Do you feel like you’re not quite “getting it” when it comes to your diet? Feeling like you’re not eating “healthy” in the right way to live a vibrant, energy-filled life?

Discover How To Prepare The Healthy Foods You Are Already Eating To Maximize Their Nutrition So You Can Get The Health Boost You’re Looking For!

It’s not about the latest fad diet – it’s about using centuries-old techniques to prepare food in a way your body can absorb!

From the desk of Sarica-Rhymes-With-Eureka

Dear Friend,

You know it’s time to make some changes in your wellness – specifically in what you and your family are eating, but you’re not sure how to sort through the fads and hype and come up with a plan that will actually work for you.

And it’s getting frustrating!

You’re committed to a healthy lifestyle (that isn’t a fad!) and you’re already using healthy ingredients in the foods you're cooking, or purchasing prepared foods with good nutritional content.

But there’s still something missing! And you just don’t know what…

Does this sound like you?

  • “Improve my health and vitality” a goal you’ve set for yourself – but no matter how you write it or re-work it, it still feels… nebulous.
  • You want to eat healthy – but it is always such a struggle.
  • Thinking of the best “diet” for you leaves you cold – Dairy? Wheat? Gluten? Carbs? Oh my!
  • You want to get the most nutrition out of the foods you’re buying but you’re running out of new ways to prepare that don’t take all day, don’t need fancy equipment, and still tastes good.

You know that health and vitality starts in the kitchen – and you’re committed to doing it right – but you’re at the end of what you know how to do.

So now what?

First off, you’re in the right place!

Even if you already eat healthy foods, you NEED this information!

“Sarica has been instrumental in helping me learn how to live a healthier lifestyle through nutrition. Her endless support and willingness to share her gifts has made a huge impact to both me and my family!!”

Despite all my professional training, career experience, and seemingly “good genes” I struggled with my energy, digestion, and overall wellness. Imagine what it’s like to have so much education and STILL feel… blah!

I was dedicated to my health and the health of my family – buying all-organic, free-range, cage-free, gluten-free… you can imagine the grocery bill for a family of four with that standard of care! But I was still bloated, my menstrual cycles were incredibly challenging, I had food cravings, my energy was erratic, my sleep was disrupted…

And that doesn’t even touch what I saw happening in my son’s health, even with all this “healthy” food to feed him!

I was seemingly doing ALL the “right” things but I was missing one crucial piece – how to put it all together.

Knowing the answers were out there somewhere, I began studying how the foods of our ancestors were prepared. Through my research, it became crystal clear to me that it is not just about bringing healthy foods into your diet, it’s also crucial that these foods be prepared in a manner to extract their maximum nutrition.

These methods even help to make maligned foods – like grains – a part of a balanced and healthy diet for you and your family!

Today, I help people engage with their creative spirit and their vitality through these ancient (and easy) food preparation methods.

Because I know first-hand what it’s like to change your eating habits by changing your diet, buying more "healthy" foods, being careful to read labels – and still not feeling like you’re reaching your ultimate health goals. Some of these changes have left you feeling, looking and thinking better... but you’re pretty sure you can still feel better than what your current "better" is!

This is why I’ve created Fresh, Fun, and Flavorful in The Funky Kitchen!

“I am fairly new to all forms of alternative medicine and first came to Sarica for acupuncture … her enthusiasm for and knowledge of healthful eating opened my eyes in many ways. I fall off the healthy eating wagon often but now have the tools from Sarica that get me back on the wagon quickly. She is very down-to-earth and explains things in an easily understandable manner. Only disappointment is that I didn’t meet her 20 years ago!”

Great question!

When you enroll in “Fresh, Fun, and Flavorful in The Funky Kitchen”, you receive:

  • 6 online modules, using videos, notes, photographs and audio instruction to clearly guide you through each preparation technique

What would it be like to experience true, lasting vitality? The kind of vitality you remember from your childhood... or maybe the kind of vitality you've only ever imagined?

I understand that putting a price tag on vitality seems kind of silly. But you can put a price tag on doctor’s visits, prescriptions, and medical testing! What is vitality, energy, and feeling good worth to you?

For me, it’s priceless. But if I had to put a price tag on it, I know that it’s far more than $697 (which is the investment in “Fresh, Fun, and Flavorful in The Funky Kitchen” by the way!)

But since I know you’re already dedicated to taking charge of your health and your life,  I wanted to give you a Special Discount of $350.

That brings the investment in “Fresh, Fun, and Flavorful in The Funky Kitchen” to just $347.

So now are you ready?

Or do you still have some questions about if this system is a good match for you?

Here are several of the questions I hear most frequently, and their answers, to help you decide if “Fresh, Fun, and Flavorful in The Funky Kitchen” is right for you.

Q: I’m really busy. How will I have time to do all this?

A: First off, all classes are archived in MP3 (audio) as well as MP4 (video) for you to listen to on playback, at your leisure, and to download to your own computer or device. Also, these are methods I have used for years as a busy, working mother and wife, and so I know they can easily be a functional part of your life, too.

Q. There are so many opinions on health and nutrition out there today. Why is this the path to take?

A: People today seem to be more interested in nutrition than ever before: Paleo, Atkins, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, grain free, organic… the list goes on and on. But what’s really missing is the preparation of the foods! People have gone far away from how foods have been prepared for a millennia, and in doing so, what has come in its wake is digestive ills (leaky gut syndrome, colitis, IBS, GERD, SIBO, etc.) and as a result of these presentations, other issues that seem unrelated, but have their root in gut dysfunction.

And despite all the wonderful, organic, pasture-raised, cage-free accolades of modern diets, people are still struggling. It’s not just the ingredients that matter! It’s the way they are prepared that carries equal (if not more) weight in a vital life experience.

Q. Can’t I just buy your book? Why do I need to also take the class?

A. The book is a great place to start – and that’s why I include it as a bonus. But what you don’t get from the book is the live, personal interaction from me in the Facebook group to answer your specific questions and help you integrate these techniques into your life. In the live course, you’re also getting my consultation time. You’ve got my support throughout, which you don’t get with the book!

When you enroll in the course, you get a hand-holding journey with me, where you’re part of a live and vibrant group of support so that you can craft a way of food preparation that will forever change your approach to cooking and untold benefits to digestive health.

NOW Are You Ready?

Yes, Sarica, I’m ready to change how I prepare my food – and change my health, vitality, and energy!
