Discover Your Fool-Proof Strategy to Putting the Healthy Meals on Your Plate that You and Your Family Deserve.
(Insert video – we need veg, aren’t getting it; its not your fault; this is my mission)
Having healthy, vegetable-rich meals accessible is a habit that can be mastered, even if you don’t have a lot of time for food prep, have picky eaters, or are running full throttle managing work, home life, and volunteer activities.
I get it.
Eating healthy can be a challenge. Sometimes it falls right up next to prepping taxes and scheduling dental appointments on the list of “Adulting Activities I Dislike the Most”. You know what healthy foods should be on your plate and you genuinely value your health, but the planning, prepping, and chopping feels like too much sometimes. Especially when you have stubborn kids, an erratic schedule, or energy slumps that have you drained before you even get into the kitchen.
You work a lot and you have lots of responsibilities. Many of them are urgent – screaming children, work deadlines, laundry….your health is probably the most important responsibility you have to yourself and your family, but it rarely becomes an urgent matter so it is easy to overlook! Yet our daily choices make the greatest impact on whether or not we will ever face an urgent health crisis.
In a culture of overwork where convenience trumps quality, it is easy to miss out on nutrients needed to sustain health. The foods which are cheapest and most readily available are not the ones which keep us thriving, authentically energized, and sharp-minded.
If you are struggling to eat how you know you should be, you are not alone. Healthy living is literally counter-culture and requires swimming upstream against the current of big advertising dollars and government subsidized foods which rob us of our health and vitality. Like swimming, when you are first learning how it can feel cumbersome, complicated and take a lot of mental and physical energy. But with a good coach and some practice, you can glide through the water like a pro.
Hi, I’m Aimee. I’m here to coach you into becoming a strong, healthy swimmer, swiftly moving against the current of convenience culture which is robbing industrialized populations of their health and vitality in the prime years of their life.
I have dedicated my life to studying the impact of food upon health. For the last 25 years I’ve been educating myself and others on how to prevent disease through food and lifestyle – and how to thrive even if you do have a diagnosis. I have coached thousands over the last 13 years to improve their energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, end chronic pain and reduce or eliminate medications by changing how they eat and live. The common thread for all was an increase in vegetable consumption. This is probably not a surprise to you.
Every single one of the top ten causes of death in the United States can be linked to what you consume. Whether your family history is riddled with heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer or even depression and anxiety, shifting your plate to consuming more vegetables is the single factor that researchers and health professionals can agree upon as the most impactful act of health preservation.
Yet our culture does not encourage this, our health care system ignores this, our schools do not teach this and we are set up, by default, to fail.
The average American consumes just over 1 serving of vegetables a day. While the government recommends we get 3-5 servings of vegetables per day, research shows there is no upper limit to the health benefits from vegetable consumption. Data currently indicates the people who consume 10 or more servings of vegetables a day are the healthiest and have the least risk of disease, death, and depression across the board.
HOLY CRAP. That’s a lot of veg.
10 servings a day is some serious business! If you are committed to your health, increasing your servings to 8-10 a day is daunting, no doubt. But with a qualified coach at your side, a community of committed individuals, and a proven stepwise system to ‘bump up the veg’ you can get there.
I’ve had such great results with my clients and seen such wonderful progressions with my annual Glorious Greens challenge that I’ve decided to create a new program where we do a deep dive into your obstacles and strengths to support your transition into masterful veg hunter – one who can procure your 10 a day like a pro. While we create and iterate the plan that will get you there, you’ll be supported to boost your vegetable consumption immediately with delicious recipes, a menu plan, and time saving tips to getting produce on your plate.
What will happen when you do?
Well, if you are like other clients I have coached through this process, you’ll find:
- your digestive system runs delightfully smooth
- your skin clears up
- your sugar cravings go away
- you feel less moody (weird, right?)
- like the Energizer Bunny, you can keep going and going all day long.
Not only that, but as one client so aptly put it, some now say they “Wake up NOT feeling like I was hit by a truck”.
“Well that’s all well and good, Aimee,” you might be thinking. “But I don’t have the time nor the energy to spend hours chopping vegetables at night. I need to be able to come home and get dinner on the table in less than an hour.”
What if you could do just that?
What if I could teach you to be a food planning pro – who not only had delicious recipes at your disposal, but also a customized plan that worked with your schedule, your energy, and your budget?
What if you had access to someone who has been devoted to healthy cooking for so long that she’s lived through healthy eating for one, healthy eating as a poor-ass college kid, healthy eating as a nomadic traveler, healthy eating as a mom of a veg-phobic child, and even now – healthy eating as a working mom in grad school?
I know what it feels like to be tight on money, to have zero time to spare, and to have so many demands on you that you keep forgetting to take care of yourself.
I also know, through my experience and my clients’ experiences, that when you commit to carving out that time for yourself, you cultivate the energy, clarity, and vibrancy to show up fully for more of the demands that are placed upon you. We cannot nourish our careers, our families or even our retirement well if we do not nourish ourselves well.
What kind of results can you get from increasing your vegetable consumption?
“I can really feel that my energy level has changed….it lasts so much longer and I don’t feel that burnout so soon.” -Jennifer J.
“I feel better. I have less inflammation; less joint pain and restriction in my shoulder. My digestive system feels great, and I’ve also lost five pounds.” – Esther S.
“When I eat more protein, Fruit and veg I feel lighter and a little more energetic; I haven’t been getting energy slumps like I used to, which is so nice.” – Heidi T.
Whether you are a single career woman or juggling parenthood and work, we all need to be on our “A game” more hours of the day than not. Making produce the focal point of your meals allows you to:
- more effortlessly manage your weight
- improve your digestion
- reduce systemic inflammation and reliance on pain management medications
- boost your energy levels and sustain them throughout the day
- improve and stabilize your mood – no matter where you are in your cycle!
- reduce ‘lifestyle medications’ like those used to manage blood pressure and blood sugar
- Hate vegetables and your inner child throws a tantrum at the sight of one
- You aren’t really able or willing to make changes in your habits around meals
- And you don’t even really get why vegetables are so important
this is not the program for you. I’m not here to convince you to get more produce in. I trust you’ve already figured out this is a key element in your health. If you haven’t, this is a pretty good place to start.
However, this is the perfect program for you if:
- You are not getting 8-10 servings of vegetables daily (what is a serving? 80 grams, which is 1/2 cup cooked, 1 cup raw veg or 2 cups leafy greens)
- You want to feel better about yourself knowing that you are taking care of yourself and living in alignment with your health values.
- You value your health and are invested in maintaining (or improving) it, but struggle with getting those healthy meals on your plate.
- The thought of hunting down recipes, buying all the ingredients, and THEN having to wash and chop and prep everything causes your brain to seize up and shut down.
You already know vegetables are good for you and you don’t need to be convinced to eat more. You just need some assistance and support in learning those stealth ninja moves that disarm all the obstacles, inner demons, and legitimate scheduling nightmares that makes this so hard.

Here’s what some people have said about my previous veg challenges:
“This is a brilliant challenge, and I’ve done a million of ’em. In order to change my eating habits, beginning with ADDING stuff, instead of restricting stuff has been much more successful. And I feel like I’m adding stuff for great reasons. Just by adding greens, my body wants them and I feel leaner and cleaner. My eating habits all around have been healthier without much effort.” – Sue S.
“ (This is) Ideal for people who appreciate social support when trying to complete a goal. And very interesting, convincing and motivating, Aimee presents up to date, interesting and in depth research based articles.” – Sarah S.
“I like the sense of community in solidarity I feel in being part of a group of people who were all just trying to improve their health. I like the support I received from the group… I do follow what happens and it does make a difference. Sometimes I think the first thing you have to change is your mind, and getting that reinforcement can really help.” -Angela P.
