Review How Passion Becomes a Unique Cookbook: The Challenges and Joys of Self-Publishing with Katie Carter, NC, CYT

As a certified yoga teacher and nutrition consultant and a life long camper, Katie Carter felt confident to pursue her vision of a healthy camp cookbook that included yoga at the rest stop. Katie’s presentation will describe her 2 1/2 year journey of dreaming, writing, hiring a coach, deciding to self-publish, market and sell her 'one of a kind' cookbook, Nourishing Meals on Camper Wheels ...and Yoga at the Rest Stop.

Katie shares how her book began on a camping trip that turned into a healing retreat. She realized that camping is truly mind/body medicine when viewed as a time to relax, connect with nature, sleep in sync with circadian rhythm, eat healthy meals and allow your creative spirit to come alive! 

Join us as we welcome Hawthorn Nutrition Consultant program graduate Katie Carter for her presentation How Passion Becomes a Unique Cookbook: The Challenges and Joys of Self-Publishing.

Katie's presentation recording is now available for review in our Webinar Archives.

Katie states, “I never thought of myself as a writer, but I journal all the time and wrote a blog each month. I also wrote text and recipes for over 30 group cleanses and weight loss programs. My writing coach told me I was a writer with all my journal entries of thoughts, inspirations and recipes for healthy living. Now I want to inspire Hawthorn students to incorporate their nutrition degrees and certifications in not only their food and lifestyle choices but also their hopes and dreams for their future.”

Katie lives in a small town and says that nutrition clients were steady for the first 5 years. Then the Internet came into full swing with many online nutrition resources and doctors with a team helping them promote their business, supplements and wisdom. Her age was a factor in not wanting to go viral or do Skype calls with out-of-town clients, so she decided to write the book she had been dreaming about.   

In this presentation Katie will share all the obstacles, support and joys she experienced on the road to self-publish a very successful camping cookbook.  

Katie Carter loves to cook. Watch out!  Her enthusiasm and boundless energy for creating and sharing recipes is contagious. Certified as a nutrition consultant and yoga teacher, Katie inspires us to eat healthy meals and keep our bodies strong and limber – even when traveling. When not in her kitchen she loves to garden, make art, teach nutrition and yoga classes or explore the great outdoors with her husband Bill. Her nutritional knowledge and passion for healthy living will ignite your camping and eating experience to another level. Katie lives on 5 acres in Nevada City, CA with her husband.

Watch Introducing Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System – Part 2 with Heather Ciprani

Hawthorn MSHN program student Heather Ciprani joins us again to review the physiology of the body's endocannabinoid system and how it is affected by ingesting cannabis. Based on research and her own clinical experiences she will delve into the disease/pathophysiology and what cannabis can do to influence it. She will provide instructions for the best preparation techniques for addressing a wide range of conditions, the proper dosing methods, the contraindications and other unintended results.

Hawthorn welcomes back Heather Ciprani for Part 2 of her 2-part webinar presentation Introducing Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System – Part 2.

Heather's webinar recording is available for review in our Webinar Archives HERE.

Heather started working with the cannabis plant in Humboldt County and eventually on many different farms learning farming methods and all the various stages of growing. Being exposed to many different farms’ processing methods provided great insight. Being an avid learner, Heather attended different workshops learning to make her own medicine, concentrating on high CBD cultivars since most growers weren’t focused there yet.

This presentation will further address the cannabis plant and the endocannabinoid system to give you a deeper understanding of how it works and what the therapeutics applications are. We will cover all the aspects to consider when using cannabis and you will be equipped with the knowledge of the latest research. The information is not meant to diagnose or treat disease.

This webinar will be valuable to students and healthcare professionals, practitioners of the healing arts, dispensary workers, and medical cannabis users who want to understand the science of cannabis and its effects on the whole body.  

Up until legalization, there has been much controversy regarding this plant, and education and research had been constrained. Wanting more formal training, Heather completed the Holistic Cannabis Practitioner Certification with the Holistic Cannabis Academy and is currently a few classes away from starting her Thesis for her Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition (MSHN) degree with Hawthorn University. Heather’s goal is to incorporate cannabis research in her thesis.

Watch Nutrition from Hobby to Passion and Beyond - Embracing the Fullness of the Nutrition Journey with Amanda-Jo Wilt

Please join us as we sit down to speak with Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt, Hawthorn Alum and Founder of Redeemed Image™, as she introduces herself and shares about her unique nutrition-consulting journey. What started as a hobby quickly morphed into a passion and has taken her much farther than she could have anticipated. She taught her first nutrition class as a volunteer at a local women’s prison. Then she started a company in an effort to facilitate a way to further reach her community. AJ would have never guessed her simple hobby would become such a wonderful avenue for pouring back into her community. Whether you are studying nutrition as a hobby or have goals for a thriving career you will be encouraged by her story and simple message of service.  

Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt presents Nutrition from Hobby to Passion and Beyond: Embracing the Fullness of the Nutrition Journey, on Hawthorn’s All About Alumni Webinar Series. AJ's presentation is now available for review in the Hawthorn Webinar Archives.

The nutrition-consulting journey need not slip into the mundane or grow stale. There is a fullness that comes to the journey when we allow the science of nutrition and the human aspect to intermingle. Join us as we “forget” about nutrition for just a moment and divert our attention to the wonderful journey it takes us on.

Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt completed Hawthorn University’s Nutrition Consultant Program in December 2017, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Her passion for nutrition started as a teenager and grew as a result of her various health struggles. AJ is the founder of Redeemed Image™, a Certified Color Analyst, minimalist, homesteader, chronic researcher, organizer, and a Certified Volunteer Chaplain Assistant (CVCA) with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), and a Holistic Nutrition Consultant. She started and ran a successful faith-based dorm in a local women’s prison where she also often served in the capacity of the unit chaplain. While volunteering she realized just how desperately the offender population needed education on nutrition and exercise. As it is said, “your gift will make a way” and indeed her gifts opened a door much wider than she could have anticipated. She was able to host weekly workouts and the many nutrition classes she taught quickly became unit favorites. AJ’s start as a nutrition consultant had a very unconventional beginning and her passion for the unconventional approach and client has only grown.

Review The Power of the Right Diet in Digestive and Immune Issues: How do you Choose? with Dr. Liz Lipski

There are many therapeutic dietary approaches to working with people who have immune and digestive issues. It’s difficult to know which approach to take. With so many options, it’s good to begin with food. Often within a week or two, the right person on the right diet for them at that moment, will feel a lot better than they have in a long time.

Hawthorn welcomes Dr. Liz Lipski for her webinar presentation The Power of the Right Diet in Digestive and Immune Issues: How do you Choose? This webinar recording is now available to review in our Webinar Archives.

This webinar will focus on the clinical thought process to provide for the best therapeutic benefit. We’ll explore the current research on specific therapeutic diets and how to determine which may work best by looking at the core root issue. Is this an antigenic or inflammation reaction, dysbiosis, or enzyme insufficiencies? What diagnosis or diagnoses does this person present with?  

Approaches to be explored include: Mediterranean diet, FODMAP diet, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, 6-food Elimination Diet, Comprehensive Elimination Diet, Paleo-Immune, Elemental Diet, and a restorative diet for people who have several maldigestion or malabsorption issues. 

Learning Objectives:
1. The attendee will be able to more easily discern which dietary plan may provide the best therapeutic outcome for a specific client;
2. Utilize root cause issues to determine recommendations;
3. Gain practical skills and tools to utilize in a clinical setting.
