Rebound At CERDAFIED

Rebounding is an unparalleled high energy, yet low-impact workout we do wearing rebound boots. Rebounding maximizes your workout while reducing the stress and impact on your joints.

Take a chance with food…. try new things, expand your view and I think you will be surprised what you learn. Things I never thought I would try, let alone enjoy, are now part of my regular preps. The fun comes from adding my own touches and modifications to the great recipes available through some fabulous resources. The more I learn the more creative and experimental I try to be – with great resources available it is enjoyable to try new things.

2021 Year-End Rebound

A retrospect of our class in 2021 reminds us how lucky we are to have this class, this studio and this team of Rebounders. Thank you to my fabulous team of students for a great 2021.

Comforting Italian Wedding Soup

Comforting Italian Wedding Soup

Had a super cold and snowy weekend perfect for staying in, making soup and watching football. Trying new recipes and making a few of my own is both satisfying and fun. Learning from various recipe developers has been fun too. When you have the opportunity to give something new a try…go for it. What’s the worse that will happen? Doesn’t work, doesn’t look like the photo you saw (happens all the time) or maybe the taste isn’t what you thought it would be. To all that I say…so what?

Happy New Year – I hope 2022 will be a positive opportunity for you in all things you care about and are passionate about. I continue my quest to live a happier and healthier life and do it with grace. Not always easy, not always successful; but I figure if I give it my best each day…. even when my best that day is dismal, I am still headed in the right direction.

Bruschetta Pasta

Bruschetta Pasta

Was having dinner with a friend this past week and we ordered bruschetta as an appetizer. When it arrived, I thought…hmmm, I like mine better. Then I thought again, hmm wonder how this would be as a pasta dish. So that is where I started for this week. Then I thought, I needed to bulk up on veggies so went veggie heave for breakfast and lunch, creating a new and happily very tasty smoothie for the morning and roasted veggies for lunch.

Chunky Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup this week makes me feel like fall. Please remember too – making yourself a priority is not selfish…it is truly critical. Whether it’s in food prep, taking a walk, taking a great rebound class, or reading a book…. take that moment for you. Your well-being is more than food – it truly is body, mind and soul. Some days you are on it and others…not so much. Give yourself some Grace and simply go forward knowing you are worth every moment you give yourself.

Cauli Tofu Bowl and Flavor Explosion Salad

Cauli Tofu Bowl and Flavor Explosion Salad

It is all about flavor this week. Like I ask you to challenge yourself a bit when it comes to moving your body…. challenge yourself with food too. Try an ingredient you never thought you would like or try that recipe you thought you didn’t have time for previously or prep just one meal this week and see how it turns out.

What is the ingredient you have tried recently that surprised you?

Fresh Pesto and Caprese

Fresh Pesto and Caprese

Some weeks are harder than others in getting ready to meal prep if I am totally honest. Not for lack of desire but lack of time. Whenever I look at my own to do list – you know, that list I tell you to put yourself on top of, I try to fit in more of the must dos. Then I remember…I AM A MUST DO!

Springtime Soufiko

You know…it is ok to have “a day” every now and again. None of us do it all perfectly and if someone says they do….they are fibbing to you or themselves. Every day, every moment is a new opportunity to do something different, better, more interesting. I want to be health for many more years to come….I have plans, big plans

Non-Meatballs and Pasta

Never thought I would enjoy a mostly plant based diet….am I 100% there, no. However, I have gone further – with a great deal of appreciation and enjoyment – than I ever thought I would. Even my “fails” have taught me something. It is fun to try a bit of creativity and experimentation with my weekly prep.

What fun and fails have you had with your preps – be it for a specific meal or a week of meals? I can learn a lot from you too – let me know
