Introducing The Vegetarian Reset Lab
I’ve been hunkered down working on a very exciting project you guys - my online cooking course, aka The Vegetarian Reset Lab! And today, I am thrilled to invite a select few to join my Founder’s Circle. This is an exclusive invite to my Substack community: I’m looking for ~10 people to join me at a 50% pre-sale discount in return for feedback on the course content.
The Vegetarian Reset Lab is my 4-step system to master the art of carb-conscious vegetarian cooking in just 30 days. It teaches a fresh paradigm of vegetarian cooking - one where your plate is anchored to vegetables and protein, with a side of starch. You will learn:
How to reset your kitchen with high-quality ingredients that love you back.
Cooking techniques that amp up protein and lower carbs while honoring your culinary traditions.
How to build your plate around vegetables and protein, and include a serving of starch that is right for you.
My meal-planning strategy and tips to make this a sustainable lifestyle.
This course is for you, if:
You know you want to try a lower-carb way of eating and you’ve done your research (i.e. that bag of almond flour is sitting in your pantry gathering dust). You just need to do it and would love someone to take you step by step without the overwhelm on your shoulders.
You’re already living a low-carb lifestyle but need fresh ideas. Think seasonal vegetables, spices, variety in vegetarian proteins and more than anything, tested recipes so you don’t waste your time.
You’ve experienced success with the ketogenic diet but found it unsustainable. You want to still reap the benefits of eating lower-carb but without cutting entire food groups out of your life.
I know what it takes to make a carb-conscious way of eating sustainable. I’ve helped thousands of people reset and gain a new perspective with my cookbook. But over the past year, I’ve heard from many of you who just need a little more support. This is me, moving in with you and helping you take charge. I’ll walk you through everything that I’ve learned through years of experimentation to get you from point A to point B on the fastest route.
The course will be entirely online and self-paced - think “cooking show” vibe with a total viewing time of less than 3 hours. You will also get a recipe library with 30+ recipes encompassing breakfast, lunch, dinner along with a 30-day meal plan. And the kicker bonus? A YEAR’s worth of my weeknight meal plan, Weeknight Simple, for free! ($50 value. Weeknight Simple goes paid in January 2024.)
I know that I’m over-delivering here for the price. So why am I offering a hefty discount? Because I value your feedback and want to build something that will be truly useful to you.
I am looking for a small group of committed people to enroll in my future $297 course at a 50% discount, in exchange for less than five minutes of your time once per week over the next 3 months as I develop the content. I’ll either send you a short survey (5 questions or less) and all you have to do is vote for your favorite idea or answer a simple question.
The course will go Live in February, 2024 – which is you will have access, along with others who will purchase the course at full price.
I’d love for you to be part of this exclusive behind the scenes experience with direct access to me.
If you’ve been struggling to transition your cooking style or get new ideas, this is your chance to get in at the lowest rate I will ever offer this course for. The best part? You get a say in what will be included in the course! AND Lifetime Access to the materials. Which means, if I update the core program anytime in the future, you’ll get those updates hot off the press, too!
Click here to enroll today at a special discounted price: [$148.50]. This opportunity is only available until Nov 30.
