Ditch those bad habits of yesteryear and allow yourself to shed the layers necessary to reveal the real you. Let’s get down to the bottom of nutrition, so we can build and power the body that lets you be who you are! It’s a new year and that means focusing on you from the inside out. Let’s start fresh this January and get ready to do whatever it takes to move through the next 11 months with ease, poise and a positive attitude. Most people use the start of a new year to make changes in their lives, whether it’s to get organized, connect more with friends, or altering your diet or nutritional habits. Starting with nutrition is an easy one because you’re in control; you are the ultimate decision maker. From breakfast to dinner, snacks to desserts, eating healthy just takes a second to make smart healthful choices. Robin Simpson, wellness coach, healthy eater and culinary instructor is providing recipes to have a well-balanced day full of food that will satisfy any craving or hunger pang. Have you ever gone to the grocery store and had no clue what the nutritional information meant on that box of oatmeal? Well, Simpson is here to help debunk what those labels actually are saying, everything from serving size information to what the most important numbers to watch. We’re also going to expose common food myths, the difference between good and bad carbohydrates, what fats we CAN eat and what secrets actually BOOST our metabolism. The goal of this class is to discover a balance with food and start having a healthier food relationship. We’re eating more, that means lots of vegetables, fruits, grains, lean meats, herbs and spices! Food is not the enemy, so don’t get trapped by eating less, ignite your nutritional life and learn more!
