Nutrition Services Offered

Nutrition Assessment – $90 (per person)

60-minute counseling session to determine excessive or deficient essential-nutrient intake. Read more...

A typical dietary assessment begins with the client recording all food and beverages consumed for 3-5 days in a food diary. Food preferences, likes, dislikes, in tolerances, allergies, prescription drug interactions, etc., will be included in the diary.  Data from the diary will be loaded into a nutrient calculator which will reveal excessive and deficient nutrients.  If desired, a tutorial on how to obtain and use a nutrient calculator will be provided. Nutrition intake, shopping habits, cooking habits, medical history, life style factors, and health goals are also considered when recommendations are presented during counseling session. This assessment can be geared toward athletic improvements, weight loss, pre/post-natal nutrition, children, elderly, families, and general preventative nutritional support.

Grocery Shopping Education – $90

60-minute educational session to turn nutrition goals into action. Read more...

This session takes place outside of the grocery store and you are given a virtual tour.  Understanding marketing jargon on food items, learning how to read labels, navigate isles, select fresh produce, and still stay within budget are all important when striving to reach nutrition goals.  Knowing which foods are fine to eat frozen or canned, which foods are fortified, and when organic foods are the best choice can help you save money and even reduce waste.  Where, when, and with whom you shop can also influence nutrition goals and either hinder or help your progress.  Online, in-store, and click-and-collect options are reviewed and an individual shopping plan will be put in place.
