Do you find yourself stressing over food instead of enjoying it?

Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert and Health Coach Rachel Druckenmiller, MS, has found an empowering approach that can help you develop a positive, guilt-free relationship with food. Join us for a two-part workshop as Rachel shares foods and mindful eating techniques that can improve your mood, reduce feelings of stress, and create a more satisfying and enjoyable eating experience.

You’ll gain strategies for:

  • Developing a positive, guilt-free, judgment-free relationship with food
  • Increasing your resilience to stress through how and what you eat
  • Influencing your mood through food choices
  • Enhancing your satisfaction with meals and snacks, so you're not tempted to over-eat

You'll experience:

  • Activating your five senses to create a pleasurable eating experience
  • Reconnecting with food, yourself, and the community around you
  • Samples of Rachel’s four favorite mood-boosting foods

You'll learn:

  • The role of gut health in our body’s response to stress
  • The link between stress and digestion
  • Which foods boost or stabilize moods
  • The benefits of mindful and community eating

In addition, nutrition researcher Chris D'Adamo, PhD, will provide scientific insight about the connection between food and mood. He'll be happy to take your questions.
