We’ve talked lots about improving health and losing weight naturally by eating high nutrient whole foods. I’m profoundly grateful that these foods have delivered great health and natural weight loss to my life and to the lives of so many others.
I’ve also mentioned my many years of searching for how people can become self-sufficient and maintain great health and weight loss on their own. And recently I’ve discovered an amazing approach I want to share with you.
Dr. Amy Johnson, a psychologist and life coach, explains how she became free of binge eating. Watching her in a number of YouTube videos, I realized she was showing people how to be free of limiting habits by walking through the door of that habit or perceived problem. This got my attention.
After learning more, I began sharing her approach with some of my current weight loss clients, and I see great possibility. I’m considering studying with Dr. Amy to become a life-coach using her approach and I’d like your help.
I’m offering my services free to work with 3 or 4 people who haven’t been successful maintaining healthy eating or keeping their weight off. If you are interested in discussing this, please let me know by emailing me through the “Contact Me” tab above, or the “Leave a Reply” section below. I’ll get back to you right away and we can chat.
In her book, The Little Book of Big Change, Dr. Amy points out that we create limiting habits and perpetuate them with our thoughts. Our natural state is fundamentally habit free. She says, “We create habits that may look crazy, but they’re here as the best way we could see to feel better when we needed it.”
Her precept is that thinking creates habits, and insight into the nature of one’s thinking can free them from those habits. Dr. Amy says, “Our habits are built upon, experienced, and maintained by the thoughts that arise within when we view them as truth.”
When we begin to understand how our thinking creates habits, often insights arise that can unravel those habits. And the best part is that it isn’t complex
If something in this brief description interests you, take a look at this YouTube video with Dr. Amy or read her book. And if you want to explore my free offer to work together, let me know and we can chat. I’m so excited about the possibilities this work offers.
Today’s recipe is a Mexican casserole that is totally delicious. It uses Amy’s canned organic refried beans and chili, which have very clean ingredients and are totally yummy. They are the only canned beans we use. I always like making beans from scratch, and I must say that these beans and chili taste so amazing, we use them in this dish. See what you think.
To Your Amazing Health,
12 corn tortillas
1 can Amy’s organic Refried Beans
1 can Amy’s organic Chili
2 packets of La Frontera Enchilada Sauce
1/2 bag frozen corn
1 onion, diced
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 jar of medium heat tomato salsa
1 200 ml can sliced black olives, drained
1 4 oz. can diced Ortega chilis
2 jalepeno peppers, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped in pieces
1 lime, juiced
- Pre-heat oven to 425º
- Lightly sauté the diced onion in a small pan with the coconut oil while prepping the other veggies.
- In a bowl mix beans, Ortega chilis (with the liquid), salsa, lime juice, 1/2 the black olives, 1/2 the corn, 1/2 the red pepper, 1/2 the onion, 1/2 the cilantro, and 1/2 the jalapeño.
- In an 9” x 13” baking dish, pour one of the packets of enchilada sauce.
- Place 6 tortillas over the sauce.
- Cover the tortillas with the above bean and veggie mixture.
- Cover this with 6 more tortillas.
- Pour the other packet of enchilada sauce over the tortillas.
- Cover the top with the remaining onion, red pepper, cilantro, jalapeño, corn and olives.
Cover with foil and bake at 425º for 40 minutes, then turn down to 375º for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes. Then serve. The cooling makes it easy to cut into pieces and serve. Also, leftovers reheat well in a frying pan.
This size casserole gives the two of us three meals. So delicious.
