Given all the marketing to which we are exposed these days, people often think of healthy eating with a relatively narrow focus: in terms of eating organic, eating superfoods, or eating lots of fruits and vegetables. In this 1-hour long workshop, we will explore your beliefs around healthy eating, dispel myths, and define healthy eating from my point of view as a registered dietitian. This workshop will be interactive, and I will encourage you to think about how the basic principles of healthy eating relate to your own preferences as you tune into your own body’s needs.
