Many women don’t realize that ALL of these
can be caused by hormone imbalance:

  • Belly fat & Cellulite
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Food cravings
  • Incontinence
  • Facial hair
  • Bouts of anger
  • Muscle loss
  • Forgetfulness
  • Breast lumps
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Sagging skin
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of motivation
  • Hair loss
  • Mood swings
  • Body aches & pains
  • Feeling “tired but wired”
  • Crying for no reason
  • Breast & ovarian cancer

When you suffer from one or more of these, most doctors simply say:

“It’s in your head”
“Eat healthy”
“Take this pill”
“Exercise more”
“Take a vacation”
“Let’s put you on birth control pills”

Do you INTUITIVELY feel like that’s just not good advice? 
You are right. And, you can change that.

You are not alone

Introducing the 6-week Online Cooking Program

The hormone-tailored online cooking program that will transform what you know about nutrition and your hormones forever. Featuring Classes, Done-for-You Guides, Training Videos, over 80 hormone-supporting Recipes, Cooking Videos, a support group and more.

Eating right is different than eating “well”

One of the biggest challenges with today’s nutrition is the war of diets and protocols that promise results and transformation. In reality, most of them fail… not because they are bad but because they don’t recognize and respect that each person has different nutritional needs.

There is no “one size fits all” diet.

The food that makes me feel good is different from the food that YOU need. Let’s respect and honor that.

In Cooking for Balance, I will teach you how to listen to your body and learn what food it loves and what it rejects.

Jocelyn Dunstan Escudero

Ph.D Physicist and Researcher

Challenges: Didn’t know what to eat • Digestive problems • Bloating • Gluten and dairy sensitivity • Irregular periods

Her story: I’ve learned to eat savory breakfasts and I’m never hungry now. • The chocolate hazelnut smoothie fixes all my cravings. • This is really empowering. • I love the Done-for-You Guides; they show how you can make simple food so nutritious. • There are so many great recipes here using gelatin. • This program is not just about recipes but about hormonal education and information.

Lisa Bentovoglio

Health Advocate and Smoothie Queen

Challenges: No time to cook • Adrenal fatigue • Food sensitivities • PCOS • Fear of getting off birth control pills

Her story: The program teaches you the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ to eat. • I love to cook but I’m a lazy chef. The Done-for-you Guides make it a no-brainer. • This program gave me the tools to get off birth control pills and I feel great. • The Cravings Guide helped you understand what my body really needed from me. • I learned how to make proper smoothies, not the ones I used to make, full of sugar. • My favorite recipe: nut cheeses!

Sandy Cardy

Author, Speaker and Transformational Educator

Challenges: Doesn’t like to spend time in the kitchen • Ate well but wasn’t feeling great • Hashimoto’s antibodies • Ovarian cancer • Menopause
Her story: I’m in menopause and today even though I stopped taking bio-identical hormones and I had a hysterectomy, I feel better than ever. I attribute it to food. • I stopped taking bio-identicals as they were not addressing the root causes of my menopause symptoms. I feel great now. • As an ovarian cancer survivor, I’ve been on a health journey for a long time so this program was all about filling in the gaps. • By eating right for my body, my Hashimoto’s antibodies came down. • As a person who is always on the go, I really loved the On-the-Go Guides – of wraps and salads.

Joanna Maclean

“Reversed my insulin resistance after finding it impossible to shift any if much weight at all.”

“I joined Cooking for Balance as I had previously worked with Magdalena and loved her meticulous approach, her recipes and most of all her vast knowledge. I have taken my health to a new level by learning things that I would never have found anywhere else. I am now confident in making bone broth and fermented foods and I have a much better understanding of gut health. A few months after starting the two programmes I was told I had reversed my insulin resistance after finding it impossible to shift any if much weight at all. There is not a day now where I do not make something from the programme my favourites being salmon dip, kale and avocado breakfast, and my own smoothies from the smoothie builder. It really is all done for you. Thank you Magdalena!

Lisa Marie McClung

Challenges: Extreme hot flashes • Night sweats • Adrenal fatigue • Former ER/PR breast cancer patient
Her story: I started with the Farmer’s Wife’s Breakfast, moved onto the fermented vegetables, got the maca, camu camu, flax, sunflower and sesame seeds, then tried the chi and chocolate bomb muffins, root vegetables, and bone broth. I look forward to trying new recipes weekly. It is fun super easy and really tasty food.
I truly feel amazing, with no restless nights and I must give thanks to Magdalena for her recipes and protocol to balance my hormones naturally.

About Magdalena, your Host

For years, I struggled with hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, fatigue, acne and migraines. I lived through bouts of mood swings, anxiety attacks and brain fog — to the point of not recognizing myself anymore.
I was your proverbial “good eater” and that’s probably you, too. The problem is: it’s not about “good or healthy food” in generic terms but about what your body does with the food you are eating, even the good food.
I took my own health into my hands by drastically changing my diet and adjusting it to what it loves and heals with. This resulted in bringing Hashimoto’s disease into remission and reversing adrenal fatigue and estrogen dominance.
Today I’m living a symptom-free life and I’m on a mission to help YOU do the same.
I didn’t come from a family of foodies and chefs. And, in all honesty: I don’t even like to spend too much time in the kitchen. Therefore, my meals are simple and quick.
Given my Eastern European roots, then having lived in South East Asia and China for most of my adult life and later in beautiful Iceland, California and Colorado, you might find my perspective on food, its preparations and flavors to be a refreshing change in your own kitchen.
In 2018, I’ve been published by the prestigious Harper Collins.
I’m beyond excited to guide you on this culinary and healing journey.

Recipe Library Sneak Peek

The comprehensive, hormone-focused online cooking program
that will transform how you feel and look forever.


What is the format?

The Eight Modules will be delivered online on your members’ portal, all you need is internet access and a browser to watch them from a link we send you. The rest of the content is in the form of online videos (some recipes), PDFs (like our guides) and recipe pages. You can use your computer, iPad or iPod to view the content.

Where are the classes?

All classes and content are delivered online so you can partake from anywhere in the world. This is a Do-It-Yourself program so you can do them in your own time. We will be releasing the classes (even though they are prerecorded) every week to you, to pace things :-).

How much time will I need each week to cook?

It’s absolutely up to you. I’m not a fan of spending too much time in the kitchen, therefore I will teach you how to make nutritious meals in less then an hour per day.

What if I don’t know how to cook?

I created a segment that teaches the basics of cooking and food preparation. You will never feel intimidated by the recipes (they are really simple) or videos (even simpler). And remember, I’m not a professional chef either so if I can do it, so can you!

Will this program help me if I lost my thyroid?

Yes, it definitely would. 50% of people I work with lost their thyroid due to radiation or cancer. Even though you are taking some form of synthetic or natural thyroid replacement (like Synthroid or Armour), the health of your gut and liver will directly impact how you metabolize and use the medication to feel well. Many people who follow my protocol reduce the doses even if they have no thyroid.

Can this program help me if I had a full/partial hysterectomy or mastectomy?

Absolutely! When you lose a gland or body part, your body still produces other hormones and depends on the health of your gut, liver and sugar levels to use these hormones. Even if you are on bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, the new way of eating will help your body use these hormones more effectively.

Can this program help me if I have thyroid nodules, breast lumps and ovarian cysts?

Absolutely! The hormonal imbalance that often leads to these conditions is called estrogen dominance and we will extensively cover how to use food and some supplements to support and reverse this condition.

Would I be able to reduce or get off my thyroid medication?

Reduce, yes, very likely under the supervision of your doctor. Many people start experiencing symptoms of being “hyper” which is a sign that it’s a good time to talk to your doctor about reducing the dose. Getting off thyroid medications takes time and it depends on the damage your thyroid had endured over the years. Most thyroid conditions are autoimmune-related; it’s the immune system that launched an attack on the thyroid. In this program, you will learn how to address that attack so healing happens.

Will I need to buy any protein powders or additional supplements?

Absolutely not. We will only be working with real food.

Is Cooking for Balance suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

About 60% of the recipes are vegetarian and vegan. I do not focus or promote this way of eating as I’ve found that only a small percentage of people
thrive as vegans or vegetarians. Hormones are made of proteins and in spite what the vegeterian community says, there are specific amino acids that are not present in plant-based proteins. Having said that, I don’t promote eating bacon all day long either and you will see that I’m a big proponent of 70% of our diet being plant-based. Please also note that plant-based proteins come from beans, legumes, soy, nuts and seeds which unfortunately are not easily digested and they can cause many health issues. Many vegans and vegetarians will not agree with me here but please remember that I am not dogmatic in my approach, I simply work with approaches that create healing for my clients. I have turned many vegans and vegetarians to eating small amounts of animal proteins (often starting with bone broths or fish) and this is where we finally see improvements. If you have exhausted all options and you are still not feeling better, this program could be a good starting point for you. Sometimes to heal, we need to honor what our body needs and not what you we think is good for us.

Are the meals in Cooking for Balance suitable for women with PCOS, history of cancer, menopause, candida, histamine intolerance, etc?

They absolutely are. I created the program with that in mind. We have protocols that are specifically for PCOS, estrogen dominance (women with breast lumps and cancer should use these), menopause, thyroid, Hashimoto’s and more. All recipes are searchable by anti-candida and low histamine tags. Where possible, the recipes contain instructions how to modify each recipe to comply to low FODMAPs, low histamine, anti-candida, etc.

Are the meals in Cooking for Balance suitable for families and men?

They totally are!

Will I need to buy any protein powders or additional supplements?

Absolutely not. We will only be working with real food.

How long will I have access to these materials?

For life.

What other support will I get?

We have a vibrant online community of women who have done this program. We support each other and I, Magdalena, go there on a daily basis to support our members.
