That old saying is true: we are what we eat. If you’re looking for ways to improve your mood, your energy levels, and your overall health, you can start by taking control of what you eat. In today’s climate of bewildering health claims and (mostly) unregulated labels, however, that isn’t easy…and once you manage to choose healthy ingredients, you may not know how to prepare a healthy meal.
Based on my culinary background and my own experiences with weight loss (several years ago, I went from a size 14 to a size 4), I’ve developed a program that provides clients with a wealth of practical knowledge about food and health. From learning how to read labels and shop for healthy ingredients to learning how to cook, “Becoming an Educated Eater” will put you on the path to better health. Clients may choose to participate in the entire six-session program or may opt for the one or two that best suit their needs. Both one-on-one and group sessions are available. (See below for hourly rates.)
I also give talks/workshops to larger groups–please see Speaking Engagements for more information.

Sessions last a minimum of one hour and may be extended to suit the needs of the client. For clients who live in metro Detroit, sessions can be conducted in person; for non-local clients, sessions may be conducted via telephone or Skype.
Workshops can be held in any venue (at community locations such as libraries and schools, at organization/corporate offices, at salons) or for any occasion (celebrations, community events, employee wellness seminars). For maximum effectiveness, sessions are best suited to include eight participants; however, there is no upper limit.
