Welcome to the Choice Premade Brand Studio!
Visual Branding Packages for the Busy Health & Wellness Professional:
With 8 years of experience as a personal trainer, fitness instructor and nutrition coach, I know that creating a brand that stands out is a challenge in this over-saturated market.
That’s why finding your unique voice, both physically and visually, is so important – and expressing them is essential! If you are working hard to be recognized but are feeling overwhelmed with all of the facets of growing a business, you are not alone. Training in person, growing your online presence and trying to be consistent with your message across all of your platforms can be a challenge, especially if you’re taking on all of these jobs by yourself.

These premade brand packages were created for the health and wellness professional who needs a professional, clean-looking, and affordable visual brand, but is not yet ready to invest in a full branding experience.

Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Wings – they are one of the most popular appetizers in America – especially during football season. And with the Super Bowl 2017 right around the corner, I am pretty sure they will be a a hot commodity in homes, bars and restaurants everywhere this weekend.
I love the flavor of hot wings – there is something about them that is so addicting. I’m not sure if it’s the hot tanginess of the hot sauce mixed with the cool and blue cheese creamy dip or what – but they have always been a favorite of mine!
This week, in our 16 Week Transformation Program, we are coming up with a list of healthy apps to have during the Super Bowl – and don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of healthy ways to make wings – but it’s so much fun to try new recipes, especially when they include vegetables, so these are going on our snack list for sure.
1 medium to large head of cauliflower, cut into florets (6 – 8 cups)
1/2 cup of Hot hot sauce (we use Frank’s)
2 tablespoons butter
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper
- Preheat your oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan with the hot sauce, salt and pepper.
- Once the hot sauce mixture is combined, pour over the cauliflower florets in a large bowl, and then mix until all of the cauliflower is coated.
- Pour all of the coated cauliflower, plus any remaining mixture, onto the baking sheet and put in the oven.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower starts to crisp.
- Serve with a healthy blue cheese or ranch dip.
Stayed tuned for a few more healthy app recipes to go along with the big game this weekend!

Nicky Spence, of FitCentric.com, came to me last fall about her visual brand and I was so excited about her business’s vision. Nicky is a busy soon-to-be personal trainer who resides in Dubai, but does quite a bit of traveling. We often laughed about finding times to connect based on time zones and changes!
Nicky wanted to brand her fitness business based on her encouraging, personable and approachable personality while helping other to achieve a broad range of fitness goals.
Here is a peek at Nicky’s inspiration – photo credits are listed below.
Nicky chose a hand-drawn logo with strong, sans serif fonts for her tag lines and sub-marks.

‘Tis the season! It’s time for hot cocoa, peppermint sticks – and lots of holiday treats!
My kids LOVE hot cocoa. We make it a lot during the winter – and they are used to good, old fashioned, homemade hot cocoa. I decided to start experimenting with a hot cocoa mix this year so that we could have something that was super easy to make on the fly, as well as something we could package up and use as gifts for the holiday season.
So this is a recipe for a dry mix – and it is doubled, so it makes a huge batch. We have been able to use it for after school snacks as well as have enough to make substantial amounts of holiday gifts!
In another post, I will show the labels and 8×10 sign that you can print or buy to set up your own warm beverage bar.
Ingredient for the dry mix:
- 10 cups of dry milk
- 1¾ cups of coffee creamer
- 1¾ cups of cocoa
- 7 cups of powdered sugar (or your favorite natural sugar substitute, like Stevia)
- In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients with a whisk or fork until all are mixed together. Make sure to store this in an air-tight container, or divide into batches for gifts. This can be used for up to 8 months.
To make a cup of cocoa, carefully whisk 1 cup of very hot water with 1/3 cup of the hot cocoa mix – serve hot with your favorite hot cocoa toppings like marsh mallows or whipped cream. You could also add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to your cup of cocoa for a burst of extra flavor.
You can also use toppings like peppermint sticks and chocolate chips – so many options – what are your favorite toppings for hot cocoa? Do you usually use an instant mix, or do you opt for homemade hot cocoa?

Happy Holidays! I can’t believe that the 2016 holiday season has already arrived and I hope that this post finds you all doing well!
I am kicking off this season with another round of “Free Download Fridays” – and the first one is a set of printables for a hot beverage station. This year, along with the printables, I am also sharing links to where you can purchase the printables rather than printing them yourself. I know that things can get tricky when dealing with printer settings, or just having to purchase certain papers when you do not have them at the ready.
This set includes:
- an 8×10 “Baby it’s Cold Outside Print”
- 2″ circular hot cocoa mix labels
- 3″ circular hot cocoa mix labels
The 8×10 print is a white graphic over a chalkboard background, and looks great in a white frame.
These glass canisters (as well as the red mugs) were found at my local Dollar Tree! I love the finds at the Dollar Store during the holidays! I used the pre-printed labels for these, but you can print your own if you would like. These are the 3 inch labels, but you can also print the 2 inch files for uses on other types of containers. You can see here that I used an upright jar as well – and this would work with the 2 inch OR 3 inch labels.
Upright mason jar:
The Fiskars circle cutters are great punches for circular labels – you can use the 2-inch cutter on the 2 inch labels, or the XXL much to create a much larger label. (3.5 inch)
Order the 3″ labels here – super easy and I was very happy with the print job!
