Mindful Eating Specialty Class

If you are ready to toss the New Year diet tradition and heal your relationship with food, this is the program for you. In this 6-module program, you will not only learn the foundations of Mindful Eating,  but also how to use these concepts when eating for your best health, eating out, and meal planning. You will look at the reasons why you eat and gain the tools, skills, and support you need to avoid emotional eating. You will learn to listen to your body’s cues and how to best respond them. This updated program is packed with new information, research, and fun!

Facilitated by Louise Cruz RDN, LD
