Nutrition Education

Nutrition education is our favorite part of nutrition counseling sessions. We get back to the basics of food in our sessions and discuss the “why” behind our healthy eating advice. Depending on where you are at with your nutrition education level, we are here to answer any and all questions around food. Partnered with behavior change, we believe that a solid foundational knowledge of nutrition can go a long way in creating lifelong healthy eating habits.
