This recipe was shared by a patient who converted from take out to simple fare at home. She lost 80 lbs using this as a freqent go-to food. What I love about this dish is the flavor and that it's great as leftovers. You can also add other things to it, like leftover chicken or marinated artichoke. The spinach, garlic and feta also make a great topping for pizza. Of course it's classic Mediterranean fare.

Health coaching, who is it a good fit for?
When you hold the clarity of your aims for health and wellbeing, health coaching helps you take active, sustained steps towards your goal. Accountability is part of it, but the bigger slice is holding your own wisdom and knowledge re: aims and strategies up where you and your coach can hear it. It's also useful if you find yourself feeling stuck or going in little circles without moving on.
What is the difference between nutrition therapy and health coaching?
Nutrition care helps you use eating and movement to improve a health condition; involves taking a history and some nutrition education. Health coaching begins with clarifying your health goals/wellness vision and then identifying next steps and barriers to move toward a specific health or life focus. Both are effective. With true health coaching we focus more initially on developing your overall wellness/vision. With nutrition therapy we focus on a specific health objective.
