How to attend a Big Sky Body Love Retreat (next one scheduled for 2013)
Are you sick of taking vacations that make you sick? Do you just love it when someone else cooks something safe and healthy for you – no questions asked? Would you like to learn how to master a gluten-free lifestyle?
Then you’re in the right place.
In addition to an allergen-free experience, here’s what you’ll learn during my retreats:
- How to feel like you’re in control of your diet, rather than the other way around.
- How to understand what your body and mind wants to tell you about living your best life.
- How to eat mindfully, deliciously, and healthfully and make your kitchen sing.
Here’s what people who attended the 2012 retreat had to say:
I had been on the road for 2 weekends before going to this retreat. When I got to the retreat, I made it a point to shift down, and enjoy the people and place. Over the course of three days, I learned that I have made more changes and progress than I thought I had. I always tend to to think of the things I haven’t done instead of the things done. I went home determined to continue to work on my attitude and food choices. I met so many nice people while I was there – they will always be in my heart and mind.”

Before the October Wellness Retreat with Janelle, I had been a work in progress, figuring out how to take care of myself in terms of what to eat, how to best eat out successfully, and how to handle social dining situations.While at the retreat I learned I am not alone. I intellectually knew I was not alone in my navigation struggles with being gluten and grain free, but it was wonderful spending a weekend with others who shared similar struggles, and successes. I went home determined to clean up my kitchen of cross- contaminated items, and make room in my freezer for meals I’ll be cooking. Thank you Janelle for the work that you do! You have helped make a lasting impact on my gluten-free life!”

I used to give up when it came to eating gluten and dairy-free. I wouldn’t call restaurants ahead of time and I wouldn’t tell people about my dietary needs. While at the retreat, I didn’t worry about food, for once. I didn’t set an alarm clock and I turned my phone off for 3 days! I went home determined to throw out all the things that aren’t good for me, but I don’t want to ‘go to waste.’ I decided to call restaurants to ask them how they prepare their foods, and to take slow steps towards going grain-free.”
- Tina Smith: Bozeman, MT
Before this retreat, I was inconsistent with my food preparation and that resulted in some unhealthy food choices. I was also struggling with taking personal responsibility for this. While at the retreat, I learned to set aside time during each week to plan meals, make a shopping list, and how to prepare food for the coming week. I also learned that I must take personal responsibility for ensuring that this gets completed even if I must say no to other activities. As a result, I was able to consistently make healthier food choices.”
- Renee Anderson: Springfield, Missouri
Before working with Janelle, among my friends and family I did feel alone, and not normal because of my gluten-free diet. I was in constant struggle with food and always on guard. But now I recognize that I’m part of an elite community that closely monitors what we eat and cares about what we put in our bodies. I am determined to become healthier, and define who I want to become and not continue to be that poor guy who can’t eat anything. I am gluten-free, but gluten-free is NOT who I am.”
- Dale Graff: Bozeman, MT
Before this retreat, I was struggling with the thought of being gluten-free and incorporating it into my family life. At the retreat, I learned some great recipes that my family will enjoy and I was given the confidence to meal plan. The location, the food, the program was all wonderful!”
- Shelly Wear: Missoula, MT
I used to feel overwhelmed with all the food preparation that needed to be done to make changes in my family’s life. But while at the retreat I was given great tools, ideas, and resources to help plan and transition to the best possible food regimen. It was a great weekend: Empowering, thought-provoking, and helpful.”
- Lori Todd: Livingston, MT
Before this retreat, I was pretty sure I would always feel as thought I was going to go through life feeling “cheated” or missing the foods that I need to avoid. While at the retreat, I realized that so much of these feelings are just in my mind. I went home determined to work harder at meal planning and to keep up the inspiration I received there.”
