Nutritional classes are offered by Heather Larsen of Eating for PR’s, LLC.

Nutrition Coaching 

Eating shouldn't be rigid, painful or tell you can't go out for pizza every once in a while! Let me help you find balance with nutrition by focusing on a non-diet approach to mindfully eating to nourish your body. We start with a goal setting session where we discuss your goals, and what you hope to gain from nutrition coaching. We explore your relationship with food, eating patterns and health habits to build a road map towards your nutrition goals, followed by weekly online support and customized meal planning services.

Once you have registered and paid online Heather will contact you to get the challenge underway! Tuition $99
