Uplift Your Mood with Food

Wednesday, September 27th 7-8:30pm

Our mood significantly influences our food choices. When feeling stressed, sad, or anxious, it’s common to turn to comfort foods high in sugar, salt, or unhealthy fats for temporary relief. However, these choices can lead to negative consequences, such as guilt or physical discomfort. Conversely, the food we eat plays a crucial role in regulating our mood. Learn what to eat to support brain health and promote positive emotions. Discover how certain ways of eating fuel our bodies and minds, stabilize blood sugar levels, and provide a steady release of energy. You’ll leave with solutions to improve mood, increase focus, and enhance overall well-being.

Help! I Can’t Get My Teen/Young Adult to Eat Healthy

Wednesday, October 4th 7-8:30pm

When our kids were little, we as parents, had more control over what they ate. Once they became teens, the allure of junk food, fast food, and sugary drinks was often too much for them to resist. In their quest for independence, they make food choices that sometimes go against the best advice or encouragement from their parents. What can we do to help our teens and young adults sail through this rite of passage to a place where they ultimately make healthier food and lifestyle choices? 

REDUCE FOOD CRAVINGS WITHOUT DEPRIVING YOURSELF

Wednesday, November 15th 7-8:30pm

Have you ever heard of anyone being addicted to chicken? Or broccoli? No, never. But, cookies, cakes, and salty snacks, 100%. Why do these foods have a grip on us like no one’s business, especially when we’re under stress? In this interactive session, we’re going to learn why we have cravings for all the wrong foods and how to make new habits to reduce those cravings. You’ll leave the class empowered, inspired, and with an action plan.

Recapturing Your Vitality 

Tuesday, October 10th 7-8:30pm

As women and mothers, we naturally care for others - sometimes at the expense of our own health and well-being. We have built careers, managed households, volunteered, raised families, chauffeured children, and cared for parents and/or partners. All of a sudden, we find ourselves suffering from digestive issues, poor sleep, cravings, stiffness, feeling depleted, and carrying around a few extra pounds. When diets don’t work, we feel like we failed and lose motivation. We want to recapture the vitality we used to have but there's so much confusing and conflicting information in the health world, we sometimes don’t know where to start. Learn what you can do to revive your energy and make healthier food and lifestyle choices. Join Suzy Wood, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach at True Wellness Within, for this informative workshop.

The Sugar Blues

Tuesday, November 7th 7-8:30pm

After eating sugar, we often feel energized and buzzed and then pretty soon, we feel disoriented and exhausted – a classic example of crash and burn. Sugar addiction is the most widespread, least managed health problem in America. People can experience dependence, cravings, and withdrawal. Sugar can influence mood swings, weight issues, diabetes among other health problems. In this interactive workshop, we’ll delve into this sweet temptation and what we can do about its grip on us.

Sick of dieting? Tired of the restrictions, rules, and expensive meals and powders? They might work for a while... but then they don't. The weight returns leaving us feeling disheartened and frustrated. There's got to be a better way.

We’ll uncover why we crave certain foods, learn about chemical ingredients and how they affect us, and dig deep into the quality of our food and the food industry. Come with an open mind and a willingness to participate.
