science behind cravings and meal making tricks and strategies to beat them

Discouraged because your food doesn't taste good?

Discover the magic of spicing and seasoning and how to customize recipes for your personal tastes

Wish you could feel confident that you were making healthy meals?

Pssst . . . here's a little known secret:  Healthy eating is a lot easier than you think.  Find out why and how anyone can do it!

Would you love to feel inspired and motivated to make good-for-you meals?

Let's talk about that, too, and discover what inspirational sparks work for you

And the biggest wish of all: Do you yearn to make healthy meals quickly and easily?

Solving our time and energy barriers--which almost every home cook faces--lies at the core of this week-long program.  And the solution may well surprise you, because it's not primarily about cooking!  The solutions are found in the comprehensive, integrated KitchenSmart Solution® that you'll get to learn about--and do.

Oh, and lest I forget the other biggest perennial problem:  Would it be great to not be so bored with mealtimes?

You bet it would!  It's time for a fresh step and a little more sparkle in your meals.  That's why you'll learn lots of simple touches to easily add interest and appeal to your meals.

The method behind the magic

How can I promise so much?  Because of the KitchenSmart Solution®. This proprietary system is the foundation for the Meal Making Transformation that you need to achieve your healthy eating goals.  The KitchenSmart Solution® is based on best practices developed over my 25 years of coaching and teaching in the healthy meal making and eating field.

The beauty of this system is that it's "diet neutral."  In other words, it doesn't matter what dietary approach you want to follow, this system provides the nuts and bolts implementation tools you need to be successful.  With the help of its 6 Essential Strategies, you'll find answers and solutions to almost every challenge you face getting the healthy meals on the table that you want, day in and day out.

A typical day at camp

Morning Session--a combination of hands-on cooking instruction and conversation around the 6 Essential Strategies of the KitchenSmart Solution®. In the cooking segment we'll cook, taste and evaluate two to three recipes that are representative of the day's theme.  The last hour we'll enjoy a lovely meal, chat, and evaluate the day's learning against your healthy eating goals.  

Evening Session--Choose between a live or online class via my virtual classroom. With the convenient online option, you needn’t dress up or drive anywhere.  Just follow along with me from the comfort of your own kitchen as I walk you through a simple go-to recipe--the kind you need for every day when you don't have much time and limited energy.  When we're done, so is dinner. Recipes and shopping lists provided.

Don’t be discouraged–see what you might be missing:The Missing Pieces  What does the 40 to 70% of missing kitchen knowledge look like?  Here are just a few examples:


Educate, Excite and Empower You to Make the

 Health-Giving Meals of your Dreams

Look at all that you get!

Plus . . .

And of course . . .

Lots of instruction (25 hours) in a small-group, hands-on format to build your confidence and comfort cooking wholesome meals on your own

The cost for all this?

Just $395 for all 25 hours of instruction

+ $  95 food and materials cost

Think of the money you spend on prepared foods and restaurant meals (usually not-so-healthy) because you can't get organized and energized to make your own good meals.

Think of what you pay for pills, supplements, doctor visits and so on–not just in terms of money but also time and uncomfortable side effects. What if you could save bundles on those costs and be free of those time drains and side effects, just by spending a week getting educated and jazzed to make your own, health-giving meals?

Now think on the positive side:  How wonderful it would be to enjoy the healthy weight and good energy that comes from eating well.  Maybe you can’t remember what that feels like, but I can assure you that it is magnificent and you’ll love it!

Considering all this goodness, I think you'll agree that

$395 is a small price to pay!
