Spices and Greens


I always thought weight loss required eating plain steamed vegetables and constant hunger


What if you could achieve your ideal, healthy weight and belly without spending all of your free time at the gym or eating food that tasted bland? 

Number of sit-ups to lose 9 inches of belly and 28 lbs: Zero!

Count calories and then feeling hungry: Nope! 

Eat delicious, easy to prepare gourmet meals: Absolutely!   

Contrary to what we’ve been taught about weight loss and dieting, I learned that you can eat your way to weight loss, if you choose the right foods.  And this is especially true when it comes to your bulging midsection.


As a busy mom, I love that I don’t have to cook separate meals for myself and my family of four, and lose weight at the same time!

My name is Joanna and I am the creator of Spices & Greens.

I became a proud mom after giving birth to a set of twins in late 2014.  Over a year later, my waistline remained at a stubborn 36 inches despite my various attempts at dieting, while kind-hearted New Yorkers continue to get up to offer me their seats when I enter a crowded subway car because I still looked pregnant… 

It was time for me to take action.

I’ve been a believer in the healing powers of food ever since my quest for radiant skin through drinking green smoothies amazingly ended up healing my nearsightedness too.

I began to further research and test over 100 recipes and ingredients and was finally able to lose 9 inches of my belly and 28 pounds of weight. 

Along the way, I’ve gained more energy, a calm and happy belly as well as a radiant complexion to boot!       

I’ve done the hard work for you.
