OUR BALANCED BUNDLE!
Presented by the Mindful Nutrition Method by McKel Kooienga MS RDN LDN
Experience Your Most Balanced Holiday Season Yet!
Discover how to find the right amount of balance throughout the holidays so you can get the nourishment you need and also actually enjoy the holiday foods and celebrations without being out of control, feeling guilty, or needing to “reset” come January.
Are you already feeling...
Stressed about food as we approach the holiday season?
If you’ve been struggling with your relationship with food or your weight, the holiday season can be extra challenging with so many social events and family gatherings.
With food at the center of these events, gatherings, and celebrations, it can feel extra difficult to practice balance and not overindulge because everything feels so special and delicious.
Unfortunately, we see that many people make the mistake of going into the holiday season with specific rules they set for themselves about what they can and cannot eat to try to navigate all of the food that’s available.
These types of rules sound like...
“I’m just not going to allow myself to eat any sweets throughout the holidays so I don’t get off track.”
“I’m only going to eat the bad foods on actual Thanksgiving or Christmas day — the rest of the time I’ll be good and avoid the treats.”
“I’ll only eat the “healthy” treats and I’ll just stay away from the traditional ones that are loaded with sugar and butter.”
“I’ll skip breakfast and lunch so I can have all of the enjoyable foods at dinner and for dessert without feeling guilty about it.”
“I already have a detox plan lined up for after the holidays so I can make up for all of the bad foods I’m going to be eating.”
If you put these rules and restrictions on yourself rather than practicing balanced eating every day, this is what happens:
❌ you’ll spend the holiday season constantly stressing about your food choices
❌ you’ll be more likely to overeat and beat yourself up for doing so
❌ you won’t be able to enjoy the holiday foods and celebrations with with your friends and family
❌ you’ll be more likely to feel pulled towards diets and detoxes come January (which don’t support your health and long-term habits)
Holiday experiences centered around food shouldn’t feel like this.
It’s possible for you to enjoy all the social gatherings, celebrations with friends and family, traveling and experience other cultures’ foods, all while nourishing yourself with the nutrients you need.
Balanced eating gives you this experience!

YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEN US ON
Hi, I’m McKel, Registered Dietitian and the creator of the Mindful Nutrition Method™
With more than a decade of experience, I saw firsthand how many of my clients struggled with an imbalance with their eating habits, from unsupportive mindsets to a tendency to be disconnected from their food experience.
Through working with thousands of clients and members, I created a method that made it possible for you to overcome these imbalances and instead create the balanced eating habits you deserve so you be free from food and diet obsession, maintain a balanced weight, and cultivate a positive relationship with food and your body, and ultimately find joy in nourishing yourself.
Wondering If This Bundle Is For You?
This is for you if...
✔️ you love the holidays but they also stress you out because of the food
✔️ you’ve found it difficult to stop eating (even when you’ve realized you had plenty) because everything is so special and delicious and not available all-year
✔️ you have family and friends who often pressure you to eat or who make comments on what you’re eating (or not eating)
✔️ you feel like you’re doomed throughout the holiday season — there’s no way you’re going to be able to stay balanced with so many delicious food being available all of the time
✔️ you’re putting rules in place in your mind thinking that avoiding all the sweets or only allowing yourself to eat the treats on Thanksgiving or Christmas day is going to work and make you more balanced
✔️ you’re already in the mindset that you’ll just get back on track in January and you’re treating the holidays as your “last hoorah” before the diet begins
✔️ ready to take the first, manageable step towards more balance without it feeling overwhelming or time-consuming
How These Tools Have Supported Our Students With Staying Balanced
“The Foundational Five was especially helpful as I don't typically overeat when I have something nutritious in front of me. Knowing that food can still be enjoyable and healthy was really great and not having a plan to stick to but rather being encouraged to find what works for me was amazing. I am now setup with tools that I feel I can use throughout this journey and for that I am so grateful.”
“It’s really possible to lead a life where I don’t stress about food choices for every meal and really make it a lifestyle change! I’ve tried some of those fads and diets and they are just unrealistic long term and I end up feeling worse afterward because I’m unable to stay “on track.”
“I really love the approach of being educated, knowing what to put on my plate and what to look for when building a meal has had a really positive impact on me...I think it’s more freeing knowing that I have so many choices of what to eat now. I had pizza and like knew that it was ok and for the first time in a while I didn’t feel guilty, and I had a side salad with it, drank extra water and the next morning I went back to my normal routine. I have food freedom now, I eat a ton of different foods and never feel restricted.”
“These skills radically changed my healthy eating world!... I've been able to feed my family well because of the principles I have learned through McKel’s approach.”
“There were a few ‘guilty’ thoughts here and there but I was able to acknowledge them and move on...guilt-free... This was the first Thanksgiving I could remember I didn’t have a diet plan or fast ready to commence on Friday!
— Kellie C.
"I’m feeling so in control of my food, nutrition and overall well-being. I’ve been noticing this past week that it’s not hard anymore. In the past I’ve been entirely inconsistent in the way I care for myself. And suddenly I’m finding a peace and calm and confidence about all of it. I’m actually doing it. For the first time. And it’s working. I’m practicing compassion for myself, learning from different situations and building habits that are becoming a lifestyle. In reflecting this week I truly can’t believe how much has changed in my overall relationship with food. I’m free, not perfect. And it feels amazing."
