I like several of her online recipes, but I bought one of her cookbooks and was really disappointed. It used a lot of ingredients that were considered "healthy" in the 80s that I don't consider healthy now (like a big emphasis on low-fat dairy, etc.)

I am a student at AAMI and a homeschooling mom to 4. I started while pregnant with #4. It has been perfect for me so far. I love the program. Like you, I know that I won't be ready for an apprenticeship for a few years. It has been great to focus on my studies and prepare during this time. I am so happy with my decision. I am also taking an herbalism course and finishing up my doula certification. Both programs have fit in very well with my coursework at AAMI.
I also trained through toLabor, and it was wonderful. I'd definitely recommend them. ToLabor's standards of practice fit better with how I want to practice than the SoP for the other organizations.

Things are going well here I'm almost ready to submit my orientation for AAMI. I am so excited!
We eat something similar from the Whole Foods Market cookbook. They call them Chocolate Earth Balls. Love them. I'd also recommend guacamole with something for dipping. I love guacamole, and you can get a mild one if spiciness is a concern.
Yes, and you may want to try searching for MTB as well. It is abbreviated in many of the threads.
