Maybe your loved one has been newly diagnosed with Allergies, Food Sensitivities, Autism or ADHD and you’ve heard there are proper ways of eating that support optimal cognitive, behavioral, and digestive functioning. Well  I am here to help. I offer a combination of  scientific, evidence based, and traditional nutrition  intervention information and counseling on everything from IBS to transitioning to a Gluten Free/Casien Free diet.

Home Visits with Meal Planning, Preparation and Cooking Instruction

Home visits are a great way to learn nutrition, meal preparation, cooking, shopping, and storage tips that are custom fit for your budget, schedule and lifestyle.  Home visits include:

In-Home Nutrition Counseling Sessions

Sometimes, the best approach to making long standing changes to your eating and lifestyle habits is to have me come to your home to provide guidance and direction.  Your home visit will include a  personalized nutrition counseling session, where I will assess how well you are eating and suggest a few changes that can help improve your results.

Pantry Makeover

At your request, I will help give your pantry a makeover, suggesting food items that might provide a better “nutrition bang for your buck”. During this service, you will learn a few tricks for reading nutrition labels on foods and you will get a highly-individualized grocery shopping list of foods that will help you reach your nutrition goals. Clients that request this service are often surprised at how fast they reach their nutrition goals!

In Home Cooking Demonstration

In today’s fast paced world, it is sometimes difficult for busy professionals or busy families to find the time to cook. This time crunch, coupled with a lot of conflicting nutrition information and new “food rules” can make it difficult to eat and cook healthy meals at home. Whether you have high cholesterol or diabetes that you are trying to manage or are looking to help your family and yourself lose weight, I can show you how and what to cook in your very own kitchen. Before I come to your home, I will assess what level of cooking instruction is suitable for you, and will give you a list of grocery items (and simple cooking utensils) to purchase before your personal lesson. This lesson is generally one hour long and you will learn how to prepare numerous foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or snacks. My focus is to keep it simple and to empower you to prepare simple meals that you can do on your own after we leave.

Food shopping can be a daunting, especially after a new diagnosis or recommendation from your physician to eat better. No worries!!! You don’t have to go at it alone.  I can take the burden of reading labels and deciphering advertisements away with an aisle by aisle walk through.  We will start  by meeting  at a grocery store of your choice in the Hampton Roads area . During our walk-through, I’ll help you to make better food choices, show you how to read labels, introduce new ingredients, healthy on-the-go options, answer your food and nutrition questions along the way and provide grocery shopping and meal planning tips. The grocery store tour is an hour long and available at any store within a 40 mile radius of Chesapeake, Virginia.
