Nutrition and Diet Management

How are those New Year Resolutions going? Remember, if you mess up, it’s ok! Be sure to acknowledge it, move on, and make improvements the next time! If these are changes you are planning to make forever, there are going to be occasional slipups, especially when you are just getting started! You are still learning what works and what doesn’t.

Check out this awesome video about how to stay consistent with weight loss!

Be sure you guys have an appointment on the books with me if you are looking to talk about your individual nutrition. See also the info for this Friday’s virtual cooking event. I hope you will join me!

Virtual Cooking Event

This is an event where I will send the grocery list out ahead of time. We will then cook the food. You will video me and cook the food in the comfort of your own kitchen for you and your family to enjoy. I need to know soon regarding the interest in this. Here are a few dates I am available to offer the class. We will choose one date. Please let me know what works best for you.

Happy New Year!

For many of you, we are starting fresh, but for others, we are picking up on previous goals or expanding upon them. Regardless of where you are in your journey, it is important to set regular SMART goals. See the link below for more about effective goal-setting. Be ready to discuss during your next one-on-one consultation with me and in class. Check out the other events we have coming up below!

I hope all of you that were celebrating had a wonderful Christmas! This is the last update of 2021! I have seen so many positive changes happen this year, and I can’t wait to see what we do in 2022! If you are feeling like you need an extra push, be sure to set up an appointment with me.

Here is a final video regrading inflammation, one of the components of immune system dysfunction. I also included an interesting article about icing injuries.

With the holidays and flu season in full swing, we will be focusing on food and the immune system for the month of December. A quick note: no one food can “boost” your immune system. There is a lot that goes into a healthy immune system, but the health choices we make may help our immune systems to function in a way that is optimal for each of us as individuals. If you see a food or ad that says something is immune-boosting, you may be wasting your money. I will clear this up for you more throughout this coming month.

To go along with this month’s theme of healthy eating for the holidays and healthy plate modeling, see this excellent article below about tips to choose the healthiest options and the right amount of each food. This also provides great tips on how to add flavor to meals!! Don’t forget about our class tonight as well (see details below). Hope to see you there! Bring friends.

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT:

For the month of November, I was planning on having some professionals join our next in-person class. Each participant of the class would make a healthier version of a family-favorite Thanksgiving dish. Each  participant would sign up to make a dish of their choosing on their own time. They would then bring in the dish to share with the group and our special judges.

I was hoping to do this on Monday, 11/15 at 5:30 pm. My judges are available, but I want to make sure there are several participants before they make the trip/work adjustments. Let me know if you plan to attend, and please feel free to spread the word/bring friends! We are hoping to eat well and award health-related prizes.

I must know by next Monday, 11/8 by 5 pm. If you are interested, please call or email me to sign up. Those who would just like to come to eat/observe are welcome to do so.
