Great question! Keep reading to find out more detail about each step. . .

Step 1 – Refrigerator and Pantry Cleanout

During the initial cleanout of your refrigerator and/or pantry, Melissa will help you discard and donate unhealthy food options and get rid of unused products that are taking up valuable shelf space. She will show how to recognize ingredients listed on labels that might look harmless, but are in no way natural or good for you. You will both discuss healthier and tastier options for your favorite “go-to” meals. With Melissa by your side, you will begin to build a solid and healthy food foundation from which to grow upon.

Step 2 – Food Shopping Tour

Depending on which package you choose, Melissa will next accompany you to a local farmer’s market and/or a grocery store of your choosing. You will be introduced to delicious food options that will expand your palate and make eating healthy more fun than you ever thought possible. Melissa works closely with your budget and she’ll discuss how to do strategic meal planning (whether at home or on-the-fly).

Step 3 – Cooking Lessons

The final phase includes hands-on cooking lessons. You will learn how to approach your new food choices with confidence and excitement. Melissa provides you with several recipes that will awaken and expand your palate. Healthy eating will be associated with delicious eating every time!
