What the Heck is Camp Kale Anyway?

(Mostly) Plant-Based Nutrition + Lifestyle Coaching
for Pizza Lovers and Party People

Camp Kale is a "mostly-plants" detox and nutrition program designed specifically for fall.  This powerful online course and coaching program is delivered straight to your email inbox, and via a password-protected website and social media.
 
Camp Kale is a new kind of camp — instead of sailing lessons and archery, we'll try juicing and blending.
 
Chopping and dicing.
 
Stirring and sautéing our way to quick, healthy meals. 
 
Learning how to navigate restaurant dining and menu-hack our way to a more balanced lifestyle.
 
Developing mindfulness tactics to help resolve our often emotionally charged relationship to the food.
 
In short — we'll acknowledge that while any season has its fair share of indulgences, we can train ourselves how to better navigate the territory between "being good" and train wreck.
 
Camp Kale participants will be invited to:
 
1 — Learn powerful "flex-tox" strategies to help manage weight, and balance the body, while indulging in treats and festivities.

2 — Use improved nutrition (eat more fruits and vegetables!) to look and feel better in our bodies. 

3 — Celebrate the season's bounty with delicious "real food" recipes: smoothies, breakfast dishes, juices, salads, soups, "bowls," wraps, grill/skillet meals and other tasty fare.

4 — Explore the benefits of incorporating "raw" and plant-based foods into our diet, regardless of the kind of protein we eat.

5 — Support and strengthen your body with enhanced nutrition coaching from a certified holistic nutritionist.

Camp Kale Benefits + Early Bird Offer

Camp Kale is a four-week program that costs $139 per participant (about $35/week).
 
Online registration is handled via Paypal — early bird pricing is $119 ($20 savings).
 
Each Camper will receive:
 
1. Camp Kale Prep Guide — Each participant will receive an eBook (PDF format) that shows you how to prep the pantry and make other pre-camp preparations.
 
2. Weekly Meal Plans and Featured Recipes — The weekly Meal Planner will help you get focused and organized, and the recipes will enable you to prepare simple meals that are both satisfying and delicious. Links for these downloads will be sent directly to your email inbox each week.
 
3. Nutrition Instruction + Group Coaching — Each weekday throughout the program, I send a special email to your inbox, featuring the day’s nutrition focus and lifestyle tips — as well as a little extra support and motivation.
 
4. Weekly Intensive via Audio and/or Video — Each week, you'll be invited to take a deep dive into a specific nutrition topic, which will be covered via conference call/webinar and/or video demonstration. 
 
5. Access to a Private Facebook Group  (optional) — If you're on Facebook, this is a great place to ask questions and exchange support with fellow participants.

Who Needs Camp Kale?

Camp Kale is for anyone who wants to clean up their act after an indulgent summer — or anyone who simply wants to start living a healthier lifestyle. Specifically, Camp Kale is designed for:

- Those of us who partied our faces off this summer.

- The "veggie-challenged" — people who know they "should" eat more vegetables, but haven't figured out how to make that happen just yet.

- People who are trying to manage their cholesterol, weight, body mass index or blood sugar levels — and could benefit from some extra guidance and support around nutrition, meal planning and cooking.

- People who are interested in learning more about juicing, healthy smoothies, raw foods, and nutrient-dense superfoods.

What's it Like Working with Monica?

I know there can be a lot of guilt and shame around the nutrition and fitness industry. However, Camp Kale is a guilt/shame-free zone! Here's some background on my approach and key practices:

We won't be counting calories — or fat grams or carbs.

We won't be hungry — the plan includes plenty of food. Delicious, healthy, easy-to-prepare food.

I believe in eating delicious food — if it doesn't taste good, you won't want to eat it — or be able to make lasting change in your life.

We're all busy. I get that — and I also believe it's possible to live healthy in spite of a busy, overcommitted lifestyle. I'm constantly trying to fine-tune my game to save you time and energy in the kitchen.

It's all about the balance. Most people can succeed on a crash diet for a short period of time.  However, long term and sustainable change is a balance of clean-living and indulgences. I don't lead a spartan existence, and I certainly don't expect you to.

This program is all about resetting your system after an indulgent holiday season, and establishing healthier habits that will serve you well once you go back to the real world.

The vibe is positive and encouraging. No shaming, guilt trips or scolding. I am here to support you, wherever you are on your healthy living spectrum.

Testimonials

Here's just an example of what it's like to work with me...

Monica has changed my life. I love the simplicity, creativity of her recipes and the variety! 

I have always eaten a fairly clean diet, but we are creatures of habit and it so easy to eat the same things from week to week and fall off track when life gets busy. With Monica’s guidance I have incorporated foods like radicchio, hemp seed hearts, cashew milk, and different spices I had never used. I used to be a serious Cheeseaholic and after taking a food sensitivity test my naturopath suggested I cut out dairy. With Monica’s guidance and programs I rarely eat dairy and my body feels amazing. I am recovering quicker from my workouts and within 2 months lost 8 pounds simply by cutting out dairy. Yes once in a while I will have dairy, but I don’t feel like it controls me. Monica has taught me to stay empowered with my decision to say no to certain things, but also not to beat myself up when I slip up. Find what works for you, enjoy life, enjoy food and eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.

— Lisa B., Portland, OR

 

I can't say enough about this program. It was fabulous.
 
I had become so sick of my body and all the extra weight I was carrying around because of "peri-menopause." I gained about 7-10 lbs over the last few years, and no matter what I did the weight never came off. I tried all sorts of diets to no avail and I work out constantly. Monica's recipes and daily inspirational emails were game changers for me. The recipes were quite simply, fabulous. The clean eating also completely altered my sleep habits. I am waking up less in the middle of the night and for the first time in a long while, I actually feel rested upon waking. Hot flashes--GONE! My eyes are brighter and my skin is clearer, and I'm proud to say that I have lost over 12 lbs. I recommend this program for anyone who needs a kick-start. I never thought it would be so much fun getting healthy and fit at the same time.
