We’ve all thought about getting healthier in both our mind and bodies. We say we’re going to start a meditation practice and eating well… Then time goes by and we don’t start.
Maybe you really would like to create a mindfulness meditation practice to help with your anxiety, but you don’t know where to start because it sounds scary and you are the type of person who just CANNOT meditate?
Maybe you’ve wanted to eat healthier brain-nourishing foods, but it’s just too hard to keep track of your family’s, your dog’s, AND your diet?
Yes, living a mindful life has proven to be an almost magical (and scientifically proven) solution for so MANY. People from Oprah to Will Smith praise the beneficial effects of mindfulness. And yet, we all still find it so hard to care for ourself first. But here’s the thing: If you don’t care for yourself first, there will be nobody to care for your dog. So why not use our pets as our tools and our teachers to creating a life we love living free from

“ This program didn’t just help me get back into balance? it truly helped me build a deeper bond with my dogs. And you know what? If you had asked me before I started if I already had a deep bond with the pups, I would’ve said absolutely. Because I did. But when I got stressed out, I didn’t have as much to give them (even though I felt like I was giving everything I had). I was distracted, I was frustrated, and I was impatient? none of which are very conducive to enjoying a deep bond with anything, including pets. Dogs being the amazing creatures they are, my dogs loved me unconditionally anyway, but I noticed they weren’t as happy as before. They were picking up on my stress, and it was bringing them down. I had to change. I know how to meditate, but her program promised to help me become more mindful with the help of my dogs. Mind blown! I had to try it. And it had the bowl part too! The keto diet. Having just gotten started on the keto diet, her recipes came at a perfect time for me. So, I jumped in with both feet. And you know what? Her program delivered. On Every. Single. Promise. I have to tell you a secret. I’m notorious for not finishing online courses that I start. But I needed this one, and the idea of doing it with my dogs was beyond exciting. It became a personal journey for me, but before too long, I was looking forward to each of the daily exercises. I was meditating and exploring what, exactly, was important to me. And pretty soon, things that would’ve completely stressed me out before just became things that I was experiencing without reacting to them. Even after finishing the 30 days, I’ve continued to return to many of the meditations and lessons in Soul to Bowl. I will probably continue to return to them, if not daily, then at least several times a week. Why? Because they make such a difference in staying balanced and calm and centered. And I don’t want to go back to that place of stress and anxiety and freneticism. Ever. And as for the diet? Her recipes became part of my keto repertoire (let me tell you, the cauliflower mac and cheese is ahh-mazing!), and in the first month of doing keto, I lost almost 17 pounds.”Kristin Clark author of Raw Pets Digest
“The moment we received the heartbreaking cancer diagnosis for our dog, Nikki has guided us through it with nothing but positive light and love. From diet changes, to essential oils, to just changing our way of thinking to a more mindful approach, has made such a difference in all our lives. Our dog is alive and thriving and we couldn’t have done it without her!”Jessica Reynoso @dougspurpose
“I sought out the advice of many other dog experts and it did not give me the results I so desperately hoped for. But after using some of Nikki’s mindfulness techniques and followed her guidelines for better food for dogs, my dog Bruno has become the most vibrant, obedient, calm happy dog I knew in my soul that he could be. He’s now at optimal health, and respecting our space together. I can’t believe how well I understand Bruno now, and how much that makes him feel secure.”Nicole Carillo
“Nikki’s advice and content has helped me so much in so many aspects of my life. It’s helped me to be a better dog mom and be more connected with my dogs and also a better partner to my boyfriend. Overall, her message has helped me to stop feeding into negativity and has given me the ability to be at my best for the ones around me as well as for myself! ”Kristie Simeon
WHEN DOES THE PROGRAM START?
This program is entirely at your own pace. Although it is important to practice mindfulness every day, I understand that life can get messy. Therefore, you can always return to any exercise for when life happens. And when it does happen, pop over to the facebook group for support!
I HEAR MINDFULNESS HAS ROOTS IN BUDDHISM. IS THIS PROGRAM RELIGIOUS?
This 30-day program is non-denominational, yet has elements of self spirit-improvement in it. The only risk is that you may be a transformed person when you’re done. One does not need to be Buddhist to pay attention in this way, any more than one needs to be Italian to enjoy pizza. Moreover, it’s a psychological and scientific technique; a systematic attentional training. It is inviting you to be aware moment-by-moment without judgment. That’s it!
WHAT PROTEINS DO YOU USE IN THE MEATEATERS RECIPES?
The proteins used include: Chicken, turkey, beef, fish and a Vegetarian Option. This program does not use pork (although there are pork options in it). There is also an entire anti-inflammatory recipe book that is for people who eat vegan.
ARE THERE VEGAN RECIPES?
Yes! newly added to this new format is the addition of a vegan recipe book.
CAN I DO THIS WITH MY CAT?
I don’t have any cats, but the phrase “It’s like herding cats” comes to mind. It may be difficult to get your cat to cooperate in the meditative practices. That being said, it's not impossible to mindfully meditate with any animal for stress reduction purposes. Just know the terminology used throughout is based in dog mom lingo. Also something to note: the diet suggestions are also not appropriate for cats or any other animal except dogs.
ARE THERE REFUNDS?
Commitments are our most powerful super-human abilities. That’s where transformation lives. If you choose to join me inside Soul To Bowl, no refunds are available because we’re in the business of honoring commitments we make to ourselves and our dogs. I believe with every fiber of my being that this program creates change and lasting transformation. You need to be ALL-IN and commited to reducing your stress. Don’t test the waters. Dive in. You don't have anything left to lose but your happiness.
I'D LIKE TO GO AT MY OWN PACE, IS THAT POSSIBLE?
The Soul to Bowl program is entirely self-paced. You will have access to this course and any additions forever. Remember, at your own pace does not mean whenever you find the time. This program is a commitment and will only work if you do. Practicing mindfulness regularly is important to establish a routine with it.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO SET ASIDE?
I tried to make this program as real life-friendly as possible. Each exercise typically spans from 5-30 minutes, or as long as you would like to take to really feel relaxed and calm. Getting to that place is different for everybody, but you will find that comes faster and faster as you practice. This time is a small sacrifice for the multitude of benefits that will come. For the food portion: on average, each meal takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Some less, some more. A lot of these meals you can make ahead of time.
