I think for many of us, March is the month when we think about change. The clocks. The weather. Our winter to spring wardrobe. It’s also a perfect month to change up our diet. To put aside those heavier comfort foods and bring on the colorful, lighter and healthier fare that’s just starting to pop up in the produce department.
So, it’s kind of fitting that March is also National Nutrition Month – a time that I like to remind everyone healthy eating can mean different things to different people, and there is no right or wrong when it comes to eating, or any one-size-fits-all diet. If you’ve never done so (or if you feel the need for a tune-up), it’s also a great time to work with a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) to learn some nutrition basics that will help keep you young and aging gracefully, to learn how to make the most of the foods you like, and hopefully, to inspire you to try a few new foods and change up the way you think about food.SO… speaking of working with an RDN, I’ve been dying to share some details about a project I’ve been involved with for the past few months, and National Nutrition Month seems like the perfect time!
I’m working with a brand-new company called Lightwell Health, and we’re focused on bringing women who are in the prime of our lives together, to be well, eat well, and live well. It’s an interactive community that’s part health media, with interesting topics on nutrition, weight management, women’s health issues, stress reduction, sleep problems – really, anything and everything that we each experience as we mature.
Lightwell also offers a group healthy eating program, called Eat Well, Live Well, which is run by registered dietitians (including me!), and designed to teach, challenge, and motivate you to tune into your body and learn how to nourish it, by replacing the foods that are preventing you from being your healthiest self, with new ones that will make you thrive from today forward.
The first Lightwell Eat Well, Live Well program will start April 3, and after a week of helping to get you ready, we’ll dive into a 3-week program which features educational and informational videos, lots of information about the various steps you can take to make positive changes in your diet, and tools to help you move forward. We’ll have lots of recipes for you to choose from, meal planning and grocery shopping tools, and most importantly, an interactive community of women just like you, who are interested in taking charge of their health. We’ll chat weekly via phone, or if you like, daily via email or a private Facebook group and share struggles, successes, tips, and encouragement.

And here’s the best part… We’re offering this introductory program at 25% off. Yep, that comes to less than $75 for 4 weeks with your own RDN health coach. I know. CRAZY! Get the details and sign up below.
And about the food… The Eat Well, Live Well program is not a restrictive cleanse, detox, juice-fast, or any other kind of quick-fix program. It’s focused on a lots of plant-based meals, but there’s also something for every type of eater, and you’ll get to choose the foods that you prefer. Oh, and by the way, just a warning: You may lose a few pounds, improve your blood pressure, and your blood sugar, and just plain feel better because there’s a lot of healthy goodness coming your way. You’re welcome.
