2017 Goal Setting Workbook
The start of a new year is a great time to set some new goals. I chatted about resolutions and goal setting in my most recent video, and this is the accompanying PDF download that my team and I created for you to begin 2017 with your priorities in order.
Balanced Bites Master Class – enrollment open NOW!
Heads up! The Balanced Bites Master Class is open for enrollment for the January 2017 class!
We cover a ton of topics during the 10-week course. Liz and I are so excited to build a community of folks dedicated to learning and improving health in the new year!
There are two different tracks: 1 for students & 1 for health professionals (NTP/NTC, NCs, IIN graduates, RNs, Personal Trainers – if you work with clients 1:1 or in a group in a health setting, you qualify!).
Join Diane & Liz LIVE to ask your Master Class Questions!
Liz and I have both been receiving lots of great questions and wanted to make sure we hopped on a video to interact with you LIVE so each question is answered fully.
Join me to make my new Paleo Chili Recipe Tomorrow!
That's right, 2 LIVE videos coming at you to end the week.
Tomorrow, (Thursday, January 5th) I'll be making my new Super Easy Paleo Chili Recipe (I give options for the instant pot or slow-cooker in the post – I'll be using the IP tomorrow). Pick up the ingredients tonight and make it with me!
Balanced Bites Spices on Sale NOW!
O.M.G.!! Finally, the Balanced Bites Spices are on sale exclusively over at kasandrinos.com!
All of these blends are also available in the pages of Practical Paleo, 2nd Edition. If you don't want to buy them, you are welcome to make them. If you need them all nightshade-free, you are welcome to make them until we release a pack of exclusively nightshade-free blends (anticipated this spring). If you need salt-free, well, you know what I'm going to say… recipes, make them salt-free. Done.
But if you want this to be an easy-button to tasty food in your kitchen every day of the week, then here you go.
They are sold in two different 4-packs or a full set of 8-pack, and eventually, they will be sold individually. All ingredient details are on the Kasandrinos website.
New Recipe: Paleo Instant Pot Chili
The holidays are (finally) behind us and it's time to jump into a healthy routine that won't be interrupted by dips, sweets, and cocktails!
And with this colder weather, I like to cozy up with a warm bowl of soup, stew, or chili. My new and delicious Paleo Instant Pot Chili recipe is what I'm sharing with you this week. Good news, you can easily make it in a slow cooker too! This recipe uses 3 (yes 3!) of my spice blends: Taco & Fajita, Coffee BBQ, and Smoky! Enjoy.

Highlights from Instagram
I want to remind you all that where someone is today is not likely where they have always been. . On the left: (2001) the year after I graduated college and was visiting the Jelly Belly factory as a fun thing to do here in the area (hence the hat!). Most of you wouldn't even recognize that as me. In the past, when I've shown the photo to new friends, they've asked, “is that your sister?” No, in fact, my sister is quite petite. It was me. I gained weight steadily in college and didn't exercise. I was unaware of what healthy eating really meant, and I certainly didn't lift weights. I recall doing some cardio on elliptical machines here and there at the time, but that was it. The photo is fuzzy because it was printed and I took a picture of it, but I wish you could see it more clearly. There's more to my story that I'll share when I'm ready, but for now, this is the layer of the onion I'm peeling back. . On the right: (2016) On my most recent book tour – eating well, lifting weights, and taking care of myself. Not much more to say about it other than about two years before this (when I mostly looked the same), a popular (marginally) Paleo food company called me fat on the Internet because I said I didn't like or recommend their products for several reasons. . Don't compare yourself to someone on the Internet. You don't know their journey or their pain. Let them inspire or motivate you, but don't let them make you feel less than – because I promise you that even the most perfect looking person out there has their own pain.
This is the flour blend we've used in a few recipes lately for the holidays. It isn't Paleo, but most Paleo blends use almonds and I'm allergic. We've liked how pie crust and biscuits turned out with this. A lot of you asked which it was, and my @wholefoods finally had it back on the shelves, so here it is, along with my pink pants. Because I dressed myself today 🙌🏻😂👌🏻 #notsponsored #glutenfree #gf @bobsredmill . Edit: find out info about the blend and ingredients on the Bob's Red Mill website. I don't have the package anymore personally!
Now is the time to work on yourself, because without your health, not much else matters in life. You deserve it. The Balanced Bites Master Class will open for enrollment later today. Are you ready?#BBMasterClass . #Repost @drwillcole ・・・ root causation / yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. today I am wise so I am changing myself. – Rumi
