Founder and certified integrative nutritional health coach
"Connect with food, embrace life with purpose."
I am the founder and certified integrative nutritional health coach at Endurance2Thrive. This company was founded with the intent to educate and support people (especially children) on how to connect with food positively so that they can better embrace their life with purpose. I am currently involved in writing a grant for a salad bar for our new charter school. We use Place Based Learning as a core to the curriculum and have begun projects such as "seed to table" where we have built portable hoops and started growing our own food. My desire is to eventually have a lunch program that feeds our children local, organically grown produce and meats.
The food in Senior housing, assisted living and nursing homes is pathetic. We need to incorporate healthy whole food in these facilities. I would love to conduct a study in some facilities by incorporating one healthy,organic, whole foods meal a day for 30 days and see what happens. For those that cannot chew well, why can't there be a few vitamix' that can blend organic, whole foods into tasty nutritious green drinks? Or even further, for those that cannot digest as well, why can't a juicer be available so that those people could have one juice a day for 30 days. My hypothesis is that there would be a drastic change in the health of all of the recipients.
