Greetings Fellow Whole-Foodies! If you have been searching for a group to continue your growth and education on the whole food revolution this is the Meetup for you. Whether you are a nutritional neophyte looking to expand your normal diet choices to include more REAL food, or an advanced practitioner looking to share your experience and consult with other elders in this Health Tribe, I encourage you to join us for a meeting and see what you can learn and/or teach to others in our shared community. The purpose of this group is educational and experiential and so the focus will be on the individual learner and their experience incorporating whole food into their diet and wellness plans. Often it is difficult to make positive changes in an indifferent or negative environment and so it is the hope that this group will serve as the positive reinforcement needed to convert lasting change in healthy choices. Beginners are encouraged and veterans are always welcome to continue growth by seeing the path "through the eyes" and experiences of those just starting out. All are welcome! Meetups will consist of member shared experiences, whole food education, recipe sharing, local sourcing quality/concerns, Q & A and breakout sessions. Like many, I started my Health Journey looking to transform my body for performance and learned many valuable lessons along the way. As a teacher/coach and health/wellness professional, my advanced certifications in Clinical Whole Food Nutrition allow me to help my patients reach their advanced health goals and compliment a natural approach to healing in my West Hartford practice.
