Nutrition Series

Let’s Get Real…Food  Isn’t all food real, you ask? Not really. Much of what we get in the grocery store is filled with things that prevent you from feeling your best and nourishing your body. This 8 part series looks into each food group and how you can make the best choices when purchasing and preparing food.

Real Food Challenge   Think along the lines of The Biggest Loser. This challenge focuses on food rather than exercise, and does not guarantee weight loss, but it has been shown to help people sleep better, think better, get off of medications, and lose weight. This 4 part series challenges you to look into the foods you eat and cut out the junk. All the while it teaches you how to plan, shop, and prepare meals that are good for you. 

Sugar Coated Truth   Are you addicted to sugar? This 3 part series reviews where sugar is found in our diet, simple steps to break free from the holds of sugar, and  ways to address our sugar habits.

 

Series costs are dependent on the series and can include catering through Bon Vie Kitchen. Contact us for details and prices.

“Daphne and her assistant did a fantastic job of presenting and demonstrating the benefits of good nutrition.  Her slide presentation provided detailed and easy to understand information on healthy eating and the foods that we should avoid.  Everyone in our group rolled up their sleeves and helped to prepare dinner at our office.  We thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on cooking demonstration.  Daphne is a delightful person and her experience as a licensed and registered dietitian was definitely seen during her three-hour presentation.  Thanks Daphne!”

“The bottom line goes up when my employees are happy.”  Have you ever heard that statement?  Talk about illogical!  At least that is what many may think.  But, I have experienced the reality of happy employees.  When I decided to have an event I had no expectation of the “happiness factor” I was about to experience.  The first night we met the class instructors, Daphne and Molly, all were ready to begin reclaiming their kitchens.  Well, when I walked into work on Friday, expecting business as usual, I witnessed an incredible spirit of happiness.  My guys were talking about greens, meals they were eating, and foods they were cooking. They were smiling and laughing…WOW!  Then, for the following class spouses came, and the enthusiasm grew.  This momentum continued during the entire 30 day challenge!  They started shopping at farmers markets, reading labels, and supporting each other.  This brought our team spirit to a new level.  Then, the medical results started pouring in.  Reports were astounding. Employees cheered each other on, and encouragement became the new norm!  Managing employees comes with its own set of challenges, but the effort of sharing Real Food with them lays a foundation that just makes it all go so much smoother. My thanks and appreciation to all those participating. I BELIEVE Happy Employees make Happy Customers!
