Corporate Wellness Sessions
Health & Wellness in the workplace is a must, considering the pace of our day-to-day lives and the various stressors continuously acting on our minds and bodies. Being PROACTIVE is key!
Planning for daily nutrition is a key component of optimal health and wellness, in addition to effectively managing healthy levels of stress, enjoying regular physical activity and attaining sufficient, quality sleep on a regular basis. These factors, in conjunction with one another, support enhanced performance and productivity in the workplace.
This service aims to target the needs of the particular corporate staff at hand, so that the session(s) are highly meaningful in consideration of the work environment and demands of the roles the employees execute on a day-to-day basis.
These sessions encompass a variety of themes:
• Nourishing the Mind for Mental Wellness and Performance

• The Power of an Anti-Inflammatory Diet
A diet rich and varied in anti-inflammatory foods supports the reduction and minimization of inflammation in the body. The guidelines and recipes provided will have you distinguishing between anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory foods with ease, including flavourful ways in which to prepare and enjoy a variety of anti-inflammatory options.

Unpacking the 2019 Canada’s Food Guide
With the release of the 2019 Canada’s Food Guide, appearing substantially different from past versions, questions arise! Together, we unpack this document and unlock the keys to a whole food-based, anti-inflammatory diet and a balanced plate!
Gut Support to the Rescue!
Health truly does start in the gut, as the state of the gut impacts the functioning of all other physiological systems of the body. Explore various food and beverage selections, as well as strategic supplementation options that nourish and support both the microbiome and lining of the digestive tract for optimal digestive health.
The pH of the foods and beverages we consume impacts our internal environment, contributing to balances or imbalances in the body. Inflammation loves to breed in acidic environments, so alkalizing foods are crucial as part of one’s day-to-day diet! Together, we’ll hone in on whole foods and simple beverages that support alkalinity, in order to minimize inflammation in the body.
Food Selection 101
There is much nutritional jargon out there! This workshop will navigate several nutritional terms we regularly encounter, as well as a number of other commonly-asked-questions including: Which items are best purchased from an organic source? What food label ingredients and food packaging terms should I be on the lookout for? How do I best store produce to reduce spoilage and food waste? What staple ingredients belong in my pantry? These are common questions, and this workshop has the answers!
Lecture-style sessions run for 60 minutes in length and are designed for a group of up to 25 participants. Please note that I require about 30 minutes in the space for set-up, as well as a projection screen. All participants will be provided a handout of take-away notes (a summary of the key points of information addressed during the presentation), as well as a mini recipe bundle that incorporates the nutrients/food ingredients highlighted in the presentation.
A consultation (up to 30 minutes in duration) with the booking staff member, prior to the Corporate Wellness Session, will assist with establishing the theme most fitting for the group of participants, as well as all other booking details required.
