Grocery Shopping
One-on-One Tours
Brooke enjoys taking clients of all ages on personalized one-on-one and group shopping trips. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and traditional grocery stores are great places to stock up on healthy items for your personalized healthy diet. Brooke tailors her shopping to the individual, so each experience is unique and designed to fit the client’s preferences. Dietary concerns are always taken into account. Brooke’s philosophy is that having the right “tools” (foods) sets you up to make the healthiest food choices. If you have easy access to fresh fruits and vegetables in your refrigerator, you will be more likely to integrate these into your meals.
Healthy Food Delivery Service
Have healthy, fresh foods delivered to your home by a registered dietitian on a regular basis! This allows you easy access to making good food choices and eating a balanced diet, no shopping required.
Targeting Emotional Eating
People often eat for every reason other than true physical hunger. Boredom, stress, loneliness, anger, the sight and smell of tempting foods can all be triggers to eat. Recognizing this tendency is a great first step in learning to eat for pleasure. In general, eating when one is hungry and stopping when satisfied (80% full) is best. Learn strategies to recognize what triggers emotional eating and how to effectively handle any food situation in a healthier way. If this sounds like you, the Emotional Eating package may be just what you are seeking.
