Introducing “Mindful Mediterranean”
The “Mindful Mediterranean” program spans four weeks beginning on Sunday, October 2nd, 2022. The program is a mix of Video and bi-weekly live Zoom sessions with Chef Laura Bonicelli. Included are customizable menus and recipes all housed within the Bonicelli Cooking Club’s “recipe box”.
“Mindful Mediterranean” is designed to instruct, guide, and inspire you towards a joyful and sustainable healthy lifestyle.
No points, no reoccurring monthly fees, no calorie counting, you won’t be tied to your phone or computer.
Here are the details:
Based on the much-lauded Mediterranean philosophy of eating
We are all familiar with the “Mediterranean diet”. Medical professionals overwhelmingly view this way of eating as being the healthiest on the planet. the “Mindful Mediterranean” program is based on that philosophy and delivers a simple “how-to” method that includes all cuisines and can be adjusted for all food preferences.
Exciting adjustable menus and recipes
Everybody has food preferences, and some of us even have food intolerances and allergies. We also have outside obligations that can make a “one-size-fits-all” menu unworkable. The menus written specifically for the program are completely customizable in the “recipe box”. You can pick from hundreds of options and even add in your own ingredients and recipes. The program also allows you to scale recipes and create shopping lists.
All foods and recipes are divided into two simple categories
“Mindful Mediterranean” is all about knowing what to eat, and I promise you, you will eat well. We came up with a set of rules and two categories (Green and Blue) to put foods and recipes into to help you make your decisions. The whole plan fits on an 81/2 x 11” sheet of paper. It doesn’t get easier than that. From there, we make it even simpler by giving you menus and guidelines, so you’ll have a plan for each week and be able to make instant decisions about what you eat in any situation.
Evaluation and tracking tools
Our past experiences, changes in our bodies, events in our lives, even the passage of time has an effect on our attitudes towards and state of our health. We have created a workbook to help you to think about, write about, and talk about those significant influences, and chef Laura will guide you through it. This process will help you define goals that you can monitor and achieve using our program and tools.
Bi-weekly group coaching sessions
Research shows that accountability, consistency, and comradery increase your ability to achieve goals. In that spirit, you can choose between a morning and evening time for each of the “Menu Review Sessions” (every Sunday), and the “Accountability Check-in Sessions” (every Wednesday).
Mini classes to address special situations and circumstances
We all have our personal living situations and can be faced with all kinds of obstacles that can require some navigation skill to keep your participation in Mindful Mediterranean in place. To help with that, we’ll be scheduling a series of mini-classes throughout the program, some with additional necessary resources. Topics include “Planning and Cooking for a Family”, How-to Transport and Reheat Food – in the office and on the road”. “Cooking for one”, “Ignoring the good opinion of others – a polite guide to naysayers and food pushers”, and “Eating in Restaurants”.
Full access to Bonicelli Cooking Club during program
Mindful Mediterranean draws on many of the resources within the cooking club, therefore it makes sense to make all of the club’s content accessible to Mindful Mediterranean participants. You will have access to hundreds of hours of video, the entire recipe library, Saturday live cooking webinars, and more, for the duration of the program.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee for 7 Days
Participate in the first week of the program if it's not for you, we'll refund your money - no questions asked.
Here’s what people are saying about the M&M program
in a healthy groove
“Over the years, try as I may, I just couldn’t get in a healthy groove with my diet and exercise, but one good thing leads to another. Once I got settled into the Mindful Mediterranean program and really took hold of the principles, I easily added yoga into my morning practice. I love it!”
ready for the next live sessions
‘My wife and I worked on this together. The timing was tricky because of other obligations, but the plan is so simple to follow; we did exceedingly well with it. We’re looking forward to the next live sessions because we’ll be freer, and we can build on the habits we’ve started.”
empowering each person
"This program for me is about developing a healthy relationship with food and empowering each person to find what works best for them when it comes to making healthy food choices. It’s a great foundation for reshaping how you think about cooking “good for you” meals-this program taught me that healthy recipes can also be delicious! As a working mom with a toddler, I also loved that the program was flexible enough that I could find what worked best for my busy schedule (and picky eater!)."
the program is easy
"Why would I encourage someone to join the Mindful Mediterranean program? That is easy...the program is easy. There are a few rules to follow; they are easy to memorize. There is no counting calories or recording what you ate? There is no need for that because if you follow the rules, the program works. The recipes are stellar. There are many of them and they are all good. If you don't like one thing, there are many other recipes you can use. But, if you are not a recipe-person, this program still works...just follow the rules and plan your own meals. There is flexibility in this program that other programs don't have. And, You WILL lose weight and, maybe even more importantly, you WILL alter your eating habits to support a more healthful you."
staying for the recipes
I have been gradually, but steadily, losing weight while I'm eating better than I ever have in my life. I joined for the "Mindful Mediterranean" program just to give it a try, but I upgraded to a cooking club membership to keep my access to the program and the recipes. Now I think in "green" and "blue"!
tired of takeout
I didn't need to lose weight, but I had been eating take-out every night and just didn't feel great. I loved the idea of a plan that incorporated recipes and interaction. The weekly webinars that coincide with the plan are so fun, and the Zoom calls afterward are a great way to connect.
