What to Expect Your First Two Appointments?

 Our first two appointments are both 60-minute visits. We will discuss your completed initial nutrition assessment form in addition to your individual nutrition goals and challenges. We will start with a general meal plan, education, and personalized goal setting. In your second appointment we will provide you with your personalized meal plan and shopping list as well as discuss continued goal setting for ultimate success. Appointments are made within two to four weeks. 

Why Two Appointments? Why Follow Up Appointments?

 We don’t perfect driving or a golf swing in one session, and the same with our nutrition goals. One can go on a diet, but within a few months, one goes back to ‘how things were.’ Why? Diets don’t embrace your current lifestyle, your family, your work, your hobbies, and your goals. Shelly does not believe in a ‘quick fix,’ she believes in a full lifestyle change embracing food changes with YOUR lifestyle.  These changes occur over a period of time, not in one visit. Shelly is your food friend and will help you incorporate these changes into your life in all our sessions.

Supermarket Tours

 It’s 4pm and you have no idea what to cook. Your refrigerator and pantry are pretty much empty and after skimming through your trusted cookbooks, you realize you are missing many of the ingredients of your favorite meals.
