Mila’s Meals March Newsletter – Big News!


Jeepers – but 2021 sure is making up for all that didn’t happen in 2020!

Every day I delay writing this newsletter, means there is more I have to add to it! Now there’s a lot!


Little snippets below – follow links to discover more. And please share this email with anyone you feel may benefit from it.



Owning the grey!

This is me!


I recently re-introduced myself on the Mila’s Meals Instagram page because so much as changed from when I first published my book and from when I started Mila’s Meals – not least of which is me and my appearance! Yes… I’m owning the grey and the magnificence of being 45.


Find out what has changed as what has stayed the same in this Instagram Post.

Mama’s Medicine


My mission now has a new angle – inspiring & empowering the Moms to nourish themselves!


Having seen Mila safely though the dependent years, I ended up in a place where my own health and well-being had been neglected. And I see this happening with most of the moms around me too. So join me on my new Mama’s Medicine Instagram page where I will be nurturing the nurturers!

My Health Coaching Practice

I have recently moved into my very first own “office” at The Center in Noordhoek, Cape Town. I could not have dreamt of a more magnificent space to “work” in. You have to see and feel this space! Created by Robyn Viljoen (founder of Faithful To Nature) and now light worker, certified Life Activation Practitioner, Initiated Ritual Master and Celtic Shaman.


The synergies between our modalities are such that The Center is Integrative Nutrition in action! Here you will find wellness practitioners using both Secondary and Primary Foods* to nourish your mind, body, soul and spirit.


From my health coaching and bio-resonance therapy to Robyn’s various spiritual healing modalities, to Karen’s chakra and dance session, to crystal healings, aromatherapy, breath-work, yoga and mindful movement – ohhhh it’s a wellness feast!


We look forward to welcoming you to The Center!


* Primary food is Life Purpose, Movement, Relationships and Spirituality.
Secondary Food is the food that goes in your mouth 😉


Meta-Therapy & Quantum Bio-Resonance

I still see Food as Medicine and use it as my primary tool for transformation in my coaching practice. But I am now fascinated by Energy Medicine. I have invested in a quantum bio-resonance machine to help me discover the imbalances and disturbances in my clients’ physiology and psychology. (Yes, it scans the chakras and emotional psychology too!)


This scan can be part of your Health Coaching consultation and program or as a stand-alone appointment. All information gathered from the scan can be shared with your primary health care provider/physician.


Please email me for more information (My Health Coaching website is still in development.)

The Book has wings!


I have cut the apron strings! 


Yes, I handed over The Book to a Blue Weaver – book distributors – so I can focus my time and energy on my coaching clients and create new content like Meal Plans and Workshops.


So now, Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics is now available at the following book stores…

If your local bookstore is not listed here, please ask the store manager to order the book for you (it is on their systems – so quick & easy for them to do)!


If you do find the book in the shops, please tag me in a photo! It really will make me so happy (I’m still having “I can’t believe I did that” moments with this book 😉 )

Meal Plans & Shopping Guides

Another new investment is Meal Planning software that allows me to whip out meal plans to suit your every need! I am having so much fun with this – and so grateful that I don’t have to create new recipes for each of my client’s needs 🙂


I will be making some meal plans available to purchase via my website. But if you would like a bespoke meal plan with all your family member’s likes and dislikes, intolerances and healing goals catered to then email me to order a bespoke meal plan.


These ones are available on my website now:

Patreon Page is live!

Catherine Barnhoorn Patreon

I have finally launched my Patreon Page!




Patreon is a platform that allows fans or “patrons” to pay creators for their work. Using Patreon, these creators establish perks and tiers for patrons, offering exclusive content and access to their work in exchange for financial support.


I am an introvert by nature and fiercely protective of mine and Mila’s privacy – which presents an interesting challenge since I want to share my knowledge and experience with the world! Patreon allows me to share openly and honestly with you – my tribe – away from the anonymous “likes” (and algorithms) on social media.


Did you miss the Lunch Box workshop? You can watch the full recording by becoming a Patron.

Imagine your own Transformation

Who would have thought that when I anxiously made that call to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in March 6 years ago, that I would one day be featured on their website!


YIKES! Yes, IIN have asked if they can feature me on their international page! Watch my Instagram page for the announcement when it goes live.


As an IIN Ambassador, I am able to offer you a big discount on tuition fees. Please email me for more info.


IIN is really supporting those who have the dream of becoming a health coach. They regularly have really meaningful discounts on the tuition fees. I don’t always get to posting these discounts, so if you want to be sure to hear about them you need to sign up to their mailing list. Various ways to do that and get something at the same time:

If you are ready to enrol,

Email them here or call:
call us at (877) 780-5410 (U.S.) or +1 (212) 257-6171 (International)

Remember the are in USA – so with the time difference you can call until 11pm SA time.
They will call you straight back so you don’t need to pay for an international call.

– THE END! –
