Healthy Kitchen Cleanup
Let our nutrition Pro come to your office kitchen to take inventory and help organize the food options. Pairing foods is very important to maintaining energy. Rather than pairing the same macronutrient with another, switch it up and pair fats with carbohydrates, or proteins with carbohydrates.
Fit Pros looks at the foods currently offered in your office and creates sample meal menus employees can create on their own – letting employees know they are eating nutritionally balanced meals. Your Pro can offer recommendations on ordering healthy office snacks, and identify the foods with “natural energy boosters” already available in the kitchen.

Fully Embracing You: Improving Your Relationship to Self & Food
For many people self-acceptance is hard to come by even on our best days. We are constantly bombarded with unrealistic, often photo-shopped images on TV or social media telling us how we should look or act. We spend years being the voice within that compares or critiques bits of ourselves, both physically and mentally, which may lead to poor self image, depression, social anxiety, and also impact our relationship with food. We may find ourselves trapped in a judging-guilt-eat cycle that leaves you feeling helpless. However, it is not until we accept others and ourselves that we can have a healthy relationship with food. The aim of this session is to explore ways society and other factors shape perceptions of ourselves and others, learn to implement cognitive-behavioral strategies to practice self-acceptance daily, and psycho-education on mindful and intuitive eating patterns to improve your relationship with food.
