Not sure if you are going through Perimenopause?
Tired? Moody? Not sleeping well? Eating and exercising like you always have, but gaining weight? Sad? Anxious? Migraines? Foggy-headed? In your 40’s or 50’s? Irregular or heavy periods? Hot flashes? Night sweats? Need more time alone? Feeling particularly creative? Forgetful? You may be entering perimenopause. Since this change can last for up to 10 years, why not embrace it as early as possible, learn what you can, and make the changes that could make you feel fantastic? We hope to have you join us!

What is this going to cost me?
The price for the 3-month program is $54.95/month for three months. ($164.85 total for the course.)
Less memorable and less impactful ways $54.95 can quickly disappear:
- ⅓ of a visit to your doctor (after insurance)
- A quick run to Safeway to grab an ingredient for dinner, and a few other things
- Babysitting for a brief 2 hours
- Less than half an hour of therapy
- ⅓ of one SAT tutoring session for your kid
- Take-out, one night–if you’re lucky!
Why you should spend it on Be The Change: Nourishing Ourselves Through Menopause instead:
- This is about YOU and something that will create positivity in YOUR life
- This is long-lasting. Perimenopause is usually about 4 years of your life but can be up to 10 years. This is an investment for your health, your days, your nights, your comfort, your moods.
- Why not start with natural?! We have the ability to heal with food and lifestyle changes. Starting there could result in positive change and improvements in overall health.
- You deserve to be the best version of yourself, and the people around you deserve to have that best version too.
- Small changes every week can result in BIG change! We are here to help you through this.
It’s important to note early on that not one solution works for everyone with perimenopause–or any health issue for that matter. Any of you who have worked with Little Green before know that bio-individuality is something we stand by: each of us has our own body and each of us has something that makes us tick. Each of us has our own food loves and sensitivities, and each of us is energized by a different kind of exercise. Some of us need more protein, some of us need more fiber, some of us thrive with grains, and some do not. Please take that into account throughout this program. While we are offering healthy solutions that work for many people, you may find that you need something different. We hope that implementing some of these practices into your daily life over the next few months begins to make a positive difference in your perimenopausal journey!
About Our Logo
Our logo was designed by the incomparable, creative, and magical designer Jackie Vann. She worked with us to create what we think is a perfect embodiment of Be the Change. The logo is a flaxseed pod, which is not only beautiful and evocative, but also possibly our favorite menopausal remedy. We love that the pod represents change and evolution, which we ladies go through during this transition, and also conjures up the idea of the female breast. And, take a closer look: do you see the resemblance to the universal woman’s symbol?!
