Meal Plans for Every Lifestyle
For the busy health conscious person, it’s sometimes hard to figure out meals that support your health goals. You try your best. It gets repetitive eating the same basic meals all the time. This might cause you to make bad choices over the long haul.
Some of you are new to paleo or just too busy or can’t quite figure it all out. You, can try new foods and learn new tricks to add to your eating plan. Why struggle to figure out all of the metrics on calories, and macros when someone else has done it for you?
It’s a Family affair
What parent hasn’t felt the guilt of serving something, less than healthy, to their kids? Kirsty created a menu membership product for the whole family! It’s called Real Food Family Style. All of the information on calories, and macro nutrients are included. You don’t have to feel the guilt of serving your family junk food for dinner just because you had to work overtime this week.
Kirsty Briscoe is the founder of Paleo Folks; grain free baking mix company, health coaching agency, and curated meal planning service all in one! Their paleo pancake mix and chocolate chip cookie mix are both top paleo products at Whole Foods Market and on Amazon! Kirsty struggled with health, wellness, and her weight for most of her life, and paleo changed it all for her. As a former teacher, sharing the paleo diet in an easy to understand way is a deep passion for her! She specializes in paleo for busy people, moms and kids, and budget conscious healthy eaters.

The Life Coach for Insomnia and Sleep Disorders – this episode is a wake up call, and a genuine eye-opener where Derek Lacey and yours truly discuss his theory on the leading causes of poor sleep, and insomnia. This self-professed “Life Coach for insomniacs”, thinks that artificial blue light from televisions, cellphones, and artificial lighting from LED, and fluorescent sources are not allowing us fall into a proper circadian sleep cycle. He further states that the lack of exposure to full spectrum light (Daylight) doesn’t allow the proper hormones and nutrients to be released by our eyes.
Derek’s solutions are practical and available for any of you who are suffering from insomnia and sleep disorders. His approach is based in science, and common sense. I urge you to listen to this podcast, and finally get some good sleep. Your life depends on it!
Derek Lacey Bio
Derek Lacey is a Sleep Coach who works with Insomniacs to discover their own power and internal resistance to sleep.
As a former Insomniac himself, Derek’s lifestyle brought him to rock bottom, with no solution for rising above. His commitment to a whole new set of habits around food, mindset, and spirituality helped him overcome his greatest lifestyle challenges, even beyond Insomnia. He began to see life differently and understand how to use his unique skills as a communicator and connector to influence the lives of others.
As a speaker, Derek offers a unique way to make incredibly complex scientific information about sleep accessible, inspiring audiences to make simple but radical changes to their lifestyle. As a coach, he enables people to rapidly transform their lives through good sleep.
Derek Lacey explains his unique approach to insomnia and sleep disorders
It’s difficult to one day decide it’s time to make sincere changes in your life so you can start sleeping again. Part of what makes that so challenging are the listless options you might be tempted to try instead, offered by people who really do know a lot about sleep. Their knowledge isn’t the problem, it’s the confidence you have in yet another sleep product, idea, or sleep tip to reverse years of sleeplessness or acute insomnia. This part is rarely, at least I’ve never seen it, addressed. In a way, these things are destined to not work before you even try them.
Not because they aren’t proven, but because what is missing, in my opinion, is the understanding for what an Insomniac is going through and the compassion for the catch 22 lifestyle they experience that’s posing the bigger problem.
It’s not just about falling asleep!
That puts more pressure on this “thing” to work so that you can start sleeping. Then there are no back up plans or victories of any kind to celebrate when they don’t work or stop working. There is no system to it. With so much pressure on something working, no wonder you’ve never heard of the sleep supplement that saved the day!
As a life coach for Insomniacs, this is where my approach is radically different. It is of the highest priority for me to help you experience a higher quality life, before you actually start sleeping better and not the other way around.
“Insomniacs appreciate sleep more than anybody else, because of the ‘or else’ factor.”
“It’s about avoiding toxic light, and also getting the good light. If you’ve got insomnia, and you’re not doing that, you need to start.”
“I call myself a life coach for insomniacs, because I’ve never met a person with a sleep problem. They’ve got life problems that affect their sleep.”
