From the Desk of Tera Warner

Dear Health-Seeking Heroine,

Remember those episodes of Little House on the Prairie? The efficient use of space, the warm, family meals by the fire. The sense of responsability and connection that everyone felt to each other, to the land, to making life all go right. 

While we don’t need to go back to candle light and peeing in a pot under the bed, but we have come a loooong way from healthy, sustainable living and it’s starting to hurt our families, our health and our environment. 

We’ve gone beyond the idea that there is “one right way to eat”. Some people thrive on plant foods, but others do not. 
We’ve gone beyond trying to figure out “what” to eat. The truth is simple. The closer you get to Nature, and the closer that Nature is to you, the better it is foryou, your health  and the environment.  

As a single mom of two kids, driving in and out of the city to grab my packaged salad ingredients from California, my fruit from Mexica, my goji berries and chia seeds from China just doesn’t work anymore. I’m sitting in the middle of the Laurentian forest surrounded by fresh food and medicine I cannot use because I do not recognize it, don’t understand how to find it, gather it, prepare it and store it for the cold season.

I want to feel empowered, equipped to thrive and I want to be in a harmonious relationship with my food, my environment and my health. That’s why I called up my dear friend, Frank Giglio (someone whose passion and commitment to ethical and environmental and sustainable living for his family is something I admire tremendously) and I asked him if he would be willing to teach us a few things or two, and here’s what we’ve put together: 

The Women’s Wellness University proudly presents…

Meet Your Course Teachers:

Frank Giglio, Healthy Homesteader and Passionate Chef

healthy homesteader course with frank giglio

Frank Giglio wears many hats. At age 15, he fell in love with the fascinating world of food. Eager and intrigued, he began apprenticing directly under some of the top chefs in the US, which instilled a deep understanding of the creative process in working with food, and infused in him the importance of fine arts mastery, since tastes and flavors create an artistic passion for creating delicious and nourishing cuisine. He became a classically trained chef at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT, and a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC.

While Giglio’s culinary offerings are based in classic technique and traditional foods preparation, he has also been immersed in using food as medicine. Wearing his chef’s hat, he focuses on sustainable cuisine, seeking the highest quality foods grown locally and harvested in season, supporting the crucial farm to table method of preparing food. He remains deeply connected to the earth in his daily life, merging herbalism and living food nutrition with wild food foraging. Frank creates innovative dishes that are wholesome, full of vitality and have a very small ecological footprint. He is blessed to share this passion with his clients and also with his wife and their young son.

Having just moved to an off-the-grid homestead in rural Maine, Giglio enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, which he believes directly influences his time in the kitchen. He competes in endurance events through the mountains, prowls the woods for wild edibles, seeks out and collects spring water, seamlessly blending his love of nature with his love for food and authentic nourishment.

This is NOT your average “university” course!!

It’s not just what you know…

Most people are suffering from an excess of information. They’re addicted to the next e-book and looking for a quick fix solution, but they load themselves up with information they do not use.

How much of the information you have are you actually using?

Our Women’s Wellness University courses are different because you can

  • learn, in the comfort of your own home, the backbone of life–the nitty gritty information you really need to know to feel empowered about your health and your family’s health!
  • be sure you are only passed the nuggets you need to know–all of the fluff and unnecessary stuff has been taken off the top, so your time is focused, productive and well spent?
  • know that 3/4 of the time, support and attention is given to the application and practical use of data, not the data itself!
  • trust that the teachers are a blast, the tests were based on real life experiences, and at the end of the course you will feelconfident being able to apply the information you’ve a to improve your health and your family’s well-being!

Here’s How This Course Work:

This course will begin with a preparation week. Enough time for you to get acquainted with our resources, community, all the links and information you need to get started. Then every week we’ll send you a new lecture, video or assignment according to the module and course outline. Generally, you will not be expected to spend more than 20 minutes getting acquainted with the core information each week!! But…that 20 minutes will be packed with info that you will be able to take an entire week to implement in your daily life. Each week’s lesson will come with a practical assignment that you’ll be expected to complete at the end of the week BEFORE your next module begins. Further instructions, support, details on how to access the curriculum and the community will be made available upon registering!

The core focus of our program is IMPLEMENTATION and action so you get the results you’re looking for in your life. (We’re not gonna stuff your noggin with more data you don’t need. We want to keep it practical and powerful.)

Here’s What to Do Next:

Decide you’re ready to learn the nitty gritty about life, health and well-being and empower you and your family with the sustainable health and lifestyle skills you need to thrive with confidence in life.
