100-calorie snacks, light salad dressing, 97% fat free lunch meat, and light pancake syrup: these foods are good choices, right? After all, they help us limit the bad guys, sugar and fat, and (in theory) reduce our calorie intake. Yet numerous studies demonstrate that the answer does not lie in modified “diet foods,” but rather, in replacing our voracious intake of nutrient-poor, ready-made food with wholesome nutrient-rich REAL food.
With labels in hand, Zonya will present a closer look, challenging whether manufactured diet foods are truly “health foods”. Using evidence-based messaging, she will teach us how we can help our clients think a bit differently about food, and therefore make the switch. And, where the rubber REALLY hits the road, how do we ACTUALLY get people back into the kitchen cooking again, with WHOLESOME REAL FOOD? Zonya has the answers! Including online (and off-line) strategies for simplifying menu planning and grocery list generation. Get ready to help your clients get their families back around the dinner table night after night, excited to prepare and eat succulent, produce-rich, REAL food!
