Are you trying to eat healthier and looking for a simple guide to kick your butt back in the kitchen – but not spend your time living in there?

    This guide is for you if you experience the following challenges:

    • You find yourself overwhelmed, causing you to make poor eating choices

    • You make yourself the same boring foods and salads for so long, until you’ve gotten so sick of them that you start finger cooking instead (AKA order UberEats on your phone)

    • Or maybe you eat super healthy Monday to Friday, but the moment the weekend rolls around you’re devising what you want to stuff your face with.

    How nice would it feel to have a menu all planned out for you every week for the next 21 days?

    This is MORE than just your regular chicken and broccoli meal prep.

    This is designed by a Certified Nutritionist who has collected years of client struggles and created a solution to help simplify healthy eating.

    Are you looking to break out of old, unhealthy eating habits and infuse more flavour and plant-based dishes into your cooking routine? I know how challenging it can be to eat more vegetables when struggling to find creative ways to enjoy them. This is why I've created the Healthy Vegan Middle Eastern Cooking Workshop, to introduce you to one of the healthiest diets in the world (similarly related to the popular Mediterranean diet). I'll show you how easy it is to enjoy a predominately plant-based way of eating for sustained weight loss and increased energy. You’ll leave with the know-how, skills and confidence to embark on your own healthy culinary adventure.

    Join me for a fun and casual cooking workshop where you will...

    • learn the benefits of eating predominately plant-based
    • enjoy an educational food demo where I'll be showing you how to prepare 5 Middle Eastern staples while sharing nutritional benefits of each of the ingredients
    • experience a mezza feast of Lebanese dishes and non-alcoholic refreshments
    • receive a swag bag of delicious and healthy products to take home and start using in your cooking!
    • BONUS! Master the basic footwork of the traditional Lebanese dance called "dabke" with live Arabic music!
    This plant based workshop is for you if you're looking to learn how to...
    • Increase your energy
    • Improve skin health
    • Maintain a healthy weight
    • Reduce inflammation
    • Improve your digestion
    • Add variety and flavour to your cooking
    • Incorporate more plant based dishes into your diet
    Enjoy a fun-filled and educational evening inside the cozy space of Anti Vice Juicery, while I show you how to make these famously loved meat-free Middle Eastern dishes:
    • hummus
    • fattoush salad
    • baked falafel with a tahini sauce
    • pickled turnips
    • medjool date dessert bites
    NOTE: This vegan menu will be free of gluten, corn, refined sugar and soy. This workshop will be a food demo led by Maya with Q&A throughout the evening. Participants will not be preparing the recipes, but will be eating them instead!   Growing up in a Middle Eastern household I was lucky enough to enjoy delicious collections of small and savoury Lebanese dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner! This style of shared-plate dining is known as "mezza" and it's how people who live in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries traditionally eat. Many of these dishes are loaded with anti-inflammatory foods and built upon high fibre, plant-based foods and healthy fats to improve overall health. My mom's love for cooking traditional Middle Eastern staples has since continued into my kitchen as part of my healthy diet, and now I'm here to share my healthiest and most flavourful dishes with you! Can't wait to have you join me for a fun night of culinary adventures!
  • Do you feel like it's time to hit the reset button and get yourself ready for Summer time? If you are feeling the need to scrub out your insides and clean up your diet, a nutritionist-tested detox is the best solution to reset your body by eliminating all the built up toxins.

    But what are toxins anyway?  A toxin is a chemical or poison that is known to have harmful effects on the body. Toxins can come from additives in our food, pesticides on our produce, toxic contaminants in our water, chemicals found in household products, and toxic compounds from environmental pollution. Sometimes we willingly expose ourselves to even more toxins like alcohol, cigarette smoke, sugar, and junk food. Good news is that our bodies are specifically designed to remove those toxins through organs like the liver and kidneys and eliminate them in the form of sweat, urine, and feces. However, the unfortunate news is that because of lifestyle, food, and environmental burdens in our modern society, our bodies have trouble keeping up with this bombardment of daily toxic exposure. This is where signs and symptoms in our bodies reveal themselves, which can include:  
    • trouble losing weight
    • brain fog
    • unexplained exhaustion
    • insomnia
    • unexplained headaches
    • mood swings
    • bad body odour
    • constipation
    • muscle aches and pains
    • skin reactions or allergies
    • depression
    • reduced libido
    • sensitivity to scents
    • indigestion/bloating

    This 30 Day Challenge is designed to help you:

    • Shed excess fat
    • Cleanse your body
    • Boost your energy to power through your day & workouts
    • Heal digestive system complaints
    • Improve bowel function
    • Ramp up metabolism

  • I strongly believe that the one step anyone can take in order to feel and look healthier is to learn how to cook for themselves. This is why I created 'The Balanced Body Food Guide', to help remove the overwhelm of preparing healthy balanced meals by creating 6 Step-By-Step Blueprints that you can refer to each time you put together your own meal. On top of this, you get to learn which foods best support your liver and understand how to seamlessly include them in your day to day eating plan to keep your bod in tip top shape.

    After you get the hang of creating sensibly balanced meals for yourself, I’m absolutely certain you will feel and look amazing in no time. But more than just these immediate results, I hope these blueprints will inspire you to make lasting changes to your diet and lifestyle so you continue to save time in the kitchen, build healthier habits and experience continued optimal health and body weight.

    Why is it important to take care of your liver?
    Essentially, your liver is the 'detox factory', where it makes sure it's filtering the bad guys (toxins and waste) and keeping the good guys (useful nutrients) to synthesize hundreds of biochemicals that your body needs for daily functioning. In this modern day we are living in, we are bombarded with so many toxins that our liver has a hard time keeping up, making us feel sluggish, foggy brained, dealing with breakouts, and finding it harder and harder to lose excess fat. The Balanced Body Food Guide gives you the tools to put together meals that continuously support liver detoxification so you can feel good about your day to day eating choices, knowing you're doing a service to your health and the state of your liver.
    The Balanced Body Food Guide is designed to help you:
    • learn how to effectively construct nutrient dense meals in appropriate portions
    • reduce cravings
    • experience sustainable weight loss
    • increase energy
    • improve performance in your workouts
    • improve your sleep
    • heal digestive system complaints
    • improve bowel function
    • ramp up metabolism
    • support liver detoxification
    • continually cleanse your body using fresh, whole foods
