Be empowered by your plate

Dive into a holistic approach to nutrition, focusing on whole foods like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, while reducing red meats, refined grains, and sugars. This session is particularly helpful for individuals who are post-treatment and post-medical supervision, who might be interested in making healthy swaps as they revisit their relationship with food. Our Health Coach is certified with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Love notes from our guests

I could have sat all day in the health coaching class. The woman running the class was so excited and knowledgeable which made us excited to learn! I needed that. I was one of four women during my stay and it was the one session that we all took together at the same time. It was amazing. We got to ask so many questions and given so much information that helped us realize how much is really out there and that we need to be our own advocate when it comes to our nutrition. I bought the cook-book and I've basically been plant-based ever since. That class had such an impact on me and changed my life.
