SignMeUpButton4

Passover with Personal Purpose

Would you like to use the 8 days of Passover to create
healthy habits and nourishing rituals in your life?

 


WHEN: Sunday April 13th – April 24th


 

From Matzah to Mindful is a
healthy 8-day experience

that will open the door to:

  • A delicious healthy Passover, free of packaged processed foods.
  • Traditional Jewish and mindful practices that nourish the mind and soul.
  • More energy
  • Less stress
  • A faster metabolism
  • Oodles of healthy Passover recipes
  • A strife-free relationship with your food
  • A more positive relationship with your body
  • A more meaningful and personal experience of Passover

Cutting edge research about the mind-body connection is showing us that it’s not just what we eat, but how we eat that allows us to feel our best.

Bringing mindful and soulful practices to the table boosts our metabolism and calorie burning power, and helps us create deeper meaning and connection in our lives.

From Matzah to Mindful: 8 days of Soulful Nutrition and
Spiritual Renewal jumps right into the intersection of

FOOD & SPIRITUALITY

as well as

JUDAISM & HEALTH

From Matzah to Mindful is for you if…

  • You’re done with all the processed packaged food that Passover brings into your house and your body
  • You want Passover to have a more powerful impact on your life besides just being a time that you eat matzah
  • You’re ready to explore a true “Freedom” based relationship with food versus a “restrictive/slavery” based relationship with food
  • You know that you feel better when you eat better
  • You’re curious how it would feel to be gluten-free for 8 days.
  • You would like to step into spring feeling refreshed and revitalized
  • You want to connect to a vibrant group of soulful women
  • You want to work with coaches that get that it’s not just what we eat that’s important, it’s also about how we eat, why we eat and how we feel about our food, our body, and our soul

 

From Matzah to Mindful:

It isn’t a diet…

But we will step into healthy eating habits. We’ll be focusing on healthy fresh foods, versus packaged and processed foods.

It isn’t a detox…

We’re not jumping into a full-tilt elimination diet, however, since it is Passover we will be eliminating bread. In fact, we’re going to take it one step further and eliminate the matzah (gasp – it’s true, we’ll be having Passover without matzah!) and all foods containing gluten.

Research suggests that Jews (especially Eastern European Jews) have a higher tendency to be sensitive to gluten. Stepping off of gluten often has a dramatic health impact – more energy, better digestion, reduced inflammation, and clearer thinking.

For sure it can seem daunting to go gluten-free if you never have, but honestly, you’ll love the healthy recipes I’ve got for you. You won’t feel deprived on bit.

It’s not JUST about food, and it’s not JUST about mindful practices.

From Matzah to Mindful steps you firmly into the intersection of soulful nutrition and spiritual renewal.

This isn’t a diet, detox or cleanse, this is 8 days of:

  • Eating real and fresh food that is appropriate for Passover
  • Stepping into a mindful experience of eating
  • Exploring the deeper meaning of renewal that lies in Passover
  • Learning mindful techniques that will create inner peace and boost your metabolism (imagine that!)
  • Uncovering the power of eating for a purpose higher than pleasure, energy, or weight loss. When we can connect to food nourishing our deepest self, then much of our food mishegas slips away

 

FAQ’s:

Q. How does a virtual program work? Where do I go for the class?

From Matzah to Mindful really works in our busy lives, because you can participate from anywhere. You don’t have to drive or park.

All your classes are on the phone. All your materials and information will be accessible online via a members’ library page, created just for you. And, if you can’t make a class, no need to worry. The classes will all be recorded, and you can listen at your convenience.


Q. Do I need to be Jewish to take this program?

No, you don’t, everyone is welcome to participate in from Matzah to Mindful. However, we will be drawing from the meaning and rituals of Passover. As long as you are comfortable with stepping into a Jewish context, with amazing Jewish women, you are most welcome.


Q. Will this program take a lot of time or work, because I’m already so busy?

Not at all. we specialize in creating powerful healthy programs that are do-able for busy moms. We’ll be giving you shopping lists, recipes and versatile meal plans. Your mindful practices will not only fit into your full life, they will actually give you a more spacious experience of your daily life.


Q. Did you say that we wouldn’t be eating Matzah on Passover? That sounds crazy!  Isn’t matzah an important part of Passover?

Matzah is the original fast food! A bite to eat on the run, right?

From Matzah to Mindful is about slowing down and really taking in nourishment. It’s about stepping out of the enslavement of constantly eating on the run and into the freedom of deep nourishment.

Passover is about breaking free from bondage. As a society, we really are enslaved by the effects of highly processed and chemicalized foods. Our cravings for “sweet and salty” keep us hooked on foods we know are not good for us. Our 8 days together will step you firmly into the joy and liberation of eating beautiful, fresh foods.

We’re giving up matzah for a few reasons:

Unless you are making your own, matzah is not a fresh food. It’s been sitting in that box for a while and has lost whatever vitality It may have once had. It’s made from highly refined flour (often not organic and sometimes genetically modified). It’s not a nutrient-dense food. And, as you may already know – it contributes to constipation.

As important as matzah is symbolically, it doesn’t do good things for your digestion or energy level. We’re not saying you shouldn’t have your symbolic bites of matzah at your seders, but yes, during the program we’ll be letting go of Matzah and all gluten products.


Q. Why are we going gluten free for 8 days?

Many of us are more sensitive to wheat than we’d like to admit, and going gluten-free for 8 days is a great way to feel the impact of letting go of the wheat. We’ve worked with hundreds of women who experience more energy, better digestion, and less brain-fog when they release wheat from their diet. Our own experiences and that of many women is that excess weight starts to slip away when gluten is removed from our diet.


Q. What about the Seders? My family enjoys traditional Seder meals, and I don’t want to be on a special food program when I’m with my whole family, eating our traditional foods.

We hear ya! That’s why we won’t be starting our 8 days until after the second Seder. Our kick-off call is on Thursday, April 10th at noon EST.


Q. I’m not local to you. I live in hometown USA, can I still do the program?

Absolutely! From Matzah to Mindful: 8 days of Soulful Nutrition and Spiritual Renewal can be accessed anywhere in the world! We hope you’ll join us wherever you are!


 

“The calls and recordings were great- A good balance of mindfulness and structure and personal attention!” 

Symbolically, Passover is one of my favorite holidays. But most years, by day 3 the beauty has worn off and I’m just trudging through another box of matzah. This year, with my participation in the Matzah to Mindful program I was really able to bring a new mindfulness to my practice and enjoy the symbolism for the entire week.

The calls and recordings were great- A good balance of mindfulness and structure and personal attention! I loved the fb group and really appreciated the group encouragement.

I loved the mindfulness and the new way I was able to observe Passover this year :)
What a great way to kick start some healthy habits too!

I was proud of the commitment and mindfulness i was able to bring to making my food choices.

“The program definitely encouraged me to try new approaches and new foods.” 

The Matzah to Mindful” program is a great jumpstart for people who want to focus on more healthful eating. I was guided on a journey toward greater awareness with a host of techniques — from daily e-tips to group phone calls that allow for greater depth and discussion to a wonderful recipe book. The program definitely encouraged me to try new approaches and new foods. I was also impressed with how technologically easy everything was to access – the sign-up, the calls and access to the information. Thanks!

“Participating is like finally getting into your closet and throwing out what you do not need…” 

Matzah to Mindful was a starting point for me to know what foods would help me truly create a healthy life-style. The eight days of Passover is definitely a perfect place to start.

Participating is like finally getting into your closet and throwing out what you do not need, organizing what you have to keep and then shopping with you and a new group of friends to get what you need to make your closet perfect. The result – clothes that fit and a refresh ness both inside and out that comes from taking care of yourself.

– Barbara Fischlowitz-Leong
