Finding Your Why and Freedom

There are many factors that negatively affect health.  Stress and emotions may not be the first factors that come to mind but they can be very large contributors to poor health.  This session will address effective techniques to dealing with stress and emotions.  But more importantly it will help you find your “why”, the personal and deep-rooted reason that better health is important to you.

What Is Food sounds like a question that has an easy answer.  But in today’s world, food and “food like substances” can be hard to tell apart.  This presentation will give you the basics of food, including an explanation of macro and micro nutrients, and show you why it is important to eat nutrient-dense foods.  It shows how the proper foods can help you lose weight and keep it off and even prevent and in some cases overcome chronic disease.  It’s time to start living to the fullest and enjoy a disease-free and long life!

Finding Financial Freedom in Your Fridge

There is no aspect in life where finances are not a factor in decision making.  Over-and-over again we hear, “it’s too expensive to eat healthy.”  This simply is not true, either in the short-term or especially in the long-term.  While cheap food is everywhere, the price is paid in health.  This session will show how eating healthfully does not need to be more expensive.  And when you look at the long-term financial consequences of being healthy versus having diet related chronic disease, there is no comparison, BEING HEALTHY SAVES YOU MONEY.  This session will detail the reasons why eating healthy is more financially stable as well as provide practical tips to saving money through healthy foods.
