Theresa “Sam” Houghton, of GreenGut Wellness, is launching Empowered for Healthier Living, her second round of group consulting, in January (the first was last spring). It includes six, one-hour in-person wellness consulting sessions; one, two-hour shopping tour of local grocery stores, in which participants learn how to read labels, shop for healthy options and plan meals around what’s on sale; and one, two-hour, hands-on cooking class to teach plant-based cooking skills and help participants learn how to prepare healthy meals, even when they’re busy. Sessions begin from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., January 16 through March 5, 2018.
Houghton holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and graduated with honors from the Bauman College Nutrition Consultant program. She explains that the group setting allows people to take advantage of the personalized wellness consulting services GreenGut Wellness offers and get an introduction to additional services such as shopping and cooking help.
The grocery shopping tour will take participants to Honest Weight Food Co-Op and other area markets. The group consulting sessions will take place in Rensselaer. For more information and specific details, call 518-545-8370 or visit GreenGutWellness.com.
