Testimony of the Day

“Hi, Maria! I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes 5 weeks ago. I am 34 weeks pregnant and have lost 8 pounds in the last 5 weeks, bringing my total weight gain to 12 pounds (versus the 30 I gained in my first pregnancy and was on track to again). I feel great! Thank you for making this lifestyle transition easier. I never had pregnancy cravings, I never used the excuse of eating for two, and I never blamed pregnancy for weight gain. I just never imagined I’d be losing weight at this point and not resenting gravity like I did in my last pregnancy. I couldn’t imagine how articles about European women only gaining 10 pounds throughout pregnancy could possibly be true. This experience went from me pouting about not getting to eat the yummy carbs and sugars I was enjoying to a great lesson. It’s also been another realization of how twisted our food culture is in the US.  I’m healthier than I’ve been in a very long time and I have to thank you for the support you may not realize you provide. Blessings to you and your family as you bless me and mine!”   – Karla

Why I Love Fishing

My love of fishing started at an early age. I still remember fishing with my dad when I was just a little tike and my little brother and I would hide under the front of the boat because it started raining and my dad would say, “5 more minutes, this is when the big ones bite!” My dad has always been one of my heros. We have more in common than I ever thought we would. We both prefer to be outside whether it be fishing or in a tree stand; we both have a passion for it.

He has taught me more than I’m sure he realizes. He owns a small Plumbing and Heating shop, which I worked at a little while when I was in high school. He started his own business when I was in grade school and I remember him working all the time, even on Christmas morning. If someone’s heat would go out, he would have to leave. We would beg him to stay, but in the kindest voice he would explain to us how a little old woman was cold in her house or how a family with a little baby needed heat; and in north central Wisconsin (which is where I grew up), heat was a necessity!

His work ethic has been passed down to all of his children. I also have a drive to never quit anything. He always made me finish what I started. In high school, I wanted to quit the swim team but he said, “You don’t have to take it next year, but you have to finish what you started.” This theme happened with band, basketball, drama club… but I never quit, partly because I didn’t want to let him down. This drive of finishing things runs strong with me as an adult. I signed up to run the Hawaii marathon with 4 of my girlfriends. This marathon was very hot and hilly. The temptation of running into the 1/2 marathon chute got the best of my friends and they decided to stop at 13.1 miles, but I just couldn’t. I kept going despite the pain and finished the full marathon.

Thank you dad for teaching how to be a good fisher-woman, a small business owner, a good mother and all the other lessons you set such a good example for. I am very blessed to have you as my dad.

    Maria this is a great post, I loved reading about you and your dad. Thank you for all that you do.

  • Barbo Gold says:

    Your daddy is a FOX. No wonder you are so good looking!
    I love fishing stories. We taught all our kids to fish.
    One daughter caught a 40 lb. white sea bass in the ocean.
    We taught them up in the Sierra’s in mountain lakes.
    These are sweet pictures of wonderful times and memories.

  • Gary says:

    Your like for the Eggplant Fries doesn’t work.

  • Gabby says:

    Memories of my dad are so precious to me. Thanks for sharing yours. I grew up in Alaska (still am, I guess), so heat is essential, but fishing is life! I didn’t realize how deeply ingrained it is in our culture until my neice came up, for the first time, and she said 4 people she had just met asked her if she was fishing while she was up here. She sort of felt like it was expected of her. I had to explain that talking about fishing in Alaska is kind of like talking about the weather in farm country. With fish in the freezer, we will eat well through the winter 🙂

    My dad’s rule was that if you caught it, you cleaned it and ate it. It taught me a lot about making good use of your resources and showing gratitude and respect for all the blessing we have. So I have to pour on the love to you, Maria, because what you do is top notch! Life-changing! Inspiring! You have all my gratitude. Thanks.

  • Sarah says:

    Do you a specific plan for pregnancy? The fish looks really good. I wish I could hire you to cook for me I’m at the point in my pregnancy I don’t want to cook.

    • Sarah says:

      I meant do you have a specific plan for pregnancy.

    • cemmerich says:

      The plan doesn’t really change much. Eating this way is even more important when pregnant. Babies need lots of fats to build healthy brains. 🙂

  • Lydia says:

    Maria, would this coupon work for the “30 day plan and assessment” or just the “30 days plan”?

    • cemmerich says:

      Hi, Just for the 30 day meal plans. But the assessment add on package is a really good deal too (I used to charge $150 for just the health assessment and you get so much more in this package). 🙂

  • Julie says:

    Hi Maria,

    I was wondering if you would consider doing a post on peoples’ misconceptions about “healthy” food. (I don’t know how many times I see things where people are posting “healthy” recipes that are something like macaroni and cheese with zucchini shredded in, or something like that. It just makes me so frustrated that people are going around thinking that the vegetable somehow makes up for the highly processed pasta…) Anyway, I know you’re super busy, but it would be great to have a post/visual/download or something to reference or refer other people to.

    Thanks for reading, I love your recipes!

    Julie

    • cemmerich says:

      Yeah, that is crazy. I see a lot of it. It is a large problem to tackle. There is so much about the modern perception about what is “healthy”. Like fruit. People think because a banana has a little potassium in it its healthy even though it is loaded with sugar and 1 tablespoon of parley has more potassium than a whole banana!

  • Tina says:

    That picture of you and your dad is beautiful. Just beautiful!

  • Jennifer says:

    I have avoided eating walleye because I thought they tend to be high in mercury?

    • cemmerich says:

      Hmm, not sure about that. I know some of the bigger ocean fish can have this issue but hadn’t heard that about walleye.

  • Darlene says:

    Your post has been on my mind the past couple of days. Everyone should have such parenting! I bet if those boys in Oklahoma & Washington had had someone to take them fishing, they never would have committed those horrible acts of violence. Thanks for sharing your pics!

  • Caroline says:

    Darn it! I missed your promotion – too busy with the beginning of school. Please tell me you will do it again sometime?!

  • Caroline says:

    Oh Thank you!! I will stayed tuned!!

  • Fernanda says:

    How do you do this without the pecans?

  • Ann says:

    WOW!!! That’s the biggest fish I’ve ever seen!!! You look AMAZING!!!…I LOVE walleye by the way!…its my FAVORITE fish. Thanks so much for another amazing recipe!
